Wakaba Fujitani is a high school sophomore in Fukui Prefecture. Ever since she was little, she has been an ardent fan of the JETS, a top high school cheer dance team from her hometown that won the U.S. national championship for the first time. Her dream is to one day join the team and win the coveted U.S. national championship again. But when Wakaba fails to pass the school’s entrance examination, her aspiration of even becoming a cheer dancer are crushed, and she settles for attending a high school in a neighboring town where she spends most of her time merely cheering at sporting events as part of her school’s weak cheerleading club. Then one day, Yuri, a transfer student from Tokyo with a forceful personality arrives and befriends Wakaba, suddenly suggesting that the two of them try out for the cheer dance team. Startled by this turn of events, Wakaba slowly begins to feel a rekindling of her long-cherished childhood dream.

Rinko convinces Makoto to quit the biker gang and attend evening high school. Nine years later, the fully reformed Makoto is a college graduate and an upstanding physical education teacher who enjoys immense popularity among students. Having finally landed full-time status with her own class in her third year, life seems great until a bombshell drops from school principal. Makoto and her colleagues are being tasked with strengthening the school's dance program, a newly-mandated component of physical education. It is Makoto's worst nightmare come true. And God forbid that her students ever discover the truth: that she can't dance a lick.
