It's been years since Kakeru and Nana finally got together but their story is over. Now, it's time for their children to star in their own story.

Synopsis

Just as Keiko Aizawa was feeling down on herself, a cruel twist of fate forces history to repeat itself in a bizarre way.

Nana is killed in a freak murder during a diner robbery, giving her life trying to protect Keiko. Regardless, Keiko's heart is rendered beyond medical repair from the same incident and is left clinging to life. What saves her life is a mother-to-daughter heart transplant.

The perp is soon apprehended, convicted of voluntary manslaughter, and sent to jail, but the lives of the Aizawas are forever changed.

After briefly falling into depression after losing her mother, Keiko learns that she carries Nana's heart and experiences her last feelings.

Recovering herself, Keiko is filled with new resolve as she follows the path of soccer.

Notes & Trivia

  • Because Emperor Akihito abdicated on 30 April 2019, ending the Heisei Era, the entirety of the story takes place in the Reiwa Era.
  • The story and title was partially inspired by the manga/anime series by Tsukasa Hojo, Angel Heart, a parallel universe spin-off of the manga/anime series City Hunter.
  • This story is a complete reboot of the Next Knight in the Area series, with its own continuity and a new story.
    • The story starts the day before Keiko is born, roughly nine months after 2018 FIFA World Cup. It then fast forwards fourteen years to 2033 (Year 14 of the Reiwa Era), when the Keiko of this version is 14-years-old and a second year in middle school. The rest of the story takes place mostly in 2035 (Year 16 of the Reiwa Era), when the Keiko of this version is 16-years-old and a first year in high school.
      • This is based on the idea that she was conceived right after Japan was eliminated in the Round of 16 stage of the Knockout Tournament.
      • Also, since high school in Japan last for three years, and it's established that Kakeru and Nana were 1st years in 2012, basing the story around that point seems suitable.
        • However, it completely disregards the epilogue of Area no Kishi, which shows that Japan beat Brazil in the semifinals and faced the finals against Germany. Whether or not Kakeru and Nana were married yet or just engaged in the epilogue is ambiguous too.
