Manga chapters that cover G23[]

The chapters listed here are how they were ordered and named in the original tankobon. The bunko, SJR and other versions may use a different chapter division, page length and name depending on the edition. Chapter number and name in the original tankobon has priority over other versions. In older Captain Tsubasa manga, the chapters had the moniker "chapter of" (の巻) added to the name of the actual chapter. In the Golden-23 manga, with the exception of the "Prologue", the moniker has changed to "Goal" plus the chapter number prior to the name of the chapter (e.g. "Goal111"). This list doesn't add that information.

Chapter number in tankobon and magazine are not the same. This is because in magazine serialization the prologue is counted as chapter 1 while in tankobon chapter 1 is the following, making the prologue chapter 0, so all following chapters in the tankobon are one number below the numbering of the chapters in magazine (e.g. chapter 37 in tankobon was originally chapter 38 in magazine). Sometimes magazine chapters named differently from the tankobon have a different page length and have different starting and ending points. Due to this, these starting and ending points sometimes may also vary with chapters with the same name in both versions.
