It’s tournament arc! After a hard training day’s work, the Ionodai High Skate-Leading Club begins their journey to the nationals—can they skate all the way to sweet victory?

Red and gold—The Ionodai High Skate-Leading Club.

The Grand Prix series is here! After a tumultuous journey full of clashing egos, shocking exits, and—thankfully—character growth, the Ionodai High Skate-Leading Club enters the highly-anticipated tournament arc. Here's a road map to the nationals:

In the Skate-Leading Grand Prix series, 16 schools vie for a spot in the nationals: Ten of those qualified via the preliminaries while the six came from last year’s finals. Each school will then compete in three lottery-based competitions around the country, with the six top-scoring schools advancing to the Grand Prix finals and are seeded next year.

After coming in at fourth place last year—and with the exciting addition of Maeshima—can the Ionodai skaters skate all the way to sweet victory this year?
