Game Over For Eyeshield 21

Eyeshield 21 to end on Monday.


Sad news for all of you who are football fans out there. Riichirou Inagaki and Yuusuke Murata’s football manga Eyeshield 21 will end its seven-year run on Monday, 6/22. I say it’s sad news, but it really isn’t. Every manga needs to end, and even though Eyeshield had a long run (and maybe should of ended awhile ago), its time has come. It has spawned an anime, videogames, and has been brought over to America; not too shabby for a sports manga.

I haven’t gotten this far in the manga yet, but from the looks of it the manga is wrapping up without leaving any cliffhangers; though what I don’t know is if it’s wrapping up ‘nicely’. I enjoyed Eyeshield 21, it had some great characters, it was actually funny, and it portrayed a subject not often found in anime/manga. Don’t ignore it if you hate football; because I still am no fan of the game, but I do love Eyeshield 21.

Now let’s hope other Shonen Jump series learn something from this and finish up as well.

Ummm, Len, Eyeshield 21's manga already ended on chapter 333 this past week.

According to the ann article i cited it says monday. It doesn't say last monday, or this monday, just monday. So I assume its next monday.

This made me think of all the different manga I'm reading and how a lot of them are still running. Actually, I know that at least three of them have ended but the volumes haven't been released IMC yet.

Haven't read Eyeshield 21, but have seen the first episode.

Must have been an epic ending.

I love Eyeshield 21.  I wish they would release more episodes here.
