Time for another sports themed Watch-along! Last time around we watched Chihayafuru, which I was skeptical about before watching, but turned out to be a fun watch-along. What sports anime will it be this time? We're open for suggestions.

As always:
One suggestion per member
Keep legal streaming in mind
Feel free to pitch you suggestion with a key graphic.
And have fun, everybody!

I am throwing my hat into the watch along again.
I am a total sucker for sports and it sure is a dangerous one.

My nomination is for Shin Ace wo Nerae! (New Aim for the Ace) 25 episodes.
It is a tennis anime that premiered in the fall of 1978. It is a sequel to the original Aim for the Ace in which we will now see the main character Hiromi go through high school.
I quite enjoyed the first season when I first started my quest and believe the first season isn't needed to understand this sequel. All you need to truly know previously is Hiromi learns to love tennis from a tough coach and has a girl crush on her rival nicknamed Madame Butterfly.
