I think there is, but I suppose it all depends on what you like. I'd recommend you try H2 or Touch, both by Mitsuru Adachi.


dont know those two but in some showa romance would just distract from the plot, and sport and romance are polar oposites thats kinda the point in some respect



It definitely depends on how it's done - I think a lot of romance in canon Prince of Tennis would be entirely misplaced, since they're still in middle school and all.

However, I'm going to have to disagree with sports and romance being polar opposites. Most pro athletes are married - they must have some romantic life. The question is merely how important that romance is, and how an anime series should balance that. Obviously I don't expect flowers and sparkles, but I similarly don't expect a complete and total void.

Even Prince of Tennis has some amount of canon romances involved - Kamio's crush on An, for example.

I liked An and Miyuki. I could see a future Echizen x Miyuki, but that's about it.

I think the girls portrayed in PoT are:
Ryuuzaki Sumire
Ryuuzaki Sakuno
Meino Nanako
Echizen Rinko, if you want to count her
Osakada Tomoko
Shiba Shiori
Chitose Miyuki (I'm not sure if she's been featured in the Nationals OVA yet)
Tachibana An
Hanamura Aoi

.. trying, but failing to really remember any others. Although, I personally would count Mizuki Hajime as well. XD


Haha 8D Yeah, they don't exactly make the girls in PoT pop out. o_o

Most pro athletes being married actually goes against your point

A study showed that 75% of all statistics are made up , and since i don't know the exact number i won't just spout something out of my mouth , but the majority of athletes are unfaithful . All die hard sports fans know this as it is talked about quite frequently . Yet in the few sport anime that have relationships , they are potrayed as the perfect couple . So if we go by your reasoning , then anime athletes should be arrogant unfaithful jerks , like most of their real life counterparts.

Actually, I prefer saying that 47.3% of all statistics are made up on the spot. I do hope you know that "study" is a very long-running joke. =P (there might've been a real study at some point, but it's more widely regarded as mathematician humor)

I never said the perfect long-term faithful relationship. Just romance, which could very well be found in extramarital affairs. And in the short timespan that these sports anime take place, it's perfectly plausible for them to be in a "perfect" relationship that will later go sour. The only thing I'm saying is that just because the primary focus of a show may be sports doesn't by definition mean that romance cannot be found in it. Apparently you've also seen sports anime where relationships/romance exists, which helps my point.

FOr me, I think it is really good. It's not just because I am a RyoSaku shipper, but it is also because if you look even much better to the anime or even the manga, you'll see some hints. Sakuno, and especially Ryoma, is on his stage of adolescence. So there's nothing bad if he/she likes him/her. We can't just use Sakuno's voice or even Sakuno's blushing as a reason to hate her. There are even points where she looks... not just cute, but normal. Refer to manga to know what I am saying.
