Yukimura and Sanada on the same team is broken. I understand Konomi doing this.
But its world wide tennis right? i remember Mr Inoe complaining about a lack of good Japanese players..whose to say the other countries teams are any less broken?
Then again all of Nagoya were foreigners who were promptly crushed once Rikkai got all the alcohol out of their system
Momo has got plot hax. He just got a new rival, he won't lose until they meet each other.
Tezuka,Fuji and Echizen also have Plot hax.
I wonder about the rest of them...
If it comes down to Sanada vs Yukimura, I think Yukimura should win, if only because he only played one match in the entire series.

Even though Momoshiro lost, he really showed how awesome he was, essentially playing without his arms. That has to be among the most awesome things anyone has done in the series.
The matchups definitely look great, and I'm sure the whole 'loser goes home' thing is a psychological tactic.
I really don't know if it is a tactic or not. I think it is 70/30. I don't think the losers will play on the Japan team.

Twist spin screws up your shoulder
wow...im 23 posts late for the zoro comment >.<
if it wasnt for the new hs characters, i woulda said this is all fanservice. now, its actually awesome PoT again.
Kind of a deception to wait a month for that. Not a lot of pages and not much happened.
Playing with 2 strings is just... ugh.
Can't say I care much about Momoshiro either. Quite frankly seeing all the old characters back makes me sad. I thought a new series meant new storylines but it looks like a lot of it will be rehashed with the same characters just different matches. Originally, I hope hoping to see Echizen in the USA. After the 1st chapter, I was hoping for a new team with the other characters being pushed aside... Now it seems that they will have their own plots, without a doubt.
Anyways, it felt like I was reading a weekly manga, not a monthly manga, in terms of size and developpement. I already dislike monthly mangas but I was hoping he would at least make larger chapters if it was going to be monthly.
Also from an mangaka's standpoint..getting the old characters that the fanbase grew to love over almost 9 years for some new characters they may not like? is not good for your manga's popularity
Also now that i read the scanlations...
Oni reminds me of Blanka and Udo Akira from Air gear
Udo Akira was a d class rider who had the strength of an A class but prevented others from climbing like Oni
And the guy looks like Blanka from SF

Seriously how long will it take to show off all these known characters before the story can advance? 2 years? The wait is just too long with this monthly thing... but still, I liked that chapter pretty much.
But I doubt most of these matches are going to be shown in full. We'll have to wait and see next month, though. But I'd guess some of them like Tachibana vs Kadowaki might only take one or two panels to show.
