Im tired of people like Kabaji winning.
I dont like the idea of Kabaji being the No.13 of the All-Japan Juniors. It just doesnt seem right.
Hopefully someone else like Fuji or Shiraishi swiftly takes it from him.
I really wanna see more High Schoolers that dont suck.
Hara and Taira were so disappointing. They started off so cool.
And I bet Konomi is not gonna use them again and is gonna make them fodder :/
I hope Kimijima is given full screen time and is not a Data player. It would be nice to see him bring out an aura or something.
Im tired of all this Data Tennis for now.
Tezuka, Yukimura, Sanada, Atobe, Shiraishi, Fuji and the other two would be out of: Akutsu, Chitose, Tachibana or Kite.
They were the beast 3rd years. With the 6 I mentioned first being a world above the rest.
Then he kinda specified in Part II now that its kinda like :Tezuka, Yukimura. then its Sanada, Atobe. then its :Shiraishi, Fuji.
I reckon Konomi will keep Shiraishi and Fuji roughly same level.
Game Set Kawamura.
I dont remember Kawamura specifying his his degrees of Hadoukyu.
He had :Two-Handed Hadoukyu, Hadoukyu, Dash Hadoukyu, Jump Hadouykyu(Anime-Only), Final Hadoukyu.
He has used Final Hadoukyu twice now. Remember how he stares at the ball when he serves it, like he might die or something?
Thats to show its Final Hadoukyu.
Like I said again:
I just hope Date and Ban done become fodder, coz they looked BADASS.
Along with Taira, Hara, Mitsuya, Hakamada and the Mutsu Twins I REALLY hope they dont become fodder aswell.
Especially Taira, Hara and Mitsuya since they are younger than High School 3rd Years so they should have been in the nationals same time as when Yukimura and Sanada won in their Freshman year.
I dont care much about Fuwa and Akiba considering they showed NO hope of fighting back.
and I'd love a Its just I'd love to see Date have a match with someone like Sanada or Hiyoshi or Kirihara.
Or a Hara VS Zaizen future captain and old captain.
Or Taira VS Shiraishi would be just the same as Yamato VS Tezuka. I would like that.
No, Kimijima will be much more stronger than Kite, maybe he has some auras of Muga and powerful techniques. If he is a top 10, he is one of the best players, so he has to be amazing techniques. On the other hand, I think that Fuji has to surpass Shiraishi fully, I mean, don't put them at the same level, if Fuji surpasses him, it has to be definitely, remember Fuji has more latent potential than Shiraishi (lol), so his improvement will be more amazing
Other players like Shiraishi could battle for spots with Momo, or a doubles pair with Oishi/Niou (altough I recognize that Oishi Niou is a better pair than Oishi/Kikumaru). After all, all the middle schoolers aim to become first stringers, so they would constantly be battling each other, up to the point when the team is ready and goes to fight other countries (lol I want to know how good are the other country players, specially if Japan faces a team like Saudi arabia like captain tsubasa world youth, with those things in their heads lol)
I think we can continue all of that here, no need to keep it in the spoiler thread...
But then, look at No.s 11 - 20.
They sucked eggs.
The Mutsu Twins couldnt even Find a way to win without Synchro. Meaning that Synchro is STILL the most powerful doubles technique.
Taira and Hara were overpowered even though they began completely walking over Momoshiro/Kenya.
All coz of just 1 technique. They couldnt even do anyhting agains that ONE technqiue.
Fuwa just got stamped on. He got blinded, then put to sleep. THROUGH TENNIS by Yukimura.
Akiba fell for Irie's acting.
Hakamada stands no chance against Tooyama who I think is like Kid Goku from DBZ playing Tennis.
We only have Date and Ban who showed that they could defeat their opponents in Singles matches.
Date and Ban were the only players that were badass.
And Mitsuya who tore apart Yanagi.
Unfortunately Konomi has made 2nd Stringers like Oni, Tokugawa and Yamato stronger than the No.11s - 20.
Considering how Date and Ban completely destroyed Nakagauchi and Miyako who were actually good players, It whould mean the Top10 are stong.

Akutsu will become a top 10, absolutely, we haven't seen yet his skills but since he improved greatly, I won't be surprised if he manages to do it in a short time.
Also, when do u guys think that Tezuka will come back?. Personally, I think that maybe before the world tournament starts or if not in the finals as a replacement
But I dont get Tokugawa, Irie or Oni.
They were stronger than Atobe, Tooyama Echizen. Surely they getting Top10 spots too?
And yeah, as long as Konomi intends to make the MANY players stronger than Kawamura, Kabaji, Oishi etc. challenge them for their places and not leave Kabaji as the No.13 then thats fine.
Coz Konomi has so much room for all these characters to have more Singles matches.
We are still yet to see Kenya, Mukahi, Marui, Jackal, Yagyuu, Zaizen, Hirakoba in Singles matches.
I thought the whole point of continuing the series was for the fans' love of the characters.
And the fact that he watched Echizen miraculously defeat the strongest middle schooler Yukimura at the Nationals with TMnK and he still feels he can defeat Echizen.
Akutsu had better be given a full singles match where he utterly defeats someone.
I dont care who. Middle schooler, Top 10, Top 20, 2nd Stringer anyone. I just wanna see him defeat someone in a full match that would take at least an episode.
It depends if there will be another Foreign expedtion.
Since they just came back from one, I expected the Chapters 1-100 to be all about what happens in the camp.
And perhaps maybe after Chapter 150+ there might be possibilty of facing like South Korea etc.
Echizen is on another league different than Akutsu, he is way better, also , I don't see Akutsu countering tenimuhou, since is the ultimate technique in POT
Some time during in his training at the U-17 camp, Kawamura, similar to how he learned the original Hadokyuu from Tetsu Ishida, had learned the various degrees of Hadokyuu from Gin Ishida. That's what I'm saying.

Their match finished 6-4 last time.
Even if they dont play again, Akutsu saw PoP. So if he still thinks he can defeat Echizen then he must have improved again.
Remember he NEVER practised to reach the level he was. So after practice in USA im sure he will be awesome upon his return.
I think that Kawamura is really hated. I like him, always considereded far better than Momo and even Kaidoh, and someone key in Seigaku team who simply didn't get too many oportunities. His tennis is simple, OK, but sometimes that is an advantage.
I don't know if genius like Fuji or Shiraishi could return Kawa's (or Gin's, or Kintaroh's) super powerful shots and serves. You can have an amazing Hakugei or Bible Tennis, but if your rival gives you an absolutely brutal serve or return ace, what could you do?
