    "Captain Tsubasa is not the best or one of the first sports anime I would think of. Some recommendations are: Haikyuu, Ping Pong The Animation, Hajime no Ippo, and Kuroko no Basuke."

    "While I appreciate that this is sports anime I don't like that it's not very versatile. I don't like how it only concentrates on soccer, I'd like to see more sports portrayed."

    "If you are interested in sports related anime this is a great series. The blu ray had a couple of small issues but nothing that made it unwatchable. If you are on the fence grab this show you'll really enjoy it."

    "Personally I'm a fan of this anime, so buying this is a no brainer for me. It was definitely worth the buy, just to have the episodes at arms reach for whenever I wanted to binge watch or heck, show them to friends and get them into it too."

However, the sports-related gaming market is significant, and growing rapidly. Air Gear is but one product in this market segment, albeit in the more limited anime genre. More information pertaining to the attributes and specific features of the game are needed to support this product as the best possible product solution."

    "This doesn't necessarily fit into what I was looking for. While Air Gear is a pretty interesting game, it follows the story line of Ikki trying to become a Storm Rider in this 'racing' game. There are better options for Anime Sports, though!"

    "This is one of the best anime series I've seen. The storyline is so fresh and original and the animation is really solid. The english dub is terrible, but that's the case for a lot of these sorts of things. If you like skating and anime, you should check this out!"

    "I had heard about Haikyuu!! from a friend whose tastes generally align with my own, so I felt pretty comfortable taking a chance on this purchase. It turns out I was totally glad I did - what a fun series! As a former high school volleyball player myself, I found that I could easily identify with the characters and put myself in their situations. Moreover, I enjoyed the quality of the picture and sound, the accuracy of the English subtitles, and the replay value that this series provides. If you're looking for an entertaining sports anime, this is one to get!"
