(Serialized by Weekly Shonen Magazine. Currently scantalated by Matanuki Scans)
Being a 2010s manga reader (reading manga digitally and not having the guts to read One Piece) is not even a factor at why this becomes one of the manga that I prioritize reading in manga sites every week. Despite the fact that.
i. For a sports manga, it is utterly overshadowed by everything else (by Hinomaru Zumou, Welcome to the Ballroom and Shokugeki no Soma before the writer squandered it after Azami came).
ii. By scantalation standards, it is very late for a 2010s manga. Right now, it is at least 2 years behind the current chapter (which is as of this writing, around Chapter 210), and for the Chinese scans (which I read ACMA Game & Real Account with), it somehow stopped at 11 chapters.
iii. I don’t even like soccer.
Still, this is one of the manga that I am willing to read again, and I think that it is something that I would like to share.
P.S: Speaking of Ballroom, I am not impressed with the anime adaptation of Ballroom especially after Episode 9 come out, I want to see an uninterrupted choreograph for a minute, not a monologue fest that spans for 20 minutes (I could just read it from the manga) and a changing ED that people could hardly care about on YouTube.
Spoilers Abound as I mention things that interest me on the fly.
