So a lot of sports manga tends to not be popular. To be honest I am not all that much of a fan of sports manga mainly because they take a lot away from the actual game they represent with all of a sudden someone having super power that makes them amazing, or they hit an asteroid ball or something that is ludicrous.

But then again, part of that is fun and adds to the levity of the sports manga. I haven't seen many good sports manga, or for that matter very few sports manga. But the 2 that i have seen I have both enjoyed immensely. One is Eyeshield 21 which is now completed, unfortunately. It is about American Football, and since i am a little bit of a fanatic of football I enjoyed seeing it how japanese view football. The other is Hajime No Ippo which is about boxing and over 900 chapters.

These are really the only two sports mangas that i have come across that were worthwhile reading. If anyone has any others that they know of, please post them. Or if you just like sports manga, post in here.

I don't like sports mangas, but the following are pretty popular:

Slam Dunk - I may not like sports mangas, but this is in the top 50 best selling manga of all time list

Slam Dunk centers around Hanamichi Sakuragi, who starts as a delinquent outcast, becoming the leader of a gang. Hanamichi, being very unpopular with girls, has been rejected by them fifty times. Yet, he finds out that Haruko Akagi is the girl of his dreams, and is happy when she's not scared of him like all the other girls he has asked out.

Haruko Akagi, who recognizes Hanamichi's athleticism, introduces him to the Shohoku basketball team. Hanamichi was reluctant to join the team at first because he had no previous background in any sports and thought that basketball was a game for losers (also because the fiftieth girl rejected him for a basketball player). Sakuragi, despite his immaturity and hot temper, proves to be a natural athlete with potential and joins the team in order to impress Haruko and prove that he is worthy of her. Kaede Rukawa — Sakuragi's bitter rival (both on the basketball court and love, even when Rukawa doesn't acknowledge Haruko's crush on him), the star rookie and a "girl magnet" - joins the team at the same time. Hisashi Mitsui, an ex-junior high school MVP, and Ryota Miyagi, a short but fast player, both also rejoin the team and together these four struggle to complete team captain Takenori Akagi's dream of making Shohoku the national champion. Together, these misfits gain publicity and the once little known Shohoku basketball team becomes an all-star contender in Japan.

Kuroko no Basuke/Kuroko no Basket - This series is currently running on Weekly Shonen Jump

Once upon a time, the basketball team of Teikou Middle School rose to distinction by demolishing all competition. The regulars of this team became known as the "Generation of Miracles". After graduating from middle school, these five stars went to different high schools with top basketball teams. However, a fact few know is that there was another player of the "Generation of Miracles", the phantom sixth player. This mysterious player is now a freshman at Seirin High, a new school with a powerful, if little-known, team. Now, Kuroko, the sixth member of the "Generation of Miracles", and Kagami, a naturally talented player who spent most of middle school in America, are aiming to bring Seirin to the top of Japan, taking on Kuroko's old teammates one by one.

Fight no Akatsuki. It has an awesome story line, funny/awesome characters, and if you play basketball (like me) you can tell that they have actually thought up some really good strategories. Its interesting to their improvements and transformations as the manga goes. (:

I really liked Whistle! (soccer) and Hikaru no Go as well, although like mentioned, not sure if Go can be considered a sport...

Two I am currently reading is Baby Steps (tennis) and Fantasista (soccer)--both of which are really fantastic! Both don't really have that "superpower" and that unreal elementl, at least compared to a lot of other sports manga.

Capeta (racing) is great as well, I have only seen the anime though and haven't had the pleasure of reading the manga, since it actually isn't translated fully in English. Same author - Dance Subaru is really great as well. Obviously it's about dance, Ballet in particular.

All of these are really great.

As you can tell I am a big sports manga fan... haha

I wish they expand Whistle, I feel that it's too short sometimes.. but he ending is goid though. As for Hikaru No Go, the ending, just that last page, really annoys me. But the whole story is great^^
