FANTASTIC SERIES!!! The best sports manga ever created!,
This review is from: Eyeshield 21, Volume 1: The Boy with the Golden Legs (Paperback)
Eyeshield 21 is a story about the Deimon Devil Bats American Football Team and a student on this team named Sena Kobayakawa.
Sena was a generally spineless and was always bullied into being a Gopher for people throughout his time throughout school, His only friend being his senior, Mamori Anezaki. This all changed however when, off chance he was thrown into the Football club house by 3 bullies when he fails to get them some food. There he meets Ryokan Kurita and Yoichi Hiruma. Together the 3 of them recruit more people into the team mostly through Hiruma's method, and together they aim to attend the Christmas Bowl, an all-Japan Football Tournament.
Now generally this would've put me to sleep had it not been for the most craziest antics I have ever seen in manga... EVER! Just from opening up volume 1, you will enter a fantastic manga and be hooked on it for many year.
Funny enough, In the years this manga has been running in Shonen Jump in Japan (since 2002), the ammount of kids playing American Football in Japan has almost doubled. Now, yes this is Shonen Jump Advance, so its generally ages 16+ for the US and UK, but to Japan, this is easily kids stuff with the goofy characters.
I seriously advise anyone who sees this manga series on sale here or anywhere else to buy this, it is that good. I cannot find any fault with it.
