Leonardo Silva ( レオナルド・シルバ Reonarudo Shiruba?) is the seventeenth episode of the Area no Kishi anime. It aired on April 28, 2012.
Kakeru visits Ayaka who explains his change in personality was influenced by Suguru's heart (with Iwaki overhearing by coincidence). Elsewhere, Leonardo Silva watches a recording of Kakeru's previous game and decides to visit him (as he also knows the truth behind Kakeru and Suguru's accident).
That night at the park, he challenges Kakeru to a game of keep away in an attempt to call out Suguru's personality. He succeeds, but Nana's interference causes Kakeru to return to normal and perform the mythical feint, giving Silva two goals. Satisfied, Silva departs and reminisces about his first meeting with Suguru and how they never concluded their match against each other to determine who is the better soccer player.
