Ashito's dreams were crashed when Fukuda asked him to switch to the defender position. In "Aoashi" Episode 14, Ashito will try to figure out if he really wants to play in this new position. The new episode is titled "It's Just Soccer."

The official website has released the synopsis, spoiler stills and promo trailer of Episode 14. Ashito's teammates are worried when they don't see him at the Team A selection announcement.

They are upset after the announcement and it is likely bad news for Ashito. Meanwhile, Tachibana, Otomo, Kuroda, Togashi and Asari go looking for Ashito, but they don't seem to find him.

Toward the end of the last episode, Ashito requested Fukuda to move him up to Team A. He added he was not sure if he could replace Yoshitsune right away but he was willing to give his best shot.

However, Fukuda dropped the bomb and informed Ashito that he cannot promote him just yet. He told Ashito to become a defender.

To be precise, Fukuda wanted Ashito to become a full-back as he never saw him as a forward.

Ashito was infuriated and even tried to physically hurt Fukuda.

"During the celebration dinner for the victorious match against Seikyo High, a soccer game comes on the TV at the BBQ restaurant, showing Kuribayashi making his J1 debut. Around the time Kuribayashi finishes his interview for his incredible play, Mibu receives a call from Date, telling him that there will be some member change between the A team and the B team since Yoshitsune injured himself. Ashito makes some great plays at the promotion game. Will Ashito be able to move up to the A team?" read the official synopsis of Episode 13, as per Crunchyroll.

The anime is based on the original work by Yugo Kobayashi. Its opening theme, "Mushin Hakusu," is performed by Alexandros, while the closing theme song, titled "Blue Diary," is by Rinne.

"Aoashi" Episode 14 is scheduled for release Saturday. Fans in the U.S. can tune into Crunchyroll to live stream the latest episode. The new episode will stream in Japanese with English subtitles.
