This was the last of the TMS sports-themed anime, ending a line that began with Star of the Giants. Tos-shinta Tomoe grows up by the rough seas of Sotobo in Chiba Prefecture. He goes to high school where he decides to follow in the footsteps of his divorced mother, Teruko, a former judo champion. As with every other sports story, our hero is trained by a tough but kind coach who only wants the best for him, and he eventually faces up to an opponent who has sworn revenge on the previous generation-in this case, a male judoist defeated by Tomoe's mother in her fighting days. The series was taken off the air due to low ratings before the more touching later episodes of Hiroshi Kaizuka's manga could be adapted. Compare to Yawara.
