    Well, Konomi did mention in one of the volumes that he created Ryoga's character himself but could never come up with a good place in the manga to use him.

    Also, Konomi canonized(lol) Fuji vs Tezuka. He might as well bring back Ryoga. I'm telling you. He's coming back. More merchandise...MORE CHARACTER. DOCTOR WHO LOGIC NEVER FAILS.

    That's not exactly the same thing.

    Frankly, he should just saved his character design for Ryoga and just used him as an older Ryoma.

    Then again, I don't particularly like Ryoga, so I'm slightly biased here.

    Oh, I agree that it's not really the same thing, I'm just saying that it wouldn't be completely out of the blue.

    I agree with you, though. I think Ryoga is about the least interesting character in any version of Prince of Tennis, including the random mute characters in the movie and the Chinese live action version. I really wouldn't be at all interested in seeing him return.

    Konomi was going to name the main character Ryoga, who was based on his friend in real life. Then he switched it to Ryoma for some reason.

    Well, it is pretty out of the blue for people, like myself, who don't keep up with Konomi's interviews and whatnot.

    Nice to know I'm not the only one who doesn't like Ryoga. It has been a long, long time since I've seen the movie, but my two lasting memories of it are 1) it is completely silly/ridiculous/crackish and 2) Ryoga was an obnoxious douchebag.

    Oh and Tezuka killing off the dinosaurs. That was great.

    By the way, there may be a small chance that the former captain of Seigaku also being in the camp? What was his name?
    Yamato Yudai?

    I don't think so. My reason for this is that the U17 camp is specifically for the elite of Japan. Yamato was never national level. But he couldve improved but he did lose to a first year Tezuka.

    I doubt it as well. Actually, I don't think there will be anyone from Seigaku in the camp except maybe one or two. If I remember correctly it was said that Seigaku was stuck at the prefectural level before Tezuka and the others became regulars.

    Yeah, that was said. I doubt anyone from Seigaku prior to Tezuka's year is good enough to be here. I expect that some former players from Rikkaidai will be at the camp, though.

    According to OVA Another Story, didn't Kirihara beat all of the Rikkai regulars except for the three demons? Maybe Rikkai's former players aren't that exceptional either.

    Yeah but thats anime though...I dunno. If you think about it, all those high schoolers who were 3rd years when Big 3 were first years would now be second years. We haven't heard too much about them at the moment. Maybe. They did win the nationals...although I think one of them lost to Tezuka in Kantou Semis...

    According to FET's biographies, you're right that Tezuka won against a Rikkai OB in the 2007 Kanto Tournament.

    I think I'd rather see Konomi focus more on expanding on the character he has, rather than introducing more. I've been dead curious about Crauzer ever since it was revealed that he was a first year. Same with Tokugawa know that I know he's a (high school) second year.

    I'm also quite curious about Krauzer, but I'm very interested in finding out more about this Tokugawa Kazuya. He just seems like a quite interesting guy to me, and seems to be one of the future "hard opponents" like Atobe and Yukimura were to Echizen.

    I hope so.
    That would mean he'd get a boost in the Fan League as well, haha.
