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.

because cannot be original with the plot anymore. You can literally change the 'sports category' in such anime but the plot will remain more or less, same and will give a rehash like vibes from older series.

>insert an mc
>interested in a particular sport/is already versed with the sport
>suffers crushing defeat/whacked by bullies
>new character comes in life to motivate him/gets saved by some random
>the said character is a veteran
>training begins
>takes part in some local competition
>wins, sets phenomenal record, gets recognized by pros from X school/club
>celebration time
>new enemy arrives
>gets his ass spanked in next match
>learning time- back to even harsher training mode. A new part-time sensei appears
>takes part in new competition and defeats the enemy above
>rinse and repeat
>Addendum- insert love triangle bhosda too for added masala with several monologues and freeze frames

By your mindset, every movie/anime/serial is unoriginal or rehash.

Basic plots duh

Not just anime but all critically acclaimed movies or tv shows treats sports as one of the aspect rather than the only focus see Rocky, Raging Bull etc can't fault anime alone on that.

Yes but it gets more obvious in sports genre.

There is basic plot and then there is formulaic plot which every fucking shonen is.
Not just shonen, most anime follows formulaic plot.

Simple. I watch anime for mindless escapism and cute girls(and boys, no homo) being cute. If I want something to ponder about I will just read a book or an article instead of watching anime written by 50 year olds larping as 15 year olds larping as philosophers as or if I want to see some gay fags running after a ball or something, I will just move onto ESPN or I will do it myself.

Not really. Rocky was boxing centric. And i agree that a show which only focuses on sports can be boring but we know that anime can pull off tournament centric themes.
