Best news i've heard for ages. This is my favourite manga, and i was thrilled in learning it will get its own anime. Why can't it be January now, oh well. Merry Christmas everyone. BEST PRESENT EVER!!! :S ~ end fan girl rant. Anyoe thinking of watching this, i suggest you do so. This manga isn't just about soccer, it has so much more to offer, and if the anime holds true to the manga most will surely need a few tissues at some point in this show. :)

Hell if I know......but to get butthurt over people thinking it meant American Football is retarded.

I guess I'll have to agree, but calling American football

real football
is even more retarded.

There's no such thing as "real" football, there are just 2 kinds of it.

Facepalm at the people thinking a facepalm was needed in the first place.

Then why does the title of the thread say "football"?

Sounds cliché.

But it's shounen + sports.
COUNT ME IN.

I'm not really sure if I'll be looking forward to this, I mean the manga doesn't even have enough chapters out for an entire 25 ep season... Anime creators these days are getting desperate.


What are you talking about? Aera no Kishi has over 200 chapters out. Even if it's pacing is glacial, which I doubt, that's more than enough for a season.

Bumping topic up~~

i won't actually be surprised if the anime ends up overtaking the current manga scanlation releases, like what happened with giant killing XD

Some interesting football mangas out there, this one has a good back story to it as well, hopefully they can bring it out well enough =P

Wouldn't mind a fantasista anime :P

Sounds like it could be as good as Giant Killing.

Though instead of a new football anime I'd rather they make another season of Giant Killing. But this seems to have potential too.

By the way, about Area no Kishi, is it going to be realistic like Giant Killing of more special like Captain Tsubasa and Izuma Eleven?


Well it's definitely more realistic than both captain tsubasa and izuma eleven but don't expect it to be too realistic since it's a manga. If I had to describe it it'll be school kids displaying moves even zidane or ronaldinho would be proud of yet not as flashy as tsubasa.

...though most if not all sub groups are american, them calling it soccer is really going to annoy me -_-
Why always whine and bash american about calling Football "Soccer"? For your information, Japanese call it "Soccer" too but strangely I never read anywhere "Stop calling it "soccer" you japanese dumb!". Same thing goes for Australian and South African.

And even Italian do not call it Football (Piede Pallonne) nor Soccer but "Calcio". Is it that bad? Come on, cut the crap, football or soccer (which basicaly is a contraction of "Football Association" which is the original real name of football) is the same thing and you can call it like you want.

By the way, about Area no Kishi, is it going to be realistic like Giant Killing of more special like Captain Tsubasa and Izuma Eleven?
