Synopsis
Peco and Smile are members of the high school table tennis club. Peco is charismatic and has a passion for the sport, while Smile is introverted. Despite Smile's greater natural talent, he sees the sport as simply a way to pass the time, and often lets less able players such as Peco beat him out of consideration for their feelings. Through multiple tournaments and competitions, both Peco and Smile realize what Ping Pong means to each of them.
