In basketball, a buzzer beater is a shot taken just before the game clock of a period expires, when the buzzer sounds. The term is normally reserved for baskets that win or tie the game, but also refers to shots that beat an end of quarter or halftime buzzer (source: Wikipedia). The shot even counts when the ball hits and falls through the basket after the buzzer sounds.

This sporty series deals with this deciding shot. Naoki Kamiya is 24 years old and earns his money as a professional basketball player. He plays for the JC Arcs within the PBA (Pro Basketball Association = the japanese NBA). His girlfriend Natsuki Nanaumi, who is a cheerleader and co-worker at PBA at the same time, supports him. By chance he gets to know violinist Riko Shirakawa. She again meats Naoki's manager, Tomoya Kawasaki, and starts dating him.
Naoki proposes to Natsuki on condition that he wins the next game. But he looses and from now on even earns fewer money than before. Depressed by his bad skills withouth even a single fan he meets Riko, who is also experiencing rejections with her being a violinist. They encourage each other and Riko states to be Naokis first fan. Natsuki on the other side notices that Naokis life style is not quite her thing. When a new player joins the basketball team, there are some crucial changes for all of them.
