The final Shonen Jump Installment runs on Monday; final book volume in October.

The writer, Riichirou Inagaki and artist Yuusuke Murata have ended their Eyeshield 21 sports manga in this year's 29th issue of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump Magazine. The popular manga showed the young fans the American form of football and was the inspiration to a television anime series run in 2005-2008. It also inspired an event-only anime short and several games.

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.
