Is he the best sports anime protagonist there ever was?

Hell no.

He is every shounen protagonist. He is literally Naruto.

Is Kageyama Sasukle?
>>
Haikyuu is too happy go lucky for me.

Is this your first anime? Jesus christ. There are dozens that are better than this fag.

It is an anime about fucking volleyball, what do you want them to be in gangs while they aren't practicing and getting caught up with girl trouble?

Foh.

Fuck off OP. Watch more anime.

>>135941185
This or Adachi Michiru's Cross Game

>>135941335
How about you shut the fuck up, out of all sports anime this is like the most happy sappy shit out of them.
>>
Haykyuu is pure healing and fun. I love it!
>>
Are you for real OP?
>>
No, but I don't mind his character, but I'd probably stop watching sports shows if everyone acted like him, he's ok in small doses.

I still like Kuroko and Kagami more than Hinata and Kageyama.
>>
>>135940492
Certainly the cutest sports anime protagonist, that's for sure.
>>
>>135940492
He's to happy and optimistic.
Where's the drama?
>>
>>135941711
This.

Even if kuroko is bs kuroko/kagami were much better protags.

Pic related the realist niggas in Haikyuu though.
>>
>>135941864
>Where's the drama?
at the toilets of every tournament.
>>
What other sports anime have this mix with SoL/training and actual matches where the opposite team arent just some nonames? I really enjoy Haikyuu but i rarely watch sports anime but i have seen Oofuri with i liked a lot but it got kind of a different vibe to it.
I avoided Kuroko so far because of heavy fujoshiload i guess. Is it good? And hows Eyeshield?
>>
>>135942004
>I avoided Kuroko so far because of heavy fujoshiload i guess

How can you say this when it's much worse in Haikyuu?
>>
>>135941864
I genuinely think he might get a serious concussion or broken ankle one day. His drama will be he's not allowed to play for awhile.
>>
>>135942004
Kuroko's pretty hype. Not as gay as it looks.
>>
>>135941869
The only good thing about them is getting to see them get BTFO this season.

>>135942070
I haven't seen people with bags where they plastered self-printed stuff from naked haikyuu boys on around here. So i assumed Kuroko was worse.

>>135942080
Guess i'll check it out then, thanks.
>>
>>135942080

Problem with Kuroko is the super power DBZ shit that happens in game that makes you roll your eyes at this shit.

Haikyuu is good because it is realistic. The MC isn't a god but just a kid with good jumping power and eyes, that is it. No one on the team is spectacular and they do lose enough to want you to make them win. Opposing teams have interesting enough characters to see them in action as opposed to Kuroko where the generation of miracles are the main fucking show the entire time through.
>>
>>135941711
I ended up liking Kuroko a lot more than I thought I would. He was more like the silent flame, the middle ground between hetare faggot and typical hotheaded shounen protagonist. The only thing I hate is the random powerups and asspulls from him, but that's more because the mangaka fucking sucks.
>>
>>135942004
Kuroko isn't as fujo as most people say.
It's watchable if you like turning your brain off and enjoying the action.
The main "antagonists" are good.

I would recommend Hajime no Ippo.
It has god tier comedy and hype as fuck fights.
The whole show goes like this:
>learn about new opponent
>train
>fight
>repeat

Simple but good.

+ it the rivalry between Ippo and Sendo is the best thing ever
>>
Haikyuu sucks ass when they're not playing matches that matter.

At least it's not Prince of Tennis.
>>
>>135942348

That is pretty much every sports anime in existence when they aren't playing the sport.
>>
>>135942348
Haikyuu is the kiddie table of sports anime.

>>135942422

By all means Capernicus tell us what is considered to be for the big boys.

Hinata is moderately generic.
>>
>>135940492
>tumblr gif

Also Hinata is generic shonen MC 101.
>>
>>135942004
Kuroko isn't shit because of fujopandering, it's shit because the writing is naruto tier. The whole thing is powerups and magic beams.

>>135942004
Eyeshield is the fucking shit. The rules differ a bit from NFL rules and maybe high school(can't remember about hs because it's been a while since I graduated). It's also entertaining watching the mc grow from a errand boy faggot into a total football badass. They do kind of over exaggerate moves. Great all around cast.
>>
>>135942004
>Kuroko is Fujoshit
>Haikyuu is not

What? Haikyuu's fanbase is entirely made of fujoshi.

At least kids liked Kuroko because of superpowers.
>>
>>135942275
>>135942685
I guess i'll still check it out. If it's too much i can always drop it. Thanks for your answers.

Also Ippo sounds good, i wonder how i not thought of it. Guess i looked for group-based sports.

>>135942725
Well i know HQ has a lot fujos but the show itself isnt as fujo as some may think.
>>
>>135942725
This, the readership for Haikyuu was something like 70% female and 30% male. Kuroko was 50/50.
>>
>>135942560
Haikyuu is a kids manga, that's why it's so lighthearted and childish. It's not supposed to be for big boys.
>>
he is an annoying little shit.
>>
>>135942685
People keep saying this but except for a few scenes that's not true.
It's not power ups an magic beams. It pretends to be about strategy. But it's pretty retarded because it's presented in a "If X does Y, Z won't be able to score." way and falls flat because that's not how it works.
Shit explanation but whatever.

Try the anime Baby Steps if you're into hetshit.
>>
>>135940492
>doesn't cry after every loss
>doesn't wallow in self pity
He cried and whined like a brat after their loss.
>>
>>135943010
I just don't want any romanceshit in my sports anime but sports related drama and comedy and action. So if Baby Steps has some Hetromance in it, i'm probably out.
>>
Plus when he tries to bully the opponent with his edgy looking.
>>
>>135942790
As long as you don't care about fanart and doujinshi then the fandom shouldn't matter.

Eyeshield is GOAT.I loved both the manga and the anime but the manga is better so go for it.

Anime has great opening and endings so if you're into that don't miss it.

Their loss in S1 was the first major one for them, especially after overcoming so many obstacles regarding other teams and their own teamwork. But they then resolve to be better than their best, etc etc. They're all sad but none of them, much less Hinata and Kageyama, allow it to hold them back

They usually bully him first

This happens in pretty much every decent sports series ever, I love Haikyuu but it's hardly unique in this regard
>>
I only like it when he goes autist mode

He is just a typical MC beside that

Would put it more in the category like ping pong not really about the sport

I don't know how to feel about this.

Eyeshield is fantastic, as other anons have said. Read the manga, the anime doesn't cover everything.

>>135942952
>all I have to do is teleport behind the guy blocking me and we can score

I spent two seasons watching it waiting for it to get good and it never happened. Kuroko is one of the most overrated shows I've seen.

I wish he spent less time being background radiation in this show. The only concentration we ever see on him is when someone is menacing that silly bitch.

His struggle is real. He has to make the same effort as the rest of the team but without getting any recognition. He's giving his best from the backseat, and I know that one day, he'll have his hero time.

And damn he's so fucking cute.

Talking about Haikyuu, while I won't cast my vote on any of them I must admit I'm impressed by Kageyama because of how he turned his character type on it's head. Same goes for their entire team dynamic where the older ones actually do something. But as best sports protagonist? No.
