it's such a beautiful sport


Froggy’s Sports Manga Recc List!!!

as a quick excuse EXPLANATION: I generally don’t like sports manga.  And despite the domination of series such as Haikyuu, Kuroko and Daiya in the current anime/manga fan landscape, I like to imagine that there are others that are like me….  others who find sports manga tedious for a variety of reasons.

And thus, this list was born out of me doing backflips around the definition of what counts as a “sport.”  Basically, it came down to this: if the manga takes on a structure that is standard of a sports manga, or people are competing for something, I decided it was a sport!!!

Additionally, I tried to find manga that subverted a major thing that I don’t like about sports manga, and that is a complete lack of female characters.  You can expect most of these titles to have a strong presence of female characters in the plot (purely fueled by my bitterness at how much of a misogynist furudate is) !!!!

Anyways, titles and basic explanations under the cut!

Thanks Captain 6/?

Derek’s been a leader from day one. He’s been the head of his class in every way, both on the field and in terms of character. … That’s hard to do. Being undefeated for 20 years? In New York City? That’s remarkable. When you realize, an hour before the game, 50,000 people are in their seats, ready to go, excited, energetic. When you see Michael Jordan andCal Ripken, two of the biggest icons of my lifetime — I thought it was a great day. I’m sorry I wasn’t there.

Omg akaashi looks like he's going to run into bokutos arms

for posterity: did i save this pic or did this pic save me?

which fuels one of my favourite headcanons that seem to be popular in the fandom: every time they win or score a spectacular point, bo immediately picks akaashi up and spins him around, like at this point they’ve perfected the grace and speed needed for professional dancing idk, until akaashi is dizzy but everyone is still cheering and laughing and clapping them on the back, komi is demanding bokuto spin him next,


Aston Martin Is Bringing Its Distinctive Brand of “Power, Beauty, and Soul” to the Sea

Aston Martin sports cars are synonymous with British luxury, power, and cool. They’re fast. They’re refined. They’re built to ultra-high standards. And they evoke a certain feeling that’s fostered by a company that respects tradition and understands its rich history while also constantly pushing the limits of what’s possible.

And now Aston Martin has teamed up with Quintessence Yachts in Holland to create boats–the AM37 and the AM37 S–that are specifically designed to bring the British car builder’s legendary performance, quality, and “soul” to the sea.

Kazakhstani figure skater Denis Ten has started watching YoI and in his twiiter handle says that Otabek Altin resembles him and that bike scene was from a photo taken last year!

Yeah,there are some similarities between the two of them,so maybe Kubo was inspired by him!! It’s so beautiful to see skaters watching yoi and talking about it! Also its so beautiful that someone got inspired by this beautiful sport and decided to show it to the world!! Personally I always liked ice skating but after yoi i fell in love with it!!

Here is Denis Ten tweets for Yuri!! On Ice for those who are interested to see his tweets!

Day 4 of Regisa Week: Other Sports

Hey! I made another things! :D

Sorry I never make pretty and quality things. Im very slow with the drawing and the arting. Also, I don’t know about you guys but I consider color guard a sport. And I even thought of a little cute thing to go with it (and I have urges to turn this into a AU fanfiction. MY GOSH).

Rei has always thought color guard was such a beautiful sport (Its totally beautifully amazing) and has been apart of it for years. He has always been one the most skilled and known for his “beautiful form”. But then Nagisa comes along and has a lot of skill in it too (Not to mention looks beautiful to Rei hur hur hur). At first they butt heads about it, but soon grow to become friends and they end up having solos together when they perform. And then fall in love and blah blah blah.

PS: Nagisa joins not only did his sisters do it and it looks fun (and is), but because he saw Rei perform and knew he had to chase after him.
