Storyline

The story of Kano Kyosuke, a teenage high school student who at the beginning of the series, has just transferred into Jyoyo Orange High School. Kyosuke's older brother is the illustrious and extremely famous A.C. Milan soccer player, Kano Seisuke, who had first taught him how to play and love the game of soccer and whom he has greatly admired since childhood. After Seisuke left Japan to sign with Italian powerhouse A.C. Milan, people started comparing Kyosuke with his brother and criticizing him due to his different playing style. Living in his brother's shadow, Kyosuke's love for the game slowly started to evaporate and lessen, and he eventually lost most of his passion for it. After his transfer to Jyoyo and a fated meeting with Tsujiwaki Miki, an enthusiastic girl with a lot of passion for soccer and who soon reinvigorates his love for the game with her determination to excel, Kyosuke's deep love and passion for soccer returns to its fullest. He soon joins the Jyoyo men's soccer ... Written by nandamovies

A sports anime worth a watch
10 October 2013 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Well this show has a few flaws. Basically in a few matches they even break some rules, but who gives a $#!+.

This show has a lot of spirit & frankly that's what i want in a sports anime (especially one based football). The character development is good, the music is brilliant especially the "2nd stage" song which is played during miracles or desperate attempts which happens during matches.

But the original storyline is quite believable and unlike all other shows where the lead character's team always win, this anime is an exception. I have seen this show too many times and I still didn't get bored of it.

I hope you enjoy this anime as much as I do. Have fun
