I watched this anime when I was in elementary school, and including me all my friends were really into it. This got us all into soccer too lol, I would imagine myself being Tsubasa, or Misaki and try harder at soccer.

I recently watched the first three episodes but couldn't find anymore with english subs, or dubs. If anyone knows anyplace I can find them in please let me know.

But as to the anime it is very enjoyable, it combines both reality and super powers such as Tsubasa's super kick (which, while playing the Japanese only Atari game with my friends and not knowing a read more

I watched this anime when I was seven and I still I remember how much I hated it. The plot is about this ELEMENTARY school soccer team (OK the second half is about their junior high life but who gives a @$#). Soccer is a good sports but why elementary school kids? If you want to make a sports-genre anime about passion and dreams and all that stuff, elementary kids are not the way to go, trust me. This naturally leads to horrible characters since they are a bunch of brats anyways. The show literally turned the soccer field into a drama stage, where you read more

Both are hot blooded soccer anime. Both have very cool soccer techniques.

The same kind of anime about football (soccer) life. 
reportRecommended by Cafer
Both anime are about soccer and various teams and championships...while Inazuma Eleven has some sort of supernatural feeling to it (Because of the whole "hissatsu" techniques) and even different characters that appear to be regular humans but aren't, Captain Tsubasa seems to be a more "normal" type of soccer...

Inazuma Eleven evolves faster than C.Tsubasa, taking only 2-3 episodes for a match to end, while in Tsubasa it takes more than a whole episode for the players to run half the field...

Both anime are enjoyable and have the soccer to kick in!

Both are popular old school Football "soccer" anime  
reportRecommended by ssjathena
Both are sports anime. Major is about baseball and Captain Tsubasa is about football. Both start with the male protagonist's childhood and continue his transition to adulthood. Like any other sports anime, both of them care about friendship, teamwork, and rivalry. Even though they both are long anime, you can watch them without getting bored.
