During the heyday of the 2D fighting game boom in 1991, sixth-grader Haruo spends practically his entire day at an arcade in the seedy part of town, oblivious to the world around him.

Akira completely outmatches Haruo in one Street Fighter II round after another, and their relationship develops from this unlikely encounter.
