Captain Tsubasa J


For the background on the Captain Tsubasa story, refer to the TV series review. Captain Tsubasa J features the adventures of the now-grown Tsubasa and Company.


Captain Tsubasa J is simply the grown-up continuation of the original series, but now the Japanese team has been picked out, and the rivals are now partners. All the favorites from all the school teams have been chosen! Yay! Now, they have a new uniform, and they're in Europe.

Mostly, it's pretty much just more of what we liked about Captain Tsubasa. The ending, however, may be a cop-out to some, but it's original.

Same as the first TV series. — Eric Gaede

Recommended Audience: Again, little objectionable content to speak of - these aren't soccer fans we're dealing with!
