    A good series that suffers from a weak main character.
    This series follows the exploits of the Aizawa brothers. Suguru Aizawa, the older brother, is a soccer prodigy in all aspects of the word, both feared and respected by players worldwide. Kakeru Aizawa, the younger brother, was also somewhat of a prodigy who was able to fully support his older brother's abilities to allow Suguru to play his type of soccer unrestrained. Due to some events before the ...

    An Anime with so much Missed Potential
    I am usually a big fan of sports anime as they often instill an atmosphere of team work and hard effort that can be inspiring. Major and Kuroko's Basketball are fine examples of this. When I saw the preview of this anime, it looked as promising as those others mentioned. Unfortunately that wasn't the case. The storyline had really good potential but ended up lacking the intensity and vision it ...

    Needs a Better Ending
    This was a really good anime. I liked the brother's spirit being featured and the women's team that does get spotlighted throughout the anime. The one thing holding this anime back is the ending. The series at the end felt rushed and there were still a lot of mysteries that needed to be concluded. Would love to see a second season of this and what they could do with it.

    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 ...

    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 ...

    Not Bad but Not Good Neither
    Episodes Watched / Episodios Vistos
    37/37

    English
    I start watching this anime about 1 month after its premiere; the beginning looks awesome, however, after the first episodes it become really slow and does not show any real development (main char and story). Not sure about the manga but the anime it kind of disappoint me. I was expecting something like EyeShield 21 or Captain Tsuba, but is ...

    Eyeshield 21 meets soccer.
    So far its like an eyeshield21 meets soccer, you have lively characters an its all centered around a sport. Taking a differant turn from football is a good approach as Im really enjoying it right now. So if you loved Eyeshield 21 you are sure to like this alot.

    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 ...

    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, ...
