Also why is everyone gaga for Kazuya? I need to reread the first few chapters but it's not Like Kazuya is the number one of the upper courts or anything right?
And as for Kazuya, yeah, you're right. It's never mentioned that he's the number 1 player of the second string, and he's not even in the first string. But I guess the only reason everyone thinks he's all that is because he managed to freeze Kirihara by just staring at him, and because he's the only player we've seen from court 1 so far. But we don't know much about him yet. Who knows? For all we know, he could be a member of the first string that got injured or something like that.
Kazuka, Katana, Oni... = Hype
It's necessary for a "new" manga like Shin Prince of Tennis.
A lot of people would be complaining if there were no new characters.
And being the first of appear doesn´t mean they are the best, of course. The first "really powerful but unknown rival" we saw in PoT was Kirihara,in a very early chapter, and right now we know he isn´t maybe in TOP 10 of PoT.
Javimgol's right... New characters add suspense, make discussions interesting, and keep readers hooked right? Kazuya could be amazing, but he could be boring too. We just don't know... not enough info yet. I hope to see him in a shuffle match soon.
I would argue that Kirihara BARELY makes the top 10 in prequel PoT, but this isn't the right thread for that lol. Plus I'm sure there are high schoolers out there that are better than he is.
I'm well aware of what you guys are saying..it's just that to me Kazuya is generic..idk i like the one with the glasses most..he seems the most interesting.
Also..remember Akaya used to kick the HS ass when practicing..i think he beat 10 left handed High schoolers in row in practice for Kanto.
Yea, left handed high schoolers of what level?
Wait, I only recall Akaya beating the HS left-handers in the anime. Does anyone have the link to the page in the manga where Akaya beat the high schoolers, or was this an anime-only thing? (I didn't start reading the manga until the Rikkai National Finals - other than that, I've only jumped around the actual manga series)
Anyways, weren't the high schoolers that Akaya beat regulars on the Rikkai high school team? I don't think they were that good - more than likely, Rikkai's high school team is not as successful as their middle school team.
Akaya beat the high schoolers <-- Manga too. Also, they were part of the team who contributed to their 2 championships, but Sanada said "they were revising for entry to high school" whilst Sanada and co had a whole summer to practising and that there was no way they would lose.
I see. Darn, I should go back and read the original PoT manga - I feel like I'm missing out. Anyways, do you know which chapter this was?
http://www.onemanga.com/Prince_of_Tennis/186/05/), I don´t know where is that part...
