Shunichi Domoto is a talented, sportive 5th grade boy who is used to help sport teams in his school. He enters a Yoyo duel against a bully boy called Benkei to help his friend, Beso, to get back his Yoyo which was stolen by the bully. He beat him, but after that, he meets the exceptionally gifted Yoyoer, Seito Hojoin, who beat him while he ridiculed the Yoyo game. So, Shunichi enters Japan's Yoyo championship to get his revenge from his loss with Seito. Throughout this Championship, he learns new Yoyoing Skills and meets powerful rivals.
This is clearly a children's show and a way to fuel sales for yoyos during the yoyo boom. It shows overdramatic scenes of yoyoing and in general overexaggerations of yoyoing in general. It's similar to Yu-Gi-Oh! in that it was used to sell boost a product and a simple thing was made into something ridiculous. As a yoyoer, I found it very interesting and funny. The storyline has hooks to it that make you want to watch the next episode. Of course, things were very corny and the English dub made it even funnier. I'm sure many Japanese kids went out to buy their own yoyos after watching this, only to leave them in a closet to gather dust and move onto something else. I definitely enjoyed watching this anime!read more
