☆ Sports Anime ☆

The best sports anime, in order, for lazy brats (like myself) - because let's face it, none of us weebs are that sporty, are we? Stop lying to yourself. Eat that cake.
1 Kuroko's Basketball

Kuroko's Basketball

This is one of the greatest (sports)anime out there. Because the plot of the anime can be simply put as 'basketball', there is clearly put a lot of work in writing some depth in those characters. You will learn the definition of badass intimidation.

You will feel the ball. You will become the ball.

Definitely worth watching all 3 seasons (it follows up). 

2 Haikyuu!!


Another sports anime that has put a lot of thought and time into creating those characters. Great rivalry too. You won't know what team to root for because you'll get to know everyone and you'll love them as your own.

3 Free! - Iwatobi Swim Club

Free! - Iwatobi Swim Club

If you like watching some sport, but you're also a thirsty ass bitch: this anime is for you. You'll learn a great deal about the way competative swimming works, and you can stare at animated hot (teenage) bods at the same time. Combine that with a high dose of angst and flashbacks, and you got 'Free'.

4 Yowamushi Pedal

Cycling. Yeah.. I know, right? Doesn't sound too exciting does it?

This anime will make you love it.

It will make you want to buy a bicycle, even if you haven't moved your ass the past 4 months. Character depth present as well! Lots of it. Also, close interaction between guys from different teams: that's a new one.

5 Yuri!!! on Ice

Yuri!!! on Ice

Beautiful intro song, beautiful Russians. Not your usual sports anime, since there's no teams to root for, just individuals. Flamboyant ice-skating, go!

Also, if you're a yaoi lover: check it out for sure.

6 Ookiku Furikabutte

In my opinion, a better baseball anime than 'Ace of the Diamond' is. Watching the anxious main character fail, really hits close to home. Hilarious.
