Kazuya Ichikawa (Monster Strike the Animation, Tantei Team KZ Jiken Note) is directing the anime at Studio Hibari, with scripts supervised and written by Midori Gotou (Hozuki's Coolheadedness, The Empire of Corpses). Arisa Matsuura is designing the characters. Pony Canyon is credited for music production, and TMS Entertainment is credited for production.
The anime will premiere this summer.
Sakamoto published the manga in Shueisha's Miracle Jump magazine in 2014, and then resumed the series in Weekly Young Jump in 2015. Shueisha published the manga's seventh compiled book volume on February 17.
The manga centers on a handsome young soccer genius named Aoyama who is on Japan's team for players under 16 years old. His play style is "cleanliness." He doesn't tackle and doesn't head the ball. If he's doing a throw-in, he'll only do it if he's wearing gloves.
