Captain Tsubasa is a soccer-themed manga by Yoichi Takahashi.
The story focuses on the 11-year-old boy Tsubasa Ohzora. His dream is to be a football star and he wants to win the World Cup with Japan. The story was very entertaining, I often read 5 or more volumes in a row^^
The characters are young school boys who love to play soccer. There are Tsubasa´s friends, like Genzo Wakabayashi, Taro Misaki and Jun Misugi. But he has also many rivals, like Kojiro Hyuga. The team´s trainer is the former member of the Brazil national team Roberto Hongo, who had to end his career due to an eye injury. I liked almost every character.
The manga is over twenty years old, but nevertheless the style is very nice. Of course CT is no match to newer manga.
I like sports manga. And I´m also a huge soccer fan, so I had to read Captain Tsubasa. In my opinion CT is the best available soccer manga. A must-read for soccer fans and other people that are interested in sports. read more
