If you liked the Eyeshield 21 manga, the Anime-Planet community thinks you'd like:
Area no Kishi and Eyeshield 21 are similar in some aspects of story. Area no kishi follows on Football whereas Eyeshiel21 focuses on American Football. Both series main character have a major talent sealed/hidden in them. With certain events taking place to force them to show the world their talent and help their team to achieve Victory.
Both are School Club based sports manga with facing many teams from country and the world. The main character is life of team which dramatically changes the future of team. Though eyeshield has some over the top stuff like light speed run. Ull enjoy both series equally
Ippo Makunouchi is an average and overly-shy high school teenager. His mother runs a fish boat shop and he constantly has to help her with it, and thus has no friends. Constantly bullied because of this, Ippo wonders what it would be like to be strong. A chance encounter with Takamura Mamoru, an up and coming boxer in the Japanese ranks, leads to Ippo's revelation that he has an incredible punch. Takamura sees potential in Ippo, and brings him into Kamogawa Gym. Thus begins Ippo's journey to discover just what it's like to be a winner. With a fighting spirit, can Ippo eventually become a professional boxer?
Both the series host some similar concepts. Hajime no Ippo is based on Boxing whereas Eyeshield21 is based on American Football.
The main characters, Sena and Ippo, are fairly similar in their attitudes. Both suffering from bullying, and both wanting to make a change to their lives. Both lifes changes when they meet a certain someone(Takamura for Ippo and Hiruma for Sena) who make them paticipate in sports which changes the course of their life.

From now on Sakuragi must work together with his teammates, including his rival Rukawa, to fulfill their captain's dream of winning the national championship. That is, if they have what it takes!
Slam Dunk(basketball) and Eyshield21(American Football), it couldnt get any similar then this.
Both Main characters get into the sport they know nothing about but have great talent fr it. One to Impress the girl he likes(Sakuragi) and other due to being forced by a senpai(Sena).Both the series features senpai's with their last chance to win the Tournaments they dreamt of, and with some new super Rookies which change teams fate.Few Progidys, few idiots,few Deliquints and few hardworkers make a team and challenger other highschool teams.
Though they must endure training from hell to achieve there goals
Like one, Ull love other one
