Captain Tsubasa anime Season 2 has been officially confirmed by Shueisha recently, and here’s everything we know about the renewed season so far.
Captain Tsubasa manga started serializing in Weekly Shonen Magazine in 1981, and since then, it has received several spin-offs. The first anime adaptation of the manga premiered in 1983 on TV Tokyo, and the recent anime series aired on the same channel in 2018 that ran until 2019.
Initially, when the author of the manga came up with the idea, Japan was not so fond of football, so the publishers took the time to approve it. However, this manga became a reason for the popularity of football among people residing in Japan. In fact, it also became a source of motivation for several professional football players to make it a career. It’s also safe to say that somewhere along the way, the Captain Tsubasa franchise paved the way for other soccer-centric mangas, including Blue Lock and Haikyu.

Captain Tsubasa season 2 will adapt the manga’s Junior Youth Arc, which will show Tsubasa and his peers traveling to Paris for International Junior Youth Tournament.
