Seven new bronze statues of characters from “Captain Tsubasa,” a popular soccer manga and TV animation series, have been erected in Katsushika Ward, Tokyo.

Home to Yoichi Takahashi, the series’ creator, the ward installed a life-size statue of Tsubasa Ozora, the main character, in March 2013. The first Tsubasa statue was erected in a local park.
