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
