Shinji and Masaru are friends. They don't know what to do with their life and are spending their time harrassing their schoolmates. Until the day Masaru is knocked down by one of his victims's muscular friends. Then, he and Shinji, decide to learn boxing and enter the local sportsclub.

Highly recommended.
