Inazuma Eleven 3: Sekai e no Chousen!!
Inazuma Eleven GO Galaxy
In the match against Big Waves of Australia, Inazuma Japan had to break the famous "Box Lock Defense". Due to Kidou, they were able to find a flaw in their defense. It's also thanks to Kudou's order to not leave the Inazuma Japan building during the two days before the match. Big Waves was also one of the favorites of the FFI in the Asia Category. Inazuma Japan won the match by a score of 2-1.
In the match against Desert Lion, Inazuma Japan gained the upper hand at first, but they soon grew tired and started losing points due to the heat. Due to switching Toramaru in the right time, they won. Inazuma Japan won against Desert Lion 3-2 and we discovered the new shoot of Toramaru, Tiger Drive.
Inazuma Japan had a tough match against Fire Dragon. They were one of the favorites of the FFI in the Asia category. They were strong due to their "perfect" tactic and their strong players such as Burn, Gazel, and Aphrodi. In this match, Fubuki and Midorikawa got injured and had to leave the team, Tobitaka reached his full potential and create Shinkuuma thanks to Endou, and Gouenji was permitted to stay in the team. In the end, Inazuma Japan won the match by a score of 4-3.
This was their first international match. They struggled a lot to win as Endou needed a new signature hissatsu, which he created in the match, Ijigen The Hand. Someoka and Sakuma debuted as part of Inazuma Japan's team, as they didn't play in the Asia preliminaries. Inazuma Japan won the match by a score of 3-2.
During this match Endou, Kidou, Fudou and Sakuma weren't able to play because they were to far off because of Kageyama. Their coach and Hibiki weren't there too, thanks to the same reason. Inazuma Japan is struggling to fight without their strategist and captain but eventually Inazuma Japan lost by 2-1. Kurimatsu got injured in this match, and had to leave the team. In place of captain for this match was Kazemaru for the first half but he got injured so Hiroto replaced him for the second half.
This time, they fought against Unicorn, in which Ichinose is in, during the second half, Ichinose was removed because his injury was still not cured. The whole Unicorn fought tremendously but Inazuma Japan won by 4-3. This is Fubuki's debut at the Football Frontier International, world level, after he came back to the team.
This was a hard battle as in the second half, their true captain Hidetoshi Nakata returned and they were able to finish their tactic that is called Catenaccio Counter but it all ended up in a draw as Kidou was able to break through it. In the manga, Inazuma Japan won against Orpheus.
Red Matador (practice match)
In episode 102, Red Matador faces Inazuma Japan in a practice match because Inazuma Japan and Red Matador are in the same situation in the premilinaries (which is in the third position of each group). Inazuma Japan tied in the game versus Orpheus and claimed victory from Unicorn, but the Knights of Queen qualified Inazuma Japan for the semi-finals.
At first The Kingdom didn't play well because of Garshield but after he got arrested and their real coach returned, they fought against The Kingdom once more but this time with more spirit and they had a tough time against The Kingdom as everyone was feeling much better after Garshield was arrested but in the end they eventually won. Inazuma Japan won with a score of 3-2.
This is their final match in the FFI. At first they had a hard time because Endou couldn't master God Catch and couldn't stop Rococo's X Blast or get through God Hand X. But in the end, Inazuma Japan fights with all their might and won the finals breaking through Rococo's Tamashii The Hand G2 with Jet Stream. Inazuma Japan won with 3-2 and won the tournament.
- Inazuma Japan vs Neo Japan - In order to stay in the tournament, Inazuma Japan is challenged by Neo Japan. The members of Neo Japan mastered each player hissatsu techniques from their respective schools/teams, including powerful ones like Shin Mugen no Kabe, God Knows Kai and Triangle Z Kai.
