Hajime no Ippo, unless you count some of the later stuff with Takamura vs Hawk and etc. But that's more a 'style' and not really 'super moves'. Its still suppose to be within the boundaries of human ability. Just drawn with crazy auras and crap.

The thing about Hajime no Ippo is that a lot of the techniques, Sunday Punches and strategies used in the series is based on real life boxing. Even shit like Takamura vs Hawk, with them using 'Speed Hell' and Hawk's ridiculous ability to sway are based on a real life boxer who was infamous for being talented as fuck, but never trained or learn proper boxing form, until later in his career.

As far as the Sunday punches go, they're exaggerated to hell and back, but it's almost always that way when seen their the opponent's eyes to give you a real sense of tension.

Yowamushi Pedal is a lot of fun, especially because the characters are so over the top and likeable. I also like that it's a series with a lot of characters who lose or have to withdraw from races because of injuries, there aren't too many asspull super moves in the serious arcs. It's probably going to get worse as it goes on but the first twenty seven volumes are great standalone.

I get what you're saying for the most part, but Kuroko really isn't the most accurate or realistic portrayal of basketball. It wasn't so bad in the first 100 or so chapters (with the exception of Midorima's 100% full court shot range), but it's been going balls out DBZ BSball since then. It's entertaining as fuck, but it's obviously not for someone looking for the next SD.

But the sport or the success off the team are hardly the focus of the show, it's character exposition and interaction.

I like them but I rarely discuss them, the tension of the situation and the crazy moves and how flashy they look make them really entertaining, what makes them appealing to me is that most of them (even the most realistic ones) feel like a battle shonen using sports as an excuse, most of the matches happen inside the head of the characters and they are always trying to outsmart the other players, in some of them the abilities feel supernatural and in others the abilities are more normal but both keep feeling like a battle manga which is pretty good.

I know what you feel, is it so bad that I want normal sports in manga form? The thing is that it wouldn't sell well, so they don't do it.
Instead they add those crazy powers and things that doesn't make sense.

Yowamushi Pedal was one that my friend recommended when I talked about it, but when I watched there was that fat guy, I mean wtf? There is no way a fat guy can be faster in competitive enviroment, even if it was about riding down a slope. Riding bycicles is about speed, the faster you turn down the pedals, the faster you are riding, it has NOTHING with pure strenght, if pedaling stronger made you faster than someone that just pedals fast, there would be a bunch fatties in flat competitions, but there are none. Actually there isn't a single fatty in whatever serious bycicle competition.

Also, my sister was explaining kurobaske other day, and it made no sense(please correct me if my sister told me wrong), to a player be small enough to not be noticed during the game, he wouldn't even be able to intercept a ball. And that thing about the player letting his guard down because he didn't notice he was there still didn't got me, why the fuck did the guy "let his guard down" when he was a probable receiver? Or do you mean that just because there is no opponent near you, you can just lazily receive the ball?

I guess in the end I just don't like sports manga, because manga + sports isn't a good combination. thank you /a/ you are my best therapist.

I am not into sports manga/anime since I had a bad first experience with them. Even though they tried to be realistic, in the end it just looked like a battle with superpowers instead of a sport. When I was little, I was the only one among my friends that didn't liked captain tsubasa, because it looked too unrealistic when compared to a normal soccer game.(I guess it was this exclusion that made me not look after sports manga/anime, as I said before, thanks /a/, you are my best therapist).

>developing pitches != being ignorant of them.
They were ignorant of one pitch and again Eijin never had a real mentor to help him out. He started learning alot in Higschool, They are used as a way to introduce the reader/watcher to some of the finer points in baseball. Once again they are freshmen in higschool and even then they already do have mulltiple pitches. I bet if you ask an elementary kid what a splitter is they wont tell you what it is

>And yet it still resorts to shonen tropes

Wait, isn't the gyroball an actual pitch? Remember searching about it when it was first introduced in the show just to see if it had any sort of base or if it was just a magic pitch for the series. And from what I recall it was real.

This. He dragged his entire team with him even if they were pretty damn bad at the game. And I don't mean that in a bad way. He literally looked after each of his teammates. Which left him less time to polish his own skills.

A forkball is a Breaking pitch that takes a downward turn gradually.The catcher wanted him to throw it so that people couldnt adjust to the speed and movement of his fastball. The forkball would throw them off because coming out of his hand it looks like a fastball but goes slower and gradually goes down. He gripped the ball wrong however and ended up throwing a Splitter, Splitters go faster and take their downward turns are sharper than a forkballs
This video explains how to throw it

A gyroball is a type of baseball pitch used primarily by players in Japan. It is thrown with a spiral-like spin, so that there is no Magnus force on the ball as it arrives at home plate.[1] The gyroball is sometimes confused with the shuuto, another pitch used in Japan.

Tezuka used a standard fastball grip. He went into a basic motion. Only at the end of his delivery did he deviate. He turned the inside of his throwing arm away from his body and released the ball as if it were a football, making it spiral toward home plate.

The pitch started on the same course as a changeup, but it barely dipped. It looked like a slider, but it did not break. The gyroball, despite its zany name, is supposed to stay perfectly straight.

“That’s it!” Tezuka said, laughing hysterically on the mound. “That’s the gyro!”
