Its the element of surprise. Wakabayashi should naturally be at the far left corner if he wanted to stop Levin. Instead, the ball went from Levin to Sho to Schneider within say a second.
Yes & No. Sometimes, you have to mark midfielders in the midfield. In this case, Schneider's a striker and marking him in the midfield is redundant.
The point of marking a player is not to take...
The coach reminds me of Light Yagami for some reason.
Man. Nakayama must be real nice to be parodied like that. If it wasn't a parody, he's still real cool.
XD. All that brutality and its still just the middle of the first half.
Vince Young? The Titans were almost unbeatable this season BECAUSE of his injury.
I love it when the author settles disputes like that.
From re-reading HNI in anticipation of the anime, I stumbled across chapter 148. Its the chapter when everyone sings "Champion" in the karaoke lounge after the Suzuki-Volg match.
I googled it and...
Its football. Its not as if some evil mad scientist will conquer the world using evil genetically enhanced football players.
CT chars aren't that strong until you get their level up cards. For example, Nitta at lv 4 is S5 K3 D3. But Nitta at lv5 is S6 K4 D4. And that's pretty decent for a starting striker.
QB: Karin, Kid, Hiruma
HB: Agon, Sena, Riku
FB: Yamato, Akaba
TE(Switchable with FB): Taki
WR: Tetsuma, Monta, Sakuraba, Sano (See c.289)
LB: Shin, Kakei, 3 others, Possibly Marco
I think that's precisely why Takahashi described the snake mark as "....on the verge of a foul". Meaning its almost a foul. just almost. And maybe he's worked out the timing to let go precisely...
Well...Maybe. CT has been running for 25 years now. His original fan base includes Del Piero & Zidane. Both of them are about 40 now.
Switching to Young Jump might've been a smart move. His...
I think he lost once in volume 5.
Meh. I can't tell the difference anyway. As long as its in English, its fine by me.
In the panel with Ishizaki & Urabe, we have a small cameo from Masashi Nakayama. Frankly, I'm impressed that Shinji managed to notice such a tiny detail and translated it accordingly.
They just appeared shortly after Kimura & Aoki lost. In chapter 819, to be specific.
It's not arrogant of Tsubasa. He doesn't mind being placed out of position if it's for the team's collective good. But he still prefers to play in his favourite position. I mean. Who wouldn't?
No, more like
Schester: If we can't score against Wakabayashi from outside the penalty box..(dramatic pause).., we'll have to score from inside the penalty box.
I think he wants us to discuss about Yoichi Takahashi mastering the art of making obvious statements seem epic.
RL example. England with Gerrard & Lampard. Its been years and not even Capello can figure out how to make these guys work together effectively. Sometimes, two stars can slow each other down.
I laughed when Schester said
"If we can't score from outside the penalty box, we'll just have to score from inside the penalty box"
I love it when characters state the obvious as if it was a...
When CT was at its peak readership, there were a lot of Hyuga-Wakashimazu yaoi fangirls. There were even several yaoi doujin pieces.
Sanae has a brother? I think he's more of a lackey or a minion.
You know you read too much Captain Tsubasa when you try a twin shot in rl.
Wow. It's now over. Half the length of the original series. Thanks to Shinji for finishing this.
Right, after he finishes everything. :D
Wow. Thursday and 70 pages already. Shinji's going to try finishing it in 2 weeks, isn't he?
I predict that
Tsubasa will score a goal and he's going to say "It's all thanks to team effort"
The Soccer King will come and Tsubasa will defeat him
Japan wins the championship
Tornado Arrow Skywing shoot? Why doesn't Santana add that Levin rotation and make it the Levin Tornado Arrow Skywing shoot, just for the extra awesomeness.
And its great seeing two great keepers...
Methinks the explosion will double the comedic effect.
You know a franchise or series is old when fans can start nitpicking at plot holes made in prequels. :)
Let's call it "two shots" now.
The only other teams left are Germany & Holland. And he does not look European to me. The soccer osama guy is most likely Brazil's secret weapon.
Have a nice vacation.
Yeah, it was awesome the way he made that twin shot all by himself. I dunno. Probably too awesome and it warranted killing off his match
And the epic defense of Sweden once more. Sky Wing shoot huh? I read in wikipedia that Oozora Tsubasa literally means big sky wings. Quite a fitting name. Even if it is a copy of the Raiju shot.
Rule of thumb. New bosses are judged according to how badly they trounce the old bosses. Brazil is going to cream Uruguay.
Underspin digs holes in the football field.
You mean like a new sequel to Golden 23? Cause that'll be awesome.
When you see a guy getting knocked down brutally, you'll be shocked and awed enough not to move. Plus, Akai was at point blank range. So Jito couldn't go between the two even if he tried.
After fingering them, I can predict that Levin is so pissed off that he's going to aim the Levin shot at both of them more than ever.
Along with the "Levin zone",(p34-35)
Its a sure goal if Levin gets near the penalty area. That's why we're calling this shooting area the "Levin zone".
That description was too cool. Until...
So Brolin stops the Raiju shot with his abs of steel. He was probably training with a bowling ball, cleverly disguised as a medicine ball.
Wakabayashi is now the Boxing Keeper.
Akai declaring a...
I know that Japan will be world champions :).
Gaakk...He's right. Come up with a prediction...come up with a prediction.
Right. Akai will be facing off with Levin, since he replaced Matsuyama. And that both guys look alike, just like...
I love the smell of bogus in the morning.
Much as Tsubasa's shots can penetrate nets, there has been no case of any of Tsubasa's shots destroying stone statues so I think not.
Tsubasa's aura dispels evil energy. He would've made a great exorcist.
Its cross promotion. An influential artist can boost the sales of two franchises. Like Frank Miller when he shifted from Daredevil to Batman. His original fans will still buy Marvel comics. Now,...
