    Default 266th Down!

    Rycolaa's released the chap, you know where to find it.

    Anyways, seems like the match will finally end soon (yay!). Kisaragi has been defeated, now Sena and Kurita have to finish getting their acts together for the win.

    good part of the chapter ? hiruma demonstrating how brilliant he is, once again.

    bad part of the chapter ? monta winning against kisaragi, for no apparent reason. in fact, if monta's catching power is greater, kisaragi shouldn't have won against monta in the first place.

    seriously, i wish the manga placed more emphasis in tactics than 1v1's, 'cause it's starting to get repetitive: a subset of sena, monta, hiruma and kurita gets beaten in 1-on-1's and they're about to lose; they win their 1-on-1's, and turn the game around.

    it wasn't as bad in the shinryuuji match, since they had to use actual tactics (rather than the horribly cliched desire-to-win-powerup) to prove their superiority: sena faked an attack, then attacked for the blind spot; monta's match wasn't some simple catch game showndown; hiruma created an awesome diversion to create a substantial lead on agon.

    and even though kurita's was simple strength-vs-strength, it meant much more in that game, considering how agon - and the shinryuuji administration - screwed him over in the past.

    sorry, but this chapter really represents all that is wrong with ES21 in this entire arc.

    I completely agree. The emphasis on individual players has screwed up the nature of football and really turns this manga into shonen overkill. But, the author forced this upon himself once he replaced the quarterback with someone who can't throw (severely limiting the brilliant strategy that has characterized Deimon matches). Also, the absence of Hiruma and later poor condition of Hiruma doesn't exactly help the strategizing.

    I'm trying to remember the rules on football, but wouldn't Kisaragi have been called on pass interference since he didn't go for the ball but rather for Raimons hands. It's one thing to strip the ball from a player once he has caught it, but if you attack the receiver before he has the ball completely in his hands then it would be pass interference. I think.

    Penalties? In my Eyeshield 21?

    We're talking about a match where the other team has a player who consistently injures other players and a quarterback who returns after having his arm broken.

    I think we've kicked logic to the curb already.
