As the thread is not up yet... and I really feel like commenting on the chapter, I'll just start with it.
I LOVED the play Tsubasa showed in this chapter. It was just amazing, like how he got past Ivangel and how surprised he was, so he couldn't even react. And the play with Blueno! It seems he just fooled the whole defense of Real Madrid. I feel like a goal is coming to us^^.
But, well, Natureza is there, too... but I predict Rivaul will score at least one goal... and one in the next chapter. If he does'nt score, Natureza will score again :x
My impression from the chapter was: Move -> counter -> counter of the counter -> ... -> Tsubasa, Rivaul and Kluivert* OWN!
Nevertheless, while doing that the Real defense was shown to have great awareness and skill which is quite good to see instead of Tsubasa and Rivaul just doing a few return passes and scoring. They will probably equalize in the next chapter, but I expect either a Naturezza devoted to marking Tsubasa or a Real obsessed with attacking. Either way, I believe Real should stop Barcelona's team movements somehow, only for Tsubasa to shine in the end

a really good play by barca.
nothing else to say on the subject.
I mostly liked how Luikal was included in the attack, this way Rivaul and Tsubasa aren't doing everything. Good to know that R madrid wasn't going to be fooled by a passwork they saw just once.
Also, Final Countdown is released.
Liked Final Countdown a lot for a number of reasons:
- Japan faced a very strong side and were seemingly outclassed most of the time
- Cruyfford was finally showed in play. His goal was great!
- Hyuga score Japan's goal and not Tsubasa
- Every Japanese player on the pitch was given a bit of the spotlight. Yay Nitta!
Oh, a little one or two feint is possible. But this one is totally over-the-board.
Pg 15: 1st feint --> this is fine (leg switching)
Pg 16: 2nd feint--> this is also fine coz its possible (in terms of not kicking the ball yet)
Pg 17-18: how on earth the pivot leg able to be in stable mode after the other foot has swung infront and then to the back (in that kind of degree). And he still look stable to pass back. If he body was straight, then okay, but he's in shooting mode (body movement).
Not yet reading FC as still downloading at this moment.
A bit off-topic, I don't know if Naturezza was supposed to be modeled after Ronaldinho (I doubt it since the first time he was introduced, Ronaldinho still wasn't a senior national player I believe), but I've found a guy that has the skills coming closest to Natu's own, at least in my view. Check this guy out! Quite possibly the best ball control I've ever seen and if this isn't enough to convince you, try looking for other clips of him on youtube. Simply brilliant!
Oo...english version of final countdown! CT versions of names are riduclous to translate!
As for Final Countdown, I was a bit disppointed that the "spotlight" on each japanese player was just a sentence from the speaker... Moreover, Akai playing isn't a common occurence, that was the chance and we didn't see anything. As I've stated in the release notes, Takahashi obviously stated he was overworked and late with this work... Although it gave kind of a "genkidama-esque" feeling for this action. Cruyfford on the other hand, was really cool. Hope to see him again... Although I have doubts.
I see my previous prediction proved to be a bit off. I thought that Real would make it 5-4 and the Rivaul would injure himself scoring the equalizer for Tsubasa to win it 6-5 in extra time. However, seeing Rivaul getting harmed at this point, I think it may actually end 5-4 with Real's attacks ineffective from now on, only for Tsubasa to score just before the game ends, either with the help of Rivaul, so as not to make him seem better than Naturezza or after winning a direct clash with Natu to show us that he is still godlike.
That again, Rivaul looks fit to continue, so the game may yet end 6-5 (I'm beginning to consider 6-6 possible as well) with him sacrificing himself for either the 5th or final goal and when asked why he did it he would reply "Because Barca now has two equally gifted game-makers and my spot will be taken by Tsubasa"
Well, if you predict every game development possibilities, you're bound to have at least one of them right
Don't worry, you will see him again - only like one page in another one shot lmfao...too bad Ishizaki wasnt in the Final Countdown...I'll always remember him as the guy who scored own goals lol.Quote:
Also, Ronaldinho started on Futsal too.
