Manga chapters that cover RT[]

The chapters listed here are how they were ordered and named in the original tankobon and in the 2006 Shueisha Jump Remix (SJR). The Bunko, SJR and other versions may use a different chapter, page length and name depending on the edition. Chapter number and name in the original tankobon has priority over other versions. In previous Captain Tsubasa manga, the chapters had the moniker "chapter of" (の巻) added to the name of the actual chapter. In the Road to 2002 manga, the moniker is changed to "Road" plus the chapter number prior to the name of the chapter (e.g. "Road 143"). This list doesn't add that information.
