Hikari (Suzu Hirose) joins high school cheer dance club for the sole reason of cheering on a boy she has known from their junior high days. However, the club’s coach, Saotome (Yuki Amami), is a harsh and no-nonsense task master who suddenly declares: “Our aim is to become U.S. champions! No fringes or boyfriends allowed!” As senior students quickly quit the club, the presence of Hikari’s teammate Ayano (Ayami Nakajo) encourages her to decide to stick with cheer dance for the time being.
Will the club achieve their goal of becoming U.S. champions? These ordinary schoolgirls set off on a long journey toward making their dream a reality.
