E21 57-58: David and Goliath

Eyeshield 21 episodes 57-58 review

E21 58

These were basically just two episodes of constantly playing up the fact that Komosuba, Monta, and Sena are much smaller than the Poseidon team. We have it reinforced over and over again that the three of them are short, and that the Poseidon team is tall. At first, it’s an okay storyline, but then it gets played up so much that it becomes tired and repetitive. The fact is, Deimon isn’t even trailing in the game. They’ve kept the Poseidon team out of the end zone. So why are we still hammering it home that Deimon is so much smaller than their opponents?

These weren’t bad episodes, per se, just rather repetitive ones. Hopefully there’s a satisfying outcome to all this.

Episode 57 rating (out of four stars): **1/2

Episode 58 rating: **1/2
