Meiwa Higashi middle school redirects here. For the elementary school team, see Meiwa FC.
Meiwa Higashi middle school (明和東中学, Meiwa Higashi chūgaku) is a middle school located in Saitama. They took part in the 16th Middle School National Championship.
The team's captain is Kuniaki Narita, who was unfamiliar to Hyuga's playstyle, while Noboru Sawaki and most of the other members of the squad were former Meiwa FC members and familiar to Kozo Kira's teachings.
Meiwa Higashi went all the way to the semi finals, where they faced their former teammates Takeshi Sawada and Ken Wakashimazu. Kojiro Hyuga was benched because he abandoned his squad. Meiwa Higashi scored due to the Sliding Tackle Force, and Sawaki was the last one to tap it in. But they ended up losing because Kazuki Sorimachi and Wakashimazu both scored the winning goals.
