Related News Not being a polyglot one props up the phone with loaded images at Taisei Miyashiro the 17-year-old Japanese forward The Chinese phone flickers up with cartoon figures of an extremely popular Japanese pop-culture character ‘Captain Tsubasa’ Miyashiro’s face creases into a lovely little smile and he pops out: “Tsubasa” For the last two hours he had kicked the ball around in the heavy Guwahati rain faced a barrage of questions from a large Japanese press pack and that was the first real boyish smile from him And why not Captain Tsubasa is a cute figure from Manga – Japanese comic and graphic books created in 1981 a generation before Miyashiro but has transcended the imagination of even its creator Yoichi Takahashi In 1983 it was casted as anime on television and been translated and broadcasted all over the world In the Middle East kids know him as Captain Majed In North America he is Flash kicker In South America his show was called Supercampeones In Europe the wondrous football anime star was named Oliver It’s a human story of someone learning about life values- a coming-of-age story Fernando Torres the Spanish great once said: “I started playing football because of this” Ditto Franscesco Cocco and Alessandro Del Piero who treasures a signed drawing from Takahashi Lukas Podolski who plays in Japan these days is a great fan even playing with a boot that has a huge imprint of Tsubasa Fernando Torres had said that Captain Tsubasa was the reason he started playing football (Source: File) No surprise then that it’s most popular in Japan Hidetoshi Nakata the first Japanese success in Europe doesn’t watch football even now He never did as a kid It was Tsubasa who ensnared him and made him want to copy the moves Players from Zinedine Zidane to Ronaldinho have talked about the influence of the character in their football development But all that was in the past What about now Does he still continue to inspire kids to become footballers Even the Japanese team staff aren’t sure whether Captain Tsubasa has had any effect on the current U-17 kids but one question is allowed to be sneaked in And Miyashiro’s answer kills all doubts “When I was a boy I loved the character and wanted to play like him As I grew older I realised I can’t copy those difficult moves” Laughter Same sentiments are expressed by another player Okuno Kohei who says not only did he start playing football because of the anime but would also try the shots in training It made him fall in love with football Captain Tsubasa is a boy in love with football who dreams of winning the World Cup for Japan At the start of the series he was 11 and 36 years later the series is still going strong – Tsubasa is now 22 and plays for Japan and FC Barcelona The World Cup is yet to be won The series isn’t just about him – it has the very popular goalkeeper Wakabayashi (Benji in Europe) and other characters who all have their background stories etched out in great detail It has signature shots from Tsubasa: heel lift cyclone razor shot off-the-bar overhead kick drive shoot – the list goes on and the ball goes through astonishing curves sometimes spins differently and basically defies science Japan U17 player Taisei Miyashiro said that he wanted to play like Captain Tsubasa when he was younger (Source: AP) In a shot skylab hurricane two players push their legs together to propel one into the air to head the ball for a goal No wonder poor Miyashiro said he couldn’t even copy It has had another curious and an astounding effect on Japanese football Tsubasa is a attacking midfielder a playmaker in the mould of Diego Maradona and for long Japanese kept producing midfielders Keisuke Honda (AC Milan) Shinji Kagawa (Manchester United) and Makota Hasebe (FC Nurnberg) were all midfielders in the mould of Tsubasa And even Japanese forwards like Hiroshi Kiyotake Shinji Okazaki Yoichiro Kakitani and Takashi Inui all played as midfielders for their respective clubs and only moved into attacking positions when playing for Japan So much so that around 2002 when Japan hosted the World Cup a corporate approached Takahashi to create a popular striker And he came up with a classic Anti-Tsubasaa in Kanou Kyosuke in a series called Hungry Heart Takahashi hoped it would create a legion of forwards and going by the current set of teenagers it seems to be working “Japan weren’t good in offence I wanted them to have attacking strikers and created Kyosuke” It’s a pity that Takahashi can’t speak English and so one turns to Tom Byer the American who revolutionised grassroots football in Japan to talk about the influence of anime “There is absolutely no doubt in my mind that Captain Tsubasa was central in kicking football interest in Japan Many of the kids in my clinics in the 80’s and ‘90s’ would talk about it I met him (Takahashi) the other night for dinner: a very nice humble man who is pleased with what he has done and surprised how it has spread all over the world” It even inspired Byer to create football comic books which proved to be a great success “It was in the comics called Korokoro Komikko hundreds of page with storylines from video games and my football strip It was huge: a circulation of 12 million in the heydays” Which is huge but nothing in comparison to Captain Tsubasa that was serialised in the weekly ‘Shonen Jump’ and had 5 million at its pomp and even now attracts a 3-million readership “In France football is played in leagues In Japan it’s in schools It’s this close bond between sport and things like: links between friends upper class and lower class parents and all the heartful things that I wanted to capture in my manga” Takahashi once said A baseball fan as a kid Takahashi was first drawn to football in his high school when he watched the 1978 World Cup in Argentina He was truly hooked and three years later rolled out the football manga Captain Tsubasa Before him there were at least two other football mangas – The Red-Blooded Eleven and Shinji Mizushima’s Downtown Samurai which came up after Japan won bronze at the 1968 Olympics but didn’t catch on much as the game itself didn’t flourish in the