The Cast and the Plot
The protagonists of the series are Fujiwara Takeru and Sakurai Nana. They enter Honan high school. However, they aren’t interested in studies – they want to practice a unique sport called stride. Stride is the non-typical type of sport – looks like parkour, but demands strong skills and concentration. It’s sort of a hi-tech levelled parkour. There’s also a special aspect that makes this sport one of a kind – races between the players for the final victory. Victory is one of the main targets of stride.
Yagami Rika joins the stride team. He turns out to be a talented member. Another thing that makes Honan’s school team unique is the presence of a girl. Her name’s Nana Sakurai – she always ready to compete and is willing to win. Though the newcomers are quite strong they have to get accustomed to the new rules and new relationships.
