Sports Anime. What makes a sports anime great? Their harsh training? Passion for the sports? Or cool characterization of the protagonists?
The answer depends actually. If you like to see all flashy and unrealistic moves from a sports anime, it would be one thing. If you like the hard working never giving up the mentality of the main character and eventually him becoming a badass that would be different too. And if you want to see some chemistry between the characters and their relationship, it’s another thing.
Keeping that in mind, we tried to make a list of top 10 sports anime. We understand if you have a different opinion. Let’s just get started, shall we?
An anime of the main character breaking himself into pieces. The main character deeply cares about his friends. But instead of standing beside them in one place, he wanted to make friends into a rival. Trust me, it may sound a little weird. But this is quite an enjoyable journey to watch.
One thing you might want to keep in mind though. If you are searching for a very thrilling anime, this may seem a little bit off the point.
The Opening songs of this anime are spot on. Especially the 2nd and 6th Opening. The lyric, theme and composition – they did a brilliant job, I must say.
