      "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."

      "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!"
