Keijo!!!!!!!! (競女!!!!!!!!, ケイジョ, けいじょ, subtitled "HiP WHiP GiRL") is a Japanese sports manga series written and drawn by Daichi Sorayomi. The story involves Nozomi Kaminashi, a confident, skilled gymnast but comes from a very poor family, who decides to enter the world of "Keijo." A water sport where girls stand on a small floating platform called "Land," and fight against one another. However, they are forbidden to use their limbs except their chests and butt. Along with her friend, Sayaka Miyata, a former Judo star who switches over Keijo. They are trying to become great Keijo players. Excluding Nozomi and Sayaka, main characters are periodically swapped based on the story arcs.
Kaminashi Nozomi (17) is an exceptional gymnast. So much so that colleges with some of the best gymnastic programs are trying to recruit her. Unfortunately for them, she has other plans. Due to her family being extremely poor, money is everything to her. That's why she wants to step into the world of "Keijo." "Keijo" is a type of gambling sport where girls stand on a small floating platform and compete against one another. The aim is to push the other contestant off of the platform into the water, but they are only allowed to use their butt or breasts to push the others off. Will Nozomi be able to compete in the intense world of "Keijo" and bring wealth and fortune for her family?
