Welcome to the Ballroom
Volume 1


With no particular dreams or plans for the future, third-year middle schooler Tatara Fujita yearns to find something that he can pursue wholeheartedly. Initially often bullied and extorted for his lack of confidence, Tatara's life changes when he is saved from delinquents by a man named Kaname Sengoku. His savior, a motorcycle-riding dance instructor, proceeds to drag Tatara to Ogasawara Dance Studio, mistakenly believing that the boy was looking at the studio's flyer.

Tatara is then partnered with his schoolmate and skilled dancer Shizuku Hanaoka when he agrees to a trial lesson. The next day after being bullied and only to be saved yet again, he asks the studio to teach him dancing in hopes of changing his image. Now entering a bright and fast-paced new world, Tatara dedicates his time to dancing as he sweeps over the dance hall.

Ballroom e Youkoso or Welcome to the Ballroom is the definition of sports/slice of life manga done right.
Story, Art, Characters, Development, Pacing and simply Dancing is perfect in this manga. You'll find an awesome story with unlimited development and improving potential. Tomo Takeuchi is a genius, her drawings, her story and the amount of emotion she's able to transmit is unmeasurable.

Usually this type of manga is pretty straight forward, with all the power of friendship and weird "Poweups", here everything is set perfectly and it's not always happy, our protagonist has a loooot of troubles and things to improve. Throughout the story, he changes drastically ...

I didn't know I'd love this manga that much. This manga is a top-tier sports manga. The theme of Ballroom Dancing and how it is used in the development of the characters and the story are really well-crafted.

The art is exceptional! I took so many screenshots of so many panels. I can see the author and I can see how much he studied the body movements. It is really fascinating. It pains me that this is affecting his health, but health comes first.

I am really glad I had the chance to read it. So dazzling.

Get well soon, sensei. Can't wait to read the ...

The story flow at beginning seems a little at rush, but then it seattle, it's no predictable at all, you might think in some events that Tatara (protagonist) would be top notch at have his dreams fulfilled, but no. Even Tatara doesn't know what he want, but the path he choice ( competitive ...
