    Eyeshield 21 is a manga about american football written by Riichiro Inagaki and illustrated by Yusuke Murata. It became an anime on Aril 6, 2005 and ended with 145 episodes on March 19, 2008. This anime is sponsored by NFL Japan and aired in countries like korea, Indonesia, Hong Kong and the Philippines.

    The story revolves around high school student Kobayakawa Sena who loves football and has a incredible talent when it comes to running, he has an intense agility. He had a remarkable talent in running because of bullies. In his younger days he was taught by his friend Riku to run away from bullies that is why he developed his talent. This caught the eye of Deimon High School Football Captain and quarterback Yoichi Hiruma who forces Sena to become the team’s running back. Hiruma and his friend Kurita who is also a member of the Devil bats swore to be in the Christmas bowl so they try hard to get teammates who are interested in playing American football.

    Slowly but surely the team recruited potential players such as Taro Raimon a baseball player who excels in catching, he became the team’s wide reciver and the so-called Ha-Ha Brothers who became the defensive linemen.The Deimon Devil Bats made a mark to the people watching them and made rivalry in other schools like the Ojo White Knights.

    Sena and the rest of the Devil Bats successfully entered the Chrismas Bowl which they have dreamed off and competed against the American football team led by Panther.

    The series concludes with Sena becoming the captain of the Deimon Devil Bats when Hiruma and Kurita go off to college. All of the main characters are shown in the final chapter to be in college or playing amateur-league football while maintaining a job.

    Watch the anime and read the manga, so you can experience the thrill of this American Football anime.

    So, my favorite genre of anime/manga is sports manga, as weird as that might seem to even myself - because I honestly don't care about any sort of sports at all in real life, but make it

    and it's my favorite. Eyeshield 21 is no exception - and, actually, the only sports

    that I've really read - oh, I've read a few chapters here and there of Kuroko no Basket, or Kenichi: the Mightiest Disciple, but I've never really sat down and just read the manga until Eyeshield 21.

    So, my favorite genre of anime/manga is sports manga, as weird as that might seem to even myself - because I honestly don't care about any sort of sports at all in real life, but make it

    that I've really read - oh, I've read a few chapters here and there of Kuroko no Basket, or Kenichi: the Mightiest Disciple, but I've never really sat down and just read the manga until Eyeshield 21.

    The story follows Sena, a small, oft-picked on boy who... accidentally ends up joining the football team. American football team. It feels weird to say 'American football' because I'm American, but it's stressed so much in-volume that I just sort of have to say it that way. And, like all sports anime/manga, it's so fun. It's so stressful, sometimes - though not really in this first volume - because even though nobody's

    going to die (I'd watch my step around Hiruma, though), it's just

    .

    I did read the first ninety or so chapters of this online before purchasing this, so this was sort-of a re-read for me - but really, I just remembered which characters I love and I get to look forward to watching them become those characters. People like Ishimaru, who I really only love because his name is Ishimaru. Shin, because of the eyebrows and the cute and the seriousness and I love. Jumonji, who isn't actually given his name in this volume and who develops into such a great person that I also love.

    But, really - sports manga is the best. And even if you don't think you'll be into it, you're

    wrong.

    This is my review for whole series.

    I have read some sport manga, and the main plot of this genre is cliché, from zero to hero. Although they all basically have the same basic plot, there are still new sport manga since Captain Tsubasa. Authors/creators of sport manga are inventing new ideas in premises, themes, or characters (oh, and illustration arts too, we are talking about manga). At a glance on the cover of the manga, everyone can guess that Eyeshield 21 offers a new main theme in sport man

    I have read some sport manga, and the main plot of this genre is cliché, from zero to hero. Although they all basically have the same basic plot, there are still new sport manga since Captain Tsubasa. Authors/creators of sport manga are inventing new ideas in premises, themes, or characters (oh, and illustration arts too, we are talking about manga). At a glance on the cover of the manga, everyone can guess that Eyeshield 21 offers a new main theme in sport manga: American Football.

    There are more than you see on the covers. Using another oftenly used plots (shy main character, delinquent students transform into tough athletes, dark background of some characters), this manga could prolong the plots finely without many arc stories.

    Unfortunately the arc stories after the national championships decline its quality, giving this manga a moderate ending.

    With the upcoming NFL season (2017) a few weeks away, there are more suitable reads than Eyeshield 21 but the humor and sports action make for a potent combination.

    The first seven chapters comprise the first volume and contains the first full game for our bunch of misfit characters. The translation is a bit iffy, par for the course for an amateur scan and translation, and the art is a bit dense at time. But it's still a fun read and this reader is moving on to the next volume.

    I almost dropped this after reading the first 2 chapters because it was so generic, but decided I should at least finish the volume. You know, since it's supposed to be a pretty good sports manga/anime and all. Also because I've dropped too many manga after reading only the first chapter or two, and a series really does need more of a chance than that.

    I don't really care too much about the sport myself. I had some fun playing it in grade 10 but that is the cap of my interest in it. But like I said in the introduction paragraph, this here is a bit of a modern classic in the sports manga genre, so being the sports lit connoisseur that I am you know I had to give it a go.

    Just like what I got from the first two chapters, it's still a pretty generic sports manga, but it does also have some interesting elements that keep me wanting to read more. The main character is actually pretty interesting--besides being generically wimpy--and the supporting cast is also pretty fun. I enjoyed how the MC actually wanted to be the team manager instead of a player, but because of the evil insane captain of the football team he's forced to play instead. That's technically a spoiler I guess, but in actuality it's extremely obvious that of course the super fast MC would play. I also like how they made his identity a secret, because that will definitely cause some juicy misunderstandings and awkward scenarios.

    If the American football aspect wasn't American enough for you, the art makes it feel even more American because of Yusuke Murata's cartoony style. I'm actually so torn on the art. The cartoon-yness has me shook but at the same time I love it. Especially the cartoony way the bodies are drawn. I read manga and expect to see a specific style of art, so when that expectation is subverted it's jarring, and not in a good way. But by the time I got to the end of the volume I got more used to it. I'm actually now looking forward to reading more of this series specifically so I can see more of the art.
