Synopsis of Skate Leading Stars

Skater Kensei Maeshima abandoned his career when he was unable to defeat rival Reo Shinozaki. A few years later, Maeshima, now a high school student, uses your physical talent to help other clubs in their activities, without asking for anything in return. One day, he reads a lecture in the newspaper in which Shinozaki announced that he would quit skating only to start competing in group skating.

At the time, a boy named Hayato Sasugai, who is aware of Maeshima's old career as a skater, now invites him into the world of team skating.
