Does /a/ hate sports anime?
Used to like them, but lately most sports anime are just fujoshi pandering.
We hate everything. Why would sports animu be particularly hated?
Yes. We hate the best anime and only watch harem/ecchi shit. Which sports anime include some of the best anime ever made. So obviously we hate them too.
Post tits or gtfo.
Name me one sports manga that isnt fujoshit bait or with ridiculous unrealistic super power move.
Dont recommend baseballshit. You read 1Adachi, you read them all.
I'm a massive sports fan but I hate sports anime. I seek escapism from anime and sports is too rooted in the real world.
Watched that when I was a kid. It aired on television at 6am in the morning on Saturdays. I woke up punctually to watch it with my bro every week.
>You read 1Adachi, you read them all.
First of all, that's wrong.
>Name me one sports manga that isnt fujoshit bait or with ridiculous unrealistic super power move.
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.
What is the best sports anime and why is it Chihayafuru?
Aoba is love
>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.
Slam Dunk, Ippo, Nononono
Forgot to state, OP here.
>tfw afraid to read Teppu because I'm afraid I'll get nitpicky and autistic about the techniques
I hate this existence.
Recently caught up with PoT. I continue to be amused.
Aoba only won by default because best girl is dead.
I need to find my umbrella
What are you talking about. The best girl is right here. Fucking spoilers dude.
I used to watch Ganbare! Kikkāzu on TV when i was younger. That's about all the contact i even had with sports anime.
Sports powerlevel: 1
The techniques are well done, the only unrealistic part is actually how good everyone is for their age.
Also all the girls are absolutely delicious.
You should at least read Major,One Outs and Ofuri.
I don't like it, but I understand the appeal.
I'm reading a manga about cycling right now
Really? Well then I guess I'll have to give it a shot, then.
One outs was great, Chihayafuru was too.
Chihayafuru S3. When?
Why is Ashita no Joe so much better than every other sports related anime/manga?
Have fun, Natsuo is best girl.
>Dad walks in
Also, I don't even like boxing or sports but god damn I'm hooked onto this
>Also, I don't even like boxing or sports but god damn I'm hooked onto this
Welcome to every Ippo fan ever.
"I hate boxing. Why would I want to watch that shit."
"I want to take up boxing holy fuck!"
All rounder Meguru shits on this.
I'm not very big on sports anime because it's too real world for me, but I do appreciate the hotblooded atmosphere that a lot of sports anime have.
You take that back, motherfucker.
I used to hate baseball then I watched Major, now I have a great respect for the sport.
Watched this show when I was a kid, went from boxing to muay thai and now I compete in amateur mma
I still find normal boxing unappealing, but the show is so interesting.
How are the characters in Meguru?
I might pick it up to have some MMA in-between Animexis once ridiculous release times.
Story of me.
Didn't give a shit about boxing before, now I'm all but actually taking up the art. I'm almost afraid to show this to my brother because I don't want him to take boxing.
I'm not up-to-date with some of the latest volumes, but they're good from what I read.
>tfw first time getting wrestlefucked by a guy basically a weight class above you
Fucking sucks, especially at manletweight where each pound counts the most.
At Vol 2. now.
rokudenashi blues is more a delinquent manga than a full on sports manga but the boxing is always pretty grounded
Does GuP count?
It's a sport in their universe.
Season 2, never.
Eyeshield 21 is the best sports anime
Best be joking mate.
Why are there very few football anime?
Because football (American football) is as popular in Japan as Football (Soccer) is in America.
>buzzer beater no more
I seriously wanted to see Hideyoshi play in the Intergalactic League.
It's a fucking Japanese anime you autist.
Honestly didn't enjoy it much but after picking up DnA, I'm completely in love with it and started backlogging every sports show.
The friendship and motivation it brings is pretty great plus the characters are always fucking bros.
About to watch 19 now.
I wish they made some water polo anime with cute girls sticking fingers up to their opponents butts.
Need a lacrosse anime
But the Japs actually have a respectable national soccer team. I thought they cared about the sport more?
Looks like you've misunderstood me. I'm saying that the anime was completely forgettable. No where close to the top sports anime out there.
Why haven't you taken this opportunity to watch an anime about the Winter Olympics /a/?
It's in my backlog. Is it any good?
