I have just finished watching 'Ace of Diamond', an anime about baseball. Initially, I wasn't planning on watching any cartoon and wasting my precious time away from my tasks, but one day, I accidentally watched it when my brother switched it on television and I ended up finishing all the 126 episodes!
I also found out that he has a lot of other animes too, most of them about sports. Among others are:
Baby Steps - an anime about tennis.
Haikyu - an anime about volleyball.
Slam Dunk - an anime about basketball.
This makes me wonder, if Japan has a lot of animes on sports, does it have an anime on chess? Apparently not. Maybe chess is not a popular sport among Japanese people. However, they do have board games, and one of the animes is Hikaru no Go, an anime about the game Go.
