Like soccer cartoons? Good for you. Japanese game developer Level-5 (Dragon Quest VIII, Professor Layton franchise) has spun its soccer role-playing-game Inazuma Eleven into an anime.
That anime has aired its first season, and according to Level-5, it will continue for a second season. There is also a manga based on the title.
The DS game has players put together a team for tournaments. A sequel for the Nintendo DS has been announced along with a Wii version. Inazuma Eleven has not yet been localised into English.