If you're talking about actual football (soccer), then there's more than a couple anime for those. It was actually even more popular in the 70s and 80s.
I thought you meant American football.
It's great. I went into it not expecting much but I was very surprised at how good it was. Tazusa is a great MC.
if I wanted to watch a bunch of fucks pass a bullshit drug test and get paid millions I'd watch mlb
so yes I hate sports anime
Area no Kishi
Well, that was fun.
Ashita no Joe
Volleyball anime next season.
Every time I try to watch a sports anime I am completely lost because of the term they use.
>Diamond no Ace and Haikyuu
Oh man I can't fucking wait.
And Yowamushi too.
How dare you forget about Ping Pong
I like how Ippo doesn't hold back about showing how boxing is a brutal dead-end sport.
What do you mean?
I didnt pick up boxing, but pretty much thanks to Ippo I started running every other day.
How much better is it than Area no Kishi? I still remember watching Captain Tsubasa and Aoki Densetsu Shoot! as as kid, good times.
Baby Steps too.
I actually find on a whole, that sports shows tend to be better overall.
I'm not sure there's a sports show that I haven't enjoyed.
I didn't like one of the seasons of Major but overall I enjoyed the show immensely.
Why does he sound so gay?
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'm not watching that have it back logged.
Of course I can't forget these but I'm most looking forward to Haikyuu.
>You'll never be a bro with Tetsu.
Bamboo Blade was okay.
I only hate gay sports anime
>ridiculous unrealistic super power move.
You say that like it's a bad thing.
It is. Kurobas is absolutetly awful for example. I want sports not a JRPG
The abilities in that are absolutely minor and most are just another way of describing normal human traits with some flashy visuals on top.
>not a sport
Flashy visuals. How is it surprising that the person they've been struggling to find all game instead draws their attention away for a brief second?
Baseball is tanoshii!
Ashita no Joe is probably the anime ever.
Anime about cute girls playing soccer when?
*best anime ever
Area no kishi exists you know.
We love them. Ignore the tsunderes.
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.
His post was linked to one with a Giant Killing image. How the hell did you think he meant American football?
I finished One Outs today. It was absolutely fantastic, but it didn't feel much like Sports anime.
This anon gets it. It's fun as fuck, but it's not a normal sports manga.
Americans think of American football when they hear football, it's only natural.
It is more Kaiji with baseball thrown in.
More like Akagi. Toua is nothing like Kaiji, he's clearly an Akagi copy.
Shit was great.
We loves basketball anime
Looking QUALITY there, Maho.
I only watched Kaiji.
I mainly referred to the mind game.
I laughed at her head more than I did with your filename. Fuck, who thought this design would look good?
The way I see it, 4chan doesn't talk about sports anime because they generally talk only about anime whose quality is in any way up for debate. Sports anime is almost always "pretty good" or better.
The way you type like you knew something is cute.
>ctrl+ f Rookies
Thread is now complete. The best baseball manga ever written.
>The way you type like you knew something
Your typing is also pretty cute, anon.
>hating on balloon head lolis
Its fairly realistic to actual basketball, although the games seem really drawn out at least in terms of reading the manga.
T-Thank you, anon. You are making me blush.
What do you guys think of Real? The first few chapters were pretty shitty. I think the overall premise with the disabled guy playing baseball is interesting though. Does it get better?
>You read 1Adachi, you read them all
why do you have to remind me?
street samurai baseball
>The first few chapters were pretty shitty
Kill yourself, REAL is great.
Yes, I think the first chapters were bad and I made a mistake.
Well I don't even want the opinion from someone that suggests someone to kill himself for just that.
>no one talking about Shiratama Shoujo ever.
I never watch baseball. I don't even know any slangs they use in baseball (steal, slugger, innings, etc.) Still, I read Cross Game & Touch, despite knowing jackshit about it. Reading the baseball parts is like watching an action movie in foreign language. You excited, but you don't understand.
I still don't understand how fucking lacrosse became a girl's sport in Japan. What the hell. It's basically ice hockey on the ground. Field hockey doesn't count since that shit's gay.
I want a manly lacrosse manga but it's all girly shit. Fuck you, Japan.
I don't remember the first chapters being bad, but REAL is amazing.
