Shogakukan Asia Licenses Aoashi Soccer Manga

posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
1st volume launched in November

Shogakukan Asia licensed and released the first volume of Yūgo Kobayashi's Aoashi manga last month in November. It describes the manga:

Ashito Aoi is a young, aspiring soccer player from a backwater town in Japan. His hopes of getting into a high school with a good soccer club are dashed when he causes an incident during a critical match for his team, which results in their loss and elimination from the tournament. Nevertheless, he catches the eye of someone important who happened to be visiting from Tokyo. How will things turn out for Ashito?

Kobayashi launched the manga in Weekly Big Comic Spirits in January 2015. Shogakukan published the 22nd compiled volume on October 30. The manga is based on an original story concept by Naohiko Ueno. The manga was nominated for the 10th Manga Taisho awards in 2017.
