If you’ve ever played sports or been on a team, you know what we’re talking about. Because of this, many manga artists have used sports as a source of ideas for their stories over the years. There are a lot of great sports comics series that will inspire you and push you to reach your goals, but we’ve picked out our 10 favorites:

She needs to train more and study more so she can play against players who are better than her. Karasuma is still young and not very experienced at playing this game professionally. Because of this, things don’t always go as planned for her in matches against other players. However, she doesn’t give up or get down when she loses games because she didn’t play well enough (and loses points) because of this. Instead, she uses these losses to push herself even harder.

The Gamilas are an insectoid species with a queen at the center. They can travel between stars using a space warp system called “Subspace” that lets them go faster than light without using warp drives or hyperspace technology, which humans discovered. This makes them very dangerous enemies because they can attack at any time and from anywhere with little notice. Since they are so strong in battle, humanity needs everyone to help if it wants to win this war.
