Ashito has learned a little and lost a little. He has learned he is too far behind his teammates, and he has lost little sense of being a center of attention. Though he is not a narcissist by any stretch, he is a bit of an Egoist, with little to no understanding of others. The show rides too much on his strengths and weaknesses. It leaves out other characters unless there needs to be a conflict. Ao Ashi Episode 11 will have a similar scenario about Ashito learning how to get along with teammates or read the room. Though Ohtomo spelled out clearly what his faults were, the show still gave Ashito agency to make his own decision. Yes, it can end up being a long road of emotions and drama that could derail from the original goal anytime.
If the series were just about Ashito learning about his scenario in the new environment, it would be a slice of life. But we have football in the middle, aiming to change the soccer world. What the anime seems to be doing is building skills as well as relations among players. And with the next episode, we will see it happen through a practice match.
