    I personally wouldn't say PoT is the DBZ of sports manga. I'm going to go with Drmke, Slam Dunk or maybe Captain Tsubasa.

    PoT definitely changed the sports manga genre to a certain extent or even shounen manga in general. It pretty much started the bishounen jump syndrome.

    I wouldn't say it's the sports manga of DBZ, I personally think it stands up on its own. It's the one of the first shounen series to gain a REALLY big female fanbase. Obviously whether it's a good or bad thing is up to you.

    Um, not really. It actually goes even further than that.

    I would give the title of bishounen shounen manga trendsetter to the works of Masami Kurumada. Of course i might be wrong.
    Clamp started their career drawing BL doujinshis for Saint Seiya. And since the works of Clamp influences many mangakas, we can say Masami Kurumada has greater impact on the industry than PoT.

    hm, since what i said is not really backed by solid research, what i said might not be accurate. Anyway, my point is, i wouldn't give any title to PoT now. Sure it is very popular, but i feel that it is still too fresh to be considered having a great impact...
    No offence to PoT fans.

    I would like to mention a very influential sports manga: Ashita no Joe.
    That manga still send shivers down my spine whenever i remembered the scenes, eventhough i read it 10 years ago. Truly a masterpiece. *bows*

    Oh. We weren't talking about the over the top abilities in DBZ that seemed to have transferred over to some sports manga? Whoops.

    If we're talking about in terms of straight up popularity, then yeah, Slam Dunk.

    I didn't do much research on my post, it's just from Bishounen Jump Syndrome from TvTropes. So don't quote me on the info.

    The difference with PoT compared to the series before is that Shounen Jump actually gave a nod about the large female fanbase and milked the fangirls without hiding. Hence it is called one of the first series to have 'bishounen jump syndrome', because the publisher/creator knowingly targeting fangirls. Insted in the past, where fangirls find the 'hints' themselves. I think I wrote my post somewhat confusingly, sorry if that confused anyone.

    PoT somewhat changed the way a shounen or a sports manga can be marketed. Obviously this isn't backed up with any sources, just my observations.

    @BL part. I've read about that before, it's really interesting in my opinion.

    Actually actually PoT could be the sports manga of DBZ in that point of view. -cough-

    Re: the DBZ of Sports Manga

    Slam Dunk still fits the bill a bit better than those mention because both at the time they were at their peak (early 90s) were literally the pillars of Jump. Ignoring One Piece, DBZ and Slam Dunk are easily the most popular manga in Jump history. Slam Dunk was even voted the most popular manga in Japan in 2007. Well its actually just my opinion

    Re: the DBZ of Sports Manga

    when comparing a sports manga to dbz, are we looking for a manga that gets progressively worse as it goes on? or is this about how influential the sports manga is, or how popular? =o

    Re: the DBZ of Sports Manga

    There are no strict rules for this thread, as long as you compare DBZ to a sports manga. Best selling, most influential, most whatever it is that makes DBZ DBZ

    My vote is for Eyeshield. Deliberately over the top, innovative art, emphasis on power ups and technique, and a sharp sense of humor. Eyeshield always seemed like a Jump action manga disguised as sports. To take the comparison further, ES21 and DBZ both lasted to long: DBZ should have ended after Frieza, ES21 withe the Christmas Bowl.

    Slam Dunk.... absolutely!!! if not Captain Tsubasa. But however, it seems that Kuroko may be the next big sports manga. The mangaka is obviously quite talented & has the "Slam Dunk" feel growing bit by bit. In fact, it pretty much fits with the whole "every 10 years, a new mangaka surpasses a legendary mangaka"
