Long-sleeve illustration for the standard edition:






"You'll never beat me." Kensei Maeshima quit figure skating after the words from his rival Reo Shinozaki. A few years later, when Maeshima becomes a high school student, he makes use of his motor nerves to spent his days as a helper in various club activities without devoting himself to anything. One day, he watches a press conference in which his rival Shinozaki switches from a single skater to the skate-leading, an original figure skate team competition. Then, a boy named Hayato Sasugai appears in front of him. He also seems to know that Maeshima had previously performed as a single skater, and invites him to the world of the skate-leading, saying "I need you."
