Noriyuki Nakamura (Dragon Slayer The Legend of Heroes film) is directing Shoot! Goal to the Future at EMT Squared, with soccer anime scheduled to premiere on July 2 in Japan, with AT-X getting the first showings at 11:30, followed by TV Tokyo on July 3 at 10 PM. Crunchyroll will be simulcasting the series this July. The official Shoot! Goal to the Future website describes the series as such:
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…
