  • I'm desperate to see how this story unfolds!

    I don't even know what to say! Because I'm too busy laughing! LOL! What an unexpected twist at the end! I did not see that coming and it was SO well played by Arakawa! Well done! This is my first time reading an actual sports manga straight through and I LOVED it! What an epic and thrilling experience! It brought me back to the days I played soccer and made me so happy to see soccer come to life on page. I especially loved the short Mia Hamm reference! Super cool! While this story is packed full of action (and was my favorite part! Did I mention I loved it?), I deeply appreciated Nozomi's drive to not let her gender "define" her. What I mean is that she plays for a boys’ soccer team and despite what anyone says of her being lesser because she’s a girl, she keeps playing her strongest and strives to get better. The conversation she has with her best friend about wanting to scream because of her supposed “weaker” physical abilities, I wanted to stand up and clap. Talk about empowering to chase after your dreams! Due to this, there are some really good things to reflect on because of her struggle as well as being told she'll always be physically weaker. I think seeing a character like this can be very inspiring for young women. I know it personally inspired me to keep giving my all in the things I do (even though I don't play sports)! And to not let anyone say I can’t do something simply because I’m not a man. I was a little confused on who exactly likes Nozomi, but I LOVEDDD the team! I'm excited to see how they will all grow together and hopefully kick Egami West's butt! I also wasn't overly fond of some of Nozomi's antics to get the coach to change his mind on letting her play, but that is minor. Overall, this was a fantastic first volume! With that kind of ending, I'm desperate to see how this story unfolds! *(I received an e-copy from the publisher via NetGalley. All thoughts expressed are my own.)*

    Thanks for your feedback!
