A Brilliant Fight - S2-E5

Revealing mistake: When Tsubasa runs with the ball at the kickoff after Misugi scored, Misaki by him runs with a weird animation that is missing frames. Tsubasa is also quite literally flatfooted. (00:15:05)

The Brave Fighters from the North - S2-E2

Revealing mistake: The opening reprises the last part of the previous episode, but Oda (Furano's 11) 's reaction to Hyuga that tackles him from behind (which would be a red card, incidentally) is different. For some reason the shot when he turns around is mirrored, so he turns to his right, but he is running facing left in the next shot. (00:01:45)

Encounters in Semi-Final - S2-E1

Revealing mistake: After scoring, the Hitachi team advances to try to secure the result. During the progression of their forwards, the background with a ferris wheel repeats itself, and there's even a small audio gap before the crowd cheers repeat in a loop. (00:03:00)

I Can't Play - S2-E7

Revealing mistake: There are two rather blatant mirrored shots showing the Nankatsu supporters before the second half starts - no way to Miss the guy with the odd green hat and the colorful screamer by him. (00:10:30 - 00:11:40)

The Brothers Tachibana - S1-E22

Revealing mistake: In the very first move by Hanawa, Misaki and Tsubasa fold back before the twins' dynamic advance. Due to an animation error, Taro Misaki's hair in the wide shot flickers of a different color several times. (00:12:40)

The Mighty Shot - S1-E19

Revealing mistake: Taki dispossesses an adversary, and promptly two more run towards him. The animation skips during their run, with the advertising banners changing color between two frames. (00:06:25)

Where Is the Rival? - S1-E5

Trivia: When Sanae starts waving the flag she made for Tsubasa, in the background you can see a couple of grossly disproportional characters most likely drawn as a joke by some animator, and even the Road Runner. (00:14:55)
