Yo thegreatest06! I think you should read more sports manga. The ones you have read is llike the new generation of sports manga. Why don't try classics lilke slamdunk! You won't regret it
Yay, I found "my name is teppi" online but the quality is not quite good though.
Captain Tsubasa and Slam Dunk, densetsu shoot are classics. All those new ones...Meeh. Except for Hungry Heart Wild Striker. Whistle was not as good as Hungry Heart though. I didn't like the main character. Eyeshield was "okay".
Wow, I didn;t know that. thx for such info ^^Originally Posted by SantaBla
You should read also (or watch) Captain Tsubasa and Aoki Densetsu Shoot! One of the best soccer a&m xD And:Originally Posted by strangeanimefreak
Yeah, that titles are classicOriginally Posted by SantaBla
mostly people with athletic backround are the one attracted with sport manga, i box from 2 years now and still going on because of HnI
a little otaku
PS: added a new sport manga thread called Ashita no Joe, back in the seventies it was the best manga/anime ever, some hardcore anime fans may recognize it here in MH its a boxing manga so give it a try
Link to the thread:
Well, I've only watched PoT and that was great... I can't read sports manga though, I have terrible visualization.. can't see the action in my head that well.
Hmm.. I read some of the other posts.. And I liked all that was mentioned.. I like all of the sports manga I've read..
My favorites.. Well it is very hard to decide.. My favorite is Prince of Tennis, that one was easy to decide.. Since it was my first sports genre manga.. Aside from the first one.. I really liked Hajime no Ippo, Initial D, Eyeshield 21, Dan Doh!!, Yuuto, almost all of the Adachi Manga, Whistle!, Captain Tsubasa, Cross Over, I'll(Generation Basket), Bowling King, Fight no Akatsuki, Noritaka, and others which I can't remember right now... All of those tie for second for me... Though I suppose the ones I can't remember tie for third since obviously they weren't that memorable...
I always love sport manga, though some of it usually unrealistic.
My favorite is Slam Dunk and Prince of Tennis. Both of them has a one-of-a-kind main character.
And also Eyeshield21. I don't like and dont even know anything about American Football before I read it. But after that, well... it's seems pretty interesting ^^
I think the first sports manga I read was Mr Fullswing? But I'm not really sure XD; I wasn't really a sports person at all. Always kinda liked baseball though. Only sport I was really remotely interested in ('cause I was good at batting as a kid, haha).
Then I started reading ES21 and was like "yes, sports!!" (and also "yes, Shin!!" XD)
Actually, both were reccomended to me by the same person xD! I just realized.
I don't think I've read many others, though. Bit of Whistle! and I'll, I think is all. :S
Yes, I do like sport mangas, eventhough there are some that I had not read personally on manga, but first seen on its anime version...
Just like Slam Dunk which is the first sport anime that I had watch...I didn't know yet about its manga, I think after 3x of watching this anime, that is the time I'd know about its manga, and read the remaining chapters after the end of the anime..
Hungry Heart Wild Striker
This is my second, but I had only watch this on its anime version...I had not yet read its manga...since I didn't find yet any manga downloads or online on this one...
Prince of Tennis
This is the latest manga that I am currently reading on...even if in the first place I had no interest in tennis, but after watching the anime version, I was getting interested in reading the manga of it..

my favourite sports manga at the moment is eyeshield21!! it was awesome!!
Before this i was sooo deeply in Slamdunk. pity there is no continuation though.
have anyone heard of Natsuko heuichi (i hope i didn't misspell her name)?? her comic, J-Dream was very famous in my country a few years ago (i'm from malaysia). it was about a young, talented and funny footballer, akaboshi taka and his teammates leading japan team into youth world cup. i was searching it all over the net but it was nowhere to find. if anyone know where the scanlation is, please tell me okay?
