Okay, okay...so GTO isn't really a sport anime unless you count the fact that the hero is a black belt martial artist. However it IS one of my favourites despite that. Great Teacher Onizuka (グレート・ティーチャー・オニズカ, Gurēto Tīchā Onizuka?), officially abbreviated to GTO, is a shōnen manga, anime, and live-action series created by Tohru Fujisawa. It is the story of Eikichi Onizuka, a 22 year-old ex-bōsōzoku member, and his quest to be the greatest teacher in Japan. GTO is a continuation of Tohru Fujisawa's other manga series Shonan Junai Gumi (lit. "Shōnan True Love Group") and Bad Company. It won the 1998 Kodansha Manga Award for shōnen
Hajime no Ippo, known in English as the Fighting Spirit was my first exposure to sporting anime. It did not take me long to realise that I was hooked on the bitter/sweet adventures of young Ippo who, like many boxers, began his career as a victim to bullies and who finds in boxing, not a means of revenge against those bullies but a way of finding inner strength and meaning. For Ippo, boxing brings him alive. The series is an emotional roller coaster with humour and tragedy both to be found in realistic proportions. The repeptitive animation can be forgiven when the plot is so fast-moving and the characters so likeable (or dislikable).
Thee have been several spin offs from the 'Ippo' series including 2 movie-length offerings and several vide games. The most recent is a Wii boxing game
How about you? What is your favourite sports anime and why? Oh, and by the way, YES, I DO love boxing! :)

Welcome. I believe that anime and sport were made for each other. Anime (and manga) specialise in that quality of a human being to triumph over adversity and win against the odds. To rise above the mundane and the haters and to keep your eyes on the prize. Anime also gives credit to the quiet wisdom of older characters - something often overlooked in modern society. I also like the way sports anime gives time to explaining technique as well as to plot etc. So if u like anime ...or sport... try both together. You won't be disappointed!
