List of the best sports anime, voted on by Ranker's anime community. The anime sports genre boasts a huge array of amazing shows, covering just about every sport you can think of (Ping Pong: The Animation can verify this.) Must-watch sports anime includes Eyeshield 21, Prince of Tennis and Slam Dunk, but there are so many other great shows that are less known but just as good. This poll includes video clips of each show, so you can watch each sports anime right here on this page. If your favorite anime about sports is missing, add it to the list so that others can vote for it too!
 
The shows that are listed may have different sub-genres, but they're all about sports in one way or another. What is the greatest sport anime of all time? Scroll down and help us decide once and for all.
