Top 10 Sports Anime Series

Ping-Pong The Animation

If you can get used to the animation style of this anime you are in for one of the best rides of your life. It is such an amazing and overlooked anime(because of its animation style most of the time), but just watch the first two episodes and you will not be able to leave your seat without completing this one.Ping Pong The Animation

Slam Dunk

A masterpiece of a sports anime. This might be the sports anime that started it all. Amazing comedy scenes, Original and one of the best storylines, and one hell of a main character that you will definitely get behind. What else do you need? The only downfall will be animation, but regarding the anime that was made in the 90s, you really can’t expect much.

Eyeshield 21

A anime about Rugby, No not rugby but American Football, Lol. Eyeshield 21 is a really unique and good anime to watch. You will love all the characters of the anime. The final arc of the anime felt kinda rushed, but it was still a very satisfying ending.

Prince Of Tennis

If you want to watch a sports anime where amazing characters just ruin their opponents, go for this anime. It is one of those anime that is kind of unrealistic in terms of the abilities of the players but if you are into that stuff you should watch it.

Kuroko No Basket

Another anime where overpowered characters will just bash their opponents until they face another overpowered opponent. Kuroko No Basket also shows some unrealistic abilities of the players, but when it was out it was considered to be the best sports anime around.Prince Of Tennis

Yowamushi Pedal

Let’s just mention all the unrealistic sorts of anime now. Yowamushi Pedal is also on the a,e boat of being unrealistic with those superpowers but still a good anime to watch. This anime also has some inconsistencies, but overall it is a pretty decent watch.

Captain Tsubasa

One of the classics. People grew up while watching this anime. The anime had a remake in 2018, so if you don’t like the classic animation of 1983 you can watch the new one. Both of them are great, but the new one might have an edge because of the animation quality so just go for it.captain tsubasa

Hajime No Ippo

Hajime No Ippo is One Piece of the sports genre. It has more than 1300 chapters and is still going strong. Manga doesn’t run for 1000 chapters if it is not loved by fans. The anime is also just as good as anime with perfect pacing and everything. It might be on the side of long anime with many episodes but it’s worth it.Hajime No Ippo Chapter 1308 Release Date

Ace Of Diamond

Personally favorite anime. Ace of Diamonds is the perfect underdog story that you can ask for. It is also one of the anime that has many episodes and it is still ongoing so you can catch up with it. The anime is reaching an interesting point with every passing episode so it is the best time to start this one.Ace Of Diamond Chapter 220


When Haikyuu manga ended last month it was trending as number 1 on Twitter worldwide. An anime doesn’t get this much popularity usually. But Haikyuu as in terms of pure sports is the greatest anime ever and with the 4th season just around the corner, you can start it right now.Haikyuu

Some Honorable Mentions:-

  • Initial D
  • Cross Game
