Synopsis:

The Power of Team Work. Every single player on Japan’s team begins to really play their strengths as part of a team instead of as the “ace” of the team. And they tie the game at 45-45 and no time left. Instead of going into overtime, the NFL player who called the game decides to call it a draw. Nobody from either team is happy and they all go back on the field to play, unsanctioned, to decide who is the best. We never find out the outcome.

The book and series ends 2 years later, when all those players are now in college. Hiruma, Kurita and Musashi have all gone their separate ways, bent on fighting each other as only best friends can. Sena actually was accepted at the Notre Dame Highschool for his last year and makes his comeback to Japan as the fastest runner out there. Everyone else has gone to their various colleges and become stable members of their colleges’ football teams. And now the focus of everyone is The Rice Bowl.

The End.

 

My Thoughts:

I am glad that they didn’t show the ending of the game between Japan and America. No matter the outcome, it would have been the wrong way to end the series. We got to see 2 great teams battle it out and the battle was what we were supposed to see.

The final chapter, 2 years later, was just so full! Trying to fit in double digit characters lives was well done but it felt very rushed and I for one would have appreciated just a bit more of their personal lives being shown. However, it was good to see so many characters shown and the people I’ve grown to know over 37volumes moving on to their secondary education.

 

Thoughts on the Series as a Whole:

This series had NO bad volumes. Some weren’t quite as good as others, but not a single one left a bad impression in my mind. I think the manga-ka did a great job of balancing the individuals, especially Sena as Eyeshield 21 with the group. Football is a team sport and no ONE person is good enough to drag the team to victory. I would have like to see a bit more outside of the football stadium but considering what I got inside it, I’ll be thankful instead of wishing for something else. It was good.

I thought I would be writing a lot more when I decided to do this “series as a whole” thing, but honestly, I don’t have much to say. I’m a casual football fan and this still got me excited and entertained me. I read this series for a whole year from start to finish. I’m not sure what else can be really said.

I think the following picture really encapsulates what I liked about this manga. Its self-determination and can-do attitude.

Sena has come a LONG way from the little boy who ran away from bullies

  1. Congratulations on completing this series, man. It’s nice to see your love for it and how it never really disappointed you. I also like how the volume ended. I can’t really think about any other way it could’ve been done better. You’re honestly making me want to go through some of the basket-ball related animes (kuroko no basket or slamdunk) hahah Yeh, I’m a huge basket-ball fan. 🙂
