E21 83-84: Flea flicker

Eyeshield 21 episodes 83-84 review

E21 84

In episode 83, Musashi finally rejoins the team and kicks a field goal. Then the two teams get into a field goal-kicking contest. Their offenses must be completely useless at this point, because all they want to do is kick.

There’s also a play where the other team (Bando) tries an onside kick, and Musashi kicks the loose ball out of bounds. Such a play would be illegal. There would be a 5 or 10-yard penalty on Deimon, and Bando would get a rekick. In short, this just couldn’t happen in real life.

But in episode 84, something happens that could happen in real life. Sena takes a handoff, plunges up the middle, then as he’s about to be tackled, passes the ball back to Hiruma, who throws a touchdown pass to Monta. That’s called a “flea flicker,” and it’s one of the most fun plays in football to watch. Give the writers credit for getting it in here.

But Deimon’s still losing by 8. Can they come back?

Episode 83 rating (out of four stars): **1/2

Episode 84 rating: ***1/2
