What are the best sports-related anime to watch? I've just dabbling into this stuff recently and know all of jack shit, so I figured I should start with things I have some connection to. I can't ask /sp/ because they're dicks whenever you bring up any anime that didn't air on Toonami.
Google found me this one called Eyeshield 21 that I've been watching so far, couldn't find any other american football ones though. I have no idea if this is considered a good series by sports anime standards though, but at least it features something I can relate to.
Do you guys have some resource or something where critics (not just fans) rate and categorize all these series, so that I could find more? You guys seem too well-organized not to. Also, is there some way to make videos buffer faster? This series is 90 fucking episodes long and I'm sure I've only scratched the surface here, at this rate it's going to take me years to watch all the good stuff.
boku no pico
I, uh... what? I can't understand what you're saying. Google Translate doesn't know either. English please?
boku no pico you fucking faggot
That's the name of the show, dude. It's really good.
oh. now i feel dumb.
Don't feel dumb, friend. Go watch it now. You won't be disappointed.
hey wait a minute, google is bringing up some really weird shit. you guys are rusing me right?
Ruse? Us? Never!
godammit you guys I'm trying to be serious here. I know even less shit than your anime casualfags, so throw me a bone. would it help if I said please?
We get a lot recommendation threads all day everyday and most of the time we just tell people to google it themselves
Just watch Slam Dunk or Hajime no Ippo
Prince of Tennis.
We had a 300+ post thread a couple of weeks ago where we ranked the best sports anime. Eventually we all came to agreement on the following list:
1. Hajime no Ippo (boxing)
2. Major (seasons 1-3) (baseball)
3. Eyeshield 21 (football)
4. One Outs (baseball)
5. Major (seasons 4-6) (baseball)
6. Slam Dunk (basketball)
7. Oofuri (baseball)
A few people in this thread might disagree with this list, but please remember this has already been decided through hours of debate. Happy watching!
So /sp/ really are faggots?
don't forget to clean up when you're done watching
N-no Chihayafuru? I know it's not really a sport, but it's still classified in the sports genre.
>apparently about basketball
>Hajime no Ippo
>looks like boxing
What the fuuuuuck I heard most series were just 12 episodes long? why are these so fucking long? I mean I thought Eyeshield 21 being 90 episodes was an exception but it made sense because it's about the best and most popular sport, this is crazy though. Are sports actually really popular in anime? Was I lied to?
Please. Like /a/ can get a lot gayer.
This list is actually pretty shit.
Neither Aoki Densetsu Shoot, nor Touch, nor Whistle is on that list.
Fucking Major is twice on there.
>Ashita no Joe is the better boxing Anime/Manga
>Touch, Crossgame, H2 even Furikabutte are better than Major
>Slam Dunk is great
>Not one football anime on that list, are you kidding me?
>no Cross Game
O-okay. I'm not a big follower of baseball but if /a/ says it's good it must be, right?
Eyeshield has about 140 episodes.
card game isn't a sport
the site I'm looking at only shows 90. what site do YOU guys watch your anime on?
>what site do YOU guys watch your anime on?
I watched it at the time it was ongoing. Saizen-Fansubs i think.
It is considered a sport, it is played competitively like Go, Chess and other games retard.
try searching Nyaa
If you want a good basketball anime which is shorter, try Dear Boys, it has only 26 episodes, but it's overflown with QUALITY.
Sportsanime are usually quite long. Alone the time to the major tournaments last about 20-40 episodes, where at least 10 episodes long is a training camp.
You really think so poorly of us?
Maybe you should go ask /sp/ again you fucking bully.
None of them is a sport. And I don't care about shitty nerd definitions.
whoa whoa whoa
OP here and I believe we have more authority on this than you do. see pic related.
chess, poker, scrabble, anything like that, are GAMES, not sports. games can have plenty of competition, and that competition may even be intense. does NOT make it a sport however.
I just went to saizen-fansubs.com and it looks like anime but... it's a blog? there are no videos anywhere.
what is nyaa? wait isn't that the sound japanese cats make? what does that have to do with anything?
okay wrote that one down, thanks and will do
where did everyone go
Fuck it I'm a jock too. Nyaa is a torrent site, they're saying you should download the episodes instead of watching them in shitty stream quality.
ohhh. i didn't even know that was a thing. fuck yeah, torrents. i just hope i can finish downloading these immense series before net neutrality dies.
Yes. Majority of the board has been taking over by reddit and newfags. Literally no one there has been there for more than 2 years.
Fuck off. Rec threads aren't allowed here.
Except for most of our tripfags, I guess. I think we even have more tripfags than /o/
OP is a bandwagoning faggot
/o/ has tripfags?
Stop bumping the thread.
I like how you have that blank spot between your name and date.
Also I saged so no ban me pls.
