The shonen version of sports anime feels like a fighting anime but without the chance of dying. Haha

I don't keep up with them much, but off the top of my head I thought one outs was fantastic.
>> No. 27531 [Edit]
I don't really see the appeal. It's a kind of vicarious experience I don't want to engage on, so I end up finding it boring, even with racing ones (where racing is a main appeal instead of secondary, e.g. Mach GoGoGo [Speed Racer] vs. Freedom).

From the conventional mainstream sports the only one I find somewhat entertaining is hockey (I watch every now and then if I'm bored)... and more because I have an undying love for cold, ice, winter, etc.
>> No. 27533 [Edit]
Air hockey anime when?
You know you want to.
'Conventional' sports anime are dull because they're scripted. They are much more fun when they're silly like Saki or Keijo.
>> No. 27550 [Edit]
I believe both Saki and Keijo are scripted, actually.

If you liked that, check out Shokugeki no SOMA.

I've liked every Mitsuru Adachi adaptation I've seen. They don't go beyond simple drama but simple drama done well is really nice. Ping pong the animation was also good for a short story.

I decided to give this a go per a buddy's recommendation. I was hesitant because I was really put off by biKe-ON, but this is actually pretty decent so far.

It was pretty good especially for an original series. The staff worked really hard on it and I'm glad Yamamoto finally had a hit. Shame a lot of people won't watch it because of the "Yaoi" but they're missing out.

I want more anime like Yuri on Ice. I'm tired of high school sports anime because it's just starting from square one and the same story even if characters are different. Which sure it's mostly about characters and how much you enjoy the but in anime in general I find myself bored of high school drama unless its really well written. Ping Pong the Animation was in high school but had the same set up as Yuri on Ice. It's about professionals, not kids going to high school and playing for something that doesn't matter too much. The characters start when they're already amazing. Yuuri is the top skater in Japan from the start even if he chokes, he was the best of the best.

So the main character in Long Riders apparently has little to no experience with bikes and has horrible balance problems causing her to fall over a lot. Yet her friend who's an experienced cyclist thinks eating properly before going on a ride is more important than wearing a helmet, which she doesn't get till the second ep.

Watching something with Yuri in the tittle and getting Yaoi? Yeah I can't see why people would have a problem with that.

The quality of long ridders really took a dive in ep4 while at the same time pushing bikes to the background and focusing on the characters in cute outfits. I wonder if those two things are related...

It's a bit weird watching a slice of life sort of anime with all the characters being grown up college students who have jobs and can drive and stuff, but not weird in a bad way.

...and there goes their hymen.
>> No. 28660 [Edit]
Is there really any reason to be using "they" when that's clearly a girl? I've noticed it pretty often here.

Is there something wrong with using non-gender specific pronouns for non-living, fictional objects?

Or are you one of those people who refer to objects they own, such as a vehicle, as 'she' and complain when others refer to the vehicle as 'it'?
>> No. 28673 [Edit]
Comparing a machine to a fictional female is a pretty terrible analogy to say the least. Why would you even comment on her hymen if you hadn't assumed her to be a female?

Nobody is impressed by meaningless semantics and pseudo-philosophies. I personally don't care if you use gender-neutral pronouns and I'm not the person that brought it up originally, but don't be a cunt.
>> No. 28675 [Edit]
See, I assumed you just weren't familiar with English. But now I know you're a pseudo-intellectual douche desperate for attention.

I'm >>28654, but not >>28672. They're (he is) someone else.
I was under the impression both "her" or "they/them/their" were acceptable in these sort of situations. I wasn't aware that "him & her" was required once gender was established. Sorry if I was incorrect and for any trouble I might have caused. English is essentially my third language.
>> No. 28677 [Edit]
no, he/her is not always needed, they is always fine. some people are just anal about that. your english seems fine
>> No. 28678 [Edit]
Ah, I'm sorry I assumed you were an attention whore. I think it's technically correct to say "they" if you want, but it looks really awkward, at least to me. You do you, dude.
>> No. 30637 [Edit]
I like Hill CLimb Girl...
>> No. 30641 [Edit]
Since this got bumped recently and as such I'll feel less guilty about necroing it just to ask a question...

Has anybody seen both Long Riders and Minami Kamakura High? Obviously the premise is extremely similar, with 5 girls forming a bicycle club and whatnot. What would you say differentiates the two? Which one do you consider better?

I'm probably only ever going to watch one so I was hoping for some opinions.
>> No. 30673 [Edit]
Any reason why you can't watch both?!?
>> No. 30675 [Edit]
I've seen long riders but not Minami Kamakura High. The latter looks like it might be better quality if nothing else, maybe I'll give it a shot and report back. long riders was very QUALITY I should say. Some of the caps posted here should make that much obvious. Not particular memorable but if you have any interest in biking it's worth checking out.
>> No. 30740 [Edit]
I've seen both. Neither of them is particularly good or memorable, but they're both cute.
>> No. 30758 [Edit]
Possibly same as yours.

>if you have any interest in biking it's worth checking out.
Truth to be told I don't have that much of an interest in biking. But hey, it's one theme I haven't gone through with cute girls doing cute things shows so I might as well give it a go. One go preferably.

Care to say anything more? I mean obviously they're very similar but they're not the exact same show. What would you say differentiates them?
>> No. 31073 [Edit]
Ice-skating needs more anime
>> No. 31339 [Edit]
How about a FREE bishonen swimming club?
