I think the Black Hole is like the real thing. Whatever is sucked into it, is the end. So unless Byodoin can somehow counter Black Hole, I can't see him winning.
February 13, 2014 12:43 AM
That makes sense.
Chapter 119 = :o
February 11, 2014 12:56 AM
When he was first introduced, he was very honorable. Even his seiyu (and other seiyus) praises his honor. But in NPoT, he isn't as honorable anymore.
No more responses here. If you want to...
February 01, 2014 06:35 PM
In the manga, Kanata retold a story that when Byodoin lost to Oni, he spent the year at the mountains doing back-breaking intensive training. Simplified version of what Phantron said :P But of...
January 31, 2014 07:36 PM
Tokugawa went out straight away, exhausting him. Byodoin has the advantage now.
January 31, 2014 06:35 PM
I kind of expect Tokugawa to activate PoP when he's really struggling, like the match Kintaro vs Oni/Ryoma vs Yukimura. But since Tokugawa barely smiles, he could secretly enjoy the match.
January 27, 2014 06:53 PM
Kawamura and Kabaji earned it after saving No.12 & 13's life, not by winning. That's some form of honor. Yanagi on the other hand I'm still questioning but apparently Inui gave it to him because...
January 23, 2014 09:12 PM
Sanada probably won't accept it without a match. He has honor. He isn't going to accept something unless he truly earns it.
January 23, 2014 06:42 PM
That could happen. But he will more or less entrust his badge to Sanada considering they're that close.
January 23, 2014 06:40 PM
Looks like an intense match going on.
January 21, 2014 07:04 PM
I've been thinking that Yukimura might forfeit his badge to Sanada, after they have a match. Since he still isn't 100% recovered from his disease.
I don't think Renji, Momoshiro, and Kenya deserve...
January 21, 2014 05:48 AM
We all have theories and everyone is allowed to have a say but sometimes its gets out of hand.
January 21, 2014 04:51 AM
It was a thought/theory :P
January 21, 2014 03:04 AM
Well I don't know if you've noticed but in ep one of NPoT, where the high schoolers couldn't get a ball to stay at the camp and challenged the middle schoolers for their balls, all the MSs that were...
January 20, 2014 08:21 PM
I'm sure Fuji would be able to partner up with Oishi :P He can play doubles, however we've only seen him in doubles with Eiji and Kawamura.
January 20, 2014 07:34 PM
According to a drawing by Konomi himself, Shiraishi and Fuji become part of the first stringers. I'm guessing eventually Shiraishi will be 13 and Fuji be 15....
January 18, 2014 07:14 PM
Photo of Tokugawa serving looks like some super fast seve that even Byodoin couldn't hit. Match sounds interesting.
January 18, 2014 07:08 PM
Regarding the question about shifts in the top 20, I do think they might have. I think it could be that if you challenge someone higher above you and if you win, you can get their badge and they get...
January 18, 2014 03:02 AM
^ I like your number theory. It would be good if that were true. If your theory was correct, Duke would be at least number 4. So Duke just moved up to make room for Ryoga.
I'd be disappointed if...
January 12, 2014 12:12 AM
I'd be really disappointed if he lost in general. He would break his promise to Oni and Kanata, their training was a waste, as well as he's hype was built for nothing. I've been rooting for him to...
January 10, 2014 06:32 PM
I think that picture shows it'll probably be an awesome match between the two.
January 03, 2014 07:51 PM
I don't think any of the HSs are dumb. I think its their pride that they put on the line. Kintaro wanted a higher number than 14 and because he thought he knew Oni's playstyle, he could win but he...
January 02, 2014 12:56 AM
I think its odd in Konomi's work to introduce playing fun tennis in the final stages of the nationals. But as soon as HSs enter, its all about murdering people with tennis. Big change.
December 29, 2013 11:36 PM
@ Phantron: LOL
I'd very much like Byodoin be lectured by someone. It'll be awesome to introduce his younger sister and she's the one he goes soft on and listens to.
If no one had courage to face...
December 29, 2013 06:32 PM
I'd like the Tokugawa vs Byodoin match be like Akaya vs Fuji. Fuji teaches Akaya that "Tennis is not a tool to breed hatred". I'd love to see Byodoin receive a lecture from Tokugawa.
It also shows...
December 29, 2013 12:19 AM
Well, that manga page shows why Tokugawa is willing to die to defeat Byodoin. Serious injuries there. Payback.
