i never understood the appeal of sports anime like prince of tennis.


Just like anything else, it appeals to different people and audiences. They can be slice of life like, engage people that may not know about the sport including tactics and strategies, as well as the issues involving the training and politics of the sport. Slam Dunk had a great reply one liner ("I"ll provide the smack.") which still makes me smile when I think about it. Giant Killing (soccer) had a game where they used endurance as breakdown strategy that I hadn't thought of. Eyeshield 21 was a bit ridiculous but was a fun watch, esp. if you like intimidation by rock and roll (and I don't mean music, I mean autofire).

I saw Prince of Tennis when it aired a bit on the now defunct Toonami when it was relegated I think to Saturday evening before killing the lineup. It was respectable.

Sexism? It is a majority of the time Yaoi if there is nothing but guys in it. I'm a guy so how does that make it sexism?

Natsume Yujin-cho Shi YES! Good pick up CR!


Sexism has nothing to do with what sex you are. It's based on your assumptions and prejudices. Being a guy doesn't exclude you from being sexist towards guys or categories therein. Feminist women and non-feminist women often make sexism an insult or issue during flame wars (not female enough, like one of the boys, passive, etc.)..

Even if you disagree, and to put it another way, what you said could easily be perceived as sexist because it was the absence of women that appears to have led you to your question.

Myself, I find it ironic (not sure if that is the best word for it) that Natsume, a show with actual yaoi undertones between the 2 human guys in the pic (and 3 males total in the pic (that massively overweight furrball in the corner is a (presumed) male spirit in the show) is being announced alongside PoT, which you questioned is yaoi based on the pic when the first thing that usually might come to mind is that it's about tennis by title, pic, category filed, and the general understanding that most sports, tennis included, is usually competitively played in team or by individuals largely against the like sex.

Then again, I first thought you were poking fun at the show and only later realized you were serious given your followup posts. But hey, regardless, that's one dirty mind you got--pic of a bunch of guys...sports...yaoi!

glad you posted three titles for the long weekend. too bad the two anime ones are sequels that i don't really feel like catching up on with, and the other is a drama that i won't watch. but i'm still happy off the pirates announcement and looking forwards to see what else is coming up.

Ohhh I figured, but thanks for answering me ^^

I see they mostly fixed it now.

I say mostly, because while they now have a proper Winter 2012 section, they left a copy of Natsume Yujin-cho in the Winter 2011 section.

The drama was kinda unexpected... I never saw the first prince of tennis and Viz only has the first 50 eps available online so I'm not too sure about that one... Natsume will be a watch for me but I've gotta catch up on the past 2 seasons first lol.

Alright, there's Natsume. Now the only other one I really want to see licensing negotiations work on is Nisemonogatari.
