Skate Leading Stars Synopsis
Skater Kensei Maeshima gave up his career when he found himself unable to defeat his rival Reo Shinozaki. Some years later, Maeshima, now a high school student, uses your physical talents to help other clubs in their activities, asking for nothing in return. One day, he reads a lecture in the newspaper in which Shinozaki announced that he would quit skating only to start competing in group skating.
At that time, a boy named Hayato Sasugai and who is aware of Maeshima’s old career as a skater, now invites him to the world of team skating.
