Description
When 10-year-old Kaneda Shota was involved in a car accident that claimed the life of his father, it changed the course of his life forever. Even though his mother got a job and tried her best to support her son, money was always tight. Now, unable to afford college, Shota works a part-time job, in addition to his full-time job at his uncle's factory. He dreams of one day saving enough money to go to college. He lives alone, on the second floor of one of his uncle's warehouses, and doesn't have any friends. Everywhere he goes, he rides a bicycle, with headphones to block out the flashback-inducing sounds of the cars.

His quiet way of life is about to be interrupted. Due to pressures from the economy, Shota's job at his uncle's factory is going to be cut to half-time/half-pay for a while. In addition, Shota's uncle has agreed to lend the first floor of Shota's warehouse to a college club. This club is building a solar car to enter in a race, and they're hoping to get Shota to lend them his mechanical expertise. Will Yazaki Junko and the other club members be able to handle Shota's anger and bitterness, and draw him out of his self-imposed isolation?

Good, but disappointing

It Good while it lasted, but sadly it ended before it even started... leaving relationships unresolved and readers disappointed. Maybe Ohtagaki-sensei's next series will last longer.

It starts pretty interesting - mc is silent and hard-working fellow (now that's a rarity in manga), then some care-free students come into his life, something he both hates and dreams to become. I liked the main character - introverted and bitter guy, but the moment girl comes into his life he's changed. Well us boys are hardwared that way, can't blame the author. Too bad there's just 1 girl in the team.
Manga feels more like seinen than shonen with all that dark past and (somewhat) realistic character interactions (a good thing), not a lot of humour there.
As for "sports" part it just started so can't say much but, well, solar car racing is boring, people. All you see is the same car on the same road and pilot's face. Feels like pages are wasted on it. But I thought american football is boring and still read Eyeshield21 for characters so let's not be hasty.
Art is good.
