E21 63-64: Go Splash Go!

Eyeshield 21 episodes 63-64 review

E21 64

Hiruma calls time-out with 2 seconds left, and then comes up with a play. It’s a pretty popular one – Sena leaps over the pile into the end zone. But he’s going to precede it with 9 “huts.” In the NFL, we’d call this a cadence trying to get the opponent to jump offside. In any case, on the 9th “hut,” Sena takes the ball and goes for it. But he gets caught! He’s going to be tackled and not get the game-winning TD… but Komosuba saves the day! He tackles the tackler, and with that, Sena scores the touchdown to win the game, 24-23!

There was another episode with a white-haired pipsqueak aka Toshiro Hitsugaya, but I’m not really sure what the purpose of it was. It was all about episode 63 and the utter coolness of Sena’s game-winning TD run.

Jojo SC 15: Polnareff’s Bizarre Adventure Continues

Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders episode 15 review

Jojo SC 15

In this week of Polnareff’s Bizarre Adventure, Polnareff and “the old hag” get into it. First Polnareff is too stupid to realize that “the old hag” is an enemy, then finally he finds out once “the old hag” tries to kill him. “The old hag” is a Stand user, of course, and she uses her Stand to attack him, cutting his tongue. Polnareff licks the toilet in the whole mess, and he would have been dead if it weren’t for that meddling Jotaro.

In the end, Jotaro defeats “the old hag” while Polnareff gets made fun of for licking the toilet. And the Polnareff gang figures out that they had been standing in a graveyard the whole time. Then Hol Horse steals their Jeep, and now they’re stranded again. Just another week in Polnareff’s Bizarre Adventure.
