EyeShield 21 is a fun anime to watch with many qualities such as comedy, intense plot, characters, slapstick, thrills, suspense, and sports. I would recommend this program to any football fan. Personally, I do not like football, or almost any other sport, but this show is too good to turn down.
My favorite characters would be Hiruma and Sena. Hiruma is a natural tactician, and I like Sena's brave development from a shy gopher who has been bullied all his life to a football all star.... with a secret identity, of course. I think his eyeshield is hip.
So, if you're a sports fan and need a laugh with good story, EyeShield 21 is the show for you.
