It's very nice to see Hyuga Kojirou again. And I liked very much the new Gozza guy.
Am I the only one or you also think that Yoichi-Sensei's drawings are getting worse. ( i.e. Aoi Shingo, I really miss WY)
F.C.R.B. match was good also. As usual TsubasaTachi has white uniform while KojiroTachi has black.
As a conclusion, I really enjoyed Road to 2002 and the specials so far.
Thanks everyone who gives us opporunity to read all these perfect CT Mangas.

I found that the characters were too thin with overexagerated long legs in World Youth.
The drawings in Road to 2002 also has more details, so no, I prefer Road to 2002's drawings.
Is it just me or you think that Takahachi is too evil with Hyuga? I found 3x1 almost nothing near Tsubasa in Barca B (por example)... I know the team is a lot worse, but Tsubasa is too much godlike... I mean, a lot much. He was much better before, but now it's stupid. So damn good, argh
About Kojiro, I think Kojiro is still thinking too much of himself, even though the match happens in his dream and all. When's the last time Kojiro has led and organized a team around him? And plus, his captainship was never really impressive. His leadership basically was yelling "Guys, let's try hard and win!" While that could help the team spirit, it wasn't constructive enough. I haven't seen Huyga really organizing his team members, or giving specific and useful comments to teammates.
"This time"? When did you lose me before?
Ecker: That's when you know that Takahashi makes his sub-characters so charismatic: when readers whishes they were as good or better than a main character
I think that's in fact pretty much well done by Takahashi. He's keeping a logic, you have to consider all the factors.
Tsubasa is a game maker. The game maker pretty much controls everything in the game, he's the one who sets the pace, who's giving goal scoring opportunities, as well as scores himself, and pull up the level of his team mates. Also, soccer in Spain is pretty much offense-minded. Then Tsubasa has many years of experience in the Brazilian pro league (probably 3 or 4 years).
The forward however, is the one who scores when he is given the chance. If the Game maker isn't that good, if the team doesn't set the pace, then the forward can only score as much. And in Italy, the mindset is the Catenaccio, in other words, pretty much defense minded, that's why Hyuga came here in the first place, it's hard to score. Then... This is actually the first year that Hyuga is in professional soccer.
Though, it's true that Tsubasa is overall better than Hyuga, he always was. However, on his path to become the best player in the World, I don't think that Tsubasa was really god like in Road to 2002.
CT1 to 5 are missing Rivaul, Natureza, Cruyfford, Gentile, Radunga, Pepe, Aoi, Akai, Hino, Sho and Levin. The "Santana Carlos" in the game is different than the "Carlos Santana" in the manga.
The different CTJ are missing Rivaul, Natureza, Cruyfford, Radunga, Pepe, Akai, Sho and Levin.
CT on PS2 is missing all the World Youth and Road to 2002 characters.
The other games don't allow for an All-star game where you chose your characters and the computers'.
Finally, some players are pretty much different in abilities than their manga counterpart.
Diaz is in no way comparable to Rivaul, and Coimbra not really like Natureza (actually, Coimbra isn't in CT5).
Well, when you dream, you give yourself a nice or better role than usual. I mean, what kind of dream would that be if Hyuga lost his balance against the defenders, failed to score, then was substituted?
Never, that's why i'm asking if I managed this time
Scoring against Genzo makes it really a DREAM for Hyuga
So is the FCRB a new club in Japan or what?
FC Real Bristol is an imaginary soccer team for a clothing brand. You can search on the net, I already gave some details in the fans' newsletter.
I know, Tsubasa is better than Hyuga, that's ok and I agree... But it look like it's too much.
He's the game maker, yeah... And Barca is a better team, but godda** sh**! The players beside Gozza on Reggiana must be TOO BAD. I mean, Hyuga depends on the mid field and the marking is very hard, but they are not in Serie B. They are in serie C1! It's so low, that a guy like him (Who is better as a foward than Tsubasa could be if he tried), could score a lot more. For him, Serie C players are very bad! No surprise he won against then on ballance (He's still bad at it). That's why I say... He could pass then on his on, coming from the midfield. Where talking about the Moko, the man that learn the Raijuu Shot alone.
And even if it looks ok because his team is really bad, and his position doesn't affect the others play, look at Albese. Shingo could do the game make, even if he's not so good at it. Making combi play with Bobang, they could make it an ownage. Serie C is so... bad. If it was for B, it would be understandable. But C? Akai is in Serie B, isn't him?
I mean, Hyuga didn't evolve to the level that Genzo had when he became Pro in Hamburg? I think he is better at least at this level. Hyuga makes part of the 4 main players in japan.
Tsubasa could also be very well the forward of a first team, it's just that it's a waste of his talents.
The man who learnt the Raiju Shoot on his own is good at shooting. Not at game making, dribbling or feinting.
-Wakabayashi evolved at pro level overseas for more than 5 years, Hyuga evolved at school level for more than 5 years.
Yes, Hyuga is one of the best player in japan, because his shooting abilities with his right leg is at an international level, that's all.
So yeah, I think you're overestimating Hyuga way too much, though I have no doubts that he will make some progress.
Well said, Shinji. I'm really impressed with your knowledge of the CT world and your analytical skills.
I agree Angel, I love reading these encyclopaedia-style posts from Shinji-sama
Glad to know you like them, misses
I sometime worry being boring >_>
Encyclopaedia, that's funny, because that's exactly what I'm trying to do. I guess that's why I sound like that.
Don't worry about being boring, Shinji.
As you've already heard, people like your analysis and I do, too. You really got a lot of knowledge about CT to share, and we are glad to receive
My memory is kind of blurry, but in the last page of Golden Dream 1st half, is it Misaki's sister beside him or a random fangirl?
I'm looking forward to seeing the match
