‘Love All Play’ Plot
Ryou Mizushima wants to play badminton, and for that, he enrolls in middle school and soon joins the badminton club of his school. But little did he know that this club did not have a coach of its own. But that did not stop Ryou from working hard for his dream. Even without any professional help, he practiced hard every day and improved his skills on his own. Believing in himself, he participated in the prefectural tournament. Those who dream of flying high need bigger wings. And his potential was noticed by Hitoshi Ebihara, coach of Yokohama Minato High School Badminton Club. Ryou was approached by Ebihara sensei to join his High School so that he can get a better opportunity to showcase his skills.
This decision was huge for Ryou, so he hesitates, of course. But, his elder sister, Rika Mizushima, encourages him to move forward and grab what belongs to him. Now that Ryou chose to move forward, he finally got a coach who can properly guide him. So far, Ryou learned everything on his own. But, whatever he learned till now is not enough. He still has a lot to learn.
What Happened Till Now? – Episode 3 “Entering School” Recap
After getting the support of his elder sister, Rika, Ryou finally is on his first step at Yokohama Minato High School. Of course, the first day can be intimidating, knowing that you are all alone. But, Ryou finds someone familiar, Koki Matsuda. They both are in the badminton club. Koki being the cool guy, is the center of attention for the girls. And other boys wanting to become the same as him join the badminton club, hoping to get some attention.
But, soon, they realize that badminton is not a piece of cake. Just the training and warmup sessions were enough to make a lot of boys change their minds. Akira Uchida is a total beginner. Even though he was struggling the most, he kept practicing hard. And as soon as he got to hit his first shot, he got the spirit to play even harder.
Meanwhile, Ryou got the chance to play with Kento Yusa, the star player of the team. At first, Ryou was unable to stand against Kento, but soon Kento saw the glow in Ryou’s eyes and chose to give him another shot. Soon he was impressed by Ryou as he managed to at least predict the distracting shots he was hitting. All this time, Ryou could never find the answer to why exactly he wanted to play badminton. But, soon he gets his answer, as the beginner Akira Uchida helps him understand. Even though he isn’t very good at this game, he still plays it because he was having fun.
Sounds simple, but isn’t it why we all play our favorite game? Because it’s fun.
