In Giant Killing a ragtag bunch from East Tokyo are struggling in Japan's top football league. The team is going through an abysmal spell right now where they are nearing the bottom of the table and have lost 5 matches in a row. The losses haven't done much to team morale, because it was already low. Fan support, on the other hand, is looking bleak. In the world of football, once the fans turn on a team the end is near. Teams don't recover. Coaches are fired, players are sold, and teams drop to lower divisions where profits often prevent them from ever being successful against even mediocre top division teams. East Tokyo United, ETU, can only blame their coach right now. And Coach is ready to give up this next game to prove to his team and fans, that against the biggest club in the nation he can make this team win.

In 2010, this manga received the 34th Annual Kodansha Manga Award for General Manga.

Doing a shite job maintaining this one. Jumping around = rate 1 and stop following.
What's up with the gap between chapter 37 and 152? Will they be uploaded on mangadex?

@Whyfalalala Thx for bringing us this excellent manga !
I'm following it on another reader as here are by far too many chapters missing.
@Whyfalalala enjoy your break, well deserved! Thank you for continuing support of this great manga
My favorite sport manga. Tsubaki's secret was revealed ?

Thanks for the people that is working in the translation. You all live in my heart, ?

@Narf Baby Steps is a manga with realistic concepts too.
Tsubaki's awkwardness awesomeness cannot be contained. So since four chapters are released this week, I'll take a break from release next week.
The best sports manga around (and I've read quite a few). Giant Killing seamlessly blends realistic gameplay with the complex off-the-field interactions of coach, player and front office staff. Combined with a cast of well developed and likable characters, it is truly a joy to read. Many thanks to the scantalators for their continued effort in bringing this wonderful manga to us!
hopefully they release missing chapter soon :)
Football Manager is a better game than FIFA, and this manga is closer to FM than FIFA.

Ergo, it's awesome. Fact.
@narf Why you, Prince of Tennis 2 is a perfectly realistic sports manga I'll have you know >:(. (Look it up if you haven't read it. It's the best.)

But yeah I agree with you.

I'd even go one step further and say it is one of the best sports mangas out there. Most of them are focussing way too much on individuals and "killer techniques" and completely ignore or sideline the team aspect, psychology, training routines, etc. They are honestly mostly fantasy dressed up as sport. Now this manga... I have ungodly amounts of love for it for showing sports how they really work. The art may not be the best ever, but the story, the characters and the whole way it adheres to realistic concepts more than makes up for it.

Top class sports manga, and I am very happy to see it getting updates.
This is probably the best football manga out there. Not because of polished art or so, but due to it realising how much of a team sport football is and thus allowing all characters to individually develop.

Similarly there is also development of the team as a whole, which is brought forth from the individual developments.

Heavily recommended manga.

I love how this manga highlights the character development of the non-players. Anyone else hyped for the World Cup next month?!
