    It's about American football.

    The anime has just begun to replace POT. I've read the manga n whether u know anything about American football or not, it's still damn HILARIOUS!!! :D

    I've heard it compared to a cross between PoT and Yakitate Japan. Is anyone subbing this?

    as far as translations for the manga a group called Ya-Ha is still translating but slow. As for subbing no one has picked it up yet. German Devils and abunai did the translations for the jump fest oav

    I read a volume or two of this and its good for a sports/action manga. I am not a big football fan either so you need not be a fan of football to get into this.

    It's a great manga, I only wish Ya-Ha would release some more chapters. It's been almost a month since the latest chapter.

    I've really enjoyed the first three episoded, but I am a big football fan so it was refreshing to me to see something this different.

    As a football player back when I was in high school, I was pretty glad to see the sport accurately described and just glad to see it in general, as I imagine football isn't the biggest sport in Japan (I'm assuming soccer and baseball are biggies). Sports mangas are great because you get to see two sides to any character--when they're on or off the playing field. Also, you pick up some handy info on sports and you get to see hilarious anime characters play them, all the better. Football is an extremely complicated sport, because there are so many play variations you can choose, routes to run, positions, etc. And Hiruma is the funniest kid evar. I know I've known one person like that...too bad he's the quarterback. o___O

    Perhaps some of my friends who are skeptical about anime/manga but are big football fans might be interested. *Runs off to show them.*

    Saw first episode, not impressed/interested, it's OK I guess... but then again I never liked football.

    Eh, I was pretty disappointed with the anime, so read the manga, it's infinitely better.

    If you have limited bandwith then I recomend that you use it to watch Eyeshield 21 even if you dont like football (which I kinda dont) Its still a very funny anime with interesting characters.

    LOL, definitely. Unfortunately for us Asians though, we're built more smaller and more slender, so unless we're pumping ourselves up big time it's hard to compete with huge Caucasian and African-American folks built along the lines of interstate trucks. But I was a rebel! They said stick to kung fu, which is fine, but I wanted to play FOOSBALL! ...So I ended up playing my junior year in high school, and got my @$$ handed to me. -_-

    I think football is a game for anyone though, granted you've got to be in excellent physical shape but if you're small and quick, you can be a running back or safety, or if you're huge, just be a lineman, etc.
