Kurogane Hiroto is in HighSchool, where he is academically the top of his class but literally the worst in physical activity. Born with a weak body, he has no endurance, speed nor strength and Hiroto wants nothing more than to be a hero. Fate teases him by giving him [[HyperAwareness phenomenal eye sight]], which allows him to see well beyond anyone else in sports, but his body is not able to react to any of it. He learns from his friend Tsubame Shiratori, who wants to recruit him for their school's {{Kendo}} team, about a rumor about a ghost named Tojo Sayuri, who wields a katana and haunts an ally in the city. Half curious, Hiroto goes there only to find that the ghost is real and that [[SpiritAdvisor Tojo Sayuri has been looking for a successor]] to her [[FantasticFightingStyle Sakura sword style]] for 150 years. Sayuri chooses him as the successor after he is able to dodge her attack and forces him to learn the Sakura style. Even with the help of the ancient swordsman ghost, Hiroto has to overcome his poor motor skills in order to be the hero he always wanted to be.

A 2011 {{Kendo}} based [[GamingAndSportsAnimeAndManga sports]] {{Manga}} by IKEZAWA Haruto, it appeared in the ''Weekly Magazine/ShonenJump'' magazine until 2013.

** Averted in Hiroto's early fights. While he was able to win with Sayuri's help and his eyes, he lost some of his first fights alone due to the difference in training and experience between him and his opponents.
