    Default What sports manga would YOU like to see?

    So far, manga has covered baseball, basketball, soccer, tennis, boxing, judo American football, volleyball, golf, go, mahjong and even bread making (?!), among others. But there are still a lot of sports that HAVEN'T been manga'd yet. So what are the ones that'd YOU'D like to see done? And by that I mean you'd actually like to see them, not stuff you'd like to have made just because it's so stupid (like marbles).

    Personally, I'd like to see a manga done about western fencing. In Japan it's far overshadowed by kendo and usually only appears in anime being taught in upper-class private schools. But I think it'd make a great topic for a manga just because it IS so overlooked- there's a lot of depth to the sport as it's done both individually and as a team sport, while there are 3 different weapons to specialise in. (In case you hadn't guessed, I am in fact a fencer myself, specialising in the saber.) Plus it wouldn't be hard to draw exciting action scenes that pack a lot of real punch (unlike scenes in, say, Hikaru no Go- I'm not saying they DON'T pack punch, I'm just saying it couldn't have been easy).

    Times like this I wish I knew how to draw...

    I want to see a hockey manga. Like a mix between Eyeshield 21 and Air Gear. And throw in some Bo-Bo-Bo random violence. Like Mr. Fullswing but with better art and more focus on the plot...
