    Yukimura isn't in Court 5 because he has yet to be put into a shuffle match against a Court 5 player to beat.

    I believe Konomi made Akutsu stay behind to have him train/battle with Oni. There is some tension going on between those two. I believe Oni could be responsible for Akutsu's development.

    And if they're that great, what about the first string in Korea!?! If the level of Japanese tennis, what about the world?! Konomi, good luck on making broken techniques!
    I also have a theory that each court has some sort of gatekeeper, despite their skill level. Oni is the gatekeeper of court 5, despite his skill being greater. I believe Irie and Kazuya could be the gatekeepers to courts 3 and 1. I think all 3 of them could be court 1 skill level.

    Fair point

    So in theory, you believe that those three could've been in the first string top 20 but only stayed behind to be a) Japans trump cards and B) train the middle schoolers and C) prevent any useless players climbing higher?

    Hmmm I'm more interested in the new Court 1 guy.

    Tanegashima Shouji.

    Kazuya's only a 2nd Year in High School, so that could be why he addresses Shouji so respectfully, but Shouji just seems to exude hidden power from him imo XD

    As for a list of stuff we know about the high schoolers right now

    Court 1:
    Tokugawa Kazuya - 2nd Year
    Tanegashima Shouji - 3rd Year

    Court 3:
    Irie Kanata - 3rd Year
    Yamato Yuudai - 2nd Year
    Matsudaira Chikahiko - Unknown
    Miyako Shinobu - Unknown
    Suzuki Shun - Unknown
    Washio Issa - Unknown
    Nakagauchi Sotomichi - Unknown

    5th Court
    Oni Juujirou - 3rd Year

    I find it interesting that Kazuya is only a 2nd Year and already in Court 1. I wonder if there are any 1st Year High Schoolers around and if we'll be seeing any other alumni form different schools. Maybe those 3rd years Atobe killed when he was a 1st year at Hyoutei. Maybe they're on Court 2 or 4 now and want vengeance on Atobe lol.

    Tokugawa Kazuya is definitely is a rikkai alumni.Look at Akaya calling him big brother.He seems to know him..Another one i can think of is nishiki, an OB from rikkai.I wonder if he's in the camp.

    I still think that the line-up of the challengers is pretty weird.

    Specially D2 and S3. Everyone would have loved a D2 with two of the trio Akutsu/Kirihara/Krauser, or even Gin or Kite, and keep Shiraishi for the Singles match. Shiraishi needs a good lose, and he deserves an epic Singles match. I simply can not see him pairing with Kirihara, except if you want to play a game called Bible+Devil.

    Atobe is going to face Irie, his last real match was VS Ryoma when, 3 years ago?, and fangirls could get angry. It's going to be 2-2 at that time, I can not see another scenario. And the only possible way to get two points is Krauser winning (D2 and Tez VS Yamato looks really a very hard match for Court 5),and I have no fu****** idea how the hell will he win.
    So Proud to be Spanish:
    World and Europe Champion of Football.Real Madrid Best Team Ever,has 10 Champions League
    Rafael Nadal, tennis player with the Golden Slam( 4 Grand Slam and Gold Olympic Medal)
    Europe Champion and Olympic Subchampion of Basketball,Pau Gasol Champion of the NBA '09,'10

    F.Alonso, World Champion in '05 and '06, #1 of Ferrari
    Jorge Lorenzo, Alberto Contador, Adam Raga...
    ¡Viva España!

    Kazuya isn't a Rikkai Alumnus. Akaya called him nii-san cause Kazuya is older than him. It's common to call kids older than you nii-san or nee-san.

    Nishiki ain't that great, he got owned by Sanada, I think 6-3 without even using any skills.

    and Kazuya was only 2nd year? =O

    And anybody wanting vengeance from Atobe wont get it. I just know it. Apart from those beast.

    Mega prediction time:
    Irie is in fact the old Hyotei captain. Since apparently everyone gets a makeover in high school, that's why hyotei didn't recognize him.

    Yeah, but Sanada said that was because Nishiki was out of shape due to studying for entrance exams. I think it's possible he could be here somewhere. I mean, I got the impression that he was better than Yamato, at the very least. Nishiki was with Rikai when they won National Championships, so he has to be pretty skilled.

    Irie is a third year in High School, so he would have already graduated from Middle School before any of the current guys were even there.

    He skipped grades.


    Quote Quote:
    As for Krauser in S3, I'm unsure. We've only seen him in two matches. We know Devil Mode Akaya is better than him and the Richard is lower than him. It's a pretty huge gap right there in his opponents' strengths. I have a feeling Krauser may lose. I knwo everybody else want's him to win, but the guy he's facing looks like the Terminator....I can't imagine Krauser overpowering him enough to crucify him.
    I do.

    The match will go like this:
    [Krauser starts to lose]
    Terminator: Is that a tumor?
    Krauser: IT'S NOT A TUMOR! God...Grant me revenge! And if you do not listen, then to HELL with you!
    [Krauser punches a camel and wins]

    Nishiki is a 1st year high schooler atm and he probably never played Yamato. Besides, its a new and improved Yamato. And anyway, I got the impression that middle school tennis was pretty weak before the series started - just take a look at Kanto Atobe and Tezuka. Furhtermore, I'm pretty sure Rikkai's 2nd national winning pattern revolved around Sanada, Yukimura and Yanagi. Marui and Jackal were known double pairs so they mustve been regulars. Two spots left for Nishiki and most likely Niou. At any rate, before the rules were changed, two auto doubles and one singles were enough to win so Yanagi + someone, Rikkai Pair and Sanada.

    Inoue refers to him on the following page as "a member of last year's championship team", so I assume he was probably an important part of that team.
