May 8, 2013: I read the news from today about Sir Alex Ferguson retiring at the end of the season and I am really sad to see him go since I became a fan of the team knowing only Sir Alex at the helm.

Languages/Narration Style

  • Although the text is in English, normal font is used when people are speaking in Japanese while purely English dialogue will be written in Italics. Meanwhile, dialogue using Spanish and Serbian words are respectively written with normal and Cyrillic alphabets then followed by the English translation between parentheses.
  • Since the story is set in an European setting, "football" is the term used to name soccer in the whole story unless when part of the story is set in Japan, where "soccer" is used.
  • In Britain, the title of manager belongs to the person who assumes of directing a football/soccer team (as head coach and general manager at the same time); it is completely different from the position Nana assumed for the Enoshima High team.
  • To give you the feeling of watching the broadcast of a match or an interview on television, the commentary will be standing out as each commentary line will be preceded by the name of the person speaking in bold and italics.
  • Sometimes, lyrics from various songs will appear aligned on the center. I usually try to give a musical ambiance with a selection of songs in each fanfic I write under this username (or as KiraYamatoFan on


February 22, 2014: The sequel will finally be titled The Road to the Promised Land. The setting will be the season following the epilogue of Dream or Premonition. Kakeru and Nana will help Manchester United competing for the big trophies, especially the biggest prize of all club trophies: the UEFA Champions League (or the European Champion Clubs' Cup). However, former teammates and former opponents from the original Area no Kishi manga series will stand as obstacles in the way. Will Kakeru and Nana overcome them? Prologue and Chapter 1 will come soon, but the following chapters will only start arriving after next summer.Toukairin2012 (talk) 00:50, February 23, 2014 (UTC)
