got any sports manga recommendations?
Tell me your preferences? And what you’ve already read and liked? And it should be in English, right?
Ahiru no Sora (basketball) - I didn’t read it for quite some time though, but I really liked the guys
All Rounder Meguru (mixed martial arts, boys and girls) - Mikasa from SnK got her ABS from Maki-chan here
Baby Steps (tennis) - smart main character for a change~
Daiya no A (baseball) - do I need to comment on that? XD
Days (soccer) - looks promising
Dear Boys (basketball) - I need to catch up with it~ I really like players for whom winning is not the only goal
Gaku (mountain climbing and rescue) - really nice main character~
Giant Killing (soccer) - main character is a
weird unusual coach. Same as Oofuri, the GK world doesn’t end at the team. You also can see reporters, stuff from the companies, supporters, junior players, local people.
GuraZeni (baseball) - only 1 chapter in English though. Pro world and unusual main character
Haikyuu!! (volleyball) - do I need to comment on that? (2)
Hajime no Ippo (boxing) - good old classic sports manga. One of my first sports animangas
Hikaru no Go (go) - good old classic sports manga. One of my first sports animangas (2) I don’t know how many people tried to play go after that~
Koukou Kyuuji Zawa-san (baseball) - about a girl in a boys team
Kokou no Hito (Rock Climbing) - I really liked main character’s development
Major (baseball) - good for relaxation also all those references to pro players~ (probably why pro players like it very much XD )
One Outs (baseball) - more mind games than sports manga but it’s interesting
Ookiku Furikabutte (baseball) - do I need to comment on that? (3) I really like that parents and cheer squad are not forgotten
Ping Pong - I will be forever grateful for that ending
Real (basketball) - manga for thinking, not for fun
Rookies (baseball) - delinquents become good boys and aim for koshien
Slam Dunk (basketball) - good old classic sports manga. One of my first sports animangas (3)
Supinamarada! (hockey) - not ideal, but hockey!!
Teppuu (mixed martial arts) - girls. Unique and refreshing. The heroine is one of a kind
Whistle! (soccer) - cliché all the way, but still interesting
Yowamushi Pedal (Cycling) - great manga
I don’t like Adachi Mitsuru’s works, especially the famous “Touch”, but I more or less liked Cross Game
