Based on the series of video games by Level-5, the original anime adaptation of Inazuma Eleven spanned 127 episodes and aired on TV Tokyo between 2008 and 2011. It was produced by OLM, Inc. and Dentsu Inc. and directed by Katsuhito Akiyama. Several sequels to the anime have also aired including Inazuma Eleven Go, Inazuma Eleven Go 2: Chrono Stone, and Inazuma Eleven Go Galaxy. The anime has also spawned four films: Inazuma Eleven: Saikyo Gundan Oga Shurai in 2010, Inazuma Eleven Go: Kyukyoku no Kizuna Griffon in 2011, the crossover movie Inazuma Eleven Go vs Danboru Senki W in 2012, and Inazuma Eleven Cho jigen Dream Match in 2014. The latest anime, titled Inazuma Eleven: Ares no Tenbin ( Inazuma Eleven: Balance of Ares ), is set to begin airing in October 2017.


Inazuma Eleven: Ares no Tenbin takes place after the events of the first game in a parallel world where the aliens never attacked and features many changes including Fubuki Atsuya and Kira Hiroto still being alive. Set some time after Raimon won the Football Frontier, all the original Raimon players have been split throughout teams in Japan to act as a “reinforcement committee” since they’re too young to coach. The story focuses on three characters from different schools: Asuto Inamori from Inakuni Raimon, Ryohei Haizaki from Seisho Gakuen, and Yuma Nosaka from Outei Tsukinomiya.