If you aren't retarded google exists for a reason. It's not like it's too hard to understand.
Please don't remind me of that arc in Muvluv.
I googled some of it, but I still didn't got the whole picture. Some basic lines here & there, but it's still blurry for me.
Thank god both of them aren't exactly about baseball
>not skipping trough it
It's really easy to learn these things.
Now if you were talking about mahjong, people could relate.
Or Go. I don't still don't know shit after watching hikaru no go.
You are a faggot if you did that. It was tedious, but in the end it wasn't that bad. Skipping it the second time is acceptable.
>there will never be a cricket manga/anime
ALl this talk about the rules of baseball made me yearn for some good cricket fiction.
Why am I a faggot for doing that? I hated all of vanilla Muv Luv.
Mahjong isn't hard at all. Advanced play is, but understanding it is really easy if you know the basics. I never got people who watched/read Akagi without knowing Mahjong, it's a hundred times better if you know it.
I don't really give enough of a shit about sports in the first place to want to watch sports anime.
I'll watch an occasional game of basketball or handegg but that's about it.
Cricket is my least favourite sport by a track mile and I entirely view as a vastly inferior version of baseball.
>wanting cricket anime
>wanting sports played by curry niggers
Including Unlimited? If so I can't understand. Extra was mediocre, but it was completely necessary and I don't regret reading it. Skipping parts of it would make you miss references in Alternative.
No way. Have you ever wanted to win so badly you fused with a typhoon?
Cricket anime with Kaiji narrator when?
>He is trapped
>Trapped in Wicket HELL!
I dont know shit about cricket rules, so you can sub something more appropriate in
I've watched One Outs, Chihayafuru, Free and Oofuri, and all of them were enjoyable, so no, I don't hate sports anime. I actually like them.
Of course not Unlimited, only shitty generic Extra.
I don't think I missed that much for skipping the game, I already watched shitty kimi ga nozomu eien for the sister.
Free isn't a sports anime.
It is. I felt motivated and great while watching it.
Don't have to tell me that, I know my mahjong, but saying baseball's terms are complicated when you have mahjong around is really amusing.
of course it is
it's also less gay than basugay
>No good golf and badminton anime out there
>pro golfer saru will never get subbed http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rxZwl1WlFsM
But the sport or the success off the team are hardly the focus of the show, it's character exposition and interaction. The show spends a majority of the time with the guys doing X and then doing Y but there is hardly any actual swimming or competition. Sure, swimming is the central theme but Free! to the first 12 episodes of Kurobas. Can you not tell them apart?
The SoL had a big part but then again, SoL in sports anime is the best SoL.
You can get some badminton in Tari Tari.
Dude, they even got a training arc. Stop pretending.
Free is as much a sports anime as K-on is a music one.
You clearly haven't seen K-On.
As expected of KyoAni.
Not him, but it definitely had it's moments that wouldn't look out of place in a serious sports anime.
It did the actual sport stuff well, even if that wasn't the main focus.
Well K-On has a lot of music in it, so yep.
Actually, I'd kill for a good baseball anime.
It has music but music isn't the main theme.
Touch, One Outs.
Yes it is.
The main theme of K-On! is a group of girls get together and form a band wanting to go to Budokan. Nearly everything they do is band related, form working for equipment to procrastination.
daiya no ace
>all these faggots falling for recommendation post
No it's not.
It's a group of girls forming a club and doing next to nothing in 3 years.
They're doing their music, and lots of it.
Why does it pain you so?
Fuck off elitist. Every thread on /a/ is a recommendation thread.
Oh no! What shall we ever do now?!
Have you ever seen Dan Doh?
Procrastination is a big part of being in a band. Last band I was in, we spent pretty much most of our practice sessions drinking beer and eating hob-nobs while making little music.
call the think police
The only thing worse than rec threads are faggots who think every thread is a rec thread.
>Have you ever seen Dan Doh?
I've been meaning to watch it, but I don't really have a lot of faith in it.
I think it looks like shit because I really hate how early 00's anime look like.
> Last band I was in, we spent pretty much most of our practice sessions drinking beer and eating hob-nobs while making little music
This what I mean they play as little music as they swim in Free.
Though I admit that there is more swimming in Free that there is music in K-on.
There is tons of music in K-On. You're clearly a troll.
