Coming to you starting next week, a story of passionate youth, "The Red-Blooded Eleven." I, the main character of the show, Tamai Shingo, who lives only for soccer, will give it my best! Cheerful, rough-and-tumble, and super cool; that's me. The coming-of-age drama of coach Matsuki Tenpei and the young eleven, "The Red-Blooded Eleven." Please root for us! The Red-Blooded Eleven. It's not like someone gathered us. Red passionate blood, calling to each other. We fight together, us eleven, opening our sweat-blurred eyes. Men aim for the enemy goal. Pass! Dribble! Heading! Go! Shoot! Men aim for the enemy goal. Pass!
Dribble! Heading! Go! Shoot! In this insignificant farming village area, on the southern outskirts of the Saitama prefecture, it's been ten years since the construction boom suddenly occurred. The once calm area developed surprisingly fast into a satellite town of Tokyo. Welcome, welcome! Oh my! How about it? Still breathin'! It's cheap, come and buy it! Everyone, it takes an hour each way for our students to get to the nearest high school! If it stays like this, we should feel sorry for the students! They're already tired from making the trip to school and back! This isn't a good way for our children to learn! Everyone, we should work together with the authorities and build a new high school in our hometown! Well, that's just... you know, ma'am... If there was one close by... Okay, please sign. Look how many signed. "Let's petition for the opening of a new school to the authorities." That's right! Gather under this ball! And so a new high school was built in this new town.
Its name was Shinsei High School. In this new school, there was no friendship and no trust in it yet, and there was no school tradition, nevermind courtesy. The atmosphere in the school resembled that of the Dark Ages, with a "everyone for themself" principle. My name is Moriyama, the first principal of this newly built high school. By the way, I am a big fan of Westerns! Did you hear? That baldie is a fan of Westerns. Westerns are, in other words, pioneer dramas. In hope of finding the New Land, pioneers once went to North America, cultivating fields to build towns, fighting against nature, fighting against Indians, fighting against bands of outlaws, and therefore building the foundation of what is known as America today. The documentation of this victory are called Westerns! From here on, our Shinsei High School is just like the Western movies. We are a ragtag bunch creating school traditions and the like from now on! Hey! What are you doing? You bastard!
Everyone, silence please! Be quiet please! W-What are you doing? You bastard! The one thing you need now is the spirit of the pioneers! Ouch... What the hell? YOU IDIOTS! Who was that? Where is he? Oh my! Up there! You there, who are you? Hey! What's up, Western Baldie? What is the meaning of skipping the first morning assembly? I was listening to what Western Baldie had to say, but I have no intention of being down there with the rest of you idiots. How dare you be so rude? The principal of Shinsei was talking! Damn him... being so cocky right from the start! Seems like everyone in here is a bumpkin. What did you say? What? Even Shinsei Tobacco is the cheapest. No matter what Western Baldie says, a new high school under a new system of education is just ridiculous. Hey, you seem to be a really cocky one.
What's your name? Thank you for asking. I was born in Kanto. I was wandering about, but I'll rest here for now. My family name is Tamai, my given name Shingo. From now on, I beg your kindness. Tamai Shingo? Bastard, you're so high on yourself. You must have a lot of confidence you can take each of us on. Oh? Sounds like you're experienced in reading people. I was a bit known in Downtown Tokyo for playing soccer. I won't lose to anyone in kicking! You're not trying to become the boss of this class, are you? Well, let's see... looking around, none of these guys look any stronger than me, now do they? What did you say? You bastard! My most heartfelt apologies. How about eating this! Idiot, so you finally attacked... I was waiting for someone else trying to be the boss of this class to show up. Let's settle this once and for all. Shit! Take that! Shit!
Take this! You! Take this! And this! This is too easy. Listen up! I, Tamai Shingo, am the boss of this class. What the...? When standing you're decent, but sitting you look like a gas tank, and your walking figure is like a pig's butt. My, how rude! Don't worry about it. Wait a second! What are you going to do about this flower? This flower? What about it? I'm Tamai Shingo. Want to go out? No! Damn... who does she think she is? You bitch! Excuse me. Hold it! Scumbag! Are you Tamai Shingo, the boss of class C? Word of me has made it to your ears already? I guess I'm pretty popular. BE SERIOUS! I get it. You want to become the boss of this school... don't make me laugh! You fool! You want to fight Interesting! All right! Let's go then! Come! Bring it! Wait a second.
Preparation is important for everything. Hey, everyone, don't you think it's rare to see a hippo extermination in Saitama? Shut up! Hey, slow hippo, come over here. What's wrong, hippo? Come here. Don't fight, don't fight. You guys shouldn't fight. What are you doing? The fight of the century is taking place. Just leave, you outsider! The fight of the century, huh? Well, knock it off either way. What's the merit of a stupid fight? Besides, I'm not an outsider, and this is one of my tasks. What? I am Matsuki Tenpei, your new gym teacher. Well, nice meeting you. Our gym teacher? Hippo, did you hear anything about that? Don't know him. If you've got the energy to fight, why don't you guys try this instead? It's soccer. Soccer? Soccer?? Soccer? Soccer? Soccer? Soccer? Soccer? Soccer? Soccer, huh? Soccer, he says. Listen, this is a new school and you've just been gathered together.
