Right now I can't be anything else but hyped about sports anime. The only sports I've practised in my life are soccer, tennis and fitness. Yet I just LOVE One Outs & Ace of Diamond (baseball), Hajime no Ippo (boxing), Haikyu!! (volleybal) and Kuroko no Basket (basketball). I just love the concept and set up of each anime so much, even though I didn't like the other sports in high school as much as I did like soccer & tennis.

My questions for you all are, what did you get wathing sports anime? What is your favourite team? Who are/is your favourite character? Obviously, what is your favourite sports anime?

I just can't stop talking/watching about sports anime since I just finished Haikyu!!, Kuroko no Basket 3 just started running and still watching Ace no Diamond @ CR.

I really like Chihayafuru, the series. Chihaya is my favourite character because she's neither feminine or masculine, she has unique personality. She gets really obsessive about certain things... like watching someone playing Karuta on TV for 3 hours straight or something.



___________

Haru-chan. He's one of my favourites from Free!, because I can relate to his experiences and personality. He's an introvert with a high EQ. When another character asked about one of his friend's past, Haruka got really defensive.
Also he stopped swimming for a while because he didn't want to... upset his other friend, Rin.

FREE IWATOBI | ETERNAL SUMMER



I really like Rin and Haru, because they remind me of the relationship between my childhood friend and I from way back.
Also I love that they are really passionate about everything they do.

They're easily my two all time favorite sports anime characters.




KUROKO NO BASUKE




You just gotta love Kuroko.. I mean, look at that face 。^‿^。. I like how Kuroko is serious about what he does, but can still see the fun of it. He doesn't lose sight of his goals therefore I really like him.



HAIKYUU



I'm very hyped for Haikyuu. I mean the Manga made number 4 in Japan so it must be good. Was planning to watch it once the Anime had ended, but I'm already watching a ton of shows. .·´¯`(>▂<)´¯`·.

Where is that gif from? Is it fan-made? Or from special DVD or something?

Can't remember where I got the GIF from, but isn't it from the Anime? I mean I can vaguely remember this part.
At the very least it's not fan-made. ( ノ^ω^)ノ゚

Kind of curious myself now hehe. I'm going to look it up.

I don't think it's from the anime I watched the anime religiously, and I don't remember that scene lol. I'm guessing it might be a special on the DVD releases...

i liked Free! fanservice aside, the animation was really pretty and the sport aspect was taken seriously.

but obviously Gintama is the best of all

This. Never in my life have i experienced anything as motivating as the anime called Hajime no ippo. Even though this is complete fiction, just seing this guy called ippo makunouchi go through so much hardship and never giving up or running away to archieve his dreams, just really motivated me to follow his example and get my shit together.

I believe this is the effect sports anime can have and people, not just me. Also, Baby steps made me want to try tennis, and i love it so far.
