Well, I'm going to give this an attempt. Eyeshield 21 is one of my favorite manga ever (even with the lukewarm ending) and I'd like to share it with you all the night before the Big Game. Specifically, my favorite match in the whole series: Deimon Devilbats vs Shinryuuji Naga. Here's a little info on characters:

Kobayakawa Sena: Our protag. Grew up a weakling who avoided being beaten by bullies by becoming their errand boy. Running errands all the time while avoiding being late to class helped him to develop an insanely fast running speed. Conned into joining the Devilbats by Hiruma, but was moved by Kurita's kindness and dream to play in the Christmas Bowl, so he plays for the team as the mysterious Eyeshield 21.

Hiruma: Quarterback and main strategist of the Devilbats. He's a serial blackmailer which is how he's able to get funding for the team (and probably why he's allowed to carry fully automatic weapons around during games). He pushes for all-out offense for the Devilbats. He, Kurita, and Musashi were the founding members of the team.

Kurita: A gentle giant and the foundation of Deimon's line. He and Hiruma were going to go to Shinryuuji and play for the Naga, but his scores were too low so he was relying on getting in on a physical merit program. Agon, ace for the Shinryuuji Naga, resented Kurita's lack of speed though and applied for the merit even though he could have easily gotten in on test scores. Hiruma went with Kurita to Deimon rather than abandon his friend.

Monta: Sena's current best friend. He grew up idolizing a baseball player and got a glove from him, but he's such balls at throwing that he was kicked off the baseball team. But since Football values specialized players he's found a home as their receiver. He, Sena, and Komusubi form the Three Shrimp, since lack of height in football is normally a major disadvantage. They're doing a good job of rising about it though.

Mamori: Sena's best friend since childhood. She's very protective of him, but as he's gotten more confident she's seen that he can stand on his own. She's the manager of the team and has a very subtle budding romance with Hiruma.

Musashi: The third founder of the Devilbats: The 60 Yard Magnum. He dispelled the rumor by explaining while he has the power to kick a ball 60 yards, he lacks the control to reliably score a field goal at that distance. Then he did it anyway. He was originally forced to quit the team to help with his dad's construction business, but with Deimon's success and a plea from his father he was convinced to rejoin the team and see that they reach their final goal: Play at the Christmas Bowl. And this is their last chance, because after this year they'll leave Deimon.

The Ha-Ha Brothers: Not actually brothers, they're three thugs who were the primary tormentors of Sena. Hiruma blackmailed them into joining the team and they eventually found they liked it. Their leader is Jumonji, and he's fiercely protective of Kuroki and Togano. Even though they probably are holding him back from achieving better things, they're his friends and he'll always defend them.

Yukimitsu: A total brain that spent almost his entire school career too busy cramming to play any sports. But after watching Deimon play an exhibition match to attract recruits he tried out. Tragically, Yukimitsu has done so little to develop his body that he simply doesn't have the stamina to play a full game of football. He's been on the bench the whole season, but he's put in a lot of hard work and may just get a chance to shine.

Komusubi: A short linemen who speaks the language of strong men, that only truly strong men can understand. He sees himself as Kurita's apprentice and is all around amazing. Seriously, best character in the manga right here.

Natsuhiko Taki: the biggest idiot. But he's got really versatile skills and a good attitude, so he's a great Tight End for the team. But seriously, he's such a dumbass.

Suzuna Taki: Natsuhiko's little sister. She's much smarter and is Sena's gal pal, but it seems he may want to eventually make her his girlfriend from the ground up. She's head cheerleader for Deimon.

Doburoku: Coach and trainer for Deimon, he originally trained Kurita, Hiruma, and Musashi. They ran into him again in America and he helped them complete hell training: pushing a big rig from Texas to Vegas. He used to be a legendary player in Kantou along with the coach of the Ojo White Knights.

Well that's all the notable players for Deimon. In Shinryuuji theres:
Agon: The Ace for the Naga. He has god-speed impulse, which is a very manga way of saying that he's got really good reflexes. He's totally amoral and full of himself, stating that the perfect football team would be 11 of him. He only shows any respect for Ikkyu, the Shinryuuji receiver, who he admits is a genius at catching.

Unsui: Agon's twin brother. He lacks god-speed impulse, so he's trained very hard to be good enough to play on the same team as his brother. They don't like each other at all, but Unsui's made it his mission to see that Agon doesn't get so lazy that he fails to make a name for himself.

Ikkyu: The receiver for Shinryuuji and considered the best receiver in the region. Looks like Vegeta. Shy around girls because Shinryuuji is an all-boys school.

It should be noted that Shinryuuji is considered the second strongest team in Japan, and is undefeated in this particular tournament for several years. But Deimon can't lose to them or they won't ever make it to the Christmas Bowl.

This was such a great match. Always love Monta's catching battles and Yukimitsu got to shine so much. Plus, it seemed like a match vs real monsters even more than when they played Teikoku, Ojo for the second time, and the Dinosaurs (need a refresh on where they were from).