Have a nice day.
Take your pick.
Girls und Panzer was super popular here.
How many of those 30 episodes are concert episodes?
Have a nice day as well.
I wish Tankwondo was a proper sport.
There's plenty of concerts considering they are a highschool club.
4 or 5. Most the others have practice session, soundchecks, festival going.
All rounder meuru
I agree that for highschool club it's not that few but most of them took one episode which is too short for a music anime.
And from what I remember they don't really practice much do they?
You fucking faggots where did the sports go?
Music is the genre closest to sports.
It's a discussion about whether Free is a sports anime or not.
Sorry. I'll shut up now.
I still cant understand why nobody did remake of that. This can be strong fuji bait with Yabuki and Rikishi
It doesn't need a remake, it's perfect like it is.
You got a lazy bunch of shits here what did you expect?
Is that the monthly sequel? I thought nobody translated those anymore.
Picked up Rookies because of this thread, shit is fucking gold. I love delinquent manga.
Any sports anime with a female cast, like Taishou Yakyuu Musume (and GuP)
You mean Kaleido Star.
That one wrestling anime that recently came out is with nothing but girls
Watched it, loved it. But you are right, I forgot about it.
W..watched 2 episodes of that. Please.. ;_;
Too bad it's complete shit. I think everyone dropped it after first ep.
>implying you were watching it for anything but the plot and backstory
I pretty much checked out every first episode that season. It wasn't even good ecchi.
Princess Nine is about a girls baseball team. There are boys in it, but the main focus is the girl's baseball team.
I'd avoid it if you don't like heavy romance related drama though. The main romance subplot completely killed my mood when watching it.
You can't be this fucking autistic can you?
I liked it, but it was focused too much on magic pitches instead of actual pitching and proper breaking balls.
Easier to remember than senshadou/panzerfahren.
Sagat played baseball?
The hell are you talking about it sounds so fucking retarded I find it quite embarrassing to even think it. Also panzerfahren is official anyway.
The greatest page of baseball manga.
Oh boy, here we go.
Lacrosse is pretty popular with girls in the US too. Or at least where I live most of the private high schools had girl's lacrosse teams.
sport manga is one of the three things japan should not be nuked
That ice skating one someone mentioned earlier seems promising. And Aim For the Ace is an oldie.
>there will never be an anime adaptation of Swan
Ace wo Nerae has a lot of important male characters.
God fucking shit, can't find the stupid ass movies anywhere, starting to give up.
Also, do you know anything about the live action, if its any good?
Sports shows can be solid, Major, Ippo, Eyeshield, and One Outs were enjoyable. There are quite a few I can't get into though, like Kuroko and Prince of Tennis.
Kuroko is really fun though.
I just watched Ofuri. It was alright.
I didn't even realize this has a season 1
Prince of tennis gets so ridiculous you can pass it off as a comedy.
We need an ice hockey anime/manga.
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.
Man now I'm watching HxH and some of the battles in CA remind me a lot of One Outs dunno if it is because based madhouse made both shows but both have the same strategic feeling into it.
>good chance to be starters in their first years
>made it to HS without knowing what a changeup is
Cannot suspend my disbelief any longer.
What did you expect they were playing grass-lot baseball most of the time, and since none of his team mates were that good all their actual matches would always end in awful losses. So he had no time to learn about breaking balls since he was all out in keeping the team together.
>Can't into PoT and Kuroko
That makes no sense at all, they all pulled the same bullshit moves and follow the same steps and concept.
/a/ have a bunch of murata cocksuckers who would praise him and say that his manga are different and special while criticizing other series who did similar things and even before him, don't read much into it.
Its highschool bro and they're both "special cases". Furya has a fast ball that runs in the high 90's and Eijun can legitemetly throw 2 different types of fastballs cutters and 4seamers
I never knew how much the catcher can influence the game, Is it like this in professional baseball too?
Yes, the catcher on top of being the guy who handles what pitches to throw in what counts, he is also the voice of the manager on the field. Gif related illustrates my point
Yowapedal is gay/pandering as fuck.
DnA has literally no pandering.
That crotch grab was for comedy, god dammit.
Read Rookies and call it baseballshit.
I dare you.
>DnA has literally no pandering.
