What do you guys suppose is the best ending for ES21?
Would you like a soft aftermath closeout like Slam Dunk?
where Sena achieves "best runner" status after a final match
Or a poignant look back at how far Deimon has come and stuff to come like GTO?
where Sena, Monta, and Chuubou welcome the new Freshies to Deimon (with Hiruma as a manager)
Or maybe a flash-forward 6 or so years to see Torakichi and the golden generation that inspired him?
I would like to see everyone depressed, because Hiruma and the others are gone...
Then Hiruma would appear at the club, screaming and saying "WHAT THE HELL DO YOU THINK YOU ARE DOING?"
because he blackmailed the principal to change the rules.
maybe flash forward when some of the allstars (some of Deimon, but I'm thinking of Shin, Gaou, Agon, etc) make it to the pros. Not to mention Taki (they did say he only needed experience way back at the tryouts).
I like Sherlock Holmes' ending too though.
Actually a fanfic I came by. (It was Hiruma x Mamori and Sena x Suzuna... I know: >,<") It had an ending with Hiruma and some other players ending in the NFL and the old Davilbats having a big reunion party after the current Devilbats won a game for Deimon.
the timelapse thingie, just a few coupla years or something.
Hiruma's getting married with Mamori-neechan. Kurita and Gaou established their place as the two strongest beings on earth, and finally depart to challenge the saiyans. Shin, with constant practice, becomes the best linebacker in the world who spends his daily training trident-tackling against monorail trains in motion, resulting in bankruptcy of train industry at the entire world. Yamato becomes the Earthquake Prevention Envoy by forcefully fixing the structural plane fractures across the whole world, using his balance talent and Yamato Charge. etc, etc.
Umm, no, but i mean the "each of their own journey" is shown, and then,
A godly American football newbie team appears to challenge the supremacy of Platinum Generation that Sena, Yamato, Gaou, Shin, Panther, Mr. Don etc already created, and caught their interest to attend the American football world cup one more time. Because there is only one truth. Winning.
Mmmm,, maybe it's like that.
*Scratches head*I don't have much idea but....
I want the current team Japan to lose against USA *ducks for cover* i don't know why..i guess because it looks a bit cliche to me if Japan beat US. I want a slam dunk kind of ending i guess..
well at the very end....
lets assume the japan team wins all this world cup thing
fast forward 10 years
everyone has some reunion party talking about they're normal life
except hiruma is not there
they turn on the tv to watch some pro football
And The Sena goes "Wait... isn't that..."
Everyone watches the tv as the number 1 laughs and it shows a closeup of Hiruma's face
Something like that
I rather liked the anime ending: Yoichi & Sena end up in the world of pros, in completely different teams
Tho, of course I also picture the likes of Ryokan & Monta to end up as pros too. Mwehehehe..
& ALL I ASK in terms of romance is... a "hint".... +D (like what Thallc mentioned, lol)
Like Mamori wearing a big " I'm with DEMON" shirt :P?
It would be predictable if the Japan wins (just like any other sport anime)
It would be funny if the US win
I would prefer Japan losing in a close game......maybe overtime till everyone pass out......It would be logical and plausible......but it would also mean to the Japanese reader that you cannot surpass the genetic barrier...so maybe they win the personal battles but lose the game..
Something like Slam Dunk and Yu Yu Hakusho....maybe Sena pass out and when he wakes up the game has ended and they lose...
Here's an idea for an ending:
Everything starts to get hazy on the football field for Sena. But that's only natural.
Sena blinks and is looking out the window at the Devilbats practicing football. Only, he's not on that field. Monta is beside him, and they're seen only from the shoulders up. Monta urges Sena that they only have a few more minutes before they're dismissed and can go home to play the new Madden. Finally, the mega strict teacher Mr. Hiruma dismisses his class in some maniac violent fashion, and the kids prep to leave. Suzuna is down the hallway, with friends, but Sena like all real life japanese students can't even approach her without stuttering, and continues to act like a doofus around her. Other characters are seen throughout, Mr. Don is actually the arrogant principal of the school, Agon is the asshole gym teacher that Sena resents, Musashi really is an old man that is a custodian at Demon High.
Then the big reveal is seen, and Sena and Monta are on wheel chairs; they're gimps. Monta reminds Sena to take his anti-depressants and other shitloads of pills, and he does so and he looks over to the football field and starts hallucinating again of him being the great Eyeshield 21, until the strong high puts him to roll onto the street by accident and he's hit by a bus that is being driven by a guy that looks a lot like Gaou.
