Tatara Fujita is a shy middle schooler who has no particular plan for the future. He has gotten through life by avoiding any kind of confrontation and blending in with the crowd. But blending in isn't enough to get out of trouble, as some bullies harass him for money. Luckily, he is saved by a man named Kaname Sengoku. Kaname invites Tatara to his dance studio. Although he would normally never set foot in such a place, Tatara is captivated by Sengoku's commanding presence. Granted an opportunity to dance with fellow classmate Shizuku Hanaoka—who often practices at the studio—Tatara realizes there's something about the idea of being put in the limelight and dancing where people will see him that keeps him coming back. With an earnest, passionate drive to improve, Tatara begins his journey into the world of competitive dance.

Taking it to the necks level


I’ll admit that I didn’t know competitive Ballroom Dancing was a thing prior to this. But I’m not surprised either. That shit takes skill.


Why are people not rating this higher? Don’t let “ballroom dance” turn you away. It is a must watch.


Questionable character designs and awkward directing full of freeze frames feel disorienting. Better off just reading the manga instead.


JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Giraffedust Crusaders


If you can get past the giraffe people, it’s an exciting sports anime. Dance is rough!


An Inspiring Series , That makes u fall in love with the world of DANCE . With a very fitting OST that is nothing but FLAMES .Cheers ^-^
