With the huge popularity of male sports shows, how come there is little to no female sports shows?
>>
Japanese otaku hate tomboys and little girls prefer magical girls.

weee

>>120499744
that's like saying chess is a sport
>>
>>120499756
as odd as it sounds, there are quite a few non-sport competition shows that really have more in common with sports anime than anything else
>>
Did Taishou Yakyuu Musume count as female sport show?
>>

Not only in anime and manga anon. The world cares very little about female sports. Maybe Tennis and Volleyball female department have more popularity, but in general, people don't give a fuck about woman playing stuff.

It's only natural that anime and manga would stay away from it.

girls don't want that gay shit.

U wot m8?

Wasn't there an anime about a gymnast girl or something?
Gymnastics is a sport, right?
>>
Sports SoL about a handball team where everyone is a qt tomboy when?

Is the target audience for a serious toned sports anime featuring mostly girl leads even big enough to warrant a show?
>>
>>120500516

It's not popular because of the sports, it's popular because of well-built guys.

You've never been around too long.

>>120499706
Because "female sports" is an oxymoron.
>>
>>120499706
The same reason why everyone goes apeshit over NBA but nobody watches WNBA.
>>
>>120499706
We had plenty of them in the past.
But now all-male cast is much more common because fujo will jump on it (with all the money and doujins and popularity it means) even when there is little or no pandering.

Also, one of these in the pic isn't full of superpowers bullshit like the rest.

Sports is too broad of a genre. The tag only says that a sport used as the basis. It doesn't say whether or not its the main focus or not.
>>120500054
Ping Pong by definition was a "sports" anime because it included ping pong but the sport played could've been anything if the storyline and characters were kept the same. I guess in that sense it wouldn't be a sports anime but a anime that happened to include the sport of table tennis.

That makes no sense. The same thing can be said for any sports anime.

What he meant was that the actual sport was not the focus of the story - the characters were.

I don't watch Motorcross either and this isn't even the best video to show how bad women are at it. They're overall slower, fall down way more and take less risks.

Basically the reason why nobody watches any female sports like soccer, basketball, hockey etc, you might as well watch the boy's junior league, theyre the same skill level

Off topic, but this is probably the most subdued sports anime I've seen.

But there are. They were pretty common back in the day. Just look at Softenni. But I guess they aren't that popular.

Because men should play sports.
Women should kill each other in little to no clothing.
