    Aoki Densetsu Shoot! - Are you sure there is a manga for this one? I tried searching a bit and it was all anime O.o
    Captain Tsubasa - Anip has it.
    Dear Boys Act2 - I saw this a long time ago in some on-line reading site. With dedication, I'm sure you'll find it
    REAL - Mangatraders hosts all 26 scanned chaps (you need to register first)
    Whistle! - Can be readily found at MangaSpot.

    If I might comment, I do not think you are yet up for the drama of REAL since most of the sports manga you seem interested in are quite 'light hearted'. REAL does have wheelchair basketball in it but the story focuses more on the lives and pains undergone by the 3 main characters. So though it's a beautiful series (and among my favorites), I'm quite positive it's not the genre you're currently looking for.

    Anyways, if you want to read a shoujo series about volleyball, I suggest reading Beniiro Hero (Crimson Hero) by the same mangaka of Akuma de Sourou (The Devil Does Exist). For a highly engaging board game series, you won't go wrong with Hikaru no Go (don't give up on the first volume!). Finally, the old school drawings of Mitsuru Adachi may not be up for everyone's standards but the fusion of subtle humor, romance, and sports are usually enough to make anyone a fan. He's got a series about boxing (Katsu!), tons of series about baseball (H2, Touch, Nine, etc.), and an odd ball for . . . swimming (Rough)! Rough is my favorite out of all his works so read that one first 'kay? (BTW, I got hooked by the second volume so stick around 'til then)

    PS: Manga about food (aka cooking/baking) are quite sporty too since there are usually contests to compete in. The only catch is that most are filled with fanservice *sigh*

    PPS: Somebody do help me please find the title of the manga I posted on another thread here at Download Requests.

    PPPS: Err, I don't think Vagabond is a sports manga O.o

    1- Im 100% sure there is Aoki Densetsu Shoot! manga because i know someone who is downloading the chinese verison of it right now.
    2- I cant find scans after Vol2 or 3 for Dear Boys ActII
    3- you might be right i might not like Real, but anything that is related to BASKETBALL i wanna read. I enjoy playing the sport and wouldnt mind reading what difficulties other endure/gone through just to play the sport. Is this Manga still going or is it complete?
    4- I forgot about Hikaru No Go, I actually have the whole manga series and the anime. I finished it almost a year ago, the ending of the manga really pissed me off cuz of a lack of ending -_-;;.
    5- Yea i noticed there are alot of series/mangas about baseball, but its not a sport i think i would like to go into. Its really boring watching a game IRL, not something i would like personally.
    6- I actually never read a manga about food, but i have seen animes(Yakatie japan and Cooking master Boy)
    7- Vagabond isnt a sports manga but i heard alot and i mean alot of promising remarks on it, so i wanna read it =).
    8- THANK YOU FOR THE LINKS, imma go check em all out now =), And ill go to the other thread to see if i know the manga. But i dont read often enough prolly to identify it xD, but we shall see =).

    It pissed me of the first time too. Try rereading it again since the ending really worked for me the second time aroud.

    Most of Mitsuru Adachi's manga is indeed about baseball but Rough is about swimming Give the first 2 volumes a try. It's a nice series once you get used to the style.

    Takehiko Inoue's a very talented and versatile mangaka. I'm waiting for this to finish.

    Please do help me with my search. It's the last post in the thread Request: Need help getting the name

    BTW, REAL isn't finished yet (both in Japan and in the scans) but Omanga seems to have gone on a hiatus O.o
