ES21, PoT, and i would like to get into Slam Dunk
Slam Dunk 100%
I prefer Prince of Tennis over other sport manga. The New Prince of Tennis has been pretty impressive so far as well.
ES21 only upto the end of the christmas bowl, the world cup was just garbage
that's it for me as far as "sports" manga.
Slam Dunk was awesome in every aspect of it. Certainly the number one for me.
Eyeshield 21 was good 'till the Dinosaurs game, but had a rough downhill after that. PoT was entertaining for a while, but I got bored with it halfway through. I just found it somehow shallow, and Ryoma is just dang annoying...
Ashita no Joe is epic. I loved it, all the drama in a series that's so seventies in all the other aspects. Really a hardworker on the developement of modern shonen. Come on, it was the first ever manga to have enough devoted fans to have funeral for a character that died in a manga. That's something, isn't it?
Also, Hikaru no Go kinda goes in the sport category. It was very interesting, but the problem was that I really couldn't get a touc on the games. "Wow, that's an exelent move!! It totally changes the flow of the game" What? It does? How, I don't get it? Well whatever, I'll keep reading because it's so exiting and intense...

and i like Kuroko no Basket too
Eyeshield 21 (American Football) - It has a little thing that everyone can relate too and having it come out a little after my home team won the Superbowl.
Captain Tsubasa (Soccer) - Probably the manga that influenced Megaman Soccer and my favorite anime "Dragon League" which I'm still trying to find all 26 episodes.
One Outs (Baseball) - Kinda psychological but I seem to like how the main character thinks.
There's more, I can't remember them too well.

does Battle Royale count?
I just read two sports manga - es21 and captain tsubasa.
And i read Captain Tsubasa just because it was one of my first Animes i ever watched years ago but i was/am very disapointed of the artwork......(even though it was released 1981 - 1988).......but i still like the anime (foremost because of the good old memories )
But i really like ES21 - its a great manga and sadly its completed now
Well I started Area no Kishi a while ago and I definitely support this sports manga a lot. Good steary, likeable characters, etc It's all about soccer and at this moment my most favorite sports manga ^^
^You won't find many better. Which reminds me, I have quite a few unread chapters to catch up on. Try Ahiru no Sora when you get a chance, the only other sports manga I've read that's as good as Area.
