Los Super Campeones



Synopsis

Captain Tsubasa is the passionate story of an elementary school student whose thoughts and dreams revolve almost entirely around the love of soccer. 11-year-old Tsubasa Oozora started playing football at a very young age, and while it was mostly just a recreational sport for his friends, for him, it developed into something of an obsession.

In order to pursue his dream to the best of his elementary school abilities, Tsubasa moves with his mother to Nankatsu city, which is well-known for its excellent elementary school soccer teams. But although he was easily the best in his old town, Nankatsu has a lot more competition, and he will need all of his skill and talent in order to stand out from this new crowd.

He encounters not only rivals, but also new friends like the pretty girl Sanae Nakazawa and the talented goalkeeper, Genzo Wakabayashi, who shares the same passion as Tsubasa, and will prove to be a treasured friend in helping him push towards his dreams. Representing Japan in the FIFA World Cup is Tsubasa’s ultimate dream, but it will take a lot more than talent to reach it.

I watched this series as a kid under a different name called Los Super Campeones. Before i even knew that it was called anime. Anyways I'm glad to see that this series got a reboot and can't wait to see Tubasa (Oliver) make those goals!!

It's licensed by Viz Media and it's up to them if they will allow CR to stream it. If not it'll end up on Hulu.

It's a bit odd that TV Tokyo gave the rights to Viz Media first rather than CR.

So far, it's not anywhere. I would have to think that there's still some complications over the license. In particular, the theme songs are from artists belonging to Johnny's Entertainment, and unlike everybody else, they are notoriously known for playing hardball with the music rights for international usage, so if worst comes to worst, the show will be broadcasted without the theme songs.

Very disappointed in CrunchyRoll for not getting Tsubasa. It's every child's anime growing up in South America in Asia. Damn.

@AIMannai_s, Ask Viz Media why they’re aren’t streaming it, not CR.
