    Eyeshield 21

    Post by Ruby on Thu Apr 05, 2012 10:12 pm



    The plot of Eyeshield 21 revolves around a weak and non-assertive boy named Sena Kobayakawa who enters the high school of his choice, Deimon Private Senior High School, where his childhood friend Mamori Anezaki attended school the year before. His only remarkable physical abilities are his running speed and intense agility, the result of a school life spent complying with the demands of bullies. His abilities quickly catch the eye of the high school's American football team captain Yoichi Hiruma, who forces Sena to join the Deimon Devil Bats as its running back.

    A sports anime/manga revolving around Football. Before you say "omg football ew", you should really give this a chance. I sat down and watched it because of the recommendation from a friend, and I was hooked. Not only that, but I actually learned the basics of the game, positions, etc.

    There are 145 episodes, and 333 Chapters. The anime stops mid-point of the story with 3 major games to spare, while the manga finishes those.

    A colorful cast in every team, and of course, Hiruma. You can find episodes of this on Crunchyroll. I recommend it for anyone who's interested in the sport, if anything.

    Discuss~

    This is in my top 5 manga. Not only did it give me a greater appreciation of football, it made me more on edge than any manga. My heart wouldn't stop pounding towards the conclusion of the Christmas Bowl.
    Characters, action and comedy are all solid. I can recommend this o anyone in a heartbeat.

    Sadly, I've only seen the first couple of episodes, but I loved every second of them.

    Heheh.

    This was my obsession for the longest time.

    And I don't have this avi+Sig for nothing.

    Hiruma is got to be my favorite anime character, ever.

    EDIT: I also happen to be that friend.
