    So...Momo got smoked...and Konomi has the common sense to come up with awesome matchups

    Demi God VS The emperor

    May end up becoming my favorite match and usurping Atobe VS Echizen

    And Konomi needs to learn how to proportion his rackets..sometimes they're the right size other times they look like kids rackets

    Momo proves that he's taken lessons from Roronoa Zoro

    One last thing, about the guy who beat momo

    If you watched the PoT live action Movie, Egate or whatever his name is hit shot that destroyed the strings of Ryoma's racket and ryoma ends up with two strings and hits a cool drive, perhaps Konomi was referencing that..

    Konomi is showing the precision of these HS kids...the fact that he can rally with that Racket means that Blanka is always hitting the sweet spot (or where it should be)

    Does Momo's opponent's racket only have 2 strings, one going up and down, while the other is left and right? If that's the case, how can he hit a ball with that many strings? (At least that's what it looks like to me).


    Edit (after finishing Chapter 5):
    I hope that Konomi-sensei allows the reader to see the 6th match, Captain vs Vice-Captain of Rikkai Dai. That should be fun to see.

    Quick summary for you people since I may not do the tl today:

    Chapter 4:

    Momo vs Oni. Oni uses a racket with a single cross gut. It looks like the Kanji for 10, which is in his name (Juu in Juujirou). Oni's nickname is Hell's Guard. When Momo tried to do a jack knife, Oni basically said that Momo's jack knife was a pansy's jack knife and that this is what a real one looks like. He essentially "broke" Momo's wrists (both of them with it).

    Chapter 5:

    Continuation of Momo/Oni match. Momo resorts to cradling his racket and kinda playing that way. Oni, keeps on jack knifing him (now know as the Black Jack Knife). No matter how many times Momo keeps getting beat down he gets back up, to everyone's surprise. Momo loses and thanks Oni for the match. Oni asks for Momo's name and tells him to come after him. We get introduced to the Mental Coach, Saitou Itaru (he's really tall and always hits his head walking into a room....his name Itaru is a play on that since it's a pun for hurting). He introduces himself to the middle schoolers. He tells them to pair up which gets everyone excited cause they think it'll be doubles. He say nope, it'll be singles and the loser of the match has to go home. The list of who vs who is pretty much already completed on the previous discussion thread by atobe the king....look it up

    This really does suck...a lot of these match ups looked awesome until this was revealed...

    wait...

    could this have been a foreshadowing? are these guys the winners of their respective matches? everyone in this image has a scheduled match up



    Oh and what was that thing in the southwest corner of this image? a DVD of sorts?

    That image was the first thing that came to my mind too, however Shiraishi isn't on there. Hopefully it isn't foreshadowing. I wouldn't want Kintarou on the team over Chitose.

    Well there are WAY more matches so maybe he just wasn't up there....but if my theory is right that mean Yukimura is out?

    Im okay with all the other ones but why did Yuki and Sanada have to play each other...? it better be the greatest freaking match of the series then

    I doubt we'll get to see the bulk of any of the matches. Stop teasing us, Konomi! They all look pretty awesome.

    Here is my theory...

    I have a serious feeling that as it is the Mental couch that people aren't really going home (maybe some, but not necessarily on the basis of the outcome of the match).

    But I think it's a mind game to get them to go all out. Then he judges them based on how they handled it.

    Question, does that mean Momo is out of the camp?

    No, that was just their normal matches.

    Then the mental coach came and gave them this exercise that they thought would be doubles, but then he revealed this elimination thing.

    My guess is:

    Jackal will play Bunta
    Echizen will play Momoshiro
    Gay guys will play each other.

    These were all picked by the players, not the coach. It is all a matter of guessing who would pick who for a doubles match.

    As for the elimination, I believe it. I don't think it is just a test.

    I think hinoai once mentioned that Yukimura was actually right where Kite is. Konomi-sensei apparently thought he looked creepy/didn't look right(?) so he was replaced.

    He won't make Yukimura go home. Please, nooooooo! T_T
    But I suppose if Yukimura can't find the strength to beat Sanada, where's the hope of him overcoming the other strong players. I wonder if he still has that self-assured confidence he displayed before his match with Echizen...

    Still, Yukimura + Sanada > most everyone else. I really hope this is just a mind game, and that only the head coach makes the real decision on who stays and who goes. >_< (I'd be happy with an epic game, though.)
