Eye Shield 21

Has anyone else read this? This is really a shining (and still running!) gem in a sea of unappreciated sports titles (you geeky bastards...)... good times! There's got to be at least one other person who likes this on this board besides me.

Yeah. There is. Me. Because you got me addicted to it.

This is an awesome manga, and I'm looking for more. So far, I've been having difficulty finding more than the odd chapter here and there, and there's a full group of chapters I had to skip in the middle because I couldn't find anyone hosting them.

What chapter have they reached in Japan?

I don't know the exact chapter in Japan- I keep track by volume, and I believe the last volume was 9, and volume 10 is to be released shortly. Anyway, if you need help finding stuff, go to www.manganews.net for info on that sort of thing. There aren't any downloads there- just links and news. So... yeah!

Hey, that's a great site. Thanks.

Now if only it would be licensed over here!

Yeah.. I'm hesitant to say that, because seeing how Viz's latest line of Shonen Jump titles are going, I would definitely not want them licensing Eye Shield 21, due to the foul language that they'd probably take out. And everything else that's good about it.

Actually, I'm just being anal. I just don't want Viz to water it down for their SJ line, which is being aimed at kids right now

*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*

OMG!!! This crazy, because I just started reading Eye Shield 21 about a week ago and I must say that I love reading it!!! Every character isn't annoying which is a first. It's as if I can't wait to read the next chapter to see what happens. Another thing is that I love football, so this sits well with me too.

I've read up to 52 chapters and I must say that the story definately improves with each chapter. Hopefully we'll see Sena become a complete football and gain even more "God-like" speed. He's faster than Shin, but Shin may catch up with him which would be even more interesting.

Yeah, I'm echoing what dheu, this is definately one of the top sports manga out there. The best IMO would be Hajime No Ippo. Definately buy this manga or (download it! ) if you can.
