This year's 43rd issue of Kodansha's Weekly Shōnen Magazine is announcing on Wednesday that an anime adaptation of Hiroaki Igano and Kaya Tsukiyama's The Knight in the Area (Area no Kishi) soccer manga has been green-lit.

The story 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.

The manga launched in Weekly Shōnen Magazine in 2006, and the 27th compiled book volume is shipping this month. 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.
