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

Wonderful Storyline and Direction
2 January 2019 | by masterbvikSee all my reviews

It was not just a fun watch, but also quite emotionally engaging. Unlike other sports anime with unrealistic matches and non existing overarching themes, this one had a believable story-line with great character development.

The soundtrack is amazing and incredibly engaging and enhances the overall experience. I had great fun watching this, but most of all this made me emotionally connect with the characters, which none of the other sports anime managed to do
