Football Chronicles, Chapter 3: Ginga e Kickoff!!
Note: some football animes will be named in this review for the sake of comparison. This is, mostly, to see how the game is faced in each series. Of course, no spoilers.
Also, football as the real, english one (aka soccer), not the American one.

Ginga e Kickoff!! (GeK!) is the latest football bet offered in 2012. Gek! was a really pleasant surprise, not only for the release itself, but because there was already another football anime airing at the time: Area no Kishi (technically three, with Inazuma Eleven Go 2... but IE is... special).

Sa hajimeyou ka?:P

So,today my review is about a under-rated anime which actually does not deserve that less of attention from people since it is a great anime.The few people who have watched it only happen to dislike it.The truth is opposite of it as it is one of the best football/soccer anime I have seen so far.It is just a little bit difficult to start watching since the art looks childish but once you get the hang of it,it become very interesting & entertaining.

The main complaint which people have against this series is about its story which is centered around elementary school soccer read more

It boasts no amazing, out of this world moves, the characters play pure soccer and it's a story grounded in reality with one or two amazing events that wouldn't be out of place in children's movie. After all, it IS aimed at children and it has a soothing atmosphere, a gentle score, and plenty of idealism.

But it's read more

Ginga e Kickoff is a hidden gem of sports genre in anime.

It started with Shou, our main character, an elementary student soccer player meeting Erika, a transfer student whose ability in playing soccer succeeds Shou in many levels. From asking her to play with him and then miraculously meeting a female professional soccer player, Shou then strives on to bring back the Moroyama soccer team with its old and new members and a better coach that can accepts all of the players, both in personality and skills.

Story wise it is (9/10), the team does not just strives to win a competition, but to become the read more
