    Confused Echizen Ryoga

    How come he would have a older brother? if you watch again the prince of tennis there is a episode regarding about Nanjiro Echizen 15 years where he met Echizen's mother. That is the time they marry and have a son. 9 Months of Pregnancy am i right? It also show in the episode 10 years before where Echizen was a 2 or 3 years of age and yet he have a older brother with 3 or 4 years of age gap. How could that happen? Again 15 years and yet on the manga his brother was High Schooler. High Schooler has an average of 16-19 years of age.

    It's real... at least that's what they said in the movie IIRC (...and Ryoga was born in the movie, so I guess Konomi will leave that explanation).

    Usually movie arent cannon, but since he's introduced in shin pot, well its canon now, but they never met , so pretend the movie never happened. we the readers already got possible insider info from watching the movie.

    Now we know he is blood related. Hes ryomas half older brother. On this note, do you think he's as was stated in the movie, the one closest to the former samurai nanjiro.

    Re: Echizen Ryoga

    I read a translated Konomi interview in regards to the movie. He said that Ryoma secretly had always wanted an older brother. When Konomi was asked for ideas for the movie, he introduced Ryoga.

    So he thought of Ryoga a while back but couldnt bring him into canon due to the limitations of plot.

    Re: Echizen Ryoga

    Well, the anime and the movie both isn't canon, so whatever happens in the anime that contradicts the manga isn't really plot hole regardless.
    Most of the thing I post is probably assumption if it's not a fact that I support using some evidence from the manga.

    If you knows you're on my ignore list and you quote my post, there's high chance I would ignore you. Or answer you and not look at your response.

    Re: Echizen Ryoga

    Well the movie is sort of canon. Now we know Ryoga exists and that he lived with the Echizens for awhile. That much from the movie was canon.

    Re: Echizen Ryoga

    The ending is canon as the first stringers picked him up overseas and ryoga at the end went off to explore the world. The whole movie is like canon and non-canon mixed up. The part of staying with the echizens is canon but the rest except the ending is non-canon. That was just for the movie.

    Ryoga might actually be quite difficult for konomi to develop right now as he seems rather perfect. He can counter the glowing shot, he can hit 11 balls simultaneoisly including the orange and he is an echizen. I think we might actually see nanjiroh through ryoga.

    Re: Echizen Ryoga

    Well, the part of the movie that was shown in the manga is canon, but only those part. Being part canon doesn't make the whole thing canon. The PoT anime is part canon as well with all the fillers and modification that it made, but it still retains many canon events.
    Most of the thing I post is probably assumption if it's not a fact that I support using some evidence from the manga.

    Still, its partly canon so it wasn't completely uncanon.
