Appeal Command Tsubasa’s Passion





You can swap up to five players in your group.

This move has better usage than “Misugi’s Analysis” but its usage count is lower. Because of the limited usage count, it is important to use it at the correct time.




You are a first grade student of Nankatsu MS, but Tsubasa and his teammates discovered your talent and you became one of the Eleven.




Communicate with other players by using Tsubasa’s Appeal Command!
This command can switch five players among the appeal group. You can concentrate on increasing Friendship Rank.
