If there’s one thing I love more than anime in the world, it’s football. The european one. Yes, soccer’s a brilliant sport but many TV shows have not done justice to it. Hopefully, this anime can bring a bit more light and introduce the brilliance of soccer to the Japanese audience… but they’re already into soccer so… yeah, dunno.
Bad animation, bad characters, and bad direction of story… yessir, if I didn’t play soccer, I would never play it based on this first episode here. I’ll give it one more episode only because I love the sport, but don’t expect me to blog this. Manager who? On a more serious note, this series wouldn’t be so bad… had it aired in the 80s, because then it would actually fit in with the other anime series. That being said, it was just boring and bad. Disappointing would be a euphemism.
