Ayuhara Kozue was one of the girls that were called rebels, when she came to her new school, but when she challenges and wins over the schools' volleyball-team, everyone knows that this girl is really extraordinary. Kozue's goal is to become the number one of the world, but it's a long way. Attack No.1 was the first shoujo-sports manga ever created. {DHI}

This manga led the way for numerous other sport stories for girls. This was a direct reflection of the boom in women's athletics after Japan won the gold medal in volleyball in the 1964 Olympics. {002}

As a manga, Urano Chikako's "Attack No. 1" is only significant in that it was the first popular shoujo manga series in the "sports konjou" ("Konjou," BTW, means something like "guts" or "spirit." "Sports Konjou," abbreviated as "supokon," is a standard genre in both shounen and shoujo manga.) boom that followed the Tokyo Olympics in 1964. Urano was a one-hit wonder, whose drawing style was highly orthodox 1960's-style shoujo. If anything, her drawing style was already going out of fashion by the time she came out with "Attack No. 1". Even as an anime, "Attack No.1" was not nearly the hit that "Candy, Candy" (1976), was. {011}
