I have to say, the boys at Stage Zero, Mr. Rob Miles, and myself and been planning for Sports as a them for 3 years now. We have been dying for the chance to sink our teeth into this.
Think of all the great sports themed anime. I mean, is not catching Pokemon a sport?
Let's break it down (sorry Kevin)
Prince of Tennis-Unquestionably huge anime with its own live show!
Slam Dunk-The penultimate anime about Basketball that spawned so many titles
Hockey? You got it!
Go!! Southern Ice Hockey Club
My Heavenly Hockey Club
There has been boxing anime, baseball anime with most coming from Manga.
So, I know most of Fanime is not necessarily sportsmen, but most have appreciated a sports anime or two.
Now you will have to excuse me, I need to catch up on Eyeshield 21, my football anime!
