After Tsubasa and FC Barcelona beat Real Madrid for the second time in La Liga play, the sun rises. Tsubasa and Sanae return to Japan after the team’s celebrations in Barcelona, where he spends a few days.

Then, Tsubasa attends the training camp where the final roster for the Japanese Olympic squad is shaped. Japan competed against New Zealand and Mexico as part of its Olympic training. While New Zealand was a breeze to beat, the squad had a much harder time against Mexico.

When the genuine games begin, Japan will be put in a difficult position by their first opponent, the Netherlands. But Japan rallied and won 3-1 over the Netherlands.

Tsubasa’s exciting run as one of the best football players of all time comes to a dramatic conclusion in the final arc, which also marks the end of the Olympics.

It’s a shame to see this story come to a close, but it was exciting to watch Tsubasa develop into such a skilled musician.
