    Giant Killing is amazing. It's a soccer anime from the coach's perspective. But it gets professional soccer in a way I've rarely seen done so well.

    Love both, but I feel like haikyuu should get the nod for 1 over Kuroko bc of it's animation and the fact that it doesn't lean as much on dramaticized gameplay

    Simply put , i did'nt like volleyball that much …….then i watched Haikyuu , its AMAZING #1 !!!! as a basketball player i wish to see a basketball anime well made like Haikyuu , no super crazy movements, unrealistic shots ,so on . I literally went on youtube to watch volleyball matches and guess what its exactly the same,the spikes , the blocks ,the setting ,the movement… its crazy good :> Basically , Kuroko no Basket could be much much better ,in my opinion .
