YAGUCHI Yatora has an engaging high school experience, yet feels an emptiness in life. When a painting in the art room captivates him, inspiring him to paint, he joins the ruffian-filled art club. Recommended by his advisor, he sets his sights on the elite Tokyo University of the Arts. The author’s explications of art theory and technique from his own acceptance to the school imparts a sense of reality to the story.
