Synopsis

While other schools in Japan compete for the title of being the best soccer team in the country, Raimon Middle School's soccer club, Inazama Eleven, struggles to rise from the verge of being disbanded. The grandson of Inazuma Eleven's first generation goalkeeper and captain of the team, Mamoru Endou, takes the challenge of kicking the long neglected club back into shape. To do this, he'll need a little help and more than a little luck.

Mamoru Endou finds hope in the hands of Shuuya Gouenji, a brilliant young player who has given up on soccer. Mamoru is determined to get Shuuya and other new recruits to join his team, no matter what the cost. Is his passion and determination enough to treat the ailing club? Or is there no more hope for the team?

Background

Inazuma Eleven first started out as a sports role-playing game for the Nintendo DS. The series has had numerous sequels since then. The manga was first published in the Shogakukan CoroCoro Comic and the anime series was produced by game developer Level-5 along with TV Tokyo and OLM. The anime aired in numerous countries around Asia and Europe. Aside from the anime, manga and video games, there is also an animated film and guidebooks for the series.

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

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

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
