Ahiru no Sora Spoilers

The ones who don’t know him perceive Sora as an ordinary teenager who isn’t too tall for his age. But the ones around him very well know that he’s a phenomenal basketball player. Throughout middle school, Sora manages to win several accolades in the world of basketball and then intends to do something similar in high school as well. On the first day of high school, he decides to give the school’s basketball court a little visit just to get a fair idea about the school’s ball scenes. To his dismay, it turns out that no one cares about the sport in high school, let along have a formal team. But despite being extremely disappointed, Sora decides to give it a shot anyway and tries his best to introduce his school to basketball. While he’s at it, his biggest challenge turns out to be a group of delinquents who think they own the school’s court and don’t let anyone play there. So he takes it upon himself to get those boys out of there and along the way, he even befriends a boy named Chiaki who helps him do that.

One day, Sora heads over to the basketball court and challenges the delinquents. He confronts them by saying that he wants to play a game of ball with them. And if they manage to win, he won’t say one more word and walk out of the court. But if he wins, they’ll have to comply with all of his demands and play under him to represent the school’s basketball team. Amused by Sora’s petite demeanor, the boys accept his challenge. But only when they start playing against him, they realize that he’s far better than they had expected him to be. And thus, with this, Sora and his underdog team’s journey begins and they try their best to climb their way to the top.
