Writer Riichirou Inagaki and artist Yuusuke Murata ended their Eyeshield 21 sports manga in this year's 29th issue of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine on Monday. During its seven-year run, the popular manga exposed many young fans to the American form of football and inspired a 2005-2008 television anime series, an event-only anime short, and several games. The 37th and final compiled book volume of the manga will ship in October.
Viz Media is publishing the 26th volume of the manga in North America this month. The Crunchyroll website is streaming the anime series after the defunct Toonami Jetstream website had released parts of it.
