it’s got all your favorite sports anime character types!
-like the cute protagonist who tries his best but is still unnerved by all of the superhumans other characters playing the sport
-the rival (who doubles as the dark haired boy who’s allergic to showing facial expressions)
(bonus points: he’s also ripped as hell and def in a relationship with the protag)
-then of course you’ve got the jerkass, mind-game loving senpai with the secret heart of gold
-the literal piece of trash with no redeeming qualities what so ever
(guys im telling you- he still could kick aomine’s ass)
-the loud, excitable guy who’s scary good at what he does and the dark haired beauty that’s gotta keep him in line
-too many pretty boys to count
-and the cute ladies (mostly managers and cheerleaders but we do get a female quarterback)
seriously tho- eyeshield 21 is an A++ series with a funny cast, great plot, and it’s drawn by the same guy who redrew one punch man (yuusuke murata) so the art at the end of the series is especially hella
To any of my non-yugioh followers, if you ever want to give it a go, please, for the love of all that is holy, watch Zexal.
It’s really great, the storyline actually makes sense, the animation is gorgeous, there’s sparkley shit everywhere, there’s a duel that literally takes place on the moon, the protag has the best ass. YOU WILL SOB A THOUSAND NUMERON TEARS.
