** I think they gave point off-screen, it mostly served to underline how awesome a moment was for the secondary characters (and by that point Sena's awesomeness was obvious)

*The whole set-up of the mvp score system. Panther wins the MVP title and the 3 million dollar football contract, but in the manga, he's shown to earn 3 points for the MVP title, something that both Monta and Agon also accomplish. Sena for some reason earns zero despite proving himself Panther's equal in the match.

** Sena is canonically bad at English, Mamori translated most of it during death march, the gunman coach is an English teacher so he might have taught the team. Not clear why Panther and sena can understand themselves after being drunk though.

Added DiffLines:

** His racism toward black is purely because of Morgan but like mr.Don it might be more national racism than asian with the Japanese.


Added DiffLines:

*** Because he is even more racist toward Japanese, to the point where he thought it would be a massacre. Deimon was never considered a threat for him that's why he took an insane bet.

* Do the Japanese characters speak English or not? At certain points, Watt has to translate between members of the Devils and the NASA team, but later we see Panther and Sena interact seemingly without a language barrier. Several chapters later, when the Deimon team is in America, the 'Devil's Gunmen' seem to understand that the announcer of the beach contest dubbed them the 'Happy-Go-Lucky Team', and the Kid and another Gunman take offense at her remark about him being old. It's hard to tell whether there's supposed to be any language barrier at all. (Of course, it probably goes without saying that Hiruma understands English pretty well and can speak it- he lived in the US and has several conversations with people who don't know any Japanese. I'm mainly asking about the characters in scenes he's not part of.)

* If Apollo is a racist who seems to resent everybody that isn't white, why does he have no issues with letting the Gonzales brothers play? Perhaps I'm simply reading too much into it, but given that both brothers have tan skin and the last name Gonzales, they are most likely Hispanic, and it seems uncharacteristic of Apollo to let them play with no strings attached.

Then again, perhaps he only resents black and Asian people in particular?

*** But if Apollo thought Panther was a superior player to the men on his own team, then why did he not even pay for Panther to come to Japan with them? Even if he is a racist jerkass, wouldn't Apollo want to have the best possible chance of beating the Deimons? He could've paid Panther's way, at the very least.

* Seibu's safety doesn't make much sense. By the book it is true that a run is safer than a pass but Kid is too fast to get sacked and Tetsuma would be able to catch a short pass to get out of the end zone.

** Even before Panther was introduce people treated the Americans like genetic freak, saying that only Taiyou would stand a chance against the muscle of the american. Plus the world cup arc is ridiculous in how the U.S team are portrayed as born to be perfect player so it's not like Panther stands out that much.



* It's covered in the anime that Hiruma does the kick, it just never goes in. You just see him kicking and missing. And Deimon does not have enough stamina to go two point conversion with the line all up until the christmas Bowl where kurita can take the whole line down. Otherwise they can just sack hiruma by going through the holes in defense.

** Is Tatanka good at aerial battle? He is a linebacker who probably never had to jump to intercept a ball.
