  • My favorite Sports Anime hands down.
    Knight in the Area is really well done. This is the first sports anime I have ever seen and I instantly fell in love with it. The show has gotten me to branch out to other sports anime's. The character development is strong at first and seems to slowly diminish as the show progresses but I still loved the characters and the way they dealt with their struggles. The show always had me on the edge of ...

    The Best Anime To Watch
    This is a fun anime. It teach a lot about soccer, and friendship. It is also a emotional anime. This is one of the best anime I have watched. But it stop on Ep 37. I wish it would go on, because I bet it would show much more about soccer and friendship. This anime would totally catch your heart. I RECOMMAND YOU TO WATCH IT!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • A great series that is held back by it’s ending.
    This series is very enjoyable. Mostly realistic gameplay is showcased throughout the show. The inclusion of the woman's soccer team is nice. Light romance is hinted throughout.

    The problem with this series is there are so many things left unfinished. The series feels so incomplete after the final credits roll. The entire time watching the final 2 episodes I was confused with how they would ...

  • 4.8 out of 5 for Me!
    This was an Awesome anime, there were some boring episodes, but the twists and turns it takes along the way are fun and different. I highly recommend this anime to anyone who loves soccer and sports anime. I hope there are more episodes but I don't know!

    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, ...
