Our Greatest Comeback: Thanks to your beautiful light

"Amidst obstacles,
Your light shines brightly.
Never give up."

Takashi always misses. He understood it, even though it hurt, but that didn't stop him when he decided to travel from Tsuno to Takachiho during the Obon Festival to represent his school in the Intercollegiate Soccer Tournament. Paradoxically, it was through his failures there that he found hope. An unexpected ball hitting Nao, a girl suffering from deep shyness in that picturesque town, introduced him to a companion who understood his struggles and was determined to help him improve his game.

This is the story of a certain summer when feelings blossomed, and young love grew amidst an unexpected visit and the discoveries of many secrets. A journey full of compassion, hope, and a nurtured relationship of special moments between young and fearful hearts.
