Description: Idaten Jump

Originally a comic created by Toshihiro Fujiwara and serialized in Comic BomBom, Idaten Jump is about the journey of a young MTB rider named Sho Yamato and his two friends, Kakeru Sakamaki and Makoto Shido, through the strange-yet-very-similar-to-our's world known as the X-Zone; ironically the same name as where Sho spent many days with his father that had passed away AS WELL AS the place where their cookey adventure begins.

Now, in order for Sho, Kakeru, and Makoto to return home, Sho must race in many Idaten Battles (ironically named, seeing as there really isn't any fighting during the races unless you count bad-mouthing) and win to collect 10 emblems (which are the pentagon-shaped things on the front of the riders' bikes) from their opposing teams. The Idaten Battles take place on various courses, such as ghost towns, volcanos, ancient ruins, deserts, and snow-topped mountains. Will the trio make it home? Or will they be stuck in the X-Zone forever?
