Not bad.
Looks like we'll have to iron out Murakoshi and co.

How unfortunate for Murakoshi though, but it's obviously gonna be better for the team.
I wonder what the results will be for self-practice.

I still want to know Matsumi's exact reasons for leaving in the past.
But we'll definitely have to wait for that.

Actually it's good for Murakoshi also. Didn't you notice what Tatsumi told him?
Murakoshi was forced to hold all the team in his shoulders and even play coach because everyone was useless with the resold of not being a player as he was.
He freed him from captain so he can make him feel like an ordinary player again and just play the football that he knows. He told him that he no longer need to do all the other staff because he is there.
So he has lost a disobedient captain but he gained a nice player that he can use in the game.

Now let's see what team his gonna built for the first game and how he plans to use it.

Ah yeah, I forgot about that.
Although he is free from his duty as captain, I wonder how long it'll take for him to trust Tatsumi more and become a better player.
That's what I'm looking for.

So Tatsumi learned his tactics in the army? Break them down and then rebuild them? This show has the potential to be very good but I can't feel the pacing should be a bit faster. Maybe the manga is like this, I don't know, all I know is I want more.

Since the manga is ongoing, I suppose we can't expect them to beat Barcelona in the next 24 episodes, huh...

This anime is great so far. Tatsumi is going to really whip the ETU into shape. Murakoshi needs to suck it up and realize that the teams sucks a lot and Tatsumi is going to help. Looking forward to the next episode though.

Even if they're not press conference, strictly speaking, you should watch these speeches :

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0i5A9SB-ACM
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bEjJBZwuxDI&feature=related

In a way, Tatsumi ressembles Yang, with a slightly more arrogant attitude about him that makes him feel like the Special One too.


Well, regarding the ep, it was as good as the first one, with a very slow pacing and still no true football scene, but well, the characters are great and the football spirit is there too, so I'm in.

In every age, in every place, the deeds of men remain the same.

lol Murakoshi doesn't even realize what would happen if he broke a leg or retired. The team would essentially crumble just like what happened when Tatsumi left. Other then the obvious I'm guessing Tatsumi is hoping Murakoshi will fill the role of moral support for the team while the younger kid fills the role of leader. This way there's no "Ace" or "Mr. ETU" but in staid a group of great soccer players with a leader and moral support to get them through the game.

For a second, I thought Tatsumi was going to offer him a position as an assistant coach. Oh well. Still, this was a really good episode that approaches the sport in a non-it's-all-about-the-guts bullshit fashion that most crappy sports anime coughIppocough fall into.

Well I can't say that this show amazed my but it looks good, and probably I will continue to watching it.
About the episode - Takeshi is kinda harsh on Shigeyuki, but probably its his style, and also as we see in further parts of ep its also for his sake - he have to realize that he can't do everything by himself, and take all responsibility on his shoulders ;]

It's time for some goddamn introspection, I tell you what.

Also, any decent football team wouldn't let another team lure them into tiring themselves out by chasing a ball being casually kicked around halfway. ETU kinda suck.

What sport can be better than this one where you have to handle balls with your feets?

Looks like the next captain will be Tsubaki. I love the match, altough it's kinda doesn't make sense for me about how come the subs squad can't take the ball back even once. Maybe they didn't show it because of the time constraint i guess.

Anyway, a good episode and i expect a lot more interesting things will come.

Can't be better... that's true... but the shadows on the characters are actually like that in the manga... so I guess the Animation Studio is actually following that and keeping that "trademark" treat from the manga....

A bit better... yet the animation has to be worked on... the episode itself was really interesting since it started on the inter squad match and ended in the Pre Season Training Camp... and at a different place from the common ones... Oh and Tatsumi the guy he is XD

Press conference was undoubtly a funny one... what kind of Manager shows publicly his laziness and replies to all the questions with a "I don't know"... I guess he's saying the truth, but he really pointed out somethign really interesting... Murakoshi being relieved from the Captaincy is a dangerous move... 'cause you can break the team calmness... but it actually needs that since the Team is slowly crumbling apart.... Murakoshi is wonderful, but carrying all the burden usually makes you less effective... I'm really amazed of Tatsumi's analytic capacities.... He's great at that... I wonder what will happen from now... Will we see ETU winning the World Club Cup? XD I wanna see that!

