Synopsis

East Tokyo United has been struggling in Japan's top football league for a few years. In an effort to improve their performance, ETU hires a new coach, the slightly eccentric Tatsumi Takeshi. Tatsumi was once a star player on ETU before abandoning the team, but has proven himself as manager of an English amateur team. The task won't be easy as the teams pitted against ETU have bigger budgets and better players. However, Tatsumi is an expert at Giant Killing.

Giant Killing is like Slam Dunk meets football (or soccer to Americans) from the Manager's point of view; a former local superstar who is scouted and transferred to a European club comes back as a coach to the team where he reached the height of his fame as a player.

The series has everything you'd want from a sports manga: relentless action, budding bromance, character development/growth, and best of all, this is one of the rare sports mangas where characters don't rely on gimmicks to excel in the sport. (see: Prince of Tennis)

The plot and the characters are very well crafted; the author also did a read more

ETU is in deep trouble. A poor football team like that has hardly any hopes for recovery if the players lose will to fight. When the team is on verge of completely falling into despair, the last resort shows up on the horizon – hiring a new manager, that is, but not just some chance manager. Takeshi Tatsumi used to be praised as a genius footballer back in the old days. He, however, retired after a successful career and ended up managing a team in England. And now the ex-star of ETU picks up the gauntlet, returning to Japan as a coach of his former read more

First of all, I apologize if I made any kind of English mistakes. I'm not native speaker

*No spoilers*

-- GIANT KILLING--
Best sport work after KnB to me. Perfect manga/anime

* This manga has adapted but the adaption is horrible. Therefore, avoid the anime and read the manga if you dislike bad adaption *

Story: 9/10
The story is pretty good about a soccer team who want to be acknowledged. Its not that simple, Anyway if you are bored of power/supernatural animes or manga read this. No "moe" or such cute girls here. I'm pretty sure all soccer fans will like it.

Art: 8/10
the art is good for sports manga. read more

Like Captain Tsubasa and some other sports manga Giant killing is a football manga. The stroy sets in Japan League with the club East Tokyo United facing the crisis. Ex-Star and manager of a division 5 football club manager in England Tatsumi was brought back to manage ETU and end their crisis of several years.

Now the main character of the manga is not a 16/17 year old high school student but a 35 year old adult who manages the team. The main object of his is not to win every time but is to Have fun in the match,Thrill, giant killing which was seen read more
