Ah, sports. There’s nothing like a young boy or girl discovering themselves through the passion of a sport and forming friendships that will last a lifetime. Anime has a broad and exciting way of portraying these exact situations; from Mahjongg players in Saki, to young beautiful swimmers in Free!, or buff but sensitive rugby players in All Out! We’ve got all the sports anime characters and recommendations you could want.
The sports genre is rather unique and there’s an anime for almost any sport you can think of, and that in itself helps anime spread its appeal. Yes, we have recommended the likes of Haikyuu, Prince of Tennis, and Hajime no Ippo, but we feel for the 2020 edition of this list, it’s best to give you some fresh recommendations!
