Not posting webms.
It's the movie mixing up fantasy soccer with kids toy robots fighting.
She did kick the ball.
She is a girl unfortunately.
He wasn't sedentary though, he ran around town beating up people for Hiruma, didn't he? Also got in a lot of fights and shit, plus he exercised when he played in actual games.
>There will never be a remake of the Eyshield 21 anime animated beautifully and with no filler
I HATE THIS LIFE
>too much oxygen can kill you
Inazuma is the one with the aliens right? I remember that it was more retard than PoT, so I didn't bother watching back then, I may pick this up now, because this fucking animation is a lot better than any of the current airing shit we have now.
In this universe Nadal vs Federer 2008 Wimbledon probably destroyed some galaxies
I fucking lost it when they jumped off to space.
God damn. My sides just went beyond the fabric of time and killed the dinosaurs
>This is why Haikyu is the best.
Haikyuu has pretty cool animation
Isn't that against the rules? I thought there were some kind of code for good sportsmanship behavior.
So how about that Baby Steps? I just read the latest raw chapter
and man, Ei-chan's getting smashed. I can't say I expected him to win this match, but still, considering how Nabae held up against Ike, I thought Ei-chan would be doing a little better here.
When you don't breathe properly and overexert yourself, yeah.
>mfw they went to space
TL Note: Schneizel just made an illegal move in chess, so it doesn't make sense that he could say checkmate, he might possibly say check but the use of the term here is wrong. The only way this could be a legal move is if this were blitz chess, also known as "Fast Chess". However, in this scene, it is never declared they are playing "Fast Chess", and neither of the players are using clocks to time their turns in the game.
TL Note 2: The reason why Schneizel did this is because the game was going to turn into a threefold rep. By pulling this illegal move, he is able to gain insight into Zero's personality, and "un-mask" part of him, thus fulfilling his victory condition in a subtle and Schneizel-ish manner. To look at the picture more properly, think of the chess board not as a game but as a battlefield. Zero's other options were to take his King, which would have made him similar to his father, or to call Schneizel out on making an illegal move, which would have made Zero look dumb since "lol rules of war". What Zero chose to do was keep his pride and run away from a free victory. Furthermore, by placing his King behind a pawn instead of any other open tile, Zero symbolically shows cowardice.
TL Note 3: Alternatively read like this: [aers | laptop] Well personally I think the symbolism in Schneizel moving his king is that he wants to be buddy-buddy with Zero. And that Zero moving behind the pawn is because he is afraid of Schneizel's advances. (Geass is about yaoi and shit, so the likelihood of aers being correct is somewhere over 9000.)
TL Note 4: This scene is interesting because it raises the question of whether or not Schneizel "plays dirty" in bed with Canon. :3
It's an anime for kids based on a videogame for kids, who cares.
Sports with overpowered powers and stupid shit like Prince of Tennis is garbage.
Good sport shows with friendship drama romance and comedy is where its at like Diamond no Ace, No superpower just talent and hard work.
The good sports anime rarely aren't that popular with the fujoshi as an added bonus. I mean, I know there's bound to be fujo art for Joe and Hanamichi out there, but I doubt Slam Dunk and Ashita no Joe are as popular with the fujo as trash like Prince of Tennis and Inazuma.
Was Captain Tsubasa as chunni and over the top as Inazuma? I've only seen some reruns in the 90's.
Slam Dunk is popular as fuck with fujos. AnJ is popular as fuck in general, but there's not much shipping material or homo subtext so naturally it's not a big fujo series.
Fujos love good series like Haikyuu, Daiya, Ookiku, etc as well as trash like PoT and KnB, but quality doesn't make a difference in their taste. It just depends on how viable it is for shipping.
I know, but that's owing more to its over all popularity. Sports anime are a staple of fujoshi due to the large cast of social, in shape men, and the lack of female competition/drama. They're like reverse harems, without the shit plot/writing. Unfortunately, this sometimes leads to the manga's down fall if the fujo audiences becomes too big (happens often with less popular titles).
I kid you not, I've seen fucking Slam Dunk dubbed in Arabic while waiting for my next flight in Dubai. It's really, REALLY popular.
Actually nevermind, the timeline doesn't match up. I'm probably thinking of a different series, or maybe Slam Dunk was what caused Comiket to take off. I can't find the original article I read.
The definitive best sports anime/manga:
Ashita no Joe
Hajime no Ippo
Diamond no Ace
Hikaru no Go
Kokou no Hito
I don't even know what your point is, fujos aren't a bad audience to have because they spend money like crazy. They also aren't as particular as otaku are when it comes to content, so the series can run in shounen magazines, and they like as many or more good series as they do bad ones.
Name a better sports MC than pic related.
Damn nigga bought the club he plays for, real shit.
This anime is scary sometimes.
Happy birthday to best legs boy
>This isn't the theme song
>this is swimming
It just won't work and look right being a full anime. I'd rather have the movie format.
The first movie is better, though.
>Not a single mention of Mitsuru Adachi
Y'all niggas need to watch some Cross Game and H2 and Touch, best mix of romance, slice of life, comedy and sports.
Has no one made a webm of Kagami's through the leg pass, spinning dunk from near the end of the anime
It's incredible and the animation is so fluid, it looks like an exaggerated streetball highlight animated
Yes, that's a girl.
