    It is better to watch this show while forgetting literally anything about football. This seems to be a different sport altogether.
    Just start thinking about why a 11-12 year old like Hyuga looks THAT buff and apparently is working part time. Combine that with a referee who apparently never heard of the term "foul" or "violent conduct" before. Last but not least a referee who is blowing the final whistle DURING a shot on target. What?

    Nevertheless I felt entertained. I know the result already but... Hooray Hooray Nankatsu!

    I had said this too during the first match.The referees are idiots.Hyuga should receive red cards.Anyway the golden combo goal of Misaki and Tsubasa was awesome.

    Wakabayashi is too OP. Even injured he stops everything :XD.

    These new tracks have been very effective. The match should end in the next episode.

    • Scares his kouhai with a death glare.
    • Beats Kojiro in pure strength.

    :lmao. I definitely didn't remember that. Good episode. I hope they will change the OP now.

    I love how they are actually using "recent" german goalkeepers here.
    Totally breaks the Manga itself though as the best one (ter Stegen) plays for the FC Barcelona and Tsubasa will play for them. Doesn't that go against Wakabayashis reasoning completely?

    As a german I disagree.
    Though even if ter Stegen is "just" the number two, it would still be kinda weird.
    Not as weird though as the Anime happily turning Brazil into a Mekka of football. Might have been true in the past but their league simply doesn't matter nowadays.

    Damn, that was good. The new OP took me by surprise but it's not bad. I am glad they kept Moete Hero as ED. The visuals in both are impressive.

    Yuko is doing a veery good job with teenager Tsubasa. Very exciting episode.
    --- Double Post Merged, Oct 24, 2018, Original Post Date: Oct 20, 2018 ---
    Of course that greenhorn wasn't going to surpass Tsubasa, who is becoming too good to stay in Japan. Saying that other aces like Hyuga and Misugi can't rival him though? That's too much.

    Decent episode.

    In this remake Tsubasa seems even more OP than in my memories.

    These moments with Sanae were hilarious :lmao.

    Sorry but I just can't stop.
    How amazingly bad is Nankatsu as a team? Tsubasa - the defending midfielder - is sprinting toward the goal and his strikers just don't follow...? What? How does this even happen?
    Then he magically ridicules 4 defending players and yet they are still fast enough to catch up somehow? What?
    Morisaki? How about you move for once?

    Seriously what is Nankatsus tactic here?

    Those red shirts look amazingly cool though. And Sanae is moe.

    This ED will have different versions too :o. Everyone wants Tsubasa's head :XD.

    I had frankly no memories of a match between Toho and Musashi.

    I love the reactions when a goalkeeper catches a ball. The other players look and react as if that was an impossible feat.
    Granted, Morisaki is a reason as to way Nankatsu players should act surprised.

    That Misugi goal though... Holy shit...

    I chuckled when Wakashimazu said that only Misugi can score against him :amuse. It's very clear that Hyuga is not as combative as before.

    Referee: "Hm. the kid with the heart disease suddenly collapsed and isn't moving anymore. Well. Whatever."

    I love how everyone turns into slowmotion apart from the goalkeeper.

    Goals from two defenders! Good job Takasugi :clap. Soda wasn't that good in my memories.

    I just have to ask one more time. Did the Mangaka ever watch a football game in his entire life before he wrote this?

    This is the first episode where literally nothing made any shred of sense. A ball losing all speed in midair which then suddenly came crashing down isn't even the worst part of it.

    Players are literally able to teleport all over the field and yet Morisaki is still the most worthless goalkeeper I have ever seen.

    Are you sure it's mangaka's fault or the anime directors?

    No need for control when you can shoot like Hyuga :D.

    Tsubasa is incredible, running like that with Sanae behind him. He can't understand anything that isn't related to football :XD.
