As a result of having too few credits from his 2nd year, the school's yankee Azuma Wataru is told by his teacher that he has to join a club at school. However he can't seem to fit into any club he tries to join. Then a new girl transfers to his class, Satonaka Mari, who's the most beautiful girl he's ever seen. When he finds out she's in the Girls Rhythmic Gymnastics club, he insists on joining the boys equivalent. Can a yankee student like himself really do Rhythmic gymnastics? And what troubles will it bring letting a Yankee into the club?

I absolutely adored this drama! Originally I just watched the first episode when it came out, and thought it was pretty good, but nothing too special. However, I came back to it, and I'm so so glad I did. The stories are lovely and all the characters have spectacular archs. It's all about working hard, and friendship, and how bonds between people can transform you. The drama leaves you inspired!

And the guys! They're obviously all adorable and the chemistry between the actors is amazing. Throughout the entire show I was squeaking in delight at some of the bromances.

Honestly when I started watching this show, I thought... "wow, a show about male gymnasts... how original, I'm sure this is going to be awful but the guys are pretty I'll stick around for a little." However I was so pleasantly surprised and I can honestly say this is now one of my favorite dramas ever. If you like shows like gokusen or other school dramas which are all about friendship and chemistry, then you'll love this show.

Both dramas are about boys who play a sport that is more popular with women than with men.

Both are about a group of boys who want to make their dreams come true and decide to play a sport which is considered to be unmanly.

I dropped this while it was airing because the first ep wasn't really special, but I picked it up again after all these years, and found that it's really good! I regret dropping it in the first place.

I love the characters and the story development too! And of course, all the boys did a great job training. They make gymnastics look so easy!
