THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
Damn, Irina's true reasons are pretty mature for a show like this lol.
But man, episode was EXCELLENT and very hype, I can't wait for the finale but it's too rushed :/
It needed like 2-3 more episodes for the finale to be perfect, put on paper it could've actually been the greatest finale in IE :o

I've really enjoyed this series (and all the other Inazuma Eleven series). Every week after watching it I keep thinking about the next episode all week. I felt like Orion was actually one of the better series, a lot of players coming on with a lot of new hissatsus and a lot of actual playing soccer. But I enjoyed them all really.
But with one episode left I really can't tell how they are going to wrap it up in one episode, unless somehow it will be an hour long special. Too many things we still need to see
- How will they return from a 3 point deficit? I seem to remember one episode where their tactic was "lets just get 3 points really fast" and they got them within 90 seconds
- What exactly will come of this unlimited substitution rule?
- Will we see Endou's "God Catch" equivalent where he will turn it around?
- Any more story on the twin tail chick?
- With Fudou and Kidou back, a Haizaki/Fudou/Kidou emperor penguin no 3? They can't have brought them back just to say "lol we're here guys". Or basically, a new penguin move.
- Some The Earth/Saikyou Eleven Hadou type hissatsu with everyone's feelings who love soccer
- What was on Kageyama's mind that made him appear with the shadow team out of nowhere? Or what did they offer or ask of him.
- The continuation of the match with Russia where they can play fun soccer?
- Will Inamori get to talk with his Dad?
Might be a sequel, Ares game isn't even out yet. The game might be postponed to Summer 2020 (with Tokyo Olympics) because 2019 only has 3 months left and we still have no specific release date other than just '2019'.
We're definitely done with the anime side though, Hiro confirmed that Inazuma Eleven will end with Orion and that there might be some spin offs short episodes only on internet (so not even on TV), but that's all :(
