Gaming and Sports Anime and Manga

Go To

An anime or manga in which, rather than fighting, the characters play a game or sport. Said game or sport will be Serious Business sometimes resulting in physically unwarranted pain, injury or death. Expect a lot of Mundane Made Awesome. Frequently leads to a Tournament Arc. Sometimes overlaps with Mons and To Be a Master.

Because the vast majority of characters are male, sports anime and manga have become synonymous with fangirl fodder along with otome games and Yaoi.
