--> The Captain Tsubasa manga was published in Weekly Shōnen Jump from 1981 to 1988 and, later, collected in 37 tankōbon volumes. It arrives in Italy thanks to Star Comics which has also published the 18 volumes of Captain Tsubasa World Youth and the two specials Captain Tsubasa World Youth Special and Captain Tsubasa - Taro Misaki Story. However, due to a dispute between FIFA and the Japanese publisher Shūeisha regarding the presence of real teams, jerseys and players in the work, Star Comics was unable to publish the remaining series or reprint Captain Tsubasa World Youth.
