The Tearful Graduation Ceremony! ((なみだ)(そつ)業式(ぎょうしき)!, Namida no sotsu gyoushiki!) is the 126th episode of the Inazuma Eleven series.


All of the members of Inazuma Japan head home after their victory in the FFI. After being back at Raimon for some time (it seems as though a year has passed), everyone is getting ready for the graduation ceremony. Following the ceremony, a match is held between the original Raimon Eleven and the other members of Raimon that joined along the way. Some who joined in the Aliea Gakuen arc, like Tsunami and Fubuki are present, while the others joined before that, like Kidou and Ichinose. Toramaru is also present, despite not ever appearing on Raimon during the series, but only the Inazuma Japan team. Later when they are about to start the Teikoku Gakuen bus appears. Everyone is quite worried, but it is just Fudou, Genda, Sakuma and the rest of the team who came to watch.


All of Inazuma Japan came home to Japan and went back to their respective places with a warm welcome.

And now, the graduation ceremony starts. Endou Mamoru heads to the school along with Toramaru and Aki. All three remember the past, and Endou tells Toramaru how Raimon started out.

After reaching Raimon, Gouenji joins them and also tells another story about when he first wore Raimon's uniform. Kidou also comes in and states that he used to be an enemy but now, they're all friends. Then the three: Kidou, Gouenji and Endou go to their graduation ceremony to which Toramaru commented that the three where close friends.

The graduation ceremony begins and the principal started giving out the diplomas. When it came to Endou's turn, Endou saw that most of his friends where crying.

After the graduation ceremony, Endou goes to the soccer club and is nostalgic yet again. Endou states that the new captain for Raimon is Kurimatsu, which made Kurimatsu nervous. Toramaru comments that he will be the new striker for Raimon.

Fubuki, Tsunami, Kogure, Touko, Rika and some others come to Raimon so they could have a match with each other. Then a bus comes by and it is revealed that it is Teikoku Gakuen and they'll watch the match.
