• February 18th: Eyeshield 21 Awareness Week!
BUY THE MANGA | WATCH THE ANIMERead the Manga Online (at your own risk)
If you love this series, please support it! Believe me, there’s no better feeling than having the actual manga on your bookshelves. You can buy Volumes of Eyeshield 21 on Amazon.com, or any other site that sells manga, such as Barnes & Noble, rightstuff and other places! It doesn’t matter where you buy it, so long as its yours to own! ♥
This is another group dedicated to the series Eyeshield 21. What makes us different? No romance. Yup, that's right. We just want to celebrate ES21 in it's natural form: where friends are friends, rivals are rivals, and managers are managers. Eyeshield 21 wasn't a series that had focused on romance, so this group won't be focused on it, either.
By the way, I don't hate romance (I run my own ES21 pairing-specific group), but I do believe we could attract more interest in the series by leaving romance out of the equation.
Our group's goal is to revive the ES21 fandom and recruit even more fans of the series! So if you're a fan of ES21, old or new, please join the group! We can't let this fandom die. Though it ended in 2009, Yusuke Murata still draws artwork for it on his twitpic account. Let's follow his example. ;]
Group Rules | F.A.Q
(Please read before submitting into the gallery! If your artwork is denied, you're sure to find the reason below.)
This group is a romance-free zone - even for my favourite pairings. Why? Because there are plenty of other ES21 groups that accept romances: #aishi-love, #ES21-FanClub, #EyeShield-21-Club and, of course, the groups dedicated to specific pairings. Since there is so much focus on romance in other groups, our group's focus will be on what truly makes Eyeshield 21 great: the characters, the friendships and the rivalries.
Note: You can draw your two favourite characters together, but they can't display romantic actions with one another. (E.g: kissing, cuddling, straddling, hand-holding, etc.)
ARTWORK MUST BE MADE BY YOU
Only artworks created by you, by your own hands, will be accepted into the gallery. This means:
• NO images from the manga - coloured or not. We only want fanart created by you, from your own hands. It doesn't matter if your drawings aren't that great - because really, my own aren't that great either. I believe we can all improve, however, through practice, patience and more practice. So please don't submit manga/anime/traced images onto DA: upload your own artwork. Believe me, you'll feel better for it. ♥
• NO images from the anime.
• NO traced images.
• And NEVER submit drawings made by another person without having expressed permission (from the artist) first.
ALL MATURE CONTENT MUST BE MARKED AS SUCH
Please use mature tags whenever it's appropriate. Failure to do so will prompt immediate removal of your submission from the group.
NO OCs ("ORIGINAL CHARACTERS")
Sorry, but no... like romance, there are plenty of other groups you can submit those into. Let's give some love to the lesser known characters of the series: like the narcissistic Shun Kanzaki (White Knights), or the adorable Senri Medjikara (Shinryuuji Nagas), or the crafty Jinka Hashi (Bando Spiders). There's plenty of characters to choose from!
NO CHARACTER BASHING
Seriously, there's no need for it. The girls of ES21 especially doesn't deserve it, so please, if you don't have anything nice to say, keep it to yourself. Don't bring your hate here.

It's very well put together, and offers a lot of fantastic ES21 goodness for our eyes, hearts and minds to enjoy! And not only is it for existing fans of the series, but it was also - mainly - written to introduce others to the series as well. So e-mail the link to all of your friends - even the ones that aren't too keen on sports. If this doesn't get them hooked, nothing will!
