Run on your new legs / Wataru Midori ; translation: Caleb Cook ; lettering: Abagail Blackman.

Midori, Wataru, (author,, artist.). Cook, Caleb D., (translator.).


V.1. Shouta Kikuzato's hopes of starting on his school's prestigious soccer team are derailed when a terrible incident costs him his leg. Now in his first year of high school (again), Kikuzato has resigned himself to never reaching his athletic dreams. But when Chidori, a passing prosthetist, notices Kikuzato's artificial limb -- and speed -- as he races through the train station, the specialist proposes a partnership: Chidori will build Kikuzato a brand-new leg designed solely for speed. All Kikuzato has to do is run.
V.2. The race in Shibuya has given Kikuzato a taste of what running and competing on a blade could be, but it will take more than a new leg for him to truly be a contender the next time he races. Kikuzato needs to learn how to run, and Usami is only too happy to give him some pointers after school at track and field club. Kikuzato thought his days of training with a team were behind him, but with the club members' help, the path to becoming a runner opens before him -- though not without a few hurdles along the way.
V.3. Kikuzato is sprinting toward his new goal of becoming a more powerful runner, but each stride takes him further from his soccer days -- and the friends who once played alongside him. Kikuzato's wasn't the only life affected by his accident, and ever since that day, Takekawa has watched his best friend on and off the field steadily slip away. Can these former teammates repair the rift between them, even as world events throw all their high school hopes and dreams into disarray?
V.4. When the worsening pandemic forces schools to close temporarily, Kikuzato and the other members of the track and field club must find creative ways to keep up their training. The anticipation of his new custom running prosthesis is more than enough to motivate Kikuzato, but his excitement is undercut by the presence of his father, now working from home. Will being in close quarters bring father and son together or drive them even further apart?
V.5. As schools reopen and clubs reconvene after COVID-19 closures, Kikuzato is eager to try out his new leg. But even with the improved fit, his worry about falling like he did in his first public race plagues his training for the next. Running is as much a mental game as it is a physical one, and between his fear and his fight with Take, Kikuzato isn't seeing the improvement he hoped his new leg would bring. If he means to succeed, Kikuzato must answer one question for himself: "Why am I running anyway?"
