    1)Atobe vs Hiyoshi
    I hated Hiyoshi. Then I watched this match. Now I am his fan. It was THAT GOOD.
    You only liked it cuz u predicted the scored correctly! 47-45!

    My fav in part 2 though...

    Renji vs Kirihara
    Forget about returning 212kmh Waterfall, he returned a freaking Devil Knuckle Serve!!!

    Krauser vs Richard
    Short lived but....the ending was brilliant.

    Krauser is my second favourite character now xD

    Hirakoba vs Higashitaka
    We didn't even get to see the match xD...go go Rin!

    Re: Top 5 Favorite Matches in the Series (part 1)?

    Here's mine. I ranked it by how well it was directed (anime).

    1. Atobe vs. Tezuka
    It was Atobe and Tezuka's 1st big match in the anime. The direction of the match is awesome. Very well done.

    2. Echizen vs. Akutsu
    Akutsu is one of my fav characters. (Loved the soundtrack used here, really really)
    Again, the anime did well here (i wonder who the director is).

    3. Momo/Kawamura vs. 'David'/Kurobane (ep 93)
    Dash Hadokyou pawns.

    4. Sanada vs. Tezuka
    There is no dull moment.

    5. Inui vs. Yanagi
    Inui is also one of my fav characters, and former partner Yanagi is just the right opponent for Inui.

    Re: Top 5 Favorite Matches in the Series (part 1)?

    1. Echizen VS Atobe
    Coolest match in my opinion. It’s just awesome.
    2. Fuji VS Shiraishi
    First time seeing Fuji loses. He’s my favourite character, but the way he invent the 5th counter is very cool. I don’t feel as excited when he announce the 6th counter because he done it before.
    3. Inui VS Renji
    My favourite match of Kantou final, don’t know why. Sanada vs Echizen would make it here if Yukimura didn’t mention things like Sanada ‘sealing’ his technique. My liking for that match just drop way down.
    4. Tezuka VS Sanada
    Tezuka phantom is just plain cool. I still think to this day that Tezuka should have won the match because he manage to put spin on the ball through. I don’t really like the way that Sanada win by shouting, just not make sense at all, unless his roar has enough shock wave or something like that to be enough to move the ball, in which case he should do it more often. But despite the ending, the match itself is great.
    5. Momoshiro + Kaidou VS gay pair
    I just like this one because of Momoshiro being a great trickster. Not much to say.

    Re: Top 5 Favorite Matches in the Series (part 1)?

    I guess I should finally put mine down..

    1) Sanada vs Echizen Anime style...I know its anime filler but it was SO FREAKING AWESOME to watch Echizen get pounded by Sanada. Made the whole anime series worth watchin. Little arrogant pipsqueak needed a firm spanking at least once in this series.

    The rest simply because I have to fill 4 more spots...

    2) Inui vs Renji
    3) Taka vs Kabaji
    4) Kikimaru vs Kai
    5) Atobe vs Tezuka
    Dang, starting to get too old for manga and anime....

    Sanada didn't "win" by shouting. Sanada won because Tezuka couldn't hit the ball over the net and lost.

    I beg to differ. It was through shouting, because that is how shonen works. Whoever shouts the loudest wins.

    Sanada did win 'that point' and the match by shouting.
    But Sanada shouting or not, he wins the game. Even if Tezuka got that point, they're both at their limits and I assume they cant continue after that point so Sanada wins cause he has the lead 6-5

    Meh, I got no idea why Tezuka didn't use his right hand. He might not be able to use any of his tech with it, but it should be sufficient to beat Sanada with that leg injury. (In one of the flashback Tezuka show the ability to play with his right hand, so he can play with it) But I guess with all the 'pressure' he forgot to do so.

    His right had is weak sauce in comparison to his left. He can't actually play a person as good as Sanada with it and win. Now if Sanada can't walk Tezuka will stomp him with just his right hand. That's why that point was so important. If Sanada didn't win that point I don't really see how he could have continued...

    Now, that I think about, Kirihara's match vs Krauser was also worth watching
    (I suppose reason is obvious, no?)

    Re: Top 5 Favorite Matches in the Series (part 1)?

