Fictional Silly Sports: I have to call out Umamusume: Pretty Derby for being so ridiculous it swung back around again to charming. Real Sports, Done Absurdly: I guess I need to shout out for Eyeshield 21, as real American football could never be half as zany. Kuroko's Basketball gets an honorable mention for having a silly premise for the main character's skill (he's able to be literally invisible because he "lacks presence"). Hmm. I suppose I prefer my sports anime to be generally serious rather than silly! It means fewer shounen-trope-reliant anime and more seinen & josei.
