Does Sports Anime Make You Want to Play Sports?
By ImJustThatKinky • 4 weeks ago

I work on a doujins website, which is also an at home job, so you can already kind of guess how active I am. I did get RIng Fit Adventures for Christmas, so that’s a start. But I remember when I was in high school, I always wanted to join a club. And being the weaboo that I am, I wanted to join an anime club, but that was until I watched an anime called Haikyuu!!.

After watching Haikyuu!!, I still wanted to join an anime club, but now I was also interested in joining a sports club. People always said that I could play basketball since I’m pretty tall and skinny (and black). But basketball never really interested me, and the people I saw who played sports never looked like a real team, more like people blaming other people for being shit or losing for the team. But Haikyuu!! showed me a different side of sports. The good side of sports.

These are friendship goals.

I might didn’t care about basketball, but I sure as hell didn’t care about volleyball either, until I watched Haikyuu!!. Haikyuu!! made playing sports and volleyball look cool, fun, exciting, and enjoyable. Even though people still buttedheads on the team, they learned from it and grew stronger as a team. It made me look at sports as if I could also have fun and do all those cool stuff...but I still never joined a sports team :P. I do think sports are cooler than I did before, but I lost my chance to ever join a sports team.

Do you watch sports anime? Did a sports anime ever make you join a sports team? Has sports anime made you appreciate sports more? Tell us in the comments.
