    I've been wondering if there really is a true head coach. We've yet to see said coach and the regular coaches have still been directing things since the Top 20 returned. Maybe we'll meet the head coach, if he exists, after the G10 matches.

    I've been jokingly telling myself it's Nanjiroh or Ryuuzaki lol. I can't remember if it was anime or manga only, but he described the ferocity and animosity of Ryoma and Jin's match as "Kids tennis". U-17's ruthless style due to Samurais influence?

    /Baseless Conjecture.

    On another token i suspected it to be Nyuudo, since they sort of imply the black Jerseys hell training makes them stronger than the standard camp training methods.

    That's all anime-only stuff that was randomly thrown in.

    Mifune never comes down, nor does he travel with the first string (he also seemingly dislikes/has enmity for the regular camp coaches).

    I believe Ryoma VS Migihashi was a nice touch.
    PoT anime always had a TON of filler episodes, so I really liked the sake thingy and Ryoma vs Migihashi. They always say that they try to write the anime a bit different from the manga (they screwed up with the key matches as you said, but they are in OVA's so it's aight I guess, it's not like PoT's Kanto finals where... they screwed up and acted as if everything was ok in the Nationals Ovas lol).

    I would totally watch it again... it's PoT ffs . The only thing I don't like at all are the "3d" animations, like the car in the first chapter or the "ball about to be served" animation that appears in every single damn match u.u .

    I don't like those awkward zoomed out rallies they adopted in the anime lol. They look CGish...really funny looking. A rally between Atobe and Irie comes to mind.

    That almost ruined Yamato VS Tezuka for me.
    The EXACT same repeated scene. Where a ball is just tossed at the center of the screen.
    They screwed up big time.

    I'd say, because it was only 13 Episodes, it makes it even worse.
    I give NPoT 4/10.
    I mean, whilst the Kanto Finals were terrible, I compare the Nationals OVA + Another Story I series(Not Another Story II), which is practically a masterpiece in terms of Sports Anime's.
    They got the OST's perfect, Only about 40 different OST's were used in the Nationals but it was done really well.

    At least Kanto arc didn't CUT key matches in the arc as opposed to making bad versions of them in the series.
    All NPoT did was cut them, then create bad versions and charge the people in Japan for it on DVD.

    I mean, if the whole thing was 26 episodes, I wouldn't have minded since they would have made space for everything and I would have gladly endured the Mountain Climbing.
    There is so much possible filler material to take from the Pair Puri's as well too like Niou buying that Yukimura wig for Jackal etc.
    Or Mizuki losing to a 6thCourt dude.

    Re: Shin Prince of Tennis Hangout Thread

    Is there a reason that none of the genius 10 matches have involved actual doubles pairs? Niou and Marui normally played doubles for Rikkai, but they didn't even play with their partners, and Niou played by impersonating singles players.

    It would have been nice to see some of the known doubles pairs improvement since POT, after nationals the oishi/eiji pairs weakness was that eiji had surpassed oishi as a player, after the mountain training, their skills are probably much closer, only 1 away based on their stats.

    Also, it was weird that they chose the number 2 power player from nationals to face the genius 10's number 1 power player, Kawamura beat Gin and is the number 1 middle school power player

    I might just be looking too much into this because they aren't picking my favorite characters to play, even though the kite/marui team was kinda cool

    GP wasn't good against the Mutsus, both Renji and Inui had to tag to beat the no 17, WoK lost against a 3rd court pair... and I'm not even going to name Silver pair and Champion pair. The pairs we already know have no chance against the top 10

    Re: Shin Prince of Tennis Hangout Thread

    I would hardly call Kawamura the no. 1 power player for the middle schoolers. he won based on an enexpected fluke shot that Gin couldn't nullify. Even Kawamura wouldnt call himself the No. 1 power player. Even stats wise, Gin has more power than Kawamura.

    speaking of Kawamura, im quite disappointed that Konomi never built upon the shot he used to beat Gin. The non Hadoukyuu Power Shot. I think it wouldve been much more interesting to have him learn to hit that shot and name it himself and have that be his new signature move.

    Wasn't that the serve he used against Date / Ban and gave him "the win"?

    The serve was a 108th hadoukyuu. I dont recall him framing the serve either like he did with the 'final hadoukyuu' used against Gin.

    I do find it weird how he is able to use hadoukyuu as serves.

    Seriously man.
    This has been on my mind since the very first match in Shin Prince of Tennis.
    I only want to see Canon pairs and I'm sick of Makeshift pairs haha.

    When Kabaji tried to copy Jirou's magic volley, he couldn't because he didn't have his flexible wrists, there is a chance that Niou couldn't copy eiji to his full potential because he didn't have the flexibility necessary to use eiji's acrobatics to their full potential, and it's also possible that he copied eiji from nationals and not the eiji that has improved from training at the U-17 camp

    oishi has some of the lowest stats in PoT/SPoT, and yet he's one of the best doubles players in the series because doubles is about more than just physical abilities, it's also about how you mesh with your partner, and knowledge of different doubles techniques and formations, and GP had that in spades, especially compared to the 7-8 pair


    Also their are other good doubles pairs, niou and yagyuu, marui and jackal, ootori and shishido, and after the u-17 camp training and the mountain training any of them could unlock synchro, or have some other type of power up that could make them a good match for genius 10 pair, niou and yagyuu especially since niou could become yagyuu and synchro

    WoK used some sort of "wild beast synchro" at the end of their match that almost gave them the win, both of the WoK were national level singles players, just like marui and kite, they could have went more into that wild beast synchro and used that to play a genius 10 pair

    with inui and renji, inui had a better chance against 17 than renji, renji is a doubles specialist data tennis player who played a singles match with no data, inui is a singles specialist data tennis player who played a singles match with some data, 17 could be either singles or doubles, we don't know, but he's a data tennis player who played with no data, inui had data, and he was playing singles, which he's best at, he had the best shot of winning

    Kawamura played Gin, the number 1 power player at nationals and won, whether it was a fluke or not, until another power player beats him, he's still on top, plus he can now use Gin's 108th level shot, who knows how strong he really is now, all we know is that he beat Gin, and now he can use Gin's best shot plus the non hadoukyuu power shot, which would be a lot stronger now after his mountain training, he's the best middle school power player right now, until another middle school player beats him or can use a shot beyond 108th hadoukyuu

    I totally agree!!! atobe and "tezuka" was cool but they were singles players

    marui/kite was actually kind of cool, and they could switch offense and defense, kites single step and marui's volleys, then marui's total defense and kite's giant habu, but still, I'd rather see a doubles team play doubles, especially the middle school nationals number 1 doubles pair

    ---------- Post added at 05:26 PM ---------- Previous post was at 05:21 PM ----------

    I love how we get to see all the characters stats, but it would be cool if we could what their stats were when they arrived and what they are now, so we could the improvement from mountain training/camp training, we kinda get to see that with some of the 5th/3rd court shuffle match, but the stats they had during the match was most likely higher than when they started at camp

    This could give kawamura unbeatable service games

    This is so right. #15-16 pair aren't that high of a number, and they beat Golden Pair, the #1 pair in the national. WoK pair lose against a 3rd court pair. Although they oculd potentially win with wild beast syncho now, it's simply not known how far up 1st stringer they can beat with that. 1st stringers are full of beast.
    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.
