The February issue of Shogakukan's Monthly CoroCoro Comic magazine is confirming next Saturday that the Inazuma Eleven soccer anime series will continue airing past March in a new timeslot. Starting on March 2, the anime will move to Wednesdays at 7:00 p.m. (Another game-based anime, Danball Senki, will follow at 7:27 p.m. — which is roughly Inazuma Eleven's old timeslot.) Mainichi Kaasan currently holds the 7:00 p.m. timeslot.
Level-5, the developer of the original Inazuma Eleven soccer role-playing game, had announced last February that the anime would continue until at least March of this year. The anime had premiered in October of 2008. The Inazuma Eleven: Saikyō Gundan Ogre Shūrai movie opened in Japan on December 23.
