Eyeshield 21 episodes 67-68 review
In episode 67, Riku, also known as Rikky, the Seibu Wild Gunmen’s star running back, meets up with Sena and Mamori. Then we get a flashback about how they used to hang out together. Eventually Riku figures out that Sena is Eyeshield 21, and all of a sudden Sena has a new rival.
Seibu runs an offense called the “Quick-and-Fire.” Astute football fans would translate that as the “Run-and-Shoot,” an offensive style run by the Houston Oilers and Atlanta Falcons around the early 90s. On the first play of their game that starts in episode 68, Riku takes the opening kickoff back for a touchdown. Then Sena takes back the next kickoff for a touchdown! Clearly this is going to be some game. Can’t wait to see how this one ends. Oh, and Deimon? If you can’t kick an extra point, then go for two. It’s perfectly legal.
