Gaming and Sports Anime and Manga
aka: Sports Anime

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.


Not to be confused with RPG Anime.


Alternative Title(s): Gaming Anime, Sports Anime
