Plot Concept: Riku Haruma was obsessed with rugby — but when his physique failed to measure up to the sport’s extreme requirements, he put aside his athletic ambitions in favor of his studies. Yet passion has a way of resurfacing when least expected. When Riku spots Akira Kariya on the rugby field, the sight of him running, jumping and giving the sport his all reignites a fire in Riku’s heart that’s long been dormant. A rekindled passion drives Riku back onto the field and straight toward his dream of the Rugby World Cup, where he’ll use clever tactics and unbridled will to outmaneuver opponents and rise straight to the top of the pack!
