Ace of the Diamond is a really good baseball anime, I'm enjoying that quite a bit.

Don't know if many people have watched it, but the soccer anime The Knight in the Area has some cool games, but apparently isn't getting a second season...

Baby Steps is a tennis anime I'd recommend to everyone.

I find that I'll only watch a sports anime if it's realistic. *Ahem* Prince of Tennis.

I don't watch that much sports anime but I did give Slam Dunk and Hikaru no Go(well Go isn't really a sport but I guess this is also under the sports category when it comes to anime genre) a try and I love both of them.

Sports... where to draw the line in Anime (see what I did there...) as to what is a sport and what isn't?

Cross Game (Baseball is definitely considered a sport)
Ping Pong (still a sport)
Chihayafuru (the line blurs, but there is action, conditioning and stamina involved, and tournaments)
Hikaru no Go (it's a game, and there are tournaments. Not very physical externally, but the players very much do get their hearts racing)

Too hard to choose just one, all changed the way I thought about Anime at the time I first watched them.

I really haven't watched too many sports anime, but the one that I did was Eyeshield 21. It was pretty good.

I agree with the first post didn't think it was worth it, but after watching prince of tennis and eye-shield 21 they changed my opinion. I would have to say mines

1) Prince of Tennis

2) Chihayafuru

3) tied between haiku, ace of diamond, or baby steps


yowapeda's really good too!

Without question, that would be Chihayafuru. From the characters to learning about the game of karuta, and then there are the amazing visuals and stuff that went into this show all make this so great. The journey to becoming the queen of the sport is really something there. Other excellent sports shows that I like include Haikyuu, Free!, Princess Nine, and Ping Pong.

I'm amazed that we're the only 2 people so far to name Slam Dunk... it kinda feels strange given how popular it is.

Well, in Japan it is. From what I have heard, it is what popularized basketball in Japan, that and Michael Jordan.

I have loved every sports anime I've seen. Major, Knight in the Area, and Cross Game are probably my favorites though and depending on how Ace of the Diamond ends it may be up there too.

Haven't watched many but it is easyily Chihayafuru which is probably in my top 10 anime all time, it's crazy good.

The only other two i've seen worth mentioning were Bamboo Blade which is only sort of a sports anime and baby steps which was pretty good.
