Why Sports Anime Interests Me The Most

Why Sports Anime Interests Me The Most

Like many of you, I love anime. And I especially like anime about sports. In this article I would like to tell you about my history and why sports anime interests me the most. When I was younger (most likely in elementary and middle school), anime was in a good portion of my passion for Japan. I wanted to watch all kinds of genres in the series.    Sports and Anime Sports and anime have an overlap in my life. As I go into high school, there was soccer and other things that made anime (a big proportion to my love for Japan) a lot less ambitious for me to try. The reason being was that since I started to play soccer more and learned about the other aspects of Japan, anime just started to become a lot less approachable.

The One Valuable Lesson I Learned from Baka and Test

The One Valuable Lesson I Learned from Baka and Test

There was an anime show that is considered one of my personal favorites, and it was named Baka and Test. I loved that show so much that it was one of the very few shows (inside and outside of anime) that I had watched more than once. There were even times that I watched it more than Inazuma Eleven, a soccer anime, and I love soccer so so much. Why I love Baka and Test I love Baka and Test  because it was an extremely funny and touching show in my opinion and because while it does show the average anime stereotypes here and there, it really does make you drawn into the show.

I am not saying that Baka and Test are...

Japanese animation (or anime that many Westerners called it) is basically one of the biggest reasons as to why many people want to come to Japan. Anime is arguably one of the best ways for kids (and young teenagers) to learn about the quality life lessons that cartoons and reality shows can't really teach or hasn't taught them the right way. Plus, anime does have the unpredictability that can keep the viewers on their feet and guessing.  What if you're the person that never watched anime before? Or the person that wants to start watching but doesn't really know where to start? While I am not an anime expert (just not a complete beginner), I'll show you the five anime series that you can start. NOTE: It's from my perspective, and there are other people that would say differently or have their different point-of-view of what series to start your journey...
