Cried the entitled teenage girl on tumblr, without bothering to actually look to see if any already existed.
None of these are hentai or ecchi, and I doubt this is all there is. I also didn’t include ones that had overshadowing “idol singer” or “magical girl” elements.
Maybe next time, before you complain about not being able to find something, actually fucking LOOK for it.
[Making a separate post for this, because otherwise it’ll just get lost in the fray]
oh my god are you serious now. are you seriously calling someone “‘entitled”’ simply for asking to make more sports anime about girls?
The Japanese animation industry doesn’t owe you shit. They aren’t producing their shows for American teenage girls. They are producing shows for their own culture, and one in which sports in general is not as popular as it is in America.
i didn’t want to start shit, but the tone of this post is REALLY upsetting me. like are you kidding me?!? half of the titles listed here came out like 3458495 years ago. which doesn’t mean they’re bad or anything but we’re asking for new, fresh, modern sports anime, not for the few good anime that came out back in the days of attacker you!
Guys, apparently, nothing counts unless it’s brand new. If it happened before these people were born, they don’t give a shit, and it doesn’t have any social value. Fuck off with your spoiled little “It doesn’t matter unless it was made just for ME” attitude.
the other half of the anime listed here are either more romance-oriented than sports-oriented or they are ecchi moe trash clearly more aimed at men than girls (see Ro-Kyu-Bu, it’s literally listed as “Genres: Comedy, Ecchi, School, Sports”) OR they are about sports like mahjong and similar board games. Or skating, or wrestling or similar sports that aren’t really very much “team sports”, they’re very individual sports.
I literally stated in the post that none of these are ecchi. Way to prove that you didn’t actually read the post at all. And, oh no! ROMANCE! You mean like the implied romance in that male-dominated swimming anime that people like you fall all over yourselves about? You fucking hypocrite.
they’re making like 345954 new sports anime all about boys, you can’t ask people to just “be happy with what we already have” (read: a few old-ass anime, some moe trash and a few anime about mahjong, karuta and similar)
except for attacker you!! and very few others that came out many many years ago, i don’t see any other sports anime about girls that are like haikyuu!! or yowapeda or kurobas or all these new sports anime that are about team sports, have nice graphics/animation and all. literally the best sports anime about girls i can remember being like that is attacker you! and that’s it.
also don’t say “none of these are hentai or ecchi” if you didn’t even check the genres section of that anime’s page. don’t say there are no magical girls anime when there are actually some magical girls and fantasy anime there. don’t tell people to stop complaining about lack of representation just because you did a 5 minutes research on myanimelist and happened to find some old-ass anime labelled as “sports anime” that contains girls, and so you assumed people are just overreacting because “damn those sjws!” (yes, i did check your about page).
…I like how this person didn’t read anything about any of those animes, and are just making assumptions based on the images.
people know what they’re talking about when they complain about lack of representation.
And sports anime in general represent JAPANESE CULTURE. You know - the people those shows were MADE FOR.
also some info people should probably know about you before they reblog your shitty post:
TL;DR: stop reblogging this gross person’s posts
You continue to be as pathetic as ever (not to mention unintentionally racist). You go through someone’s FAQ to cherry-pick things in order to present them as negatives, without actually delving into what those posts contain, which include hard facts and statistics that show that “rape culture” is nothing more than mass hysteria. At least I provide sources for my claims - what do you have besides empty emotional pleas and logical fallacies? I continue to be astounded that people like you are literally angry that women AREN’T being raped as much as you think they are.
If anyone’s “gross” here, hon, it’s you (also, grow up. No one above age 8 should be using “gross” against other human beings. It’s childish as all hell).
Actually, what I find interesting in that reject’s post is they state there’s a shit ton of new sports anime all about boys coming out. Please tell me just what the names of these anime are. Please, do list all 345954 of these brand new shows coming out that are all sports oriented. I can wait. Oh, and well you’re at it, please do let me know which ones are aimed at a female audience and which are aimed at a male audience. I do seem to recall hearing about a swimming anime that was released not too long ago or something, but I just happen to forget what the target audience was and why. Mind refreshing me on that? Mind listing what sports anime even exist? Because that seems to be such a small area of anime, almost a niche genre of sorts given how many other genres that have a title released in them and how few sports anime there are.
