Sena Kobayakawa, a quiet high school freshman with a knack for running, is forced into joining the Deimon Devils football team as the Superstar player from Notre Dame, Eyeshield 21. Along with Hiruma, Kurita, and all their fellow teammates, they must battle towards their ultimate goal, the Christmas Bowl!


Eyeshield 21 is the story of Sena Kobayakawa, a high school student who has no friends and no talent of any kind, until one day he is suckered into joining the American Football team, only to find out that he has a real knack for it. His lifetime of running away from bullies and being threatened into running errands for people has made him the greatest Running Back the Deimon Devil Bats have ever had. However he knows that his family and his neighbor would never let him endanger himself by playing this game, so he dons the mask of Eyeshield 21, claiming to be a legendary football student from Notre Dame, and he competes in games as he quickly makes friends in the hopes of making it to the Christmas Bowl.
