The Aoashi manga is based on an original story concept by Naohiko Ueno. It launched in Shogakukan’s Weekly Big Comic Spirits magazine in January 2015, and its 23rd volume was published on February 26.

Anime News Network describes the manga’s story as:

The manga centers on third-year middle school student Ashito Aoi, who lives in Ehime prefecture. Ashito has a strong talent in soccer, but he tries to hide it. Due to his very straightforward personality, he causes a disaster that serves as a huge setback for him. Then, Tatsuya Fukuya — a veteran of the strong J-Club team Tokyo City Esperion and coach of the club’s youth team — appears in front of Ashito. Tatsuya sees through Ashito and sees his talent, and invites him to try out for the youth team in Tokyo.
