Overview

A motorcycle accident, bone cancer, a speeding truck crashing into a boy on a stolen bicycle—tragic, life-changing events turn the worlds of three young men upside down. Three very different personalities have only one thing in common—their passion for basketball.

Meet Kiyohiko Togawa, a hard-edged, no nonsense wheelchair basketball athlete with a Spartan work ethic and a keen sense of competition. Long before he ever picked up a ball, Kiyohiko was just a skinny little kid in middle school barely beginning to discover his potential to become a track star... until a vicious bout with cancer cut off his track career far too soon.

A motorcycle accident, bone cancer, a speeding truck crashing into a boy on a stolen bicycle—tragic, life-changing events turn the worlds of three young men upside down. Three very different personalities have only one thing in common—their passion for basketball. Critically acclaimed, award-winning manga artist Takehiko Inoue doesn't pull any punches in this stunning portrayal of people struggling with serious life issues. Masterfully combining rich character development with beautifully detailed line art, Inoue, the creator of mega-hit masterpieces Slam Dunk and Vagabond, brings the medium of manga to a completely new level of storytelling.
