Best sports anime?
Not even close.
PRINCE OF TENNIS
The first season was really good, with an awesome mix of drama and sport. The following seasons weren't as good though.
The 3rd season's final match was pretty epic though, on par or slightly better than the Yokohama one.
Damn it, I want more Ryoko. ;_;
Hajime no ippo..
Major or Hajime no ippo.
Is it even realistic for a pitcher to be able to survive in the Triple AAA Minors/Major League with ONLY a 95 miles+ fastball?
Didn't happen in the anime, anon.
Well it is a ..... G Y R O B A L L dun dun dunnn
No but it has an anime.
But seriously, gaysball is way better than major.
It does exist... theoretically.
But the ES21 manga is pretty fuckwin too.
(LOL @ THE ANIME. Facepalm at the dub.)
i hate sports anime yet i loved this series
watch overdrive instead of that gayseball shit
and i enjoyed Capeta
Capeta was pretty win, especially the miracle rain battle, but its 'original anime ending' was pretty shit.
Sports manga are often quite fuck win, but the anime adaption rarely so.
Ippo ended prematurely... reasonably well, but it should've at least shown till the epic Hawk/Takamura match.
ES21 and Captain Tsubasa anime are sacrilegious compared to the mango.
Every sports anime wishes they aired in NHK.
Aww, nobody mentioned Slam Dunk.
Best? Not sure if it is, but it sure was more entertaining than any of the titles mentioned in this thread.
You know why Gayseball is superior to other sportan animu? It's because it's mature and adult seinen.
Golden 23 is also mature and adult seinen, of people with crazy soccer skills.
Fuck yeah, Dempsey Roll was the greatest series climax I've ever seen!
Sports manga are usually the best type of manga out there anime adaptions are never as good though. Also slam dunk is by far the best.
Eyeshield 21 is manly