There are no trusting relationships yet. That's why fights break out. Soccer is a sport about passing. You pass the ball to someone and you receive the ball from someone. This give-and-take mentality is needed at this school. Ha! Give-and-take mentality? Soccer isn't about theory. What? <i>All you need is one</i> Everyone who wants to learn teamwork, gather under this ball! You're kidding! What amazing kicking power! Damn! Pretty good! Now it's my turn. Take this! Cool! T-This is bad! It's flying towards the principal's office! I did it. Hey, you soccer-freak teacher, I'm not trying to show off my good side. Do you understand? Who the hell broke my window!? Well, if it isn't Matsuki-sensei. Principal. We've been awaiting you. Here you go. Thank you very much for coming. Oh, no. I'm honored to be welcomed so nicely even though it's just me.
Now this is surprising. To think that the principal personally greets someone who's just a sports teacher. I heard that there weren't enough workers. But even the school, huh? YOU IDIOT! So loud... Who do you think Matsuki-sensei is? Matsuki Tenpei is the former national team goalkeeper and was called "the fierce tiger of the goal." He's the tip-top, greatest goalkeeper in Japanese soccer ever! A goalkeeper, huh? Really... Is he really? A goalkeeper? Isn't that wonderful? How cool! That's right! A goalkeeper. Wow... I'm honored. "The fierce tiger of the goal"... I think I've heard of him. The best goalkeeper there ever was, huh? This is a little surprising. No wonder that kick wasn't ordinary. Dear students, soccer is booming nowadays. Of course, Matsuki-sensei had a lot of offers from others to be their coach, but even so, he chose to be an ordinary gym teacher and came to our school.
Now why do you think he did? There's only one reason: I like the pioneering spirit. A new school in a new town... I want to create a new team according to my principles. I want to teach you all true friendship and team spirit through soccer. The drama of life is in soccer! This is my reason for living. How about it, everyone? Is there anyone who wants to play some ball in the mud with youthful passion and burning fighting spirit? How about it? I'll say it once more. For the give-and-take sport of soccer, is there anyone who will gather under this ball? I want to play... We do too. Girls can't... Of course not. How idiotic. Like they can play soccer. Agreed. Huh? Both of you, hold it right there. D-Don't you guys like soccer? Like someone could break your window from here without liking soccer. It's just that I dislike that all-talk teacher over there.
W-What? That soccer freak over there claims that soccer is a give-and-take mentality sport, but that's not true at all. No, I believe that along with the soccer ball, friendship and trust are also passed. Don't make me laugh! I hate taking orders from people who think they're in charge of me. Screw your give-and-take mentality! I can't take that crap. I, Oohira Yousuke, totally agree. H-How rude! Anyway, you guys have fun then. Bye, bye. All right, let's leave too, guys. Yeah! Y-You idiots! Pay for the broken window! Don't be so stubborn! Bye! Oh well, let them go, Principal. B-But... Principal, soccer doesn't need any stars or heroes. Only team play and team spirit is needed. Guys like them only disturb the team play and can't be used. They're nothing but trouble.
Tamai, you just said exactly what I wanted to say. This is surprising... I didn't know that stupid hippos had things to say. Damn you! Listen, it seems like you don't like taking orders. The same goes for me. There should only be one person who gives orders. You're right. One boss is more than enough. I guess I'm in your way then, huh? I'm going to be that boss! The one giving orders is going to be... Tamai Shingo, no matter what. You bastard! D-Damn... Damn! Bastard! Bastard! Bastard! You...! You...! Bastard! Bastard! Bastard! You...! Isn't this quite the fight you're having. Huh? When you take it this far, it's impressive despite the violence. I'm a freshman in class A, Asuka Ryouko. Hey, Oohira-hippo, quite the lady has appeared, hasn't she?
You're right, she's a gutsy gal! Oh, I don't have great guts. But it's not like you're going to stop fighting just because I say so, right? It might not be any of my business, but I'm going to report this to the teachers. No, there's no need for that. You're Matsuki, the new teacher, right? Were you watching the whole time? Yeah, that's right. Right from when the match started. Teacher, why didn't you stop them earlier? This isn't very teacher-like behavior. Who cares? I stopped them before as a teacher, but this time I was evaluating their fighting spirit as the new coach of this school's soccer team. What!? Fighting spirit, huh? I've got plenty left, you know! Wanna go? That's enough! Unfortunately, from what I've seen, you guys aren't that impressive. It's like weak horses running in first place. This is a Japanese proverb meaning that even when weak horses run in first place, they eventually get overtaken by stronger horses and lose the race. Neither of you wanted to join the soccer team, but...
That's just fine. We don't need guys like you anyway. Damn you... Wait! Damn! Oh my! Damn it... Damn... Damn! Listen carefully, you're the witness! Witness? That's right. Damn that Matsuki looking down on me. He won't get away with this! I, Tamai Shingo, will be his enemy and fight against his soccer team no matter what. You'll be the witness of my declaration of war! All right, that's fine. I'll remember it, I’m a witness of your declaration of war, right? All right! Hippo, what about you? Yeah, the same goes for me! Damn... Who cares about the best goalkeeper there ever was? Who cares about "the fierce tiger of the goal"? I'm going to fight! Matsuki Tenpei is my enemy! Tamai Shingo is a strange guy. Is he stupid or is he clever, we don't know.
Shy, cheerful, and wicked. Once angry, he's a typhoon bastard. He fights and is shameless. But he fell in love with soccer. Now, under Matsuki Tenpei, the young eleven was formed. Once called "the fierce tiger of the goal," Matsuki Tenpei's training begins. But the hatred towards Matsuki in Tamai Shingo's heart keeps growing. Next time, "The Kick of Defiance." Please look forward to it!
