For some reason, I didn't mind the recap parts this week as much as I did last week. Maybe I just enjoyed the rest of the episode enough to make up for it. I thought they got across Tsubaki's feelings well at the very end there, after Murakoshi spoke with him.

haha.. been eaten alive by World Cup.. but still not missing any action from ETU from the last 2 episodes

So finally the match is over and ETU got their first win. TBH, I dont have any problem with the pacing .. Its justified by the story looking through Tsubaki's POV.

Too bad Giant Killing won't get the same amount of episodes like captain Tsubasa.
Maybe the recent success of the Japanese team in the Worldcup (especially if they reach the quarter finals by beating Uruguay today) will keep "the illusion alive" that GK gets a longer lun/faithful adaptation.
If i recall correctly, it seems the manga does quite well in Japan.

As a Brazilian, I'm surprised of how well they handled the Brazilian Portuguese in this anime. However, I wish the VAs had better acting skills. They sounded very flat.

Same with every language, it seems to me (certainly the English, at least): I am delighted that they are actually going for native speakers -- even if they don't go so far as to get real actors.

By the way, I felt terrible for the guy who missed the penalty for Japan against Paraguay yesterday. The sides were more or less evenly matched, with the Japanese having more crispness and organization, and the Paraguayans a bit more invention, it seemed to me. Too bad the game was so negative. Maybe Japan's problem is a lack of players who can finish -- except from set plays.

No matter who went through, though, Spain was going to crush them. Portugal had excellent defense and good attack, and Spain still was clearly the better side. Or that's how it all looked to me, a North American who doesn't know football that well. Spain-Brazil-Germany-Netherlands-Argentina: some great teams still left in the tournament, each with their own style.

So, has no one watched the new episode? Maybe with the World Cup and the newest batch of summer anime, this got pushed back on everyone's schedule, I know it is in mine.

Spoiler for EP 14:


Oh, and one more thing. The manga hasn't got to the point where ETU faces off against Nagoya, but they already has the Yuri focus beforehand. Below spoilers are some differences between them:

Yeah, pushed back a bit for me, too.
Spoiler for ep14:
Fascinating matches coming up tomorrow and Wednesday: will Germany miss Muller? Will they be able to exploit the Spanish back-end as well as they did England and Argentina? Will the Dutch positional play and Arjen Robben overwhelm Uruguay? Robben must be a terrible guy to have to play against: fast, smart, seems a bit nasty, and a consummate diver.

Why does this series get so little post traffic? Well, screw them - I'm blogging it anyway. I know it's a soccer anime and that's not exactly a hot ticket in the otaku community, but like all good sports series this one is just as much about the people as the game. Good shows about professional sports, especially, are hard to find - and I love how GK really examines the fandom side of professional sports. The love of a sports team is a huge factor uniting communities in many countries - and the shared pain when they suck almost as much so.

I think GK is unique as the perspective is not on a particular character, but on the whole team itself.. thats why in this latest episode we have a focus on the fans (well, Yuri is a fan herself with the privilege of working for the team)

For manga reader, how far is the manga itself? How about the pace of it.. For me, the current pacing are acceptable and I'm enjoying it, but I can see that some peoples prefers a faster pacing..

Hmm, the manga hasn't been updated (translated) for almost three months now, they have only reached the part where they finish the match against Tokyo Victory and it took 21 chapters for that. Seeing as how complaints about the slow pace only started in the ETU vs Nagoya match, I can't really compare it yet. So far the pacing seems fine though.

Given that I'm the kind of gamer who prefers FM to Winning Eleven (FM addiction sufferer here), Giant Killing is godsend. A football show about a manager and the team he's making instead of the Totally Ace Young Genius Striker? By the gods! It's like animated FM!

Yet even my default adoration for the show is withstanding heavy pressure with the recent issues. It's not really all that slow, I think the pacing of the show itself is just fine -- though I always want more at the end of every episode. It's just...the flashbacks give me flashbacks to Inuyasha flashbacks.

That's exactly why I dropped those shows so early in their run. =_=

Heh, after peoples complaining about the extended match arc last time, we got 1 full episode devoided of any action last week, and 1 tiny snippet of action this week. Served you guys right for complaining!

Anyway, was waiting for the subs to surface before commenting, and besides, spend a lot of time sleeping to make do for the World Cup ...

Now, where was I, ah yes, the episode ..

Spoiler:


Anyway, can anyone who familiar with Japan's football scene explained the cup format there.. At first I thought its sudden death (similar's to England's FA Cup - you lose, you out), but Yuri's comment in this episode kinda made me go
