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 bit of Japanese, for an unknown reason called it "Magnum"), and the Twins' super-joint kick.
It is about a student named Ozora Tsubasa who moves to Nankatsu from his hometown because he wants to play soccer in the famous Shuutetsu team. However, his encounters on the first few days forces him to reconsider, and with the advisement of the famous Brazillian soccer player Roberto Hongo who was asked to train Tsubasa by his father, he ended up joining Nankatsu Public School's soccer team, a rival to Shuutetsu that hasn't won in many years. Mainly it is because of Tsubasa's rival beginning with the famous Shuutetsu goalkeeper Wakabayashi Genzo, and the friends he made that go to Nankatsu PS. As the story develops Taro Misaki moves to Nankatsu a few days after Tsubasa and becomes best friends with him, also joining Nankatsu.
The series follows on the games of Nankatsu and friendships and rivalries of Ozora Tsubasa.
I recommend it to everyone. read more
