Ao Ashi Episode 23 Release Date, Preview & Where To Watch

Football is one of the most beloved sports ever to exist. That case is no different for the anime genre as well. The sports genre has always been one of the most fan-favourites in recent years. The contemporary sports genre has had a tremendous increase in viewers due to amazing animes ongoing and coming up.

Aoi Ashi depicts the journey of Aoi Ashito, a middle school student who, like most of us, dreams of becoming a professional football player. Every journey is filled with obstacles; one major obstacle is his family’s financial situation.

However, things took a massive turn when J-league team coach Fukuda, a former player, scouted him. Fukuda recognised the ample hidden talent and called him for a tryout at Tokyo Esperion. But will he succeed in making it pro, or will his dreams have a terrible ending?

Episode 22 Recap:

The previous episode begins with Esperion trying to reclaim its lead. Despite being 1-0 down, it looked like everyone had given up. Unexpectedly Tachibana comes out and requests all of his teammates not to give and give their best.

Sugawara, a second-year student, suggests returning to Esperion’s original style of using short passes. Despite his request Tachibana, Aoi and Takeshima decide not to go with the idea.

After a few passes, the game becomes lively when Tachibana regains his confidence and somehow manages to score a goal, which gives the whole team a morale boost.

However, it looked like Esperion was about to make a comeback when Musashino switched to an offside trap. Due to not being adapted to formations and tactics, Aoi couldn’t manage to break through this offside trap and was continuously caught offside.

On the other hand, Kaneda decided to play smart and told his captain to give a through ball between the defenders since it looked like they didn’t have good chemistry. The plan worked perfectly; however, Kuroda made the last mint tackle when the ball was about to cross the goal line resulting in a collision with the post.
