Believing himself to be useless at football, Aizawa Kakeru opts to become the manager of his school's football team, while his brother Suguru is its ace, and is even good enough to represent Japan. However, Kakeru may be harbouring a strong talent within himself that only Suguru can see, and the two often get into arguments over Kakeru's denial of his skills. Things are made more complicated with the return of Nana, an old playmate of theirs that Kakeru has a crush on. Join the brothers in their journey to the national and even international championships! (Source: MU)

Story written under the penname Igano, Hiroaki.

Area no Kishi is a manga about football. This is not just any sportmanga, but a wellwritten one. The story is incredible deep and wellwritten. You will be suprised how wellwritten this sportmanga is. You might even shed a tear or two. This is not the typical sportserie wich usually is Sport / comedy. Area no Kishi is a sport / slice of life serie. Its 100% serious.

Area no Kishi is about Aizawa Kakeru. Aizawa is a talented fotbollplayer who aims for becoming a pro, just like his older brother Suguru who is already good enough to play in the U-15 national team.

Okay, this is my first time writing a review so bare with me. Okay so basically I probably suck at writing reviews but this story frustrated me so much that I had to speak out ! Kakeru, is the main character who is always running away because he feels as though he's not good enough for football (soccer) but then after some turn in events he tries with all his might and gives it his all, but even so..every character who knows about his heart (which is now he's genius brother's won't spoil) they all act as though it's his brother and every time he read more

Eventhough the type of sport is not the same (Akatsuki=Basketball and Area no Kishi=Soccer), both are still about sports. In both you can see that main characters are excellent players but they lack ability at something (Akatsuki=Scoring and Kakeru=Shooting with the left). They were also reject by the school's club. But, later joined them.
