Due to this passion for ballet, Murao becomes a butt of jokes in middle school. But, he never gives up on his dream to become the best Danseur. His father is also against this, as he did not consider ballet as manly enough. While Murao didn’t think much about his father’s objections initially, his heart got lumped with strange regret when his father passed away due to a heart attack. Therefore, Murao then decides to leave Ballet once for all and pursue to learn Jeet Kune Do, a martial art influenced by Bruce Lee.
One day while showing off Jeet Kune Do to his friends, Junpei merges ballet and martial arts, it resulted in an astonishing kick that pulls Miyako Godai’s attention. She confronts Junpei and pulls him to her older sister’s ballet class, where she wants him to compete.
