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.
This is no serie where the characters will grow to be pro's fast by getting power ups from supertranings. It takes things step by step just like real life.
The story is brilliant. Its one of the best and most wellwritten ones ive read.
I was blown away when i started reading this. I thought it was like every other sport manga. But I was wrong. Area no Kishi is almost as wellwritten like Death Note when it comes to story. Its not just win the league and become best.
This serie has some great art. Everything looks good and its easy too read. Beautiful environments and good details. Nothing to complain about here. Its perfect the way it is.
The Characters are amazing. Everyone looks like people do in real life and they all have unique personalities. You dont get the feeling that you have seen these characters somewhere else. Since this is football the team has 11 players + substitutes, so there is alot of characters in this serie. Its not just the team too. It can be hard to remember everyone.
You will really enjoy this serie. Even if you dont like football. The story / characters will get to you. This is easily one of the best series ever in the mangahistory. You must read it.
And its IMPORTANT that you at least read 10 chapters if you decide to give it a try. Trust me, at least read 10 chapters.
