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 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

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

I found this gem on the TV first (this was my first anime). I was really interested in soccer when I was younger and it was airing on TV. But yeah, it stopped airing and then I started watching it on PC and eventually came to know about anime. I'm so glad that I found this anime and I'm so glad that THIS VERY anime was my first one. I honestly can't express my love towards this anime in words.. I honestly, honestly love it than anything else. This anime (just by watching it, seriously) taught me how to play soccer. Yes, it's just that read more

I don't have any interest in soccer, neither having a reason to watch a kiddy anime while I'm, in fact, 17 years old, especially I like the dark, action theme animes instead of sport and light-hearted shows. My first meeting with IE was when someone used Fubuki Fanart as signature and it looked really beautiful ( I was deceived lol). My first thought was "WTF is this, so ridiculous" when watching IE GO. And yet, I was hooked by it, watched the whole IE GO series, and then watched IE. I would say, I love IE more than its sequel.

I didn't expect a sport series read more

Anime: Eyeshield 21
Both are hot blooded sports.Both is a about weak team that has not enough player at 1st trying to recruiting all kind of weird people , completing in tournaments and getting strong in the proccess.

Anime: Prince of Tennis
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: 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.

Anime: Whistle!
Whistle! is also about Football! But more realistic than Inazuma Eleven! Though the enjoyment is a little less! XD

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
