This man is Tatsuya Fukuda, the coach of the high school youth team of a top J-League team, “Tokyo City Esperion FC”. After sensing immense potential in Ashito’s still unrefined skills, he describes his ambition. “I want to build a team and use it to conquer the world. Our club will not be a milestone for players who conquer the world. Our club will be the world. And for that to happen, I’m going to need “ace” to practice.” After hearing Fukuda’s offer, Ashito decides to go to Tokyo and try out for his team ── Aoashi is considered the vanguard of football manga, and now he’s finally getting a TV anime adaptation ! Loss, growth and friendship: it’s all about youth!
