Okay so we’ve got all of these (
unquestionably gay) sports anime these days. Like:
Kuroko no Basket
and of course, Haikyuu!
But does anyone remember the sports anime that was THE sports anime?
You know those precious little dorks that played either solo
or in pairs
but were all a part of the same team
And that even had it’s own live action series
Yeah it’s a bit older than the rest (like 1999 early 2000)
But it’s impossible to deny how attractive
And all around perfect this anime was
So let’s all give it up for and never forget this all important, bad ass, tennis sports anime that’s a senpai too all of those present mainstream sports anime:
PRINCE OF TENNIS
To anyone that forgot or somehow hadn’t heard of PoT before this post, I only have one thing to say to you.
Mada mada dane.
My guardian angel probably facepalms himself a lot.
