Inazuma Eleven: Ares no Tenbin Anime/Game Project Gets Manga

Manga creator Atsushi Ohba (Yo-Kai Watch Busters) announced on Tuesday that he is drawing an Inazuma Eleven: Ares no Tenbin manga for Shogakukan's Monthly CoroCoro Comic magazine. The manga will launch in the magazine's February issue on January 15. A preview of the manga ran in the January issue on Friday.

The Inazuma Eleven: Ares no Tenbin television anime series is slated for spring 2018. Level 5 will launch the Inazuma Eleven: Ares no Tenbin game for PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, iOS, and Android in summer 2018.

In the story, protagonist Asuto Inamori's soccer club is disbanded after the school's soccer field is destroyed. He and friends go to Tokyo to attend Raimon-chuu (Raimon Junior High) to play soccer. The story is set after the first Inazuma Eleven anime and game. However, the show will take place in a parallel world from all other Inazuma Eleven soccer role-playing games (apart from the first), because the story has taken a different course.
