Trivia Edit

  • Even though this movie is half of its run just a retelling with the scenes of the Kids' Dream Arc, from the beginning of the film this can be considered a direct follow-up of the 1983 TV series just after the end of the Nankatsu vs. Toho finals match.
  • Here, Tsubasa is not playing at his best (he misses two Drive Shot opportunities) but still he does not seemto be as injured as what is shown in both the Manga and the Shin Captain Tsubasa OVA where he had to rest at least a whole month to be able to play, so he missed all training camp sessions in Japan and almost cost him to be benched for the whole of the Germany campaign before the International Jr. Youth Cup (J Boys' Challenge arc).
  • This is the only movie directly connected with the 1983 series as what means the canon part of the manga serialization.
