When the soccer match between the national team and the Wild Soccer Bunch ends up rock bottom 25 : 1, the dejected Wild Soccer Bunch splits up.

All of a sudden Fabi comes up with a new team: the Beastly Beasts. And they contest the Bunch as the world’s wildest soccer team ever. The Wild Soccer Bunch is up against their greatest challenge so far, an opponent more devious, more dangerous, more diabolical, more than even they had ever imagined – girls!!! And if it weren’t for Nerv, their greatest fan, the wildest of all showdowns would not be happening. But watch out Beastly Beasts, “The Wild Soccer Bunch” is back and you’d better believe it: they’re wild, wild, wild!
