I recently watched Hungry Heart Wild Striker. It's a little old now (well when I say old it was made in 2002/2003) but it's a must see for any shounen, sports anime/manga or football anime fan!
I loved it and this guy (the main character) Kyosuke I absolutely love. He's one of the those characters who's a dufus but you just love him (Reminds me of Kagami from Kurobas a bit).
But yeah i love love love this guy!
And as I said it's an awesome precursor-ish anime which kinda sets the tone for this genre of sports anime/manga series.
Also found out just now his va Toriumi Kōsuke is the va for Imaizumi from Yowamushi Pedal ... haha no wonder he sounds smexy and I like him!
Oh and even though I haven't watched it (I plan to though) the Mangaka also created the more well known series Captain Tsubasa!
But yeah I can't praise this anime enough!
