Failure has a new name: the "never-winning" Kickers. Having lost every match and scored zero goals, the downtrodden soccer team can’t find a single team to play against them. With low spirits, the Kickers are on the verge of breaking up – that is, until the high-spirited and energetic Daichi joins the team! Determined and filled with hope, Daichi organizes a match against the Devils – the strongest team around – in an attempt to revitalize the Kickers and stop the breakup; and thus, the Kickers take their first steps towards a better future. For their friends, for love, for joy, and for the ball!
It's a story about a boy freshly moved to a new town, he loves plying soccer and he finds a team the "never-winning" Kickers. When he joint the team they really where about to solve the team and then he showed up :) And then many epizodes further...
This story is very similar to Captain Tsubasa. I the beginning we have a boy with a dream... a soccer dream. Then we begin to know more about other characters from the teams but in frond of this is always our hero :) who always loves to play ball :D The hero always works hard to be the best player :)
When you watched Captain Tsubasa :) and you loved it :D then you must simply watch Ganbare! Kickers.
I reall recommend this anime ^.^
Probably one of the first anime series i ever watched,i would recommend this for younger audience who are football fans (yes it's FOOTBALL not soccer).
Kyousuke Kano aspires to become a professional soccer player but decides to quit after endless comparisons to his brother, who is a famous midfielder in AC Milan. However, things change when Kyousuke meets a girl who forces him to coach his school's women's soccer team; and soon thereafter, he rediscovers his love for the sport and decides to pick up the cleats once more. With Kyousuke's passion for the game, he aims to lead his team to the national tournament and win the hearts of many.
Did i hear a goal? Yes i did and if you only watched one of these animes, Hungry Heart or Captain Tsubasa than you are missing out on the funalicious soccer matches. Loads of kicking of balls and a great story plot to boot! Most of the things involves around soccer in these 2 animes so watch em both if you are a fan of soccer!
You love soccer ? Then you can... or mayby you should watch one of this both anime series :) They are simply about soccer, the main characters love soccer and are fighting to be the best players. To stand in front of strong foes it's all about it and having fun doing it :D
Both anime are about aspiration and hard work, about "above average" skills, that the main characters have :) You can see friedship, joy and sorrow when the both teams are trying their best to achieve theire goals. You can feel the ambition from Tsubasa and Kyosuke and that's so interesting :)
When you watch both anime series you'll see that they are not the same in some aspects like in Hungry Heart you'll have more funny scenes and more "school live" elements. And of course both main characters have different personalitys, they aren't similar at all xD
Have fun wathing them :) it's worth it but a say it.. the both series are for soccer fans, there are other aspects in that you could enjoy, but mainly they are about soccer fights, fighting with more stronger enemies and so on.
Raimon Middle School's soccer club is led by the boisterous and determined Mamoru Endou. Armed with his grandfather’s notebook on special training and a fierce spirit, Mamoru desires to lead the team to victory, but there’s just one problem: the team is weak, unskilled, and disheartened. However, when several new members come on board, including soccer star Shuuya Gouenji from Kidokawa Seishuu Middle School, things begin to look up for the team. With ruthless opponents to defeat, special moves to acquire and the Soccer Frontier tournament to win, Mamoru and the gang will kick and block their way to victory!
I doubt there's anything more similar, Captain Tsubasa and Inazuma Eleven are both about a group of young football players and that's pretty much it. Everything is packed with overpowered techniques, and oh boy, Inazuma Eleven takes it to a hole another level.
Another nice anime based upon a soccer freak and the spirit of the game. Very nice animation,must watch for soccer lovers.
Ren Mihashi is a timid pitcher with problems; he has no self esteem or confidence, due to the relentless bullying of his once teammates, and is reluctant to play baseball again. However, at Ren's new school, Nishiura Prefectural High, he finds himself picking up the mitt once more. Along with the help of alumni-turned-coach Maria Momoe, tough but supportive Yuuto Sakaeguchi, and the rest of his teammates, Ren will regain his confidence and show the game of baseball who's the boss yet again!
Though there are a lot of sports anime out there, Captain Tsubasa and Ookiku seem to fit especially well together. Ren in Ookiku is far more obnoxious than most characters ever, but in general the tone of both is similar: a group must rise against all odds to win their goals. Many episodes focus solely on team building and discussion of moves and such. If you liked one, try out the other.
