    I don't think the sports aspect is the main draw for a lot of series that may revolve around some type of sport, though.

    Val, are you the one who put like 4 different anime under "what's your favorite anime?" lol? It's the only one with Railgun and S; G, and I remember you saying you liked both of those quite a bit.

    @val No normally not
    I clicked Shoujo-Ai I think.
    I thought for sure I clicked yuri.

    Edit: I think the list is a bit shifted off by one.

    Usually the only sports anime that are really good are the ones that don't really have the sport as the main focus. Like One Outs that's pretty much Akagi just with baseball, or Cross Game where the main focus is the character interactions and development and the sport seems like it's just thrown in as an afterthought.

    Have you watched the Slam Dunk anime, if so, how is it? I've heard people say that it isn't all that good compared to the manga, so I'm wondering whether I should watch it or read it when the time comes.

    I suppose you're sorta right.
    I guess what I was trying to say is that sports anime that only try to hook you with the sport in question (or the homolust), tend to be pretty bland and uninteresting. Especially if they try to make the sport more interesting by making the players have "super powers". There's a line between too much realism and too much battle shounen that sports anime tend to miss completely.

    I thought it was pretty good. I haven't read the manga at all, that's probably better since the anime just kind of randomly ends which I hate

    I suppose you're sorta right.

    I guess what I'm trying to say is that they either need to make the characters have a fullworthy life outside of whatever sport they're playing, or just somehow make sport actually interesting.
    Watching most sports anime I crave more content where the characters go about their daily lives, not doing training camps or being in the middle of 10-episode long games, because the actual sport parts are usually the most boring parts of those shows. I can actually just think of two sport anime where I found the sport to be portrayed to be interesting, and that's Hajime no Ippo and One Outs.

    Aaaaaaaaand, I clicked Shoujo-ai as least favorite because I have no idea what it's about.
    Just like I had no idea what "Ecchi" was until a week ago when I first tried it.

    Seriously, and that explosion was awful. I also voted for yuri as a favorite.

    Was there a loli one or did I forget about it/miss it?

    Yeah.. that was me. I'm sorry, I just can't choose a favorite. Someone asked me it a few weeks ago and I agonized it for over an hour before narrowing it down to 4.


    I'm okay with the results to a degree though. The top favorite ones where fine and I was happy all 30 chose subbed over dubbed.

    Lol, no. Didn't think about that. I don't know if you'd even consider that a genre lol. I suppose it could be.
