Anime for every interest!

Anime covers a lot of subjects and it's always fun learning about stuff you wouldn't learn about otherwise. Volleyball, camping, mahjong, orchestra and much more. I've handpicked the ones that focuses on teaching the audience and restricted it to one entry per subject. → Rated with triangles△, where 1 triangle means loads of story and not so educational, and 5 triangles means it's almost entirely educational with slight story ← Sorted alphabetically by subject matter.
