All that matters to 15-year-old Nobara Sumiyoshi is volleyball. She’s an awesome player with big-time ambitions. But sometimes it seems like a girl just can’t get a break in the competitive world of high school volleyball.
Nobara’s family wants her to inherit the role of “young mistress,” serving rich patrons at her family’s old-fashioned Japanese restaurant. No thanks! When Nobara transfers to Crimson Field High School, known for its top-notch volleyball team, it turns out that her mother will stoop to dirty tricks to keep her off the court. With assistance from her feisty Aunt Momoko, who’s got some connections at Crimson Field, Nobara decides to start playing offense. (From

Own opinion:

Since first discovering I think I’ve read ist about five times. I just like the main character, Nobara, and how she tries her best to achieve her dream of playing volleyball. In the beginning there is little hope because she has to find possible members to join the Girls Volleyball Club. All of them are special in their own way. From a studious student to a former gall (actually I don’t really know if “Frog” is still a gall or not) the team around Nobara gathers.
But can falling in love and dating really go along with fighting for the championship? And when the boy Nobara loves is injured and in hospital, does she have the strength to go on? Give it a try and find out 😉 The outcome is of course predictable but who cares 🙂

The one on the very right is Nobara.
