There have been a lot of sports anime coming out recently after big sports anime like Haikuu, Yuri on Ice!! And Kuroko no Basket anime based on different types of sports got popular. One of the same genre anime that was released recently, Ao Aishi, is a hidden gem among them. Ao Ashi is a football anime based on a Japanese Shounen manga of the same name, written and illustrated by Yugo Kobayashi and based on a concept by Naohiko Ueno, which has been in serialization since January 2015. Here’s what we know about Ao Ashi Season 2 Release Date.
Following the craze of football, the manga became so popular that it has been adapted into an anime by the production team, Production I.G., known for producing hit anime like Attack on Titan, Haikyuu, Vinland Saga, Blue Spring Ride, and all the other hit anime you can name. The TV series also became popular among the fans since the concept of using football as the main sport was quite fresh in recent years. The series isn’t a superpowered, super shots type of anime; instead, it focuses on realistic football, making it different from all the supernatural anime released nowadays.
Also, considering animating fast-moving scenes when players are playing, the studio did a pretty decent job of illustrating the scene, making it bearable, though sometimes the animation quality may fall off. The opening and ending songs are equally pleasing to hear.
For people unfamiliar with the sport, the anime follows the perspective of Ashito Aoi, who is unfamiliar with the logistics of soccer as he was mainly self-taught and lacked foundation. If you are also watching the anime currently and want to know when the new season will come out, let’s find that out together.
