>MC's team loses first match
>This guarantees them winning the rematch

Has there ever been a case when one still lost the rematch?
>>
>>137481295

Do you want them to lose the rematch too?

Do you just want to watch everything burn?

Chihayafuru has the opposite. They win the local highschool league the first time but got second the next time.

They still managed to win nationals after getting their shit together.

Any Chihaya has gotten BTFO every time she faces the queen. Nobody on their "side" (e.g., Harada) has beaten the meijin.

There's hardly any romance in it.

Maruo will never win a tournament even if his life depended on it.
>>
>>137481370

I think the romance and sexual tension adds a lot, you have a normalfag like Taichi getting good a obscure cardgame just to get his waifu to notice him.

I don't think it would have been as enjoyable without it.
>>
>>137481368
Had an anime and still isn't talked about. The manga is pretty good too.

Idea for sports anime:
Team loses.
Team loses again.
Some friends become enemies.
Some enemies become friends.
People quit the team.
Aces join the team.
The final re-match is set up.
Team loses again.
An old sage trains the team.
The final final re-match is set up.
Team gets completely crushed, but its animated all dramatic to make you believe they will win.
Roll credits.

Does MC's love interest ditch him for the other team's ace too?

Read Baby Steps then. There's an arc dedicated to the MC just losing over and over.

Sports anime should focus on the sport strictly.

No one who watches sports gives a fuck about the athletes personal life like romance shit, just want them to play and display their talent in the sport.

>>
>>137482183
Showing their personal life is what actually makes you give a shit about the characters. Who wants to watch something you don't have any emotional connection to?

Though I agree that homoshit has ruined too many sports anime.
>>
>>137482183

And there's hardly any focus on it in Chihayafuru, but believe it or not, wanting love/romance is a pretty natural thing, and as shown in Chihayafuru, it's a factor that influences motivation and behaviors.

No need to project your asexual herbivore lifestyle on everything else.

Those fucks just use it to make money but fans themselves don't really give a fuck as long as the players performance doesn't take a nosedive.

That football anime where MC's team lost around 3 times before even reaching the nationals. Forgot the anime. The MC has spiky orange hair.

In the manga Swan the MC loses to a Russian ballet prodigy, the finale of the series is their rematch and she still loses. A lot of the series focuses on the faults the MC has from being trained poorly; although she's experienced in dance her lack of proper technique is her handicap.

Characters need things like love and emo backstories in order for them to be motivated to win.

Good Motivation:

"My dad was in the national baseball team and lost the game because mom left him."

"My child hood friend and I made a promise that we would get married after I won the championship."

Shit Motivation:

"I just want to win for the team."

No fucking shit. We all want to win. But, what drives us to really win.

People saying they need a love interest to motivate themselves to win have never played sports at a higher level than gym class. Winning is the best feeling and doing it to better yourself or for your team is the best motivation. How does it feel to never have a team of Bros that you can celebrate with after winning a tough fought game.

Ballroom.
Technically not a rematch yet, but MC loses his first match badly.
It was obvious as fuck he would, way in over his head. It's always a trigger for character growth.
Then regresses and gets worse, to the point of having to start over from the beginning.
The rival he lost to got much better in that time, causing a bigger gap in skill.
Though he probably will win eventually (probably not the first rematch), the fact he didn't get better and was made out to be a failure, generally goes against the cliche you're describing.

The only thing I dislike about sports anime is that the MC's team never loses more than one or two on the bounce, It's a shame because you can learn a lot from getting destroyed but they just do as OP said.

this. you don't need any elaborate reason for wanting to win.
it's actually more relatable (and realistic) if the MC just wants to win because he wants to get better, stronger, faster etc.
