‘Ao Ashi’ Plot
Ao Ashi is the story of a 3rd-year middle school student, Ashito Ao from the countryside of Ehime. He dreams of joining a soccer club from a good high school, but his dream can’t come true as he became the reason for his team losing the tournament in an important match. Everyone lost their interest in him but somehow he got the attention of Tatsuya Furuda, the coach for the “Japan Youth League”. That’s not all where there is an opportunity, there will always be challenges too.
Ao does not belong to a rich family. Even though he was invited by the big-shot coach, he does not have the gear to participate in. All he has is his worn-out shoes. But, his elder brother helps him out by giving him his savings to buy the gears he needs and for his travel expenses.
This is a story where a poor kid is going to start from scratch and make a huge difference while following his dream. If you are passionate enough about your dreams, nothing can stop you.

What is a competition? You’ll get to see a glimpse of competition in this episode. An innocent country-side boy stepping out in a big city like Tokyo for the first time. Ashito is already feeling lost. Stepping out at the metro station made him feel like a stranger in the new town. Well, he is a stranger here, but if he wants to chase his big dream then he needs to get familiar with this place as soon as possible.
What a coincidence! Hana Ichijo, Coach Furuda’s sister-in-law who is a middle school student is the first person Ashito bumps into. Well, things are looking familiar already. All the anime protagonists have got to meet a girl, whom we’ll try to ship with in the future.

Every player present here is a competition. And to prove himself worthy he can’t let anyone have the ball. He made sure to keep the ball to himself and Goal! Even though it was Kaneda who scored the goal, Ashito’s accurate pass stole the spotlight for sure.
