I love manga about ice skating or ballet so I am enjoying this~ So far there isn’t a lot of drama in the story (although there first s a little), it’s mostly just the day to day life of young skaters growing up. Since the first three chapters are missing I wanted to put a summary here:
At the 2014 Winter Olympics the much anticipated Kitahara Yuki is beginning her routine watched over by the two men, Mu-chan and Daiya. Daiya says how she was the only way ne of their group to come this far. Yuki is thinking able ut the “moment” in a jump when everything around you disappears.
The story now goes back to when Yuki was in 5th grade. It’s her first day at a new skating school and everyone is shocked by how good she is. The hockey player Daiya (same aged) is staring at Yuki because she’s so beautiful and ends up falling down and getting yelled at. Yuki has moved to Tokyo with her mom to get better figure skating training because she is very talented. She talks with her dad on the phone every night and Yuki feels bad that her parents make sacrifices for her, but her mother reassures her that yuki’s happiness is her happiness and Yuki has a very loving relationship with her family.
At the first day of school Yuki is nervous but makes friends right away. Daiya is in her class (and he obviously has a crush on her). Yuki is confused about how boys are so rough and energetic. At skate school, three kids are chosen for a training camp(Mu-chan, Nana-chan, and Yuki). A girl who had been friends with Yuki on the first day doesn’t get chosen and blames Yuki. Daiya strongely tells Yuki it isn’t her fault but Mu-chan says in 5 years time most of the kids wont be skating anyways. Yuki feels kind of bad…
In a bad mood already, Yuki trips in the locker room and runs away embarrassed when some other girls laugh. The snobby Nana-chan who immediately saw Yuki as a rival looks on ( maybe feeling bad?). Yuki goes home to eat dinner alone and feels reading a note left by her mom. She leaves a note for her mom saying she’s fustrated and is going to try her best. Yuki’s mom thinks Yuki is amazing ^_^.
At school Yuki gets a good test score (Daiya is embarassed when Yuki hears about his bad score) and talks about a girl’s romance novel with her friend. Yuki doesn’t really understand romance or boys. The kids get to talking about what they do after school andeveryone thinks its cool that Daiya plays hockey. For some reason Yuki doesn’t want to share about figure skating and Daiya covers it used for her.
On the way the skating school Yuki is worrying about the friend who blamed her yesterday and gets kind of lost at the station. She happens to meet up with Mu-chan (who Yuki finds kind of scary) and he helps her get to the rink. She’s shocked to find out he’s the same age since he’s so grown up seeming. He talks about how he wants to “make a roar” at the fall competition.
At the rink Yuki is ignored by her friend but doesn’t feel to bad because she is thinking about what Mu-chan said. She realizes its no time to be feeling down and decides to “make a roar” herself. Later, she is with Mu-chan who is watching Daiya. He says Daiya might be a good skater except he has no artistic sense. Yuki doesn’t know what he means and he explains it as how you might laugh or cry when you listen to music, those kinds of feelings. He tells Yuki a song he likes is Mahler’s Adagietto. Yuki listens to the song at home and cries, wondering why Mu-chan likes such a sad song.
Yuki’s mom asks her what kind of song she wants to use for the competition and Yuki says she wants a song that would match a cute outfit. Yuki is still confused by the sad song Mu-chan likes. At the rink that day it’s really crowded so Yuki chats with Mu-chan. He says bright songs go over better with judges but he doesn’t want to be seen as a child, he says he wants to grow up fast. Yuki says, kind of amazed, that she’s never even thought that. In the rink they notice Daiya trying to make some jumps. He succeeds even though he’s never tried it before and tries some harder jumps. Mu-chan stops him before he hurts himself and when Daiya sees Yuki was watching he runs away embarassed.
The next day the choreographer, Shinoda sensei comes to starr making Yuki’s routine. Shinoda-sensei is famous and some of the other girls are jealous. But Nana-chan kind of tells them off saying it doesn’t matter how good the choreographer, if you can’t perform the routine. Afterwards, Daiya unexpectedly invites Yuki and Mu-chan to his house for dinner. His mom is a great cook at his father looks scary (but he’s actually a softy). His father sells tuna at Tsukiji fish market so they eat some delicious seafood for dinner. Yuki asks Daiya why he was trying jumps and he is kind of embarrassed. He thought figure skating was easy but its hard. However, both Yuki and Mu-chan complement him and he’s happy. Yuki tells Daiya it’s cool how he’s been playing hockey for 4 years (he is very happy) but he tells her how it’s tough to actually get chosen for a team. Age 15 is around the time when its decided either you can join a team or you quit. Yuki thinks seriously about this.
Mu-chan has tutoring so he goes home and Yuki’s mom comes to pick her up. Yuki and her mom talk about how the kids in Daiya’s family have jewel based names. His older sister is Maju (pearl), his little sister is Ruri (lapis lazuli), and he’s Daiya (diamond). Yuki’s mom says his parents must be very romantic (Daiya’s dad looks very manly ^_^) Yuki tells her mom how she’s realized that in Tokyo there are a lot of kids serious about going to the Olympics. She sYs how she wants to be number 1 in the ice skating which she loves so much.
Thanks for the summery!!
