Crunchyroll is currently streaming the anime as it streams in Japan. He describes the series as follows:
“I will take you into the world.” Ashito Aoi is a middle schooler who lives in Ehime and the ace of an unremarkable soccer club. On the day they lost the last middle school tournament, Ashito runs along the ocean in frustration, only to come across a man watching his match. This man is Tatsuya Fukuda, the coach of the high school youth team of a top J-League team, “Tokyo City Esperion FC”.
After sensing immense potential in Ashito’s still unrefined skills, he describes his ambition. “I want to build a team and use it to take on the world. Our club is not going to be a milestone for players taking on the world. Our club is going to be the world. And for that to happen I’m going to need some “aces” to train me in. After hearing Fukuda’s offer, Ashito decides to go to Tokyo and try out his team.
