Notice, March 2024 –  Taking a Time Out

Dear Reader!
Unfortunately, my current time budget doesn’t allow me to read (and analyze) manga and manhwa or to watch anime. Sadly, this also means that I won’t be able to share any deep dives into the content of exciting sports series with you in the upcoming couple of months. As soon as the murky clouds of time constraints disappear and my schedule clears up, I will continue searching for interesting stories to share with you!
Until then, why not check out a post you haven’t read yet?

On this blog I’m taking a monthly deep dive into the exciting world of the sports anime, manga, and manhwa. 

Training sessions that leave you breathless. Passionate athletes whose cheers and tears you share. A thrilling competition with an unpredictable outcome that has you sitting on the edge of your seat! The hard-core athlete, the sports romanticist, and the evil sports villain; all have their place in this unique genre.

There is an abundance of sports manga in Japanese. Sadly, only a fraction of those is graced with an English translation. This is such a pity! To introduce some of these awesome stories to you, I also talk about manga that haven’t made it onto the English-speaking market (…yet).


I don’t write spoiler-free reviews because, unfortunately, it’s impossible to take a closer look at a story without revealing parts of it. 

About Me

I’m a student of Japanese Studies. So, besides being busy with studying, I work at my regular job, prepare stuff for this blog, and work out. My greatest ‘distraction’ and joy are my two cats, Mr. Kayden and Mr. Pumpkin, whom I love dearly. They are also the best workout buddies ever.
