My perception about sports: As the time goes on, I could say that I’m not really expert on judging but I believe on my instinct that this list of anime is deserve to waste time for , I experience . At first I’m not really so into anime sports genre since I’m a type of person that to watch action anime and romantice chuchu anime but then when I started or I tried watching this anime where my friend recommend it , I think it took many months until I agreed to watch this anime sports since I find it “boring” in my past life. I don’t really understand why other people love to watch sports since it does’nt have romance , action or fantasy or something that could trigger it to you since it is sports , a game .. but everything change when I started watching it ..
First Anime Sports
The first anime sports that I’ve ever watch is HAIKYUU! where all characters are boys , and it is eye-catching because of the character design and to think is a volleyball sports where I’m afraid of to play coz’ it might hit my face (laugh) I suck at playing volleyball , I don’t know the rules in playing the volleyball game but when I started watching Haikyuu! I just realize that sports anime is somewhat could give explanation on how player plays , on what they are thinking of , how they handle the situation (though not all situation in anime applies on reality but some of them are on reality also) what I’m trying to say is that in Sports anime is awesome , it could give lot’s of emotion where you can put yourself on them ..
