Soccer JRPG Anime Moving Into Prime Time TV

The upcoming Professor Layton film isn't the only anime from Japanese developer Level 5.

An animated version of Level 5's soccer RPG Inazuma Eleven is slated for prime time special in Japan this April. Until now, the cartoon series has been shown on Sunday morning at 9am. The original DS game was released last August in The Land of the Rising Sun.

Starting next month, the Inazuma Eleven anime will make the leap to prime time and be shown from 7:26 on Wednesday on TV Tokyo.
