[HorribleSubs] Eyeshield 21 (01-145) [480p]
alright! I know your in here /sp/!
Lets talk about this anime.
wait?! there is an anime about American football?!
how badly did it fail in Japan?
This show actually inspired me to be a running back.
I wasn't too bad. Never started but I did play and score a few TD's.
>anime about football
What do you think?
make it lolis playing football, then I will watch.
There is plenty of anime about footba- oh you mean handegg?
The manga is better
u wot m8
I didn't know Frank Gore used to be white
japan is bretty gudd at the football
Man the anime sucked.
I don't understand your image
The only thing I didn't like about the anime was that the helmets dropped very often. It makes me wonder how many concussions they have.
They are but the American team is held back a bit since professional players aren't allowed to play in the IFAF. Most of the American team is made up of former college players
An anime about American Football got 145 episodes............
THIS IS CHALLENGING EVERYTHING I THOUGHT I KNEW
I'm just going to assume it was nothing but cg or something
Do you even rugby m8?
>all these new
I know it's b8 but it's good b8.
How many countries even play that game anyway?
The power of Murata.
>mfw America, Canada, Australia, and Japan use the term Soccer.
>watching eyeshield instead of reading the manga
It's just because they suck playing it
forgot my image of IFAF members
Professionally? US and Canada
There used to be NFL Europe, which had the most success in Germany. Germany, Neatherlands, Spain, and UK had teams.
NFL also plays games in London, which are usually sell-outs despite the one-sided match-ups.
They'll probably send a franchise to London sometime in the next decade or so. It makes too much money not to do so.
Try reading the manga if you actually one to experience that one, I hear that anime was on the side of sucking.
Sorry the civilized world isn't entertained by your boring African past time, Euro-poor
This show greatly enhanced my understanding and appreciation of American Football. I use it to help others understand the game.
The anime wasn't bad, but the manga is more complete. Neiher one is exactly stellar at accurately portraying America though
>tfw nobody watched europe's superbowl
surprise surprise. the jews are in it too. It's all clear now
But Europe is more civilized than America
Just call it American football, and admit it's far better as well if you want.
That shit isn't an egg, and I do believe the people that came up with the sport can name it whatever they want. Call it Eggball all you want but that's a sucky nickname all around.
Do it for her
"Soccer" just means "association football" in the first place. The term was used in America/Canada because gridiron football became popular in America first
No composure in the pocket, 0/10 would not draft
who 12th man here?
They use their hands to play with an Egg so Handegg
they don't use any foot here
seattle pls go
You use your feet to kick the ball on occasion, but it's not an egg so it's not handegg with that kind of logic. Shit isn't even the right sort of shape for an egg unless you just want to push a lame name.
Fuck Seattle fans. And take your roidraging "Best Corner in the Game" with you. Go Buncos.
Texas A&M pls go and stay go
the image swap bug sure does come up at the most amusing times
Seattle person here, I'm rooting for the broncos because i like their playstyle better.
>seahawks have the best defense
>broncos have the best offense
Broncos will win. This is just like deimon vs oujou.
>all these people never saw ES21 before
what is this shit?
Is this /a/? Is this reallife?
I got into eyeshield because i heard that one of the players is a crazy gun addict.
and it was the best choice i made
I just think Seattle has a bad offense. Wilson has been shit most of the second half of the season. Denvers been getting really good at defense, especially the run. Lynch is the only trouble Denver has.
Good luck, though.
Is this series as crazy as the image on >>100876820 suggests?
Honestly, yeah it kinda is. Apply shounen tropes to football and then add it interesting characters. Welcome to Eyeshield 21.
Yeah, their offense is bad.
And yes, it's crazy and entertaining.
the manga was a great piece of work. anime shit over itself
The series is a combination of real life rules and shounen rules. It sticks to what's possible in real life, but at the same time really stylizes it to appear crazy.
Shit like that happens all the time as a visual metaphor of sorts; like when someone preforms the Trident Tackle and their arm looks like a trident for a moment. Nothing in the series goes outside of what's humanly possibly(for the most part), yet at the same time it's extraordinary in it's own ways.
It's the greatest sports manga of all time
Football! Not kickball!
They also play a high school team from 1950s America
who eagles fan here?
I'm just sad they didn't go further, love them to death though.
That futbol players are pussies that need to fake injuries just to score a goal.
Favorite es21 moment?
Mine was Sena's reveal.
Read the manga, the anime is pretty shit
When Sena makes that rasta dude fall to the ground by pulling his helmet. One of the most satisfying moments ever.
It also remains Murata's best manga, in my opinion. And that's not to denigrate his other manga at all, because he's a very good cartoonist. It's just the best of the best.
I want to see Sena get drafted by the Oakland Raiders
and promptly get murdered by JJ Watt
I used to watch it here on Mx
what was the name of that demon guy with guns?
Best sports manga ever.
This was a pleasant surprise. Now I have an excuse to watch this and Slam Dunk again.
TOP FUCKING LEL
That's too funny.
I like that the manga didn't underplay lineman.
Nobody ever cares about us.
thank you for letting me know this exists
Kurita is great
It's a 4:3 era series, would you really want an upscale?
you know what i loved about E21? we all know how over the top sport shonens are with their techniques and moves but in E21 they actually explained how things are done, why the devils bat ghost makes your oponent feel like you've dissapeared, why Shin's spear/trident was called that, why monta was able to do the devil backfire and why phanter was so fucking broken.
its rare to see series like these be able to explain how their "superpowers" work, except with Riku's rodeo drive stampede, that shit made no sense.
i didnt give a shit about football before i read/watched this series, now i can watch a match and understand wtf is going on while actually enjoying it, the same thing happened with Ippo and Boxing., didnt happen with Baseball or Soccer shows because i used to play a lot of that when i was a kid so i already knew all the basics.
>Missing murata's godly drawings
Stick to the manga
Suddendly i feel the urge of reading another time those 37 volumes sitting in my library.
