Synopsis: 

 

The game between the White Knights and the Spiders happens and the White Knights crush the Spiders.

Which leads into the wildcard game between the Devil Bats and the Spiders. The Spiders are a kick team and with their own Eyeshield 21, they dominate the first half of the game. Sena puts off his eyeshield and plays as himself for the first time. If he wants to put that eyeshield back on, he'll have to overcome the Other Eyeshield 21.

 

 

My Thoughts:


 This was still a good volume, but it lacked some of the humor and some of the passion of the previous books, which is why I knocked it half a star.

 

This was a very different kind of game from what we've seen so far. It made for a good break and introduced some new skills and parts of the game. The Spiders are dominating so far and there doesn't seem much that the Devil Bats can do. Obviously the Devil Bats will have to change their strategy and each team member will have to improve.
