Manga Giveaway: Cross Game Giveaway Winner

And the winner of the Cross Game Giveaway is…Lilian!

As the winner, Lilian will receive a copy of the first volume of the English edition of Cross Game by Mitsuru Adachi. As part of the Cross Game Giveaway, I wanted to learn about everyone’s favorite sports manga, a genre that I never expected to like but do anyway. I’ve compiled a list here of some sports and game manga that have been licensed in English, but be sure to check out the Cross Game Giveaway comments for entrant’s personal favorites. I’ve expanded the list to encompass games mostly as an excuse to include Hikaru No Go, which I love. I’ve also included a few titles like Hana-Kimi which may not be sports manga per se, but in which a sport is an important element.
