I'm excited. Picking up that first manga of Whistle! when I was a kid was what made me love soccer again and dream to play it.

Late to the news, but I was excited then immediately unexcited lol. Revoicing huh... I've read the manga twice cuz I really like it, although it's been a long time. Didn't know the anime sucks, it's kind of an odd choice to just do a revoice. Seems like little to no point to me. I might try it out then since I was planning to watch the anime some day.

You guys are complaining about Whistle and not mentioning the most important problem in the anime: they never take run-ups on dead balls. How do you get any proper hit without a run up?

it's not, days is much better than whistle and has less shitty characters
which character on whistle that really shitty? IIRC, i know they are less likeable than days, but the character relationship is much feel natural than days... so i rate their character same...
the main kid, the other main kid and the other one

i recall only the blonde kid was good

the relationships felt forced and awkward

So...wait, they're using the same animation, jut using new voices? LOL, that's Kai levels of laziness. Just do a full reboot.
