    Default Reading through the sports

    So just I archive binged on Saki (which isn't bad, though the increasingly frivolous fanservice is kinda annoying). And no, I know squat about mah jong, and frankly don't care to. But I realized this wasn't a problem because, well, the details of the play are more or less irrelevant to what I was reading for -- namely, what the plays meant to the characters, and how they interacted, and how their relationships developed. The sports aspect as, in other words, an expression of character development.

    Which is pretty much how I read most sports series. Heaven knows I sure don't read Adachi for the baseball, which I don't even like as a sport. I can't stand boxing, and I even finished Katsu! Give me a sports series that's entirely about the sport, with the characters that exist as positions the field, and I toss it aside. Powerups be damned -- I wanna see the work, and the teamwork, and the team.

    Anyone else do this?
    Today is always the most enjoyable day. Just ask Yotsuba.

    i held off on akagi and saki till i learned to play mahjong. but i don't know how to count points so most of it is still lost on me.

    i def agree that you can be immersed in a manga without fully understanding what is going on. it's also easy to read sports manga since most of them follow the same formula.

    Read football sport manga like whistle, which doesn't really contain all those awesome moves that's only exist in imagination. Football's probably the only sport the general public know much.
