I'm watching this shonen and i find it really fun. It is the story of the members of an american football team in a japanese high school. It is enough fun and if you like characters like Slam Dunk you won't be disappointed Wink

It is not Shinkai (of course) but it can make you smile!

Added the link to wikipedia if you want some more information

I've read some of the manga and it seemed pretty decent. As someone who played American Football in the US, I find the football references kinda funny.

Why? They are not correct? I don't know Americal Football very well Very Happy
By the way, it is not so realistic from that point of view, just like Slam Dunk, but it makes me laugh Wink

it's just interesting to see what types of things a different culture focuses on from the sport. I know that there are some club teams in Japan an that the Japanese almost beat the US in the World Cup a few years back ... so it must be more of a cult sport there.
