I'll start off first by throwing this out there, I don't really like soccer all that much. Watching it is pretty damn boring, and playing it isn't much better in my opinion. Now, with that out of the way, let me just say that I really loved this anime. I know, you're like, "But he just said he pretty much hates soccer. Is he weird?" Yes, this anime indeed be about soccer, but it is much more than just that. This anime follows a middle school boy, Shou Kazamatsuri, who enjoys soccer and works extremely hard to get better and rise to the top. We his transition from a 3rd string substitute for one school, to an amazing player for another. I'm now re-watching this series for a second time and still enjoying it, probably even more so than the first time. I think what really makes this anime so inspiring to watch is Shou's character. I believe that he is meant to have a little piece of everyone inside of him, me, you, and anyone who watches this show. I believe that he has aspects and traits that can be found in every single one of us, I think this is partially the reason for me watching this anime and enjoying it so much, it's almost as if sometimes I'm seeing a bit of myself in the anime in front of me. When I watch this, I don't think, oh I'm watching a soccer anime, I think of it as a story of a boy who is striving to obtain his goal, a boy who is willing to work harder to get to the top because he can! This definitely is an anime which is worth watching at least once, even if you're like me who doesn't like soccer, I definitely encourage you to watch this series. The story and the characters are definitely the driving points of the anime and what make it what it is. The art and music definitely are enjoyable too and bring out an even more desire to continue watching as well.

Okay this anime might be a little childish but it's still fun to watch if you like sports anime then you will like this one aswell. Watching a person go from bad to decent is pretty fun to watch. I'd recommend it if you are looking for a sports anime to watch and you cant decide what to choose.
