Sports Anime Shipping Olympics Sign-ups are open!

Spreading the news! I did SASO last summer and it was super fun and I met some great people! There are a ton of series to prompt and write for but you can still play if you're a fan of only one sports series *cough*YOI*cough*.

If you don't want to join a team, you can sign up for Grandstand and do all the prompts and fills in the bonus rounds. That's the best part, IMO.


The Sports Anime Shipping Olympics (SASO) is a summer-long prompt-based shipping challenge for sports anime and manga fandoms!

Fans form teams around their favorite ships and canons, and then compete in prompt-based challenges to show off just how awesome their ship/fandom is. Everything from fanfiction and fanart to games, recipes, graphic design, cosplay, videos, animation, coding/programming, and voice acting (and more!) are welcome. Sound like fun? >>> COME AND SIGN UP! <<<Other Links: Twitter || Dreamwidth || AO3 || E-mail

This looks like fun! I think I'll watch this year and then maybe join in on the fun next year. :)

Man, I'd love to throw in my hat for SouRin, but I don't know how any of this works and I'm afraid I'd fuck it up somehow.

Oh wow, that sounds like so much fun! I love a good prompt meme. Maybe I'll try the Grandstand and try for a ship team next year.

ETA: And I signed up! Looking forward to the bonus round. :D

And that's one year less in purgatory for me for writing underage porn.

Ooooh boy, I would not know those feels. *eyedart*

Yeah, besides YOI and Free!, I'm into Kuroko no Basuke right now. I'm on the third series right now and I love those dumb basketeens a lot. (Especially Kagami and Aomine.)

I also tried Haikyuu!! and thought it was super cute, but I couldn't handle how slow the games were (I say while KnB took 5(!!!) episodes on a forty minute game and I was riveted.) I'll probably come back to it when I have more time though. I also watched All Out!! on FFA's recommendation, but I'm shallow it didn't work for me.

I have no idea what sports anime to tackle next. I hope to get some recs from SASO. Thanks for the intro posts! I'll have to go and ... put myself forward.

I watched the first episode of that! It was pretty amusing, but I think I drifted off when the main protag started fatshaming one of the (tbf bullying) players at the school he was getting recruited to. I might get back to that and Haikyuu!! during my vacation time that's coming up.

Aw, I wonder if YOI is the small intersection in yours and my sports anime love. At least YOI exists though!

We should really make a list of hot anime sports coachs. I mean, Victor might be on top, though he's imho pretty terrible coach to Yuuri. But he sure is hot! I would nom the Touou coach from KnB although all he does is take advice from his players/club manager and play with his hair.

... But it's nice hair!

Man, Lilia is definitely on the list.

If it's any help, I really love Free! Enternal Summer, and only just like the first season. Sousuke, my fave, only showed up in ES and his rapport with Rin (and the fact that he was voiced by Hosoyan) made him and his entire story arc like catnip to me.
