Synopsis

The main character, Endou Mamoru, is a very talented goalkeeper and the grandson of one of the strongest goalkeepers in Japan, who died before he was born. Even though his skills are incredible his school lacks a real soccer club as the 6 other members don't appear very interested even in training. But as soon as a mysterious forward called Gouenji moves to Endou's town, the young goalkeeper sets out to find and recruit members for his soccer team.

I started to watch Inazuma Eleven out of pure boredom and ended up with a total obsession of it. It is truely one of the best shows I have ever seen! You don't have to be a soccer fan to like it (to tell the truth I really dislike soccer ...) or to have an understandig of it.

The story was, well, suprising. It is a bit unrealistic to use soccer for world domination or try to kill kids because of soccer but it is an anime - it doesn't have to be realistic. At first I was really annoyed by seeing soccer-playing aliens who read more

Before "Inazuma Eleven" came along, I always thought "Captain Tsubasa" represented very well the football issue ("football" in UK, "soccer" in USA). It still does, altough it can be a bit boring sometimes (the first episodes of the 1983 version are unforgettable)

But in my opinion, so far, "Inazuma Eleven" is really the best, with "Ganbare Kickers" coming in second place. Sure there's a bit of exageration with those football moves when playing a game, but the football game moments are nice to see (nice sound and art as well)

What's really the best is the story out of the football games combined with a great cast read more

Inazuma Eleven, is one of the best animes in my life. The Story is incredible, love the plot, it's very original, not compared to Captain Tsubasa series, i watch the 80 episodes currently, the story in the first episodes are good.

But...
the true action starts in the season 2, when aliens attack, that episodes are epic. in the third season, the true institute Alien is comming to action. and the fourth and actual season the best players of Japan reunites forming the Inazuma Japan.

The Art is Cool. Yasunori Mitsuda's music are awesome, and makes me enjoyment this anime more

Love the Naruto's Seiyuu as Endou Mamoru.
Love the read more

I recently had the pleasure of watching Inazuma Eleven for a third time and I can safely say it is still as evergreen and exciting as I found it the first and the second time I watched it.

Presented by Oriental Light & Magic, the studio that gave us Pokemon, Inazuma Eleven has been a huge success in Japan and several other countries and it has good reasons for so.
The story is centered around a young and energetic football freak, Endou Mamoru, who is trying to gather members for the local school football team; The Raimon Junior High. With his charismatic personality and never-giving read more

Both animes are extremely over-exaggerated and unrealistic with their techniques, but you know what... who cares!!! They are extremely fun, enjoyable, and very easy to get into. It feels like you're watching Dragonball Z and Sports coming together as one.

Anime: Yu☆Gi☆Oh! Duel Monsters
Both series are protagonized by kids of more or less the same age. Also, in both series, something as trivial as card games (YuGiOh!) or football/soccer (Inazuma Eleven) is taken to the extreme that the life of a character, several characters, cities, countries or the world may be in danger. Plus, the world revolves around their respective games: in Inazuma Eleven, the biggest conspiracies and the more serious conflicts in the history of the humanity can be solver with one (yes, one!) soccer match, while in YuGiOh!, some companies spend millions to create hyper-realistic holograms to make the game more captivating. In both series there's  read more

Anime: Diamond no Ace
The main character of both series give off the same vibe, they both love the sport they play with all their heart, and most importantly want to play it with their friends.
Other than that the comedy is also almost the same. The only difference for me is that Inazuma Eleven is about soccer and Diamond no Ace about baseball.
