[ Story ]

Coming-of-age drama about pro-wrestling that humorously portrays an average guy working at a mail order company as he deals with love and growing up. Directed by the up-and-coming Horie Takahiro, who also helmed Hana Kujira Chichi.
Hoshino (Mine Goichi) works as an assistant director at a mail order company and is forced to join the company's club for pro-wrestling enthusiasts. Then, the president comes up with the brilliant idea of launching a new program that fuses pro-wrestling with product pitches. Wrestling takes over Hoshino's humdrum days, and his girlfriend Aoi (Shibuya Asami) doesn't know what to make of him.
