Hikaru no Go.

The main character, Hikaru, comes upon a goban (a board that Go, an ancient Chinese board game, is played on) and it turns out to have the spirit of a man who played Go over 1000 years ago, and didn't pass on because he wanted to keep playing Go. Later, Hikaru starts playing Go himself until he becomes a professional, trying to surpass his rival, Akira Touya.

Okay, that doesn't sound that exciting, but when I read the manga I thought it was really good. Apparently it even caused a spurt in the popularity of the game at the time.

You're right. That doesn't sound too exciting, no offense. What did they do to keep it interesting?

Shoot. We need something like that here for NASCAR. God knows they could use a ratings boost.