Its not only that. Seattle is the most penalized team in the league, head coach cheated in college and have the second worst bandwagon fans next to the Patriots. The Broncos are being shoved down everyone's throats as the good guys, what with Peyton coming back off that injury and having such a great year.

"Given Seattle’s famous climate, local weather forecasters have had to coin a word for non-dreary interludes: they are “sunbreaks.” When the rain stops and the clouds lift even for a few hours, locals pounce. Offices empty; parks fill up. It’s the upside of bracing for misery: Any ray of hope, no matter how transient, is a cause for celebration. That’s what I think about when I see school buses full of Marshawn Lynch jerseys and scowling Seahawks logos fashioned out of Post-its on high-rise windows: We are enjoying a sunbreak. And who knows? We’re not supposed to hope, but maybe this is the team that ends the heartache. Maybe, after almost 40 years, the clouds are finally lifting."

Dinosaurs was a much better game than Nagas as well as best game in the series and where it should've ended. Marco is a better villain than Agon, Gao and Hiromi are better than all of Agon's team combined.

Injuries happen in Football. Gao wasn't going out of his way to injure players, he was tackling normally. It just so happens he can rip steel out of concrete casually.

I want to say Habashira because it takes longer to come to fruition and felt like a harder struggle for him than for Sakuraba. Habashira didn't have a team that would work with him with his ambitions like Sakuraba did.

The Dinosaurs might've actually had an easier time than The Devilbats with Gao. They don't have an answer to him the like Kurita and if he'd broken a single member of The Alexander's line-up, I don't think they'd have the morale to keep up.

Although I think The Devilbats and The Alexanders are superior teams to The Dinosaurs, I'd say that it all comes down to how The Alexanders respond to Gao, and if anything was made clear, it's that the absolute will to win is probably the best response to him. Something The Alexanders seemed to take for granted.

>>101380909
It was 3 of them iirc: Gaou, Marco, and that cornerback with the slender arms.

I'm not necessarily disagreeing with Shin being able to handle Gao, but just to play Devil's Advocate and try to rationalize an explanation. Shin's offense could probably knock down Gao, but Gao's offense could probably destroy Shin's arms. And then Gao's second offense could probably destroy Shin's legs when he gets up again because two limbs wasn't enough to stop him.

I'm just making guesses here though, because I don't want to doubt Hiruma.

If you remove Agon from Shinryuuji or Shin from Ojo, Demon would have destroyed them without much effort. The teams probably wouldn't get weakened as much as Hakushu but they just wouldn't be a match for Demon anymore.

The ending was really bad, I would say the manga got pretty bad after they played against the dinosaurs. Sena also was a pretty disappointing main character, I've always hoped for him to grow up, but he remained some weak, easily intimidated faggot until the end. Im also kinda sad there wasn't more of Suzuna, easily best girl.

The side characters are what made this manga so magical and Habashira was my favorite character, really liked his development.

The peak was definitely the Naga match, then it slowly loses its quality, they were running out of interesting ideas, good focus on characters and Murata's art was getting weaker and weaker (his art was at his best during the Poseidon match)
>Sena also was a pretty disappointing main character, I've always hoped for him to grow up, but he remained some weak, easily intimidated faggot until the end
This one is pure bullshit.

She didn't have any character development so I guess she was really just eye candy support.

W-welcome! (I'm glad that this has inspired you to pick the manga back up. The Dinosaurs match is amazing and a huge bit of growth for Sena).

>>101384465
>Monta has to face off against his hero's own child.
And that still doesn't make Taka a good character. At all.
>>
>>101384523
Delinquent Death Blow is very against the actual rules, right?
>implying Jumonji cares

There's so much shit here that would get flagged in a real football game. Agon would have been ejected the instant he karate-chopped that fucker.

>>101384465
You do realize that this is super lazy writing and nothing more than a shallow show off? Just like the girl quarterback thing.

IIRC they're allowed to pull on uniforms in Japan.

i'm curious, what do you think murata could have done to make the alexanders better characters (other than completely rewriting their role in the story)

Jumonji best lineman
>>
>>101384716
You are in America, too as long as you're not an offensive lineman and you're not grabbing near the neck or arms.
>>
>>101384785

>>101384757
Murata didn't write it.
>>
>>101384823
>>
>>101384836
oh, he didn't? well my question still applies...
>>
>>101384855
>>
>>101384885

>>101384757
Not enough character development for any of the linemen.
>>
>>101384915
Hiruma/Mamori is excellent

It's nice and subtle. It gets advanced in like, maybe 3 panels a match. But by the Dinosaurs match there's almost as much sexual tension as anxiety over who will win the match.

Bullshit, Mamori is pure.

>>101385143

>>101385171

The purest beauty.

Why is Mamori-neechan so perfect?

Are these tears manly? Or does Unsui need to believe in himself for once?
>>

Not waiting until the very last minute to introduce them would have definitely help shaping them into less shallow characters.

It's fucking field goal range, it should be pretty fucking obvious.

>>101385980
What?

18 is the same as 21 though, it's still a 3 possession game.

>>101386037

Only 9 left.

Well guess I'll need to make another thread. Think I may take a short break first though.

>goku still triumphs over vegeta in the end
It's just sad.
