Manga > anime. It's 358 chapters though.
Anyways! Air Gear is one of those typical sports, but on a larger scale. From defending territories to betting your life on the battle to conquering the world - you name it. Filled with action pack on every turn of the page, to meaningless (but sense-making) information filling the screen. From ecchi shots once in a while to devastating and glorious scenes. It has everything! ...Well, not everything. Also, it has that somewhat vibe of Katekyo Hitman Reborn, albeit without the mafia.
I recommend it if you have spare time and have the fucking time to read 358 chapters. And like all mangas that have excessive information, if you are not like me, you may or may not absorb all the info on the first read. Not that it matters anyways.
But for me, this manga somewhat opened my eyes, and taught me that "Everyone was born with a pair of wings. And it is up to us to spread those wings and fly to the sky."