Signs,
Green

Bit put off by the animation, but hey, I can barely remember the last time I watched a football anime (whistle, wild striker, Inazuma?).

Looking forward to see how the storyline develops.

I never thought I'd love a soccer sports anime, since the sport itself goes scoreless for ages at a time and just generally seems less action packed than football or hell, even tennis, but this anime is amazing and makes me want to read the manga as well. Tatsumi is a bad ass, and Seki Tomokazu's voice is absolutely perfect for him.

Handling filthy balls with your feets is more badass than handling them with your hands or smack them with your racket....Oh wai-, tennis might be on par with sucker in term of badass-ness, but not foot(er where does the 'foot' come to play in this sport already?)ball fo' sho.



If he's not with us, he's AGAINST us!!!

Soccer is one of the manly sport you ever get.....the one fucking ball that kicked by multiple player in order to score goal.Not to mention the die-hard fans that will turned into hooligans if their favorite team loss & fight with other fans.

For somebody who hates watching any sports IRL, this show is pretty good.
Next episode looks good since the tension between the regulars and subs is going to be brought out. I will make my decision on this show from that.

Episode 2

What a cool and fun series this one is! I’m enjoying watching GK so much!

This episode made me like Tatsumi even more than before, he is just so awesome! I love his personality, his way of thinking, he is such an interesting character.

I got very excited while watching the game of the regulars vs. the substitutes, just as excited as when I watch a real soccer game.

I figured out what Tatsumi was trying to do even before Murakoshi did, that was such a smart tactic by Tatsumi.

After the conversation between Tatsumi and Murakoshi I have a new respect for Murakoshi and Tatsumi. I’m really interested in seeing how the relationship between Tatsumi and Murakoshi develops, especially because they are not in the best of terms atm and because they are so different from each other.

I so can’t wait to watch the next episode!

Hmmm, this anime is pretty good so far. I wasn't interested at first because it's a sports anime, but I figured what the hell and decided to try it out anyway. The main reason I like it is definitely Tatsumi.

I'm an avid soccer(Football:P) player, and I found this show, or rather the tactics, to be somewhat disappointing. Actually, I'm just disappointed with the show right now in general, even 2 episodes in. The animation certainly is poor, but can be looked past. However, the action scenes just don't capture the feel of a game, and everything is lacking in an impact.

As for Tatsumi's coaching skill, I know confidence means alot, but that and physical fitness are not enough to pull out a game. Experience and skill is what really wins, not necessarily mobility. If the any real group of starters would knock the crap out a bunch of young subs, skill-wise and physically. And you are a piss-poor athlete if you are that tired after running for only thirty minutes. ETU must have some really crappy players to have such a thing happen. But when going against real competition with these promoted 'subs', they should get slaughtered. In soccer, experience and skill is a greater factor than being fit; and the other teams will have fit and experienced players.

Tatsumi's got to have something better up his sleeve, or this is going to be one long season of another unrealistic sports anime. These tactics might work in another sport, but certainly don't fit into a real soccer atmosphere.

My GUESS for takeshi leaving the team and joining the England in the Past..

He wanted to know soccer better from England's perspective as they are the ones on top of the soccer leaderboards..
To Learn all the strategies from them and later join the Japan team(ETU) once again to implement them and Bring the underdogs to No. 1 in the world!!

According to me 2nd episode was slightly a let down compared to the 1st one..
Hope it gets better...

I also liked the press conference, but telling them to self-train while he warmed himself up from the cold was even better. From the second episode, I can tell that this series is going to be a lot like One Outs; the main characters are pretty similar and just as outrageous and unconventional.

Haha what a press conference.

First time I'm trying the sports genre in anime and the only reason I'm gonna continue is Tatsumi.
