The two most popular sport anime/manga in the past five years, which is better: Kuroko or Haikyuu?
Haikyuu boys are cuter.
Haikyuu is better for the sport in both the anime and manga, but I still enjoy Kuroko. Season three has been a treat.
Extremely debatable. And neither of us have even posted more than one team.
You mean Free sells more BD/DVDs and is arguably more popular with female otaku. When you take wide appeal in consideration, then you can't beat a series that has the advantage of a shounen jump fanbase.
Actual about sport
>Actual about sport
Wait, we are actually watching these shows for the sports?
I'm almost positive it's the same few people spamming that shit every time.
Agree, completely opinions. It would be difficult to discuss because not only would that involve personalities and history, but we try to value cuteness and that would bring up the art styles which are unique to each series.
I would say that Haikyuu does have the upperhand on better match pacing. KnB is just as much about the sport, it's just not as well written as HQ, more drama heavy, too, and that would take away some time which may make it seem less I suppose.
P E D A L
For real though, I do like Yowapeda more than either of these. It hits the right balance between being Absolutely Crazy like Basuke and demonstrating actual knowledge about the sport like Haikyuu.
In addition, races have a very natural tension to them that makes the anime adaptation's turtle-y pacing actually pay off.
Hakogaku is full of best boys and best girls.
Manami is just so refreshing.
Furudate is the best boy god. There's no one else who's created so many best boys at once.
Indeed top tier high shelf moe best boy.
I know the anime pace drove a lot of people crazy, but I enjoyed it. I've said it many times now, but it was realistic, like you said, natural, and the tension sustained kept me on edge and constantly hyped for the next one.
I recently started Baby Steps. It's my new found motivational series. Damn nice surprise of a series since I went in without reading the manga.
Pic related. Just look at all these best boys.
Agreed on Yowapedal. It has the right balance of realistic sports with just enough anime insanity to make it fun. Plus the boys are much better as far as personalities, designs and fleshed out background stories go. Everyone who I've recommended Yowapedal to has enjoyed it, even normal fags.
Akira-kun is the kimoi-est.
I fucked up. Have some neko legs.
I can't believe no one has said this yet but Arakita is best boy. Believe in Bepsi.
Toudou, he is Hakone's official bike because everyone has had a ride on him.
He's also that token faggot with the fan club with girls following him everywhere but he only wants to suck Maki-chan's cock all day
You are right. If anything, Toudou's pure.
Haikyuu also wins in the christmas cake department.
Again, opinions, though he is very cute.
This fine ass oyaji guarantees an entire generation of delicious older basukes.
Why is Toudou so gay for Makishima?
Things have never been the same since I learnt that pedal meant homo in French.
There's a 20 minute clip floating around somewhere with just the added extra part. 80% of the movie is S1 Inter-high recap. Literally all it is is Toudou being full gay for Makishima with Onoda watching.
i dropped haikyuu at their first tournament i think, when the fucking women team kept reapeating "we didnt give our best, we lost, we couldve done more" etc for an entire episode.
I get that KnB and Haikyuu are popular with homos and fujos because the boys are cute and all, but how the hell is Yowamushi Pedal popular with horrifying characters like this?
And the others aren't much better either, the least ugly one is probably MC, but he is just a boring black haired megane, that looks like Shinpachi.
>how the hell is Yowamushi Pedal popular with horrifying characters like this?
The one thing I don't get is how Yowamushi manga is licensed but the more popular KnB and Haikyuu aren't.
Or how Haikyuu is getting US BDs but KnB didn't, despite KnB being bigger with western landwhales.
>Momoi will never win the Kuroko bowl.
Such a great girl stuck in this gay ass show.
All the Haikyuu are wonderful!
Haikyuu has a better girl in S2, designs now out
Just a thought, but I think the US didn't expect the popularity, but once KnB took off, perhaps someone smart decided to jump on HQ? Or maybe a deal couldn't be worked out. Who knows. It is disappointing, I would get the BDs if they were released.
She looks like Riko.
Not in colour, she's blonde
She's the 3rd year manager, other girl is the 1st year manager who joins around chapter 80 or so.
Kuroko is a lot more shounenish, Haikyuu is a lot more actual sport-ish. I like basketball better, therefore Kuroko is better, and that's the only answer you're going to get from asking a question like that here. Dumbfuck.
But does Haikyuu or pedal have chocolate sluts?
No, but Haikyuu has long Russian legs.
>Haikyuu has a better girl in S2
Surely you mean Bokuto right? Get hype for owls.
Are we ever getting a non-shit release of that OVA?
I know it was DVD only, so 480p is the best we could get (still better than 408p) but the encoding was garbage on that tumblr release.
>Hey there's some tan dude in this fujo manga and we need a voice actor. Any ideas?
>Yeah how about that guy who voiced that other tan dude fujo's like.
What are you implying? He's proud of his height.
Aomine is purest basugay.
I want to molest Lev.
>you will never get things off the high shelf for him
One thing I'll give Haikyuu is all that ass and thigh fan service.
