E21 71-72: Running down the clock

Eyeshield 21 episodes 71-72 review

E21 71

I’m back to reviewing random anime! First, it’s Eyeshield 21. In these episodes, the back-and-forth scoring continues. Deimon was down by 15 points, but they keep on cutting into the Seibu lead, only to have the Wild Gunmen score again and widen the gap.

With three minutes to go, the Devil Bats are down by 9, and Suzuna has turned into Hiruma, firing the gun and all. The Wild Gunmen are trying to run out the clock, but stupidly they call a pass. This is almost as bad as the Seattle Seahawks throwing the ball from the 1-yard line in the Super Bowl. Of course, the pass ends up intercepted, and Sena takes it back for a touchdown.

Now the Devil Bats are down by 3 with very little time left. How do they close the gap without the ball… and without a kicker, for that matter? There’s no way to onside kick if you don’t have a good kicker! This ought to be fun.

Episode 71 rating (out of four stars): **1/2

Episode 72 rating: ***1/2
