The Knight in the Area Soccer TV Anime to End Next Week

posted on by Egan Loo
Anime based on Hiroaki Igano, Kaya Tsukiyama's manga premiered in January

TV Asahi confirmed on Saturday that The Knight in the Area (Area no Kishi) soccer television anime series will end next Saturday, September 29 with episode 37 "Kickoff!!" The following is the next-episode preview for the finale:

Hiroaki Igano and Kaya Tsukiyama's original manga centers around Kakeru Aizawa, the younger brother of the Kamakura School soccer team captain Suguru. While Suguru is so talented in soccer that he has been made part of Japan's national under-15 team, Kakeru is so weak at the sport that he is nicknamed "Mr. No Goal." Kakeru's life changes however, after a tragic accident. (Igano is another name for Tadashi Agi, the story creator of Drops of God, Getbackers, Kindaichi Case Files, Bloody Monday, and several other popular manga titles.)

The anime premiered in Japan on January 7, and Crunchyroll has been streaming the anime into several countries as it airs in Japan.

Update: Typo fixed. Thanks, vashthekaizoku.
