And after this, David Pro will do another season of the high quality masterpiece known as Sagrada Reset just to piss off the JoJo fans even more.

...thanks, David Pro.

Some keep saying “hype” and “childhood memories”, but I’m here thinking “why?”. Also if they are going to remake something at least make sure that the new series have better production values than the old one (something I don’t see here). PV#1 is just meh from a production standpoint.

Again, I don’t see the point of this remake besides the producers (and publishers) trying to cash in on the whole 2018 World Cup hype (+ nostalgia). Instead, they should have adapted another soccer manga (example: 1/11: Juuichi Bun no Ichi), but nope… lets just do a remake of this.

Now that I think about it, an adaptation of 1/11: Juuichi Bun no Ichi would have been pretty cool.
And the Captain Tsubasa mobage which i think is the biggest reason for the remake.

Nice they are rebooting it. Finally will have some soccer anime to watch with my godson.

I hope they will use some new characters also later in story. Or in some less important (shorter) matches. I bet they are aiming to promote Tokyo Olimpics 2020 with this anime.

Jojo part 5 never
jojo fags blown the fuck out

@linkjoker That's why there is absolutely no point to make this thing. (of course, I already know that they won't bother to animate a long part of the story, not even the full original serialization, so... why?)

Holy shit! A new Tsubasa anime! Welcome back childhood.

Captain Tsubasa is what you get if you mix Dragonball and soccer together.
No it would be Inazuma Eleven.


Inazuma Eleven came way after. Captain Tsubasa is the original physics defying one.

@Rei366
It'll really suck if it doesn't even make it to the end of what the first anime did, and even then. As cool as it would be to get an adaption of the manga exclusive series. The space between the first chapter and the end of road to 2002 is like 70 volumes. I honestly can't imagine they're going for that, not in the slightest.