>Implying my boypussy doesn't get wet every time I see Chris-senpai is on screen.
Chris being a good character doesn't equal pandering.
Miyuki please stay
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.
Kuroko no Basket doesn't represent the majority of sports manga, you clearly don't know what you are talking about.
How is Yowamushi pandering
YP is an anime for kids. That's why it's ridiculous.
You are just watching the wrong series
>Its highschool bro
High school baseball over there is a lot more serious business.
>Most looking forward to Haikyuu
>Not PING PONG aka most realist while also being surrealist as fuck manga
DAT SHIT TASTE
Middle school baseball isn't. He played for fun, and only with talent, barely knowing anything. The only reason he got in Seidou is because he had mad talent.
Speaking of sports anime, anyone know of any half-decent rugby animu or mango?
Most of the fighters career ends a year after their debut. The one's that keep doing it are constantly injuring their bodies and killing themselves with weight cutting.
The closest is Eyeshield 21
> Name me one sports manga that isnt fujoshit bait or with ridiculous unrealistic super power move.
Stop reading shounen sports. Read REAL (basketball), Koukou no hito, Gaku (mountaineering), Ping Pong, Zero (box), All-Rounder Meguru (MMA), Teppu, Yawara! (judo), Noririn (cycling), et etcetera.
Everyone in Ippo is build like a heavy weight boxer.
I was just giving examples. I mentionded those two, because they are the last ones I watched a bit.
I doubt that there is a sports manga that represents the majority of sports manga.
I am not going to ask for recommendations, because as I mentioned before, I want the impossible, a sports manga that doesn't make the impossible. It is ok to call a normal pen "Imprinter of Knowledge", but don't tell me that it makes you score better at tests. A manga that describes a sport the same way you would read at a newspaper, or hear at radio.
>They are small as fuck
>what's every boxers who aren't infighters
Ping Pong does just that. So does SD. Etc.
Even Takamura is only a middleweight, there is no excuse.
Yea but you see the thing is that both of them are unique talents. Furya has a high 90's fastball that overpowered everyone and he can bat and field exceptionally well. He never had to learn anything other than a fastball because it wasnt needed.
Eijins team was garbage so he never had time to improve. Even with that he can naturally throw two types of fastballs, a Cutter and a 4seamer.
No. He is a HW. Do you even read the manga? He kills himself during weight-management then bounces back.

> High school baseball over there is a lot more serious business.
Isn't Spring Koshien starting soon, like in a month or so? I hope there will be live streaming again.
This post reeks of normalfaggtory, I doubt you even read anything, you don't know shit about sport manga dynamics or characters archetypes and you are misinformed as fuck.
Most modern sport manga derivate from 2 old titles, the more drama heavy just follow Ashita no Joe and the more action oriented and exaggerated ones follow Captain Tsubasa.
>Isn't Spring Koshien starting soon
Yes it is! I cant fucking wait to see some kid blow his arm out after throwing 80000 pitches
It's funny because Ashita no Joe is basically the genre king and still unbeaten while Captain Tsubasa is trash.
Doesn't make it any more palatable.
I'll just take this anon's advice. >>102211080
> This post reeks of normalfaggtory
It sure does, but he has a point. The bad thing is that there are manga out there which are meeting his criteria but he is lazy to find them. Here is a lot without any super-powers. >>102211080
> Captain Tsubasa is trash
The only trashy there is the art.
Are you retarded? Thats enough to get by in middles school. ALOT of pitchers dont start learning new pitches until the higschool level anyway. Diamond no ace is written by someone who was a professional baseball player.
Pretty much the only type of anime I'm sure too enjoy is sports anime. Even the bad ones are good.
Let me guess, you never played baseball in middle school or highschool,right? Most pitchers dont actually develop secondary pitches until highschool.
Why is rugby so homosexual
>tfw there are no good soccer manga/anime
Not even the fujoshit must be bad, I love Oofuri. Subtle homoerotic undertones, still a great show.
With trash I meant that it aged horribly while other superpower sports manga beat it left and right.
Ashita no Joe is a timeless classic. No manga managed to make a character like Joe.
It's called football and there is Giant Killing which is pretty good.
> Not liking giant men doing manly things with balls
What is ganbare kickers?
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).