A pretty cute girl.
Yeah, that happens every time I play soccer, too.
I jump to space, surrounded by flames, accompanied by dragons and penguins and two of my teammates. I then kick the ball so hard it arrives back at the stadium. I'm a pretty fast guy myself and of course I manage to match the speed of the ball.
So I start kicking it, with the combined force of the dragons and the penguins. The goalie sprouts a giant pair of hands (How's that shit allowed, is the referee blind?), but then I don't give a fuck, and the dragon sets fire to rockets that are on the penguins' backs. That delivers the power to break through the hands.
With all that force, the ball hits the goalie, and he shrugs it off like it was nothing. (What the fuck? The rocket powered penguins should've delivered more punch than that...)
>penguins are devastating creatures
I love that.
>no 720 dimension breaking dempsey roll. Thread dropped.
That's all pretty tame for GO. Stands, wearing their stands like armor from Saint Seiya, fusing with historical figures, espers, drawing out animal souls, soccer against real aliens this time.
I haven't clicked yet, but I'm guessing it consists of:
>preparing the fishing chair
>slowly picking the right bait
>throwing the fishing rod as strongly as possible while yelling [ruining any chance of catching a fish]
>waiting 5 minutes
>oh, I must've imagined it
>something catches again
>DEKAI OOKI FISH
>he struggles ot get it out of the water
>when he does, behind the fish there are thousands of water droplets and a rainbow
>he then fries the fish at the campfire near his tent
>Fat fuck Americans still calling football soccer in 2015
I've read too many Adachi til I forgot which character in which manga. The faces are same, I heard even Adachi forgot them.
By the way, anyone here reading Katsu! ? I think it's pretty underrated for Adachi's work. It's really good though.
Who the fuck likes this? On top of the character designs being horrible, mahjong ensures it will be completely incomprehensible to newbs.
>Old good sports series
>MC trains and gets better. His only mission is to become the best at his sport. Autors try to keep it as realistic as possible.
>Actual sports series
>MC is a gigantic faggot and the series is more focused on powerlevels and asspulls. Autors keep it unrealistic as possible
There will never be a better sport manga/anime than Slam Dunk.
Boxing is brutal.
>main character wins the hill climb portion of the race because he's too stupid to know its impossible
>it begins to rain
>main character worn out from hill climb and heavy from wet clothes
>finishes the race so late his time is officially voided
>main protagonist loses because his chain slipped a gear, due to negligent maintenance
Remind me if I'm wrong, but I don't remember there being anything ridiculously absurd about this show.
Isn't smacking the ball out like that goal tending?
>babying around the baseline
My experience with tennis extends strictly to Mario Tennis on the N64.
What does this mean?
>Character designs being awful
What's wrong, not POINTY enough for you?
They were playing football when image related arrived and ruined the game, then a bunch of robots appeared and were shooting the stadium, so they decided to destroy the scoreboard so that it would send electrical shock to all the robots there destroying them all at once.
>nobody posted best sports anime yet
For shame, /a/.
I yearn for the day that this will become a real sport.
>Faster than Jets
>Not moving so fast, he redlines. Once he is in the zone, he goes so fast, he scores before he even moved. The motions we see on screen are just the after-effects of time-travelling mechanics.
Step it up, senpai.
I think they meant to show he jumped really high that he floats.
Like Michael Jordan
Either way, Panther won the final match in the series who through training and natural black people genes easily bested Sena
I stopped reading when the brazilian girl kicked a world champion like he was a novice(and If I remember correctly, the kick lifted him for a moment), what a fucking joke of a manga.
This is why you watch Haikyuu and not Kuroko no shitball
Why the fuck are people even allowed to play tennis in this world? They're fucking WMDs
Who /sports/ here
It's soccer dumbass
OFFICIAL TOP 5 SPORTS
Diamond no Ace
Ashita no Joe
Baugay adaptation was fucking great.
Funny thing is that, unlike in the anime, in the games there ARE fouls. Sometimes it's really funny to see these over the top techniques blowing foes away only for the judge to call foul and stop everything.
The first time I saw it happening was with this attack - the striker, with the ball, kicks it to the chest of a nearby player, and then kicked the player through the ball.
Right after one of my defenders got knocked down by that the judge called foul. It was the first time I saw that, since this is an early technique from the beginning of the game, so it was surprising funny.
The one thing i didn't like about KnB was how they fucked with speed of characters. like Kagami would be mid jump about too dunk it. and someone who is outside of the 3 point line can start running, get there. and jump to contest it in the same time it takes Kagami or someone to move like 10 cm in the air
Oi oi oi faggot. Don't be talking shit about my Giantess Phycho fit girl manga
A lot of my favorite sports anime/manga don't use super powers at all. In fact, most of the sports out there and almost all of the ones I watch don't have super powers.
I love the exaggerated reactions
People who think sports shounen is all powerlevels and magic powers have literally only seen Kurobas and probably heard about PoT. It's really not that common compared to more realistic stuff.
The dinosaur imagery is from the same movie where they were literally playing underwater after being hit by a tidal wave and then jumped into tornadoes.
New PoT is still worse.
