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

Truly fascinating.
15 July 2013 | by vicvaid95See all my reviews

I really loved every bit of the series. Extremely well directed and the story is quite motivating for anyone who loves the sport! However I feel that maybe a bit more could have been added towards the end or maybe they should have extended the series to show his future triumphs or more of his wacky comments and abilities. Ten years since its completion and it still brings tears to my eyes during climaxes and touching moments. The detailing and artwork were not as great as some well known works today. However each scene was beautifully depicted. I was stuck to my seat during every match they played. All in all: I LOVED IT!!
