  1. Summary
  2. Information


Shikokuchuo City, Ehime, is the largest producer of paper in Japan and known as “Paper Town”. Shikokuchuo High School teacher Mr. Ikezawa is temporarily appointed as the manager of the school’s calligraphy (Japanese: shodo) club, to which Satoko and her friends belong.
Mr. Ikezawa comes up with an idea to do “performance calligraphy,” in which kanji (Chinese characters) are drawn with big brushes on huge sheets of paper to the rhythm of accompanying music.
Satoko and her teammates organize the “Shodo Performance Koshien,” an inter-high school competition, in the shopping district of the city, revitalizing it in the process.
