Captain Tsubasa episode 34, set for release on May 26, 2024, at 4 pm IST, is expected to continue the match between Japan and Germany in the final of the Junior Youth Tournament.

Episode 32 focused heavily on the half-time team-talk, featuring both teams on their respective sides and how they were handling the 1-1 scoreline. Furthermore, this most recent episode showed how Roberto Hongo decided to help Tsubasa with one final lesson and also showed Hyuga having another moment to shine in the competition as a whole.

Therefore, Captain Tsubasa episode 34 is likely to chronicle more developments of the match, while showcasing Germany's playing style and how Japan reacts to those situations.

There is also a chance that the upcoming episode will focus heavily on the second half, and how Japan can take the match away from the Germans while perhaps making some changes from the source material, as was shown in the most recent episode with one of Wakabayashi's saves.

Recap of the previous episode

One of the most important moments of the most recent chapter was when Katagiri handed Tsubasa a message from Roberto to check a page from a book of coaching tips he gave to him in order to prepare the protagonist for the second half.

This would prove to be a pivotal moment as Japan would score the second goal of the match and show they can compete with this European giant.

The Japanese side showed through Hyuga that they could score against Deuter Muller more than once, resulting in a moment of frustration for Karl-Heinz Schneider, Germany's top player. Tsubasa also had the opportunity to show more of his individual technique in this episode as well.

A moment that most readers of the manga noticed was that one of Genzo Wakabayashi's saves from the source material was removed in this adaptation.

It was a save he made by using his iconic hat, which a lot of fans loved but was also divisive due to being something very unlikely to take place in a football match.

Captain Tsubasa episode 34 could continue to develop the match between Germany and Japan, especially considering how recent episodes have been building the former as a powerhouse.

It is also worth pointing out that Tsubasa and his friends are bound to have a greater role to play in the coming minutes of the match, especially when considering that they have scored against the Germans.
