Whistle!, Vol. 5 (Paperback)

Everybody has a dream, and for Shô Kazamatsuri, that dream is simple: he wants to be the best soccer player he can possibly be. He's the spirited leader of the Josui Junior High team and everyone looks up to him. In turn, he tries to keep the team together at any cost!

Everybody has a dream, and for junior high school student Shô Kazamatsuri, that dream is simple: he wants to get off the bench and play soccer. An inspiration to everyone he meets,the indefatigable spark plug won't quit until he becomes the best soccer player he can be!

But soccer is a team sport and that means Shô must also work extra hard at being the best teammate he can be. No matter how good he gets, he still needs the support of 10 other players to score a single goal.

One player, however, has vowed to single-handedly crush the upstarts at Josui Junior High. His name is Ryoichi Tenjo and he is easily the best soccer player Shô has ever seen. Nobody has been able to stop Ryoichi in the past. Now, it's up to Team Josui to teach the arrogant hothead a lesson in humility.
