Eyeshield 21, Ookiku Furikabutte Recommendations
This is also a sports anime, that has an ace player that seems to fear the world, while working to overcome it all and become what everyone else already sees in him. While I would love to say, there are obvious undertones, there aren't really, BUT, as with any fandom that has a mostly male cast, there's plenty of personal undertones to be drawn.
Despite Eyeshield 21 involving people with super human powers and abilities it links closely with Oofuri. Both series involving teamwork and trust in one another along with having a timid main character who becomes more assure of himself. And both series have a good enough amount of character development as well despite Oofuri being much shorter then Eyeshield.
And of course both series involve sports. Oofuri being about baseball and Eyeshield being about football.
This two animes HAVE ALOT in common if you ask me. Sena and Mihashi are just two useless sport players, but if you use them right, . . . . BAMM!!. . . . they are the BEST, PERFECT and so on cool stuff !!
Sena is REALLY COOL specially the last ep.
Mihashi is REALLY CUTE, *but sturbon sometimes* cuz he looks like a kitty and at the same time a kid whom you can make happy with just candy. XDDD
Well what i found most interesting with both Ookiku and Eyeshield was their main character and their evolution as a person and as one in the team. The team dynamic and the person evolving was what drove me to enjoy these kind of anime.
Sure i had not interest in baseball nor american football before, but these anime taught me a whole lot about the sport. :) Also I liked how the main character started to get more and more confident in their ability and their team. :)
Both are sports anime with lots of hilarious and serious movement.The main charecters of both the anime(sena from eyeshield and ren from ookiku furikabutte) are similar to each other.They both were bullied frequently and lacked self confidence.