    Mine would have:

    1. Tezuka vs. Atobe
    When everything about PoT was still basically realistic. And plus, this was the time where Atobe debuted his infamous finger-snapping, jacket-throwing "Atobe/Hyoutei chant". So fetch!

    2. Ryoma vs Atobe
    When I say it was awesomeness, it's awesomeness. Atobe was playing for Hyoutei. Koshimae was playing for Seigaku. Having the cockiest characters give their all for their team. Man, that's just really awesomeness.

    3. Golden Pair vs Niou/Yagyuu
    Screw the anime! This was the most legendary doubles match. Nothing can top this one.

    4. Tezuka vs Sanada
    Woah! The ultimate broken techniques in full action. FuRinKaZan vs Tezuka Zone. Tezuka Phantom vs Rai. It was crazy. Even emotional at times. Now, that's really great.

    5. Tezuka vs Kite
    Only because Hyoutei and Shitenhouji watched it. And more importantly, the Three Demons watched it! Sanada being badass with Seigaku regulars not knowing about Hyakuren.."Fools. They go to the same school and they don't even know." Whack! Yukimura first shown with his uniform..."It's been a while...since I've seen Tezuka use 'that'." *me is happy* It implied that Tezuka, Sanada and Yukimura had history together. I assumed right away that they played for the same school before middle high. Several chapters later, Sanada's flashback revealed different things but still...I was happy that they knew of each other even before.

    And plus this showed Koshimae that Tezuka was still the real boss in Seigaku..."I remember you telling me once to become Seigaku's pillar of support....I will take it from you. I will take Seigaku's pillar from your hands."

    Again, screw the anime for omitting the part instead put Oishi to explain everything. I was like WHATTHEHELL!?!? What's the problem with you people?

    Re: Top 5 Favorite Matches in the Series (part 1)?

    My top 5 are (in no particular order)
    Echizen vs yukimura
    I've gotta say, it takes some guts to make a character so good that he invalidates the ENTIRE series, someone who could literally bagel everyone. You see all these techniques, yama arashi, cool drive, rai, that the best characters struggle for half a set to return and yuki just smacks them back like you're not even trying. Also the bamf way he took out Hyaku ren by noticing that it doesn't matter how hard you can hit the ball if you CAN'T hit the ball.
    Tezuka vs Sanada
    I was pulling for tezuka on this (not a sanada fan shh), and I respected him for countering what is the third most broken technique in the series (behind PoP and being yukimura). It was great with all of the flashbacks and the drama of tezuka trying to come through for his team(he wanted to win so bad probably because he really didn't want their win to rest on whether koshimae could beat yukimura) While we're on the subject though, if sanada could use rai, had triple match point and didn't capitalize, then he didn't deserve to win against echizen.
    Fuji vs Kirihara
    One pf the things that best sums up this match is when fuji wins the first game and the rikkai fans shut up and realize that for the first time a seigaku player might really be better. Closed eyes is a beast technique and the fact that he could beat bloodshot kirihara and muga kirihara while blind cements his genius status. Its hard to believe you can win when you find yourself thinking "How the hell did he do that?"
    Kirihara vs Krauser
    You have all of three seconds when reading the manga to swallow tha not only did yagyuu, bunta and jackal lose, but kirihara is about to get bloodily bageled. I liked the irony of kirihara having to play probably the one person in the world more insane than he is. Devil mode surprised me, but it was pretty cool to see kirihara finally go over the deep end (I vote him most likely to become a serial killer one day). I want to see more from krauser now.
    Tezuka vs Atobe
    Earliest clash of two of the best and it didn't disappoint, really hated atobe after it but now he's one of my faves
    Part 2
    Irie vs Atobe
    No competition so far for best match of shin PoT, and I feel like its going to be a while before they beat it. It was pretty easy to see irie's comeback coming, I mean, not even atobe can annihilate a court 1 player easily (yet) and the realization was perfect "Oh my gosh, atobe is about to get mizuki'd, by his long lost clone" It was so perfect when irie uses WoI on him and abused his injury in the tiebreak (huge fan of karma). My one complaint is that if Atobe is going to be developed then he needs to learn techniques that aren't slight tweaks on what he can already do, especially no more cool drive variations. Atobe kingdom was awesome until you realized that it was just WoI that works on good people. Looking forward to some good matches soon though
