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 just like his mother, who "used" to be a basketball player. What has happened to her and what Sora is going to do at the new school is all up to you to find out!

Preliminary (44/? eps)
I read it more than 30 times, purchased 40 volumes, and the whole online edition. From the perspective of a fan who has read thousands of Japanese mangas, Hinata Takeshi is one of the best Japanese manga artists, and AHIRU NO SORA is undoubtedly the best basketball manga after SLAM DUNK.

This shows us that, clearly, the result isn't the important part of the manga. It's the ...

Preliminary (220/? eps)
This review section is infested with 9s and 10s making you actually want to pick this up. I recommend not doing that because this is more than just a little dreadful.

Story: (3/10)
The story gets good from time to time. Especially when our main character has some growth. But that isn't nearly enough to make up for the bs it pulls.
This manga like many others wants to focus on 'realism' rather than entertainment. You can see how I put realism in quotations there. It's because the only time the author decides to pursue realism is when he should be hyping stuff up. Every interaction at the ...
