My Rough Ranking of Sports Anime

Anything in the top half of this list, I recommend. Others are hit-and-miss. In my mind, the bottom two anime in this list missed the mark by a lot. Keep in mind that this is a very rough ranking. There are a few titles in here that I haven't seen in years, so it's hard to compare them to the newer ones.

I didn't rank this right after the last time I saw it, so these scores will likely be adjusted after my next viewing.

I still haven't seen the sequel, unfortunately.
