  1. Sticky: [Chapter] Re: Shin Prince of Tennis Chapter 130 and 131 Discussion/Predictions

    I don't know, we haven't seen enough to judge that yet. Maybe the selection and the 1st String badges are separate issues and Atobe and Niou are still No. 9 and No. 10 of the 1st String even if they...
  2. Sticky: [Character] Re: Which 2nd year was already "Tezuka" level as of the current time.

    I can see the latter, but Kanto!Tezuka already had trouble handling Kanto!Atobe's Jack Knife (from close up, but still), so I don't know if he'd be able to defend too well against BJK even with Zone....
  3. Sticky: Poll: [Theory] Re: Which player would you pick for Ryoma's place?

    My point is that he doesn't have anything to show as far as matches are concerned though, which is clearly an important criteria for the selection when looking at who else got picked. Beating up...
  4. Sticky: Poll: [Theory] Re: Which player would you pick for Ryoma's place?

    I guess so. I wasn't counting them because they weren't really part of the camp yet if you get my point?
  5. Sticky: [Chapter] Re: Shin Prince of Tennis Chapter 130 and 131 Discussion/Predictions

    It probably is going to be longer. We'll probably have an arc of Ryoma in America next and then all the WC matches at least. Considering the G10 challenge lasted 55 chapters, we still have a long way...
  6. Sticky: [Chapter] Re: Shin Prince of Tennis Chapter 130 and 131 Discussion/Predictions

    But that's not true. The coaches didn't pit any of the MSers against any 1st Stringer and told them "if you win you get to be a rep." All the matches we've seen since the return of the 1st String...

    Let's not have another canon discussion, okay? Okay.
  8. Sticky: Poll: [Theory] Re: Which player would you pick for Ryoma's place?

    I wouldn't be surprised if the match Fuji had with Tezuka was at least part of the reason why he got chosen. Of course he got beaten badly, but just like the G10 challengers he wasn't expected to...
  9. Sticky: [Chapter] Re: Shin Prince of Tennis Chapter 130 and 131 Discussion/Predictions

    The matches definitely played a factor in who got chosen though, albeit in a different way than we imagined. It's also not like the coaches had any real influence on the challenge, all they did was...
  10. Sticky: [Chapter] Re: Shin Prince of Tennis Chapter 130 and 131 Discussion/Predictions

    The matches were to show off the best high schoolers of the nation. Hardly pointless.

    Sticky: [Info] Re: Official Fanbook Volume 10.5

    No, it isn't. Oni vs Kintarou is the last match that's completely covered. However, Akutsu's profile also shows his first serve in the 2/6 match, so basically it goes until chapter 102.

    Sticky: [Info] Re: Official Fanbook Volume 10.5

    Yeah, if the coaches had already known about Tokugawa being able to hit the glowing shot, his stats would've probably been unmeasurable. Also, he's probably supposed to always keep a balanced stat...
  13. Sticky: [Character] Re: Which 2nd year was already "Tezuka" level as of the current time.

    Hard to say. They mostly have straight forward styles, so Sanada could probably shut them down with FuuRinKaZan? I don't think he'd win on stats though.
  14. Sticky: [Character] Re: Which 2nd year was already "Tezuka" level as of the current time.

    Kaidou, Momoshiro, Kirihara, Hiyoshi, Kabaji.

    They're probably on a comparable level just because of their stats at this point, I doubt Kanto!Tezuka had more than 14 or 15 total.
  15. Sticky: [Chapter] Re: Shin Prince of Tennis Chapter 130 and 131 Discussion/Predictions

    Well, sure, it's really good, but it's nowhere near as crazy as the interdimensional or even the multi ball moves. I also don't expect there to be lots of IDM users in the WC. At this point, the...

    It's probably also done to make it look more impressive when a shot goes past a player, leaving them unable to react. Regarding KnS, players have blind spots in front of them too as shown here:...
  20. Sticky: [Chapter] Re: Shin Prince of Tennis Chapter 130 and 131 Discussion/Predictions

    Tachibana and Chitose currently have 20 and 19 total respectively. That's better or on par with Team Shuffle!Tezuka and above TS!Atobe (whose growth was said to have been extraordinary). So I don't...
  21. Sticky: [Chapter] Re: Shin Prince of Tennis Chapter 130 and 131 Discussion/Predictions

    At the moment, most likely yes. However this isn't a list for right now, but for in a few months from now. And then Fuji might be better.
  27. Sticky: [Chapter] Re: Shin Prince of Tennis Chapter 130 and 131 Discussion/Predictions

    I guess it depends on what you understand as flashy - like, in my eyes DH, Nitouryuu, Mach for instance aren't very flashy either. They're all pretty normal things and a bit (or in DH's case a lot)...
  28. Sticky: [Chapter] Re: Shin Prince of Tennis Chapter 130 and 131 Discussion/Predictions

    Yeah, I think he can. The coaches probably decided to pair him and Kaji at some point, but I'm sure he's quite the capable singles player too.
  29. Sticky: [Chapter] Re: Shin Prince of Tennis Chapter 130 and 131 Discussion/Predictions
