About Ahiru no Sora
MAL describes the synopsis as:
“He’s short, weak, and has just transferred to a new school. Kurumatani Sora is the main character in this story who loves basketball. He has been shooting hoops ever since he was little and has been trying to grow tall. Sora wishes to become just like his mother, who “used” to be a basketball player. To fulfill his mother’s wishes Sora enters Kuzuryuu High School to become a member of the basketball club.
However, Sora is disappointed to find out that the boy’s basketball team is nothing but a retreat for punks who have no interest in the sport. He also learns that Chiaki and Momoharu Hanazono whom he becomes acquainted with have also lost their motivation to play.
