Sumire Suō is 15 years old. She has passion for soccer, but can’t seem to grasp victory. The short-haired girl shows overwhelming power at a soccer game, and makes a great shot from a dribble during a counter, but the match ends when a girl with pigtails named Midori Soshizaki blocks her. The two end up going to a regular high school instead of one that prides itself in athletics, and decide to work together as a team.