December 20, 2013 06:31 PM
That right there :)
I started it sort of by saying Yukimura is the best MS, excluding PoP users. Without it, they'd be yipped.
December 20, 2013 07:08 AM
We know mountain campers have improved vastly. But the winners have also improved through different training. Oni was a winner and never went to mountain training yet he is capable of returning 10...
December 19, 2013 10:26 PM
@ Ken: Since Fuji was the first known character to counter SnK, Yukimura is likely to figure it out. He is a demigod afterall. I'd assume he'd also figuire out how to counter HnK after adjusting to...
December 19, 2013 06:19 PM
At the last minute was Yukimura able to adjust to PoP's playing style. Who else can do that? If he can adjust to PoP, he should be able to adjust the SnK and HnK in no time since its not the ultimate...
December 19, 2013 07:33 AM
I still think Ryoma wouldn't last with only 2 doors against Yukimura. Yukimura would find a way to counter the two doors. We saw with Fuji he could counter SnK. Whose to say Yukimura won't? To...
December 19, 2013 04:45 AM
Hmm. I don't remember him being at a disadvatage from those 2 doors. I know Ryoma scored a few points but never a game until PoP was activated. That was Yukimura's first ever game loss. So I wouldn't...
December 19, 2013 01:25 AM
^ If excluding PoP users, he would be. From what we've seen, only PoP seems to be the only time he's disadvantaged.
December 18, 2013 06:46 PM
Kaoz and Ravelt summed it up nicely.
December 18, 2013 04:38 AM
Those nicknames are of human beings basically. Whereas Demigod is half-human/half-god.
I'd have to disagree with Yukimura without yips is at a disadvantage. Yips isn't a technique but a state. You...
December 17, 2013 06:26 PM
@ Korean Kuroko: Hahaha good point there. That would be an awesome doubles pair.
@ Ken: I would suspect Yukimura is the best MS since he is termed as "Demigod". Others don't have a fancy nickname...
December 17, 2013 04:25 AM
@ Korean Kuroko: Atobe/Sanada doubles happened in one of the filler episodes of the original anime.
On topic, I'd like to see Yukimura vs Byodoin. Best HS vs best MS. If Yukimura can see though...
December 12, 2013 04:16 AM
I didn't think it was real since I didn't even touch his stats/page. But since he's the top U-17 player, some wikia contributor might of been stupid and made his stats max (if there is one). A lot of...
December 12, 2013 12:59 AM
Someone wrote those 10s on his wikia page. Got it from there. I don't edit Byodoin's page other than messed up coding. I do the wikia's music pages.
December 11, 2013 06:24 PM
@ Kaoz: Fanbook 10.5
Speed - 10: Much is unknown about Byoudouin, but in his match against Oni upon entering the U-17 camp, they were hitting balls back and forth so fast that a violent dust cloud...
December 11, 2013 05:41 AM
Who do you think is stronger between the two? Ryoga returned Byodoin's Glowing Shot as if it was nothing. Byodoin also sees potential in Ryoga that's why he's accepted in as no.4. Also, Ryoga's stats...
November 26, 2013 06:54 AM
Truth be told, the people who've watched the anime only like Tokugawa because of his voice actor. Daisuke Ono is equivalent to some boyband with many obsessed teen female fans. Not saying he's...
November 25, 2013 08:15 PM
If Higa wasn't popular then why are they always in the top 5 of PoT schools. Since 2009 Seigaku, Hyotei, Rikkaidai, Shitenhoji and Higa are the top 5 schools. So yes, Higa did do well compared to...
November 25, 2013 06:43 PM
From what I've seen, only you have been able to come up with some justified reasons to not like Tokugawa, compared to everything else has about 1-2 reasons. Maybe biased wasn't a good word, but I...
November 24, 2013 07:56 PM
I'd be careful with words if people here stopped being biased.
Wow. So much pessimism. I can agree that Tokugawa is nothing special but because I've been through something similar to him, I think...
November 24, 2013 07:16 PM
Actually, Tezuka playing S2 in the nationals isn't because he didn't give a crap but because he knew Atobe would have improved and decided Ryoma should take the S1 slot to give Ryoma a boost of...
November 24, 2013 05:24 PM
Just because he's goal is common doesn't mean you have to loathe his character, or for anyone else here. I'm sure (hopefully), Konomi will give him more character and more background. Then maybe...
