awesome but "unrealistic"

well, please dont get me wrong . . this manga's really great, it will surely get you hooked up even if you dont know soccer that much. . the plays were realistic, it has no"powerful" attacks like in KnB that's waaay too unrealistic.

But i droped it off when i reached c.104 . . why? this is where it got unrealistic. . unrealistic in terms of the main's way of thinking. it'll just hit you, "oh what a dumb" . . why again? (can't spoil XP)

the art was 4/10 for me at first, but will get decent after a few chapters, so no worries.

but
overall, it's still a good read . . quite around 8/10 smile . .


maybe i'll think of continuing it sooN after how many years (+﹏+)~. .

I don't know if it's because I'm brazilian, but I think this manga is fked up...

Firstly I think that something that seem like "Major", minus baseball, plus soccer, is so dumb. Secondly, why didn't he just gone to italy? Friendship and all this crap, it's what makes a shounen, I know that, but I think the autor could have though of a better reason behind all this.

I read untill volume 4, and I can't stand to continue reading this piece of garbage, and I know that this manga will run out of ideas, because the start wasn't that good for me.

A very good sports manga and one of my all-time favorites

Fantasista is great sports manga with a high-paced, intense storyline and lots of humour to keep the reader hooked. It starts out a bit slow, but picks up very quickly after the first few chapters. In general, the manga focuses not only on Teppei's growth in soccer, but also the relationships he forges with the people he meets and his desire to prove to the world that his sister is the best coach. These aspects, in my opinion, make the manga much more three dimensional and enjoyable. The characters--though not outstanding--are fine in terms of the roles they play in the manga.
While Fantasista appears to be just another typical soccer manga, it goes deep enough in its explanations of various techniques to make it realistic, but not overwhelmingly so that it gets boring.
Anyways, to sum it up, I highly HIGHLY recommend this.

Story was good at the beginning, but it seems like the author lost any creativity past vol 14 or 15, and just keep repeating the same thing over and over.

For example, MC continuously to "ping-pong" his "power level". He would be bad and useless all the sudden, and just to gain them back in that volume without any logical explanation. Instead of actually talking about soccer and its strategy/strength, it became a work to stir up forced emotional feelings by using the "character power-up" pattern over and over.

It was a couple volumes before the ending anyway, everything else was good prior to that. Seems like the author simply tried to drag on the story for as long as possible for the sake of having more volumes, and thats a big minus for me. (And it has a very unsatisfying ending to boot)

Best soccer manga out there!

I have been playing soccer my whole life and i can say from experience that this manga is not unrealistic, actually it is more realistic than most soccer manga out there. I love the fact that Teppei is already a skilled player that needs to learn the team dynamics of football and the tactics of the game which reflects the current state of most young players in the game today with the potential of playing professionally. Most underdog manga have an impossibility to them that is not overcome easily in real life, if ever. And although i love manga like whistle i feel that this particular manga surpasses the rest in the skills displayed, and mentality of football carried out in the manga. Teppei reminds me of a Cristiano Ronaldo or Zidane by the way he excites the crowd. Reading this manga makes me as excited as watching a real game and thats all you can wish for from a great piece of art.

better than whistle

I actually like this type of manga compared to whistle, underdog mangas are good and all but they are a dime a dozen. Taking an already good player and mix in good storytelling progression is much more interesing and can be harder to do than your underdog manga.

The story starts off with the main character already skilled and talented. Out of nowhere, he joins a game and scores a goal for the team. It's all too sudden, poorly developed, and lacks suspense. The manga itself doesn't have a lot of technical details explaining certain moves or skills so readers only have a very superficial impression of how good the players are. It's unrealistic and kinda dumb. I don't know. I guess this is just not my cup of tea. I prefer it when the main guy's the underdog, and has to work his way up with hardwork and training that we can see. If you like soccer manga, I recommend reading "Whistle!" instead.

ive read to vl4 and I like how the author portray the skills and techniques of soccer. its not like captain tsubasa where the character during the games r clay men looking and the length of the game doesnt drag for 10 chapters like other sports manga. Its hilarious reading Teppei as he plays and learn the game. hope the group scanlating this doesnt drop it.

Well, it seems to be just another soccer manga, and probably it's, but there are some particular things about it. First, the main character is talented and has the skills but he acquired those skills through practicing alone and following his sister's training plan. While we can see that Teppei is certainly the main character, his sister does hold some wheight in the manga as a character. So it can be viewed as player/trainer focused, at least from my point of view. Of course it's a manga and isn't as technically detailed as some other soccer manga, but it's somehow refreshing to read since it's focused in the creative aspect of the game.
