JAPAN'S CONTRIBUTION TO THE FOOTIE

Who knew that Japan created such football greats as Zidane, Totti, and Del Piero??

Perhaps a slight exaggeration, but these star athletes credit Japanese comic classic "Captain Tsubasa" as a major influence in their decision to play the beautiful game.

The animation program is shown around the world - Asia to America, Europe and the Middle East (where the title has been localized to something like "Captain Masoud" - while kids are familiar with the program, most people allegedly do not realize it's a Japanese story).
