The upcoming Shoot! Goal to the Future soccer anime has received a teaser trailer that previews its characters, voice performances, and soccer action. In addition, a July premiere window was revealed, while staff and cast details for the show were also released.

The staff of Shoot! Goal to the Future includes Noriyoshi Nakamura (Itsudatte My Santa!) as director, Junichi Kitamura (Higehiro episode director) as assistant director, Yukiko Akiyama (Merc StoriA: The Apathetic Boy and the Girl in a Bottle) as character designer, and Mitsutaka Hirota (EDENS ZERO) as series composer. EMT Squared is the animation production company. 

Meanwhile, the cast includes Chiaki Kobayashi as Hideto Tsuji, Shunichi Toki as Subaru Kurokawa, Yuuki Ono as Shou Kazama, Shimba Tsuchiya as Kouhei Kokubo, Yuuichirou Umehara as Atsushi Kamiya, and Kousuke Toriumi as Yoshiharu Kubo.

Shoot! Goal to the Future is inspired by Tsukasa Ooshima’s 1990-1996 Shoot! manga but features an original story. The website describes the anime as:

Atsushi Kamiya, a former captain at Kakegawa High School and the world-renowned “courageous captain” for a famous Italian soccer team…

And Hideto Tsuji, a student at Kakegawa High School, who seems uninterested in the now-weakened soccer team…
Their meeting is the start of a new legend…

The Shoot! manga previously inspired a Toei Animation-produced anime series that ran from 1993 to 1994. There have been multiple Shoot! manga aside from the original, including the 2020 to 2021 gag spin-off Shoot! no Sekai ni Gon Nakayama Tensei Shiteshimatta Ken that featured real-life soccer manager and former professional player Masashi Nakayama.

Melvyn originally wanted to write about video games, and he did so for a few years, starting from his college days. He still writes about video games sometimes, but now focuses on anime-related news content and the occasional review. Some of his free time is spent self-learning Japanese, both out of interest in the language and because English-translated light novels and manga are expensive. Every anime season, Melvyn looks forward to discovering new standout episodes and OP/ED animation sequences, as well as learning about the storyboard artists and directors behind them.
