E21 55-56: Sumo Brother

Eyeshield 21 episodes 55-56 review

E21 56

In episode 55, we have the classic “runaway” episode, where Komosubi (also known as Fatty Jr.) runs away from home and the team because he feels offended and blah, blah, blah. How many times have I seen this in fiction? It happens so often, that a character feels sorry for themselves and runs away. It’s overly predictable, and while it isn’t a bad episode per se, it’s just been done so many times.

As for the next episode, it’s a sumo wrestling contest which Komosubi wins by outmaneuvering an enormous opponent. It’s a bizarre episode, but ultimately pretty funny. Neither of these episodes had anything to do with football, though. So we aren’t any closer to the Christmas Bowl than we were last week.

Episode 55 rating (out of four stars): **

Episode 56 rating: **1/2
