I have found one anime in my least favorite genre that was ok, and was wondering how my choice stacked up against some of the other more popular ones.

Love to hear why you think your choice is good. Really want to try and not write off an entire genre!

I hate sports type anime as well, but I found myself addicted to Kuroko's Basketball. It was just really awesome and left a nice impression.
The plot was way better than my expectations and I really liked the main character. It was also really exciting at times and I have my favorite episodes bookmarked in my mind. ^_^

I also thought that Ace of Diamonds was really good.
It was really engaging after a couple of episodes and yeah. Even though I hate baseball especially, I found it entertaining watching the main character struggle and overcome obstacles.

As for free!...I think that it should've just stayed as the little fan service video, but eh...whatever. I just get more shots of men, but not a genuinely engaging story-line.

Hmm..I find the lack of a Saki option disappointing.

Not my favorite genre, next to Action, but Saki really caught my attention, even to the point of me learning and enjoying the game with others now.

Sadly, out of that list, I've only watched Free! I am in love with Haikyu!! so far and I enjoyed Prince of Tennis. Baby Steps is getting pretty good. Whistle! was awesome too, though I liked the manga much better.

I think my favorite would probably be Eyeshield 21. I haven't watched it, but I was reading it for a while, and I've been trying to find time to pick it back up. I'm not going to lie, I think part of the reason I like it so much is because Hiruma is so evil. However, I also really enjoy being exposed to players with different skill levels and strengths. Plus, of all sports, football is the one I have the most trouble getting into irl, but this makes me excited about it. The main character is growing at a nice pace, and the story is good too. Hopefully this is carrying across in the anime as well.

Sport anime is definitely not my fore take, and I've only seen Free! so...

I don't know, but in my opinion I thought Free! was relatively good and is comparable to a slice of life anime with more man-service.

I'm actually really liking Haikyu! It's got many funny moments and serious-ish as well. At first I was put off because I usually stray away from sports animes (exception of K&B) also because it was volleyball.

i didn't like any of the choices. I am a fan of the sports anime Suzuka. It's a mix between Track/Field, as well as (realistic) teenage drama.

Prince of Tennis was the only sports manga I could suffer through.

Not enough choices in the poll.

The best sports anime for me would be Major, along with Slam Dunk. They have the best stuff regarding sports, teamwork, comedy and just pure awesomeness. Hikaru no Go and Initial D are some of the other unconventional sports that are pretty good too.

For new ones, I'd say Yowamushi Pedal.

Edit: And only ONE vote for Wanna Be the Strongest in the World?!

So my first sports anime was Prince of Tennis, then Free!, and then I finally, after finishing Free!, got aroung to watching Kuroko's Basketball. All three are my fave and I can't choose one or the other, I voted Free! though. I'm not big on sports so I was shocked to see that these three got my attention.
