Neo Japan (ネオジャパン) was a short-lived team created by Hitomiko and Saginuma Osamu, to challenge Inazuma Japan, Japan's representative team. It involves many of the old opponents of Raimon. There was a match between the two "still-to-be" national teams. Though Neo Japan had evolved many old moves and were made much stronger, they lost to Inazuma Japan. In the FFI, Saginuma sent Inazuma Japan a letter, giving them their support, but warned them that if they grew weak, he would challenge them again.
