Synopsis
Tsutomu Tamaki began working in his father’s plum orchard after he graduated from high school. But Tsutomu isn’t happy with what he sees as his boring life. He’s essentially a dreamer, searching for an outlet that will help him realize his dreams. By chance one day he ends up being coerced into joining a team of poetical boxers. The various unique characters in the team are first pitted against an opposing team from a nearby girls’ high school. They are soundly thrashed. As they begin work on improving their content and delivery, they start to learn each other’s secrets. Tsutomu is attracted to a high school girl, the granddaughter of one of his teammates, a girl who never seems to speak. In his attempts to get her to join the team, he discovers she is burdened with a very severe stutter.
