The soccer team of the Nankatsu middle school, from the Shizuoka prefecture.

Profile Edit

As Tsubasa entered middle school, he soon made it into the school soccer club. His former teammates from Nankatsu elementary school, as well as some former member of Shutetsu institute soccer team, namely Mamoru Izawa, Teppei Kisugi, Hajime Taki, Shingo Takasugi and Yuzo Morisaki, also followed him. Thanks to Tsubasa, the team won two national middle school tournaments in a row, with both times defeating Kojiro Hyuga's team, Toho academy, in the finals.

During Tsubasa and everyone's third year in middle school, with all of their rivals - the ones they once faced at Yomiuri Land - improved from before, Nankatsu had many hard fights to defend their title. Beating Otomo in the Shizuoka prefecture qualification round, and then getting past strong opponents like Azumaichi, Hanawa, Hirado and Furano, Nankatsu made it to the finals, with Toho being their opponent for the third time. With the match undecided even after extra time, both teams were declared champions, earning Nankatsu their V3.

The following year, due to the former starting members graduating, the team, consisting of Tsubasa's underclassmen, lost against Shun Nitta's Otomo during the Shizuoka prefecture qualification round.
