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 randomly stumbled upon this anime, by finding an amazing OST from it. So I decided to look up the anime itself. At first I was a bit sceptical about 127 episodes. But when I got past the first 3 episodes it began to get interesting. The show introduces tons of characters, whereas you will see some re-appear again, and some will get tons of spotlight. Around 50% of the characters will get an in-depth background story, which allows the characters to develop even further.

The main thing in the anime is soccer, at first I thought it would be plain ball kicking, but then 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

This is the first anime that I ever watched online. I was in love with the anime on tv, and unfortunately it only aired early in the morning at 6 am, so I set my alarm clock extremely early every time just to watch it. Unfortunately the dub version wasn't that far in my country, and I had to watch the rest of the show online. Glad I did.

The first thing I want to say is that I'd rate the sound of Inazuma Eleven the highest of all. In fact, out of all animes that I have watched so far, there was no anime I read more

I finished viewing a few days ago the first series of Inazuma Eleven. I have to admit that the result is not bad, although it is the umpteenth cores taken from a popular topic such as football. This time, however, we are not faced with mileage fields "hill" Holly e Benji or games that last bet on betting. Must be pointed out that the setting and the way in which the small players Raimon and the other teams are moving quite reminiscent of those of the movie Shaolin Soccer, with shots that become necessary secrets and balls of fire, ice, penguins with appear from the read more

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.
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.
Kakeru and Endou are the players of soccer tournament
Both are hot blooded soccer anime. Both have very cool soccer techniques.
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 a huge island completely dedicated to their respective games (In YuGiOh, is pretty similar to Lord of the Flies, only with a lot less subtext and a lot more card games). Also, in one moment, the finals are played in airships!.
Both series are very flashy, and are equally spectacular and ridiculous xD.
Whistle! is also about Football! But more realistic than Inazuma Eleven! Though the enjoyment is a little less! XD
