  • Psychological vs Physical Struggle? Football anime? Not worth it
    OK, so they basically killed off the best character early on which I am not really fine with.

    Also, the brother of the character who dies has a horrible personality and the story is just not that great.

    I wish the brother (main character) did things for natural reasons and alone.
    It took so many characters to push this main character to achieve his goal and they focused more on ...

    Fun, but not without a few flaws
    Kakeru, Kakeru, Kakeru!

    I did enjoy this anime, but oh my goodess - how is it that all of the other characters were practically obsessed with Kakeru? It gets ridiculous at a couple points.

    I wanted some more of the ladies team; how did they finally address the issues with Mai and the rest of the group? What was with that photographer that was taking the pictures of Seven?

    I'm a total ...

    Amazing series but it needs a second season
    I thought this was a great anime, I really enjoyed it. Usually when I take a break from action/adventure animes I run over to sports or a slice of life type animes. When I came across this anime I was like "why not, I have nothing better to do". I was actually thinking it was going to be a typical sports anime that has an attention grabber then the deal breakers would start rolling in. What I ...

    This could of been so much more ! One spoiler to take not of.
    I am a very devoted football fan so when I saw this anime I had to give it ago, my exceptions weren't very high as I've never witness a real remember able sport anime. I started watching this with the hope that this could change. All I can say is the 1st couple of episodes had me going some serious stories were going off in my mind. The relationship between the two brothers could of gone any ...

    Animation and action sequences are far less than great
    Pros:
    - Some interesting and entertaining moments

    Cons:
    - Poor art and animation. Art becomes somewhat better near the end.
    - Poorly implemented realistic approach or poorly implemented comedic approach. Hard to tell which it is.
    - Everyone is extremely focused on the main character to the point of ridiculousness
    - The narration/commentators are seemingly all soccer pros
    - Main ...

    excellent football anime
    I didn't expect to like that anime.

    I m a big fan of Captain Tsubasa. I watched it during my childhood. There is still no comparison. Tsubasa is the best.

    Now that's said, This anime is pretty good. I really enjoyed it. The character development is great. The art is great. The story is good. The brother's spirit, team spirit, girl jealousy is pretty well putting together.

    Unfortunately, ...

    Fantastic Series, A lot of fun
    I didn't think I was going to like this series. I am not a football fan and normally don't like sports anime. I was surprised to find out that I actually loved this series! The character development is great. There are sometimes that the soccer explanations are a little too detailed and of course it's not explaining soccer how it is played in real life. Regardless, I think it is this attention to ...

  • This series.. Very interesting..
    Although I haven't completed the entire series yet, I must say that this anime was very touching from the start. The whole relationship with the brothers and how unfortunate events take place... Well it resembles reality for some people. I'm enjoying watching this anime and I think people who enjoy reality inside anime should really consider watching. The other good thing is that it's actually ...

    Best football anime after Captain Tsubasa
    I'm known to be huge Captain Tsubasa fan. In fact Captain Tsubasa is the reason why I started liking football and begun playing till I entered college. After Captain Tsubasa I've not seen any good football anime till I discovered Area no Kishi.
    The story, the art, the characters all are so good. I liked how the author dedicated a chunk of anime\manga to focus on Nadeshiko Japan. I just hated how ...
