So Tokyo just got the 2020 Olympics (so start saving your money now) anime inspired opening ceremonies? (Expect not but boy wouldn't that be funny!) and Tom you should talk about wrestling not being in the Olympics and the changes it had to make to come back...

It probably won't get any more or less than it currently gets, which is a handful of titles each year.

Would have to agree with Sickvisionz. In many instances, sports anime have a niche following in Japan and are much less popular here in the states. It's why you don't see very many titles for them air each year.

I much as I would love to see more anime like Kuroko's Basketball, Free! and Eyeshield 21 I don't see it increasing much.

I agree with the lot of you. I bet that there won't be much changes at all for the Sports theme in anime in result of this. However, I'm happy for Japan winning the 2020 slot for the Olympics.
