    Talking Sports Anime

    Do you have a favorite sports anime? Or perhaps not a favorite, but a few you did kind of like? What are they? Tell us about them. Here are some of mine, in no particular order:

    Big Windup. The star pitcher for a losing high school baseball team always gets the blame for their losses. Going to a new school, he is about to give up on the sport until he meets the new schoolís female coach and the teamís catcher who help turn him into a winner. But they do overdue the wuss thing a bit.

    March Come in Like a Lion. This is about the trials and tribulations of a teenage shogi master. Shogi is Japanese chess, and I do consider it a sport. At the level our hero plays, it is both psychologically and physically draining. And he does get drained.

    Haikyuu. Two high school volleyball players are rivals and hate each other. Then they find themselves on the same team. The anime series actually gives us a good look at most of the players and their stories. We also see things from the losing teamís point of view. Quite odd for a sports anime. But we get some good lessons on team work.

    Hi Score Girl. OK, Iím pushing the definition on this one. But video games are a competitive sport, arenít they? Top players have to be in shape. Here we have the sport in the middle of a teenage love triangle.

    Megalo Box. In todayís world of professional prize fighting, fighters are aided by artificial robotic attachments, making their hits harder and more accurate. One Junk Dog decides to go without, and with the aid and sacrifice of friends, gets the crap beaten out of him as he rises to the top. You should see what the losers look like after the bout.

    Youíre next.

    You think table games are not a sport? Shogi can take it's toll, as we look into the mind of our hero.

    I admit listing Hi Score Girl as a sports anime is a bit of a stretch, but the competition can be physically and mentally grueling.

    I guess Yu Yu Hakusho could count. But then in the same line of thought, so would all the Dragon Ball series.

    I don't remember too much about Yu Yu Hakusho. I watched the first season or a bit more, and it was pretty good. But then it got redundant and boring to me. I stopped watching after a while. I don't remember all that many tournaments. I seem to remember one or two.

    And yes DBZ would count. Anything with a referee probably counts. Even video games like .hack and Swordart

    I have another sports anime to list. It's called Levius, and the sport is metal boxing. Yes, it sounds the same as Megalo Box, only Levius has better characters and better animation. I will reserve judgement on the story for now. I have only gotten through episode 4, but what I have seen I like. I will do a write-up on the series once I complete it.

    And I just started watching yet another sports anime. It's Kuroko's Basketball. It's somewhat similar to Haikyuu, although a different sport. Both have a character who is a bit into himself, and who has to learn the value of team work. The twist in Kuroko's Basketball is the main character who is quite and almost totally unnoticeable, but who uses that to his advantage on the court.

    There are 26 episodes on Netflix Streaming, but I am only through episode 4. So I have no final judgement on this one, and it may take a while before I post any review.

    But a sports festival episode does not make an anime a sports anime.
