Maya, a girl with a natural talent for ice skating, is noticed by a scout who want to pair her up with Shun, a famous skater, but Shun only wants to skate single.

This is another title aimed squarely at girls, in both subject and characters. More open minded and/or adventurous boys may enjoy it though.
