Enjoy~Eyeshield 21 chapter 295
Yamato : Woooooh!!
Announcer : The Teikoku Alexanders
Announcer : have cut in two Deimon’s hope of catching up with a single stroke!
Left : The emperor shows its best! Hopes of catching up turn to despair already...!?
Announcer : This touchdown is certainly
Announcer : the finishing blow!!
Board : Teikoku - Deimon
Kurita : ... Everyone was working so well according to the plan
Kurita : And we finally caught up a bit, but...
Mamori : Even though
Mamori : we don’t have time left
Mamori : Even though we couldn’t let them score a single point...
Sena : This
Sena : easily...
Monta : Damn it, it’s my fault.
Monta : In the end, Taka settled it with that long pass.
Monta : I can’t surpass Honjou-san, right...!!
Mamori : With this
Mamori : It’s 41 to 16...
Suzuna : After that, Teikoku
Suzuna : is going to get one more point with the bonus kick, right??
Aki : By scoring this kick, we’ll have our target, 42 points.
Aki : It’s your death.
Hera : “As predicted!” is what I can’t really say, but
Hera : Well, it’s alright in the end!
Hera : A win is a win!
(T/N : remember, “4 2” = “shi ni” in Japanese = “to death”)
Monta : Revenge
Monta : MAX!!
Monta : I’ve got a great idea!
Monta : For Teikoku’s kick right now
Monta : I’ll regain my notoriety... I mean, my honor
Juumonji : What, that damn stupid monkey wisdom again.
Toganou : A guy that can turn everyone’s face into this
Toganou : There’s no way he could think of something great, that stupid monkey.
Sena : Well, let’s listen, just in case...
Yukimitsu’s small text : Just in case, huh?
3bros : Like you’d be able to do that, you stupid monkey!!
Sena : Yeah
Sena : That’s a bit...
Hiruma : Kekeke, even his idiocy has matured this far
Hiruma : But we’ll do it.
Hiruma : It’s 100% impossible, but it doesn’t matter.
Hiruma : Do it
Hiruma : Fucking monkey.
Yuuya : ... You’ve changed
Yuuya : Youichi.
Left : There’s little time left. The control tower is showing its predicament through his back... What can I do...
295th Down : The devil’s mistake
Announcer : Well then, the Teikoku Alexanders
Announcer : Are of course going to score here
Announcer : With a reliable kick!!
Hotei : Ohoho
Hotei : Even if you pile up one point by one point, it becomes a mountain
Kansai’s number one kicker : Hotei
Kick success rate : 99%
(T/N : for the trivia, Hotei is the name of one of the seven lucky gods in Japanese folklore, and as a god of abundance is depicted always laughing or smiling. Wikipedia it if you wanna know more)
Someone : Ooooh, Kurita at full power!
Someone : Crush the kicker!!
Hera : No worries
Hera : With Kurita’s speed
Hera : and the kicker being so far away
Hera : He won’t be able to bother him.
Monta : The kicked ball...
Monta : Catch MAX!!
Sakuraba : There’s no way
Sakuraba : You can do that!!
Hiruma : Yeah’s, it’s 10 billions percents impossible
Hiruma : But with your super catching power
Hiruma : If you could pressure the kicker for even 1 millimeter, it’s already something...!
Someone : Oooh, thanks to Kurita’s power
Someone : Monta has pushed through and jumped...
Announcer : What an impressive
Announcer : jumping power!!
Hotei : Ohoho
Hotei : Rookie-san is sure energetic...
Hotei : But I’m sorry
Hotei : Hardened by the skills of a top-class kicker
Hotei : No matter the pressure
Hotei : I won’t think about it at all.
Hotei : Nhfun!!
Sena : Aaah
Sena : It’s useless...!
Honjou : In the vocabulary of catching, there’s nothing like “I can’t catch it”
Honjou : There’s only “I couldn’t catch it”.
Taka : Is it because of the wind pressure when he extended his arm
Taka : or
Taka : because it grazed the end of his glove...
Kurita : It’s...
Sena : out...!
Monta : Damn it, sorry!
Monta : I couldn’t
Monta : catch it properly...!!
Juumonji : No, it’s awesome enough, you idiot!
Sena : Monta!!
Hotei : What the...
Taka : *whispering* incredible
Taka : Incredible...!
Mamori : One point
Mamori : We’ve only managed to prevent a single point
Mamori : But this spirit
Mamori : will definitely...
Doburoku : Alright, it stays at a 25 points difference!
Public : Deimon
Public : Deimon!
Suzuna : Turn to attack!
Public : Deimon!!
Someone : There’s little more than 5 minutes left already!
Riku : Even if Teikoku doesn’t score a single point more
Riku : They can’t win unless they score 4 touchdowns in a row...!
Kid : It’s become
Kid : quite a bit harder, huh...
(Xophien’s note : how about three touchdowns and a field goal, you baka-Riku)
Monta : Shit...!
Sena : Taka-kun is dealing with Monta perfectly
Sena : We can’t use something like a surprise pass to Monta
Sena : against Teikoku anymore.
Shin : If passes are their only option
Shin : Then defending against it is easy.
Shin : Eyeshield 21
Shin : In the end, there’s no other way
Shin : But for you to pass Yamato with your run...!
Yamato : ... I see
Yamato : I finally understand
Yamato : Why Deimon lost time...
Yamato : The reason for Deimon’s control tower,
Yamato : Hiruma-shi’s mistake.
Hera : ... That strategy
Hera : of Deimon earlier
Hera : After you managed to get rid of Taka with that super long pass
Hera : You did a nice job keeping the flow of things
Hera : But...
Yamato : But if passes are your only option, it’s easy to counter.
Yamato : In order to get back the lost time in one go with that trump card
Yamato : You needed to be able to attack with both runs and passes.
Yamato : That’s why
Yamato : you were waiting
Yamato : for Sena-kun to defeat me...
Doburoku : Yamato doesn’t have weak points.
Doburoku : There’s nothing that would support him being defeated
Doburoku : But
Doburoku : He was still waiting.
Doburoku : While the remaining time disappeared second by second
Doburoku : He just...
Doburoku : He just believed in Sena...!
Yuuya : Youichi
Yuuya : You didn’t believe in anything else than numbers and facts
Yuuya : Just like me
Yuuya : But you’ve changed...
Yuuya : you got reliable kouhais
Yuuya : as your teammates
(T/N : for those who don’t remember, kouhai is the opposite of senpai, so underclassman)
Narration : For the first time
Narration : He ignored the numbers
Narration : He ignored the facts
Yuuya : You kept up with it
Yuuya : If you had given up on Sena’s run five minutes earlier
Yuuya : With just the passes, you could have put on a good match
Hera : It’s the control tower Hiruma’s
Hera : mistake.
Narration : Hopes and wishes
Narration : Those are things a composed commander on the battlefield
Narration : should never have.
Sena : That Hiruma-san’s
Sena : mistake...
Narration : In the last decisive battle
Narration : What caused the iron control tower Hiruma’s complete mistake
Narration : That is...
Narration : His heart that believed
Narration : in Sena
Narration : And in his teammates.
Sena : It’s
Sena : not
Sena : a mistake.
Sena : I’ll win.
Sena : I’ll win against Yamato-kun.
Sena : If I can do that
Sena : The path that chose Hiruma-san
Sena : Won’t be a mistake at all...!!
Taki : Ahaha, Sena-kun!
Taki : If you can’t pass monsieur Yamato above or on the sides, then...
Taki : Below!!
3bros : It’s even worse than Monta’s monkey wisdom!
Left : The path to catch up, it’s below!!?
Yamato : This
Yamato : is...!
