Animax Asia to Air Inazuma Eleven: Ares Anime Starting on June 15
posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Animax Asia revealed at its booth at the Pinoy Otaku Festival convention in Metro Manila on Saturday that it will air the Inazuma Eleven: Ares (Inazuma Eleven: Ares no Tenbin) anime on June 15 at 3:00 p.m. GMT +8 with two episodes. The channel will then air subsequent episodes with two episodes every Friday at 8:00 p.m.
The anime premiered on April 6, and the ninth episode aired in Japan on June 1.
An upcoming PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, iOS, and Android game, which is tied to the anime, will launch this summer.
In the story of both the anime and the game, protagonist Asuto Inamori's soccer club is disbanded after the school's soccer field is destroyed. He and friends go to Tokyo to attend Raimon-chuu (Raimon Junior High) to play soccer. The story is set after the first Inazuma Eleven anime and game. However, the show takes place in a parallel world from all other Inazuma Eleven soccer role-playing games (apart from the first), because the story has taken a different course.
Shogakukan is running three new manga simultaneously for the Inazuma Eleven: Ares no Tenbin franchise on three different platforms: the Coro Coro Comics magazine, the Sunday Webry website, and the MangaOne app. Each manga focuses on different characters.
