Pair Puri are a set of Shin Tenipuri guidebooks that started being released this month
The first of which is Sanada/Atobe
Included in this is a few short omake. One features the average morning for Atobe and the other shows a morning at Sanada's house.
Also included are some short character analysis pages, including a timeline for each character and the equipment each uses.
The best part, it's all in color.
I'll be scanning this and working my way on translating it all.
The second is expected in December and will feature Tezuka/Shiraishi.
You can grab a High Res Raw of it HERE and HERE
NOTE: The Raw is free for any to use AFTER I start making translations...I may be giving JAC Group first dibs since I have a friend there who is interests ^^

For a terrible second, I thought this was about yaoi fanfiction.
But now I'm both relieved and slightly interested. Sai, you are the best!
Thanks, Sai. This is certainly great and interesting news.
Sanada's comic shows you his little brother and apparently he and his grandpa share a rivalry with the Tezuka family
As for the info presented, a lot of it just builds on stuff in the databooks.
However the most interesting thing is the timeline which shows the most important events in the characters' lives by their age and the month of the year in that age. For example, it'll tell you exactly what year Sanada started his rivalry with Tezuka and such.
Also interesting is each character school schedule and such.

Oh, thanks for the download link!
The short story of Atobe jumping out of an airplane was absolutely hilarious. Even without knowing the dialog its still funny.
Atobe's a blond now? Wasn't he a brunette before?
It's not a little brother. It's his nephew, the son of Sanada's older brother. He called oji-san, if I'm not mistaken.
Sanada and Yukimura had known each other since 4 years old, as well as Atobe and Kabaji.
But then again, a lot of characters have their hair dyed for the anime. Like Kamio's purple, which was originally light brown aswell. Ootori's blonde hair was originally white (or was it the opposite?), Jiro had brown hair and the anime's blonde, and we could carry on almost forever.
Either way, I'm -DEEPLY- interested on knowing everything the book has.. Sai, any chance you or anyone else is interested enough to translate (I won't really need scanlations.. text is enough) all of it?

This is awesome. More backgrounds ftw
First of all, huge thanks to Sai_the_Shaman for posting this up so quickly.
Now I am really curious to see what the other pairings will be, more specifically, who is Konomi-sensei going to pair with Echizen. He's only ever played doubles with Momoshiro, hasn't he? Or will the pairs not depend on whether they've played doubles together?
At any rate, this is awesome squared. ^_^
Volume 2 is going to be Tezuka and Shiraishi. Looking forward to that.
Interesting that those four have known each other for so long. I can see how Sanada and Yukimura could have met in elementary school or something, but with Atobe and Kabaji I have to wonder. Atobe seems like such a jet setter. I can't imagine him staying in one place long enough to make a friend as devoted as Kabaji.
Not to mention that I only ever watched the anime for the crack.
I was speaking purely of his hair color is Konomi's color manga pages. It was a medium to light-ish brown, which is why I am surprised to see Konomi change it to an almost highlighter yellow in all of the Shin TeniPuri material.
Well like you said, Atobe is a trend setter. It's not too far fetch to believe Atobe would lighten his own hair color...
Plus we have that whole issue of how he grew his hair back so quickly.....
I'm pretty damn sure its still a wig. The colouring is nice though.
