Hajime Aono used to live for the sound of his violin playing. Ever since he was young, he had admired his world-renowned violinist father, who inspired him to pick up the instrument himself. But following his parents’ bitter divorce, Aono swears to never play again and heads for high school without a direction or a prospect.
During a physical education class, the unathletic Aono gets struck in the face with a ball and ends up in the infirmary. There, he meets the brash Ritsuko Akine who begins to play the violin in the room, believing she is alone. However, following a past incident, there have been rumors claiming that Akine is a bully, which has isolated her from her peers—a fact Aono was unaware of.
Akine dreams of enrolling in a school with an orchestra, but her amateurish playing and lack of musical knowledge grates on Aono immensely. Seeing this as a perfect opportunity for the two to become friends, their teacher suggests that Aono teaches Akine how to play the violin, something Aono is vehemently against. However, as the pair spends more time together, they soon learn to understand and help each other—and Aono may finally discover the lost passion and melody in his life.

Daigo, the son of renowned baseball player Gorou Shigeno, believes he has to live up to his father’s name by becoming an all-star player himself. With great dreams, as soon as he reaches fourth-grade, he promptly joins the same little league baseball team his dad played on, the Mifune Dolphins. However, things don’t go as planned. After only the first couple of practices, Daigo’s lack of talent and inherent baseball sense shows, and his confidence is crushed. Unable to bear the pressure of living up to his father, a baseball prodigy, he quits the team in less than a year.
Two years later, now in sixth-grade, a transfer student joins Daigo’s class. This student turns out to be Hikaru, the son of Gorou’s lifelong friend and fellow baseball star, Toshiya Satou. One day, Daigo’s mother receives a call from the Dolphins requesting players for a game, so she forces Daigo to attend. To Daigo’s surprise, he finds Hikaru there. Even more shocking is that despite his father’s occupation, Hikaru has never played baseball before!
Unlike Daigo, though, Hikaru immediately picks up the game demonstrating excellent performance. Needless to say, Daigo and Hikaru are polar opposites of each other. But this friction will inevitably thrust both of these inexperienced children into the world their fathers cherish—the world of baseball.
