Giant Killing

Giant Killing

Daily Life, Drama - 2010 (TV)
Ranking: 648

Experiencing a long streak of poor performances for several years in the Japanese professional football league, the East Tokyo United (ETU) hires Takeshi Tatsumi as manager to try to break the curse that seems to have fallen over the team. Having spent three years in England, Tatsumi made the accomplishment of taking an amateur team to the top 32 teams of the FA Cup. Many consider him a bad choice and protest against this decision. They hold a grudge against Takeshi because they consider him a traitor for leaving ETU at the height of his career when he was still a football player. Unfazed by the negative mood that looms over the field, Tatsumi seems confident that he might be able to bring glory back to his team once again. (Source: ANN)

Reviews

   

Giant Killing mixes familiar sports tropes with the novel portrayal of the surrounding culture and matured characters. Though its failures in presentation are hard to overcome, the outlines of a great sports story are in place. For that alone Giant Killing merits the attention of sports-loving anime fans and hopefully another season. - Nihon Review

    

Sports anime may not appeal as much to some than they do to others, but it would be a shame to miss out on Giant Killing and what it has to offer simply because it’s often very different from the usual ride and viewers may find it a very rewarding experience. - MyAnimeList (Andristian)
