THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Decent start. Tsukushi is portrayed as an underdog already and somewhat timid for a character. He needs to stop blushing so much! On the other hand, Jin is the cool type of guy.

I like the pacing so far, it introduces some of the main characters while establishing the themes and sports gimmicks. Seriously though, I hope they adapt Tsukushi's progress as a character and soccer player because so far, he's quite a klutz on the field. On the other hand, I do admire his spirit. 24 episodes, not sure how much they will adapt but this show has a ton of potential imo.

Watching this make me feel so good, so relaxed, like watching something from my childhood(ok, i'm overreacting a bit).
I loved it! i want more.

And oh my god, i almost didn't recognize Yoshitsugu voice.

I liked it quite a bit.

I get Baby Steps and Whistle vibes from this, the mc is new at a sport and is trying hard to get good.
It's promising and I'm excited for the next ep.

I've read a few chaps of the manga a while ago and it seems like they took out certain bits.

That was a really good first episode. Probably the best so far along with ReLIFE.

Good two MC's, soccer is fun to watch, too. When they showed his foot...this guy is so determined.

It's good to see another soccer anime finally getting animated, there aren't much around (that aren't filled with superpowers). I like the mc, complete beginner underdog. Looking forward to see where this show goes

I really liked this first episode and well, sport anime always have this great atmosphere around it that make it enjoyable to watch.

I sure like the characters I have seen so far, Kazama in particular.

As for MC... well. I would much prefer different MC. I know what kind of sport anime it tries to become. We get the usual underdog story with useless MC that starts the sport in highschool. What's more though he doesn't even seem to have any special skills or qualities that could make him a good player. He is simple average guy that is stubborn and don't know when to give up and he pushes himself beyond the limits and... well isn't this is super typical protagonist, so typical that I have long since got sick of it.

His set of qualities as a character is something that about every MC of underdog stories have with the exception that he doesn't have anything that makes him unique or memorable. Unless the memorable part are supposed to be those two pink circles on his cheeks. What are they doing there though? I don't know.

Other than MC though, show looks great, no hints of superpowers either and I don't remember when was the last time I saw football anime. I will be watching this one for sure. Unless something bad happens.

Nice start. Tsukushi's determination as a rookie is remarkable (I kind of wonder why considering there isn't much passion he shows towards soccer in general so far, or I'm just missing out), and Jin also seems like a cool guy. Looking forward to both of their progress. Good OP and ED.

Ah, ah... MC had it pretty rough since the start; he's a total beginner. The blondie is so cool and dreamy (I might've fallen for him already lol). Things are progressing fast, I see.

That was a really fulfilling episode.

Was great to see Kazama and Tsukshi having fun in the first small game.
That Kazama intercept and Tsukshi goal was glorious!

Those are some harsh practices, Tsukushi's determination truly is something. I wonder what it is that keeps him going, It's not like he had a passion for football in the first place.

Same here, Haven't seen a football anime since Area no Kishi years ago. So glad this came out :D

Well, nothing new here but maybe it gets some innovation down the line. But i certainly dont expect this to reach the level of Aoki Densetsu Shoot.
Yet it has decent comedy, especially the part where Tsukushi makes the goal and everybody jumps on him. Looking at the guy in the middle and the angle it seemed like "Here, dick in mouth". I had to laugh so hard there.

Wasn't the first chapter of the manga quite different from this?

I'm just glad to finally see all the soccer scenes animated. And I hope they keep all the funny Kazama scenes. He's amazing.

I really like Kazuma's character

What ? They kinda changed the way kazama and tsukishi met . Someone was bullying tsukishi and then kazama stepped in to help and he then offered him to come play soccer with them . Too bad they changed that, it had some good comedy in it lol . Anyways, it's nothing that annoys me much since i freakin liked this episode. Don't mind tsukushi blushing much cause he's a nervous person here. And I'm liking the animated football scenes here . Lol tsukushi receiving the hit in his balls and bumping into the post were as funny as in the manga. Also kazama is as cool as in the manga especially with that interception . Lol watching italy vs germany and watching this at same time .

Didn't think that I'd like Tsukushi, but he's not a bad character at all. I was pretty hyped up for this anime, and the first episode didn't disappoint.

I'm surprised Tsukushi is even still alive after everything he went through in this episode. RIP to Tsukushi's balls. His foot toward the end was nasty, thank goodness I wasn't eating anything at that moment. I can already tell Tsukushi is gonna be that kind of MC who sucks complete horse shit at first but his stubborn personality will eventually lead to him becoming a great player. Nothing new of course, but I don't really mind, as long as I find it enjoyable. Pretty decent start so far, looking forward to more.
I'm no special story or anything. I'm just a manga that wants to be read, like you could find anywhere. But, if, for argument's sake, you were to adapt me into an anime series, it would certainly be....a tragedy.

I really liked this. Kinda reminded of of old school sports anime dk why lol.

One question though, how come kazama chose tsukushi at the start? I thought he recognized him or something but he didn't know him so I thought that was kinda weird :/

I haven't ever watched a soccer anime so I decided to pick this one up. Decent first episode. I really like Kazama. Tsukushi on the other hand the constant blushing is bugging me. I'm not the biggest fan of the complete beginner route in a sports anime but maybe it'll be good. If nothing else I gotta respect the effort and determination the MC showed this episode I really enjoyed seeing that.

They made it look as if he took an interest in him. In the manga as i said in my previous comment, tsukushi was being bullied and kazama stepped in to help and they hanged out a bit . Finally, kazama asked him if he wanted to play soccer with him .

Well it didn't bother me much that they made kazama look as if he took an interest in him and had his eye on him and thus invited him. Plus, tsukishi didn't look like the person who would reject an offer or a person who approaches him considering kazama needed a sub asap. But taking the manga way definitely would have been better .

Animation was good, liked the characters. Let's see how it goes from here

I don't usually watch sports anime but this was a pretty nice episode. MC is relatable (for me). Jin is such a cutie pie when he blushes.

Absolute disappointment! This MC is a let down, Kazama would be a much better MC. Also, who's with me that it's bullshit that Kazama doesn't have many friends and gets so excited over making friends with a noob.
FUCK THE CHARACTER COUNT CHECK!

Nothing special to be honest,

The only huge complaint is that the budding bond between tsukushi and Kazama kinda feels Rushed....
oh and that tsukushi is a massive idiot newbie

Best starting episode of the season as of now and what I believe that's gonna be a contender for AOTS. Incredible visuals, characters that have room to evolve, detailed character designs, as expected of MAPPA.

A very nice and calm way of starting the first episode. Did like the way the MC worked and that starting scene of an actual football match was just too good. Hoping to see more of this anime. 24 episodes... would have wanted more XD Lets hope it gets more seasons.

Tsuki-chan might be retarded at times, but what he did when they all went home is respectable, that's how you put in work and that's how you make it out there.

Haven't seen a football series in a while so this is going to be fresh, also really love the VA for Tsuki-chan, great job.

The MC will be the death of this show for me. He's unlikable and has no talent whatsoever. Sure, he'll grow and maybe become useful, but he's not like the other MCs of shows such as Ace of Diamond, Kuroko, Haikyuu, etc. where they all continue to improve from their already existing talent.

At least he's got spunk...
