As a fan of hentai, I picked cheerleading. For non-hentai, Matial Arts.

My opinion on sports manga is that the sport doesn't matter. Chances are it's going to get turned into some crazy superhuman Dragonball thing like Prince of Tennis anyway, since recording an actual bout of most sports in comic book form would be painfully boring.

So no vote on this one from me. What makes a sport series really interesting is everything else that isn't the sport. The characters, the drama, etc.

There's a couple. Accel World is one, and you could take into account SAO and 1/2 Prince.

I don't really like sports manga but I chose Cheerleading because I think all the hot chicks would make me less inclined to drop it. I know I'm a pervert.... cry

Well, I suppose I can deal with any sports. I mean, I didn't think I'd be a fan of wheelchair basketball, but Takehiko Inoue managed to prove me wrong. At the end of the day, it's more about the story and characters than the sport itself.

For the sake of the poll, I chose motor racing since I'm a fan of MotoGP. Or used to be anyway.

I always wanted manga about Tetris in a vein of Eyeshield 21 or Hikaru no Go.

I find it mildly disturbing that neither Shoji nor Mahjong are on the list. sad Though Martial arts would still get my pick.
