The sound the bowstring makes when an arrow is fired.

For an archer, hearing the beautiful sound of reverberations is joyful, and the beauty of their sound is said to seize the heart and not let go.

It is truly a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity as even if the same person uses the exact same bow and arrow, there is no guarantee that they can make the sound again. Each shot is a single meeting and a single farewell.

For Minato Narumiya, all tsurune are meetings.

These fresh, first-year high school students treading onto the unending path of archery are like the Battleship Wakaba setting out to sea for the first time. Through archery, these boys will, for the first time, gain irreplaceable experience and friends.

This shining youth archery animation, akin to the sunlight peeking through the trees, starts now!
