Author: Takehiko Inoue

Eisner-award nominated creator Takehiko Inoue creates a dramatic tale of triumph over adversity. This is the story of three young men whose lives are profoundly changed by their involvement with wheelchair basketball.

Critically acclaimed, award-winning manga artist Takehiko Inoue doesn't pull any punches in this stunning portrayal of people struggling with serious life issues. Masterfully combining rich character development with beautifully detailed line art, Inoue, the creator of the mega-hit masterpieces Slam Dunk and Vagabond, lifts the manga medium to a completely new level of storytelling.

Hisanobu Takahashi thought the world was his for the taking. Natural athletic ability, effortless academic prowess and popularity with the girls gave him a sense of entitlement that knew no bounds. But a devastating traffic accident robs Hisanobu of everything. In constant pain, Hisanobu is completely overwhelmed by the reality of his paraplegia and his excruciating physical rehabilitation.
