The plot synopsis of the show is simple. Shotaro Aragaki, a lifelong disciple of the Gymnastics, had to retire, due to the wishes of his coach Noriyuki Amasuka and his daughter Rei. But then something happens which changes the life of the Aragaki Family forever.
In the third episode of the series, Tetsuo Minamino challenges Aragaki, saying that if he loses Aragaki would have to retire for good. Arakgaki accepts the challenge only to lose the match one month and a half later. Amasuka and Leonardo beg Minamino to let Aragaki perform, to which he says that he will meet him in the next competition.
The Gymnastics Samurai Discussion
It will be interesting to see how Aragaki rises up after the humiliating defeat he had just endured. Will he be able to back up his words, or would he just prove that his body is old and tired to compete in gymnastics. Another question that comes in our mind is what role does his daughter Rei has to play in his story. Since the show is not based on any manga, we just have to wait for the episodes to be telecast.
