Genre: Sports Manga
Format: Digital Scan
The game between the Devilbats and the Dinosaurs begins. Kurita has gone through some special training allowing him to stop Gaou for 5 seconds, giving Hiruma the chance he needs to throw the ball. But when the other members of the Dinosaurs start showing their abilities, it becomes apparent that this will become more than just a contest of strength between Gaou and Kurita.
As the Devilbats refuse to break or lose their spirit, Marco, quarterback of the Dinosaurs, sacrifices one of his players to give Gaou a chance to destroy Hiruma. Gaou breaks Hiruma’s right arm and the Dinosaurs expect the Devilbats to fold, like all the previous teams have done. Instead, Sena, Eyeshield 21, steps up and takes over as Quarterback.
Thus ends the volume.
I still do not like Gaou as a player breaker. That is not how football is played. So that just sunk my enjoyment of this volume.
Seeing Sena step up at the end was really good though. While I’m not looking forward to more Gaou in the next volume, I AM looking forward to Sena as Quarterback.
