Yes, I generally love the sports genre. There's really only 1 that I didn't really like that much, which was Giant Killing. I just couldn't get into any of the characters or in almost any of the games that were played.

I'm assuming you're bored and are looking for some old topics to discuss? Hence all the bumped threads.

Watched Eyeshield 21 completely by chance and totally loved it (ironic, because I'm English and despise American Football on principle!), although it hasn't tempted to try out more sports anime...should I?


Yeah, same. I'm British as well and have watched Eyesheild 21. Gave me an insight into American Football.
I normally stay clear of sport anime tbh, mainly because I don't have enough interest in some sports. I did like Price of Tennis and Big Wind-up. But didn't have enough interest to continue watching Prince of Tennis.
However you being female I suggest something like Free! or Kurokos Basket because it has MANSERVICE! xD

I love some and dislike others. Recently I picked up the cuteness series Ro-Kyu-Bu! as my newest sport anime

Yes, it's one of my favorite genres. My favorite anime from them being Hajime no Ippo, Cross Game, One Outs, Prince of Tennis, Initial D(if you would count it one), and Eyeshield 21. There are probably some others that I forgot.

I'm looking forward to our rarely high amount of sports anime this fall. Hajime no Ippo's third season, Diamond no Ace, Kuroko no Basket 2, and Yowamushi Pedal. Especially looking forward to HnI's third season and Yowamushi Pedal. Diamond no Ace is a basketball anime which there are tons of and KnB I don't really think is great, maybe this season that will change though.

I've only ever read the manga Prince of Tennis and heard the anime's just like the manga, and I liked it. I think anime has a way of making things far more glorified than they are in real life. PoT was pretty epic with its gravity-defying tennis balls lol.

Then there's that Chiryakurausomething anime with the girl and two guys and they're playing cards well I was frustrated 'cuz I couldn't figure out who she was gonna end up with cuz it was mostly focused on the game so I just quit reading/watching it

I wouldn't say I love it or hate sports anime, but it's not bad.

I love sports, but I can't stand sports anime since the playing scenes don't seem very intense compared to their real life counterparts and I've always hated it when the characters get powers

Love sports, HATE sports anime

And I looked up some of those "football" ones people talked about.

That isn't football, it is CRAPPY SOCCER!!!!!

Football is a REAL game, Soccer is flopping and acting!

Sports anime are anime. I see you like Ghost in the shell, why don't you just hack computers and shoot people in real life? Or watch people do it.

And yes, I love sports animes. Well most. I don't like football animes, or soccer as you americans call it.
Baseball is great, american football is great, tennis is great. And I already like cycling, so I'll probably like Overdrive.

I've watched 6 or 7 (if you don't count martial arts) and I liked them all. They were all shounen genre though.

It's the same thing. Why watch romances when you can go out and do it yourself or become a matchmaker. Why watch an adventure anime when you can go traveling. etc
