*revives old thread* It's alive! It's ALIIIIVE!!

Seeing as how this series now has 4 volumes released Stateside, I'm thinking it's a good idea to get some advertisement out there.

Eyeshield 21 is honestly the best sports manga I've read. Why? Because it has Hiruma, which means it has wacky, off-the-wall, manipulative and conniving comedy in it that other sports manga just don't have. It's got its drama too, and action, and the good messages that most sports manga have (such as finding courage in yourself to face your fears, and not giving up even in the face of defeat, etc.) in one form or another. The characters are awesome. But it's first and foremost a comedy... and there aren't many series as hilarious as this. This manga makes me laugh out loud every time I read it, no matter how many times I read it.

I'd really recommend it. Which means, you must go out and hunt it down now.... or else..... *pulls out her Book of Threats*
Run away!
