What is it? I don't really want to waste bandwidth cause I have practically none.
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!!!
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
.... whoever said that, needs to be smacked and then killed by Hiruma. Sersiouly. --;
Heh Thanks. XD Suddenly wish I'm not hunching my back scanning those chaps. XD But got to admit the slowness.... ah well :3
Anyway, eyeshield .. RULES. OMG. If someone dissed it cause it's football and they haven't even watched or read it, I'm going to smack them wtih a FOOTBALL.
My roomate loves it... so you can take that how you will
I have heard this show will be good. WHo is translating?
its about this kid thats really fast at running under conditions but is also very weak and his kinda forced to join the american football club for his school
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 saw the US preview in one of my cousin's shonen jumps. I really dont like manga about sports.
they already have up to 133 chapters
?? 133???? oh mann... i ES21 deserved to be scanlated fast... its freaking funny.
Is there any group that scanlates this into English?
you can get it at Link removed too..
Well manga about sports tend to best IMO... well the few sports manga I've read(probably about 5) they were very good to awesome.
i'm starting to like sports manga/anime. i do hope the anime can improve it as time goes by.. compared to manga, the first 3 episodes aint what i expected..
Its an anime about football. I read the first chapter in shonen jump, it looks funny to me.
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.
i'm starting to like american football.. XD
if you are interested there is an ES21 fc :
Eh, I was pretty disappointed with the anime, so read the manga, it's infinitely better.
ya-ha released ch 52 of es21 today, if I find a link i'll post it but otherwise gotta go to irc
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.
You can always go to Link removed to find the latest Eyeshield chapters.
thank youing i've been looking for those....
i'd like to play foot ball with the japanese...
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.
i'm fast and able to jump high..... but i'm lazy.
so i play corner back.
