I just finished watching another episode of Haikyuu! and the momentum is has is amazing I need more. So, what are some anime that have a similar kind of energy and momentum?

(I might be screwed because I've seen Yowamushi Pedal, Kuroko's Basket, Major, Shokugeki no Souma, Eyeshield 21, Ace of the Diamond, Baby Steps, Free, One Outs, and Hajime no Ippo )

Not many do. They lose it after the first episode.

Chihayafuru - Probably one of the best sports anime on CR. The sport is Karuta, a 300 year old card game based on even older poetry (yes, this is a real sport in Japan). First couple of episodes have a flashback to when they were kids, but it goes back to today soon after.

I agree about Area no Kishi or Knight in the Middle but I wasnt very satified at the end though but has the same feel of youth and sports.

I second these suggestions.

BTW, I've moved this to the Advice, Info, Recommendations forum.

Starship Operators is interesting. A group of Starship cadets take over a warship after their planet surrenders to an aggressive neighbour. The cadets then finance a private war against the neighbour by selling exclusive broadcast rights to a reality TV show. The basic premise sounds bizarre but it has the energy and momentum of a sports anime.
