    Re: SOTW for Oct 1 - 7 (Sports Anime)

    Seeing as "sports anime" is a major subgenre, there should be more than enough to work with in the theme given. I don't think that fighting games or fantasy series should necesarily count (but I didn't choose the topic... so it's hard to know for certain what was meant by "sports anime") ^^;

    Had the phrasing been "sports in anime" and the examples given included "some character holding a baseball bat", I might think differently.

    sports anime:

    -Okiku Furikabutte (baseball)
    -MAJOR (baseball)
    -Touch (baseball)
    -Princess Nine (baseball)
    -Captain Tsubasa (soccer)
    -Whistle! (soccer)
    -Ganbare Kickers (soccer)
    -Slam Dunk (basketball)
    -Buzzer Beater (basketball)
    -Dear Boys (basketball)
    -I'll (basketball)
    -Dan Doh! (golf)
    -Ginban Kaleidoscope (figure skating)
    -Yawara! (judo)
    -Eyeshield 21 (American football)
    -Battle Athletess (track and field)
    -Ping Pong club (table tennis)
    -Prince of Tennis (tennis)
    -Ace wo Nerae! (tennis)
    -Hajime no Ippou (boxing)
    -Ashita no Joe (boxing)
    -Ring ni Kakerou (boxing)
    -Air Gear (in-line skating)
    -Tiger Mask (pro-wrestling)
    -Kinnikuman (pro-wrestling)
    -Ayane's High Kick (female pro-wrestling)
    -Slow Step (boxing, softball)


    I'm sure there are others...

    You're forgetting Suzuka, which was Track running and High Jump...

    I had originally included it... but as far as I know, there isn't any anime (according to wiki, it's just a manga series)

    The Official Suzuka Anime Website from FUNimation

    I've watched the entire series and the wikipedia entry for it also states that there's a TV Anime that ran for 26 episodes (Didn't cover half of the manga though...)

    Going over the "anime by genre" list under "sports" Suzuka was given as "Suzuka (manga)"

    I haven't read it, or seen it. But I assumed if the tag "(manga)" was included, it was because there was only manga.

    My bad.

    You'll find that if a series came out as a manga first, wikipedia will list its entry as a manga.

    I just searched four: Yu Yu Hakusho, Death Note, Dragonball and Slam Dunk. None have the (manga) tag in spite of all being manga first. I think it was reasonable to be confused... a good 60% of anime was manga first. Wiki's not listing them all with the "manga" tag. It seems fairly arbitrary.
