Hey there @Ohiotaku, you are into Baseball?
Are you watching Diamond no Ace by any chance? (third season is airing right now - you might have heard of it) Been binge-watching for the past weeks, couldn't think I would enjoy it this much despite of the lack understanding of the game "strikes, ball, out, safe and so many other terminologies like curve ball, change-up etc", baseball sure is quite versatile.
Also baseball is popular in japan and this was the biggest surprise of all

Afraid I haven’t watched any soccer or basketball anime and up to a couple years ago sports anime wasn’t really a genre I spent much time on. Ones I’ve watched recently that I haven’t already mentioned
Hinomaru Sumo (highschool team sumo competition) Full of your typical shonen stereotypes including the underdog MC. But actually spends some time on the sort of training and tactics that go into it as well as the cultural significance of the sport. I think a lot of people avoided it for the “Do you like gladiator movies?” stigma
Megalobox (cybernetically enhanced boxing)
Harukana Receive (girls in bikinis ... I mean beach volleyball :P)
Hanebado - who knew badminton could be this intense?
though the teen melodrama/angst was a bit too overdone for my taste
Hinomaru Sumo might be the only one I would give a try. I wasn't giving it any chance at first and this just by looking at the cover photo, guess my 3 episode rule will come in handy. Or should i give it more episodes?
I tend to avoid any anime with too much fan service, unless that anime with girls in bikinis..i mean beach volleyball has a decent plot. Hanebado looks dope from the gif perspective, gotta look into it later on.
I haven’t wanted to start a diamond no ace because I’d be pretty far behind, and I still want to rewatch Big windup. You seen that one? @Muco and you don’t like Haikyuus art?