country Manga isn’t just restricted to sports or kids’ comics – it’s consumed by adults and has topics that vary from political erotic cultural soap-opera-ish storylines science fiction poetry history – the whole jazz basically It’s generally seen as a post-Second World War phenomenon but Tokyo professor Brigitte Koyama-Richard has dated it back to scroll-paintings in the 12th century in her book ‘One thousand years of Manga’ Scholarly studies on Manga and graduate school programmes are in place now in Japan It’s Captain Tsubasa though that is the rage with the kids “You can make it really dynamic Much more than a photograph You can create this flashy hyper-reality I am inspired by elements from karate and pro-wrestling take from sports other than soccer It’s a comic about soccer – so you need rivals Initial idea was to end up with all these rivals in Japan’s national team” says Takahashi Like Kojiro HyugaWhere Tsubasa was a gentle character from a upper-class background and a creative playmaker Kojiro was from a poor familywith a strong personality and a very powerful kick Takahashi has said that he will continue drawing manga until he dies Japanese football fans and players owe a lot to Takahashi and the wondrous Captain Tsubasa whose motto is ‘The ball is my friend’ Even as fans await the day Captain Tsubasa would win the World Cup for Japan the reach has already gone beyond sporting boundaries In May this year Kassoumah Mhd Obada a Syrian student studying in Japan started translating the series in his native language and it found its way to Syrian refugees who are beginning to devour it “Refugee children live in situations far away from a place where they can have dreams” Obada says in an interview to Asahi “I want to show them how wonderful it is to have a dream and strive for it just like Captain Tsubasa” For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Related NewsBy: AP | Published: August 16 2017 8:42 pm Gerard Deulofeu played well enough to convince Barcelona to activate its re-signing clause (Source: Reuters) Related News The Spanish league lost Neymar in a record transfer to Paris Saint-Germain but still has plenty of star players on display including the two touted as the best in the world Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo Barcelona also kept Luis Suarez Real Madrid held on to Gareth Bale and Atletico Madrid still has Antoine Griezmann The top three teams did not make any blockbuster additions but some talented players will keep the Spanish league attractive Here are some of the players worth watching in Spain when the league kicks off Friday: GERARD DEULOFEU A product of Barcelona’s youth academy Deulofeu is expected to take over Neymar’s spot in Barcelona’s attack along with Messi and Suarez The 23-year-old Spaniard was bought back from Everton which he had joined in 2015 after failing to make an impact with Barcelona’s first team He had spent seasons on loan at Everton (2013-14) and Sevilla (2014-15) before being bought by the English club Deulofeu spent the second half of last season on loan at AC Milan scoring four league goals in 17 games He played well enough to convince Barcelona to activate its re-signing clause and bring back the forward who can play on either flank MANUEL “NOLITO” AGUDO The veteran forward is back in Spain after a short stint with Manchester City last season Nolito signed with Sevilla and will reunite with manager Eduardo Berizzo who coached him for two seasons at Celta Vigo The 30-year-old Nolito replaces Victor “Vitolo” Machin who transferred to Atletico Madrid Nolito who played briefly for Barcelona in the early 2010s was a member of Spain’s squad at the 2016 European Championship in France Spaniard winger Jesus Navas is also moving from City to Sevilla returning to the team he played until 2013 Sevilla also added Colombian forward Luis Muriel who was with Sampdoria PAULINHO The 29-year-old Brazilian midfielder was Barcelona’s first signing after Neymar’s departure arriving on a four-year contract in a transfer worth 40 million euros ($47 million) A regular in Brazil’s national team Paulinho played for Tottenham for two seasons before moving to Chinese club Guangzhou Evergrande in 2015 The versatile midfielder thrived with Brazilian club Corinthians before moving to the Premier League standing out for his prowess as a defensive midfielder and his ability to help out in attack His signing came as a surprise to many because of his age and because he is not known for playing the ball-possession game characteristic of Barcelona Paulinho is expected to fight for a starting spot with Sergio Busquets and Ivan Rakitic The Catalan club also reinforced its defence by signing 23-year-old right back Nelson Semedo the former Benfica player who was in Portugal’s squad at this year’s Confederations Cup VICTOR “VITOLO” MACHIN Vitolo was signed by Atletico Madrid but will spend the first six months of his new contract playing for boyhood club Las Palmas in the Canary Islands Atletico is not allowed to register any new players until 2018 because of a FIFA-imposed ban for having broken rules regarding the transfer of underage players Coach Diego Simeone will only be able to count on the former Sevilla forward as from January The 27-year-old Vitolo was part of Las Palmas’ youth program before joining Sevilla in 2013 He helped the southern Spanish club win three Europa League titles from 2014-16 and has been capped 11 times by Spain scoring four goals THEO HERNANDEZ The 19-year-old French left back was in the centre of a dispute between Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid choosing European champion Real instead of the team where he played most of his youth Atletico said Hernandez rejected several of its offers to renew his contract which ran until 2021 Hernandez impressed last season while playing for newly promoted Spanish club Alaves on loan from Atletico Alaves finished ninth in the Spanish league and reached the Copa del Rey final which it lost to Barcelona Hernandez will likely have to fight for a starting spot with veteran Marcelo at Real where he will be coached
