Giant Killing is one of those few anime that I couldn’t stop watching once I started. Usually I’m not a fan of sport anime, especially not football/soccer, but Giant Killing has such an interesting story I can’t help but love it.
Giant Killing is about a Japanese soccer team currently at the bottom of their league when they decide to hire their previous star player, Takeshi Tatsumi, as the new manager of the team. Here’s the opening theme (mirrored, unfortunately):
Not many openings suit the anime they appear in, and I’m quite happy to say that’s not the case with ‘My Story ~Mada Minu Ashita e~’ by The Cherry Cokes. I’m not sure exactly why, but this song fits quite well in the football/soccer community (or what I know of it, anyway). I think it’s the Irish sort of sound the whole song has to it, I don’t know. But it sure has become my favourite song to play lately. Hopefully, it becomes yours too. =)
