Why is sports such a mediocre genre in anime? It's weird coz tournament trope is so hugely popular among shonen Japanese fans but at the same time a popular anime based on pure sports is hard to find.
The only well received sports anime are Ashita no joe, Slam dunk, Initial D, captain tsubasa and Inazuma Eleven (is that even sports?) and if you have watched these anime then you will realize that these not ONLY about sports but sports is just an aspect of them.