I will start looking more into it(except for ping pong, that bad anatomy makes me uncomfortable).
That was for fujos? I watched it on TV when I was in elementary school, I don't even remember.
>in the end it just looked like a battle with superpowers instead of a sport
Again, that's a small minority of sports manga.
If I say football people will think handegg.
I've watched and read giant killing, It's alright - I want something like oofuri, dia no ace, kuroko but for soccer you know? Just high schoolers going through the process of soccer as a team.
Of course not, meant to quote that anon
It was probably a misquote.
>Dissing Matsumoto one of the best mangaka out there
developing pitches != being ignorant of them. Even elementary kids know what a fucking change up is.
>Diamond no ace is written by someone who was a professional baseball player.
And yet it still resorts to shonen tropes. Even Major gradually moved away from its gyroball nonesense.
>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
Like what? Please dont say "Raw talent" because you know thats complete shit.
Unless you count teamwork as a shounene trope and if you do then ALL SPORTS manga are eliminated
Dropped,come back when you can form big boy opinions using big boy words
>People think Shounen Superpowered sports manga are the majority
This in between things are even worse. They always take broscience for pure facts.
You realize Sawamura didn't give a fuck about proffesional baseball and he just played for fun right?
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.
>Even elementary kids know what a fucking change up is.
I didn't until this episode, but I fucking hate sports. I still don't really get what a forkball is.
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.
Even if they aren't superpowers a lot of sport series tend to be similar to battle series, char1 uses ability A, char2 react using ability B, char1 use his special ability and leaves char2 concerned, char2 reminds something and pull ability C which is super effective!
Go watch Oofuri.
>only one good Ace wo Nerae doujin on Exhentai
>I still don't really get what a forkball is.
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
That video is about the cutter,its the moving fastball sawamura throws
The forkball is what happens in my gif
Yowamushi Pedal is pretty much a gay battle shounen.
I love KnB for that reason. It's like it was a battle shonen.
>mfw major has good tier doujins
Ippo is supposed to be more in the realistic realm and they don't stop pulling bullshit punches and their endurance is outside of this world I can see what you say, I think that's what make them so enjoyable though.
>>102213878 like he say I find that fascinating.
Now that I look at it again after all these years, it IS kind of cheesy, but I like the Eyeshield 21 OP1
It's a myth. People were mistaking Dice-K's shuuto as a gyro when he first came over.
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. The gyroball is sometimes confused with the shuuto, another pitch used in Japan.
Slam Dunk most memorable moments happened outside the main matches, the basket matches were the weaker part in the manga to me.
>you will never watch Major for the first time ever again
God damn. I still remember how hyped I got whenever Goro stepped on the mound during S5
>Implying nerds would not have modified it if it did not exist
Are you autistic?
No, he kills himself to make Junior Middleweight. His natural weight class is Middleweight.
>end of every season
>Kokoro ee starts playing
I never forget that page when the dinosaur appeared when someone was using a special attack it got really crazy.
It isn't either, he is on the heaviest class by his normal weight.
I marathoned Oofuri and it was fantastic.
How many of you actually play baseball?
I love this.
I played on my Higschool team and i join a summer league ever other year
I live in Chile and I've never seen profesional equipment or a field. I'll never know if I had talent or not. ;_;
why was Agon such a OP peice of shit?
Takamura is on a personal quest to conquer 6 different weight classes (Junior Middleweight through Heavyweight), and is doing pretty well moving up the ladder. So far he has become champion in 2 out of 6 weight classes:
1. WBC Junior Middleweight Champion (154 lbs)
2. WBC Middleweight Champion (160 lbs)
Pic related, Takamura fighting for the Middleweight Champion belt against David Eagle, the Middleweight Champion.
I don't like real sports, I only like them in anime because japan add their crazy touch which make them enjoyable. Also in my country baseball is only known because of american movies.
And he is a natural HW.
I already knew that, but it's not his natural weight, that's why he fasted before matches.
I played for a year or two in elementary school.
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!”
GBF can be considered a sport series, even if it's more a fictional sport like Bayblade.
>that guy licking the glove
Go read/watch Hajime no Ippo now.
I rather enjoy them more than other type of anime.
It's good for a cheap adrenaline/ motivation rush now and then.
Are you doubting Namikawa?
