Synopsis

Captain Tsubasa is the passionate story of an elementary school student whose thoughts and dreams revolve almost entirely around the love of soccer. 11-year-old Tsubasa Oozora started playing football at a very young age, and while it was mostly just a recreational sport for his friends, for him, it developed into something of an obsession.

In order to pursue his dream to the best of his elementary school abilities, Tsubasa moves with his mother to Nankatsu city, which is well-known for its excellent elementary school soccer teams. But although he was easily the best in his old town, Nankatsu has a lot more competition, and he will need all of his skill and talent in order to stand out from this new crowd.

He encounters not only rivals, but also new friends like the pretty girl Sanae Nakazawa and the talented goalkeeper, Genzo Wakabayashi, who shares the same passion as Tsubasa, and will prove to be a treasured friend in helping him push towards his dreams. Representing Japan in the FIFA World Cup is Tsubasa’s ultimate dream, but it will take a lot more than talent to reach it.

“I will score a goal but first let me remember my entire life”
-Tsubasa Ozora

Some of the criticism I’ve seen up to now about Captain Tsubasa is how unrealistic it is. As a person who has grown up watching and playing football, it’s obvious I’ve never seen –and will never see- some of the skills certain characters display on the show. Still, it is because of these that the show is exciting.

Based on the manga by Takahashi Yoichi, Captain Tsubasa displays the intriguingly addictive story of Tsubasa’s football career while in elementary and middle school, first stone in he’s odyssey pursuing the dream read more

I have watched every episode with much gusto, and this is the best adaptation of Captain Tsubasa, even though there were some areas that David Pro could have done differently.

Many people do comment on how the soundtrack isn't as good as the previous adaptations, and while I can agree partly, it's definitely also not the complete bore that people are making it out to be. The music in the second arc (29 to 52) greatly improves the dramatic flair. The tracks aren't as present, but on the whole, they complemented the animation pretty well. Also, every time Hyuga had the ball, they played a particular read more

Preliminary
I wasn't sure what to think about new Tsubasa series when I first heard about it. But then when first episode aired it bring so many memories from my childhood that I'm more than happy to watch it. Even if I know the story I'm enjoying all of it and I like that creators choosed original path and they gave us one more time all characters that we love. Tsubasa, Wakabayashi, Roberto, let's just wait for Misaki and Kojiro then I bet all fans even the young ones will fall in love with this anime. If I should rate it as an hardcore anime fan read more

Preliminary
This is my first exposure to anything Captain Tsubasa related. Honestly, I'm not impressed with this anime, but I neither find it outright terrible. I find it below-average and just "meh". This is out of 10 episodes and honestly I'm losing interest to keep watching.

Story: 4
Captain Tsubasa's story is a simple one. The story of a young prodigy who as a young child survived a potentially fatal hit-and-run by having his Soccer Ball serve as cushion. Now, I found that scene stupid in the anime with the way they presented it. It's so unrealistic and...hilarious. The story is typical based off the 10 episodes I've read more
