    Konomi made a great job with POT, he showed with detail each of the matches and didn't include these one page kills that make me sick and how he fodderizes matches (Chitose/Tachibana vs. Wassio/Shuzuki or Krauser vs Nakagauchi and Shiraishi/Kirihara vs. Miyako/Matsudaira in anime).
    Dragonball Z > Dragonball.
    There are many films/shows/mangas where sequels can exceed the original. It can be true with most mangas but there are quite a few exceptions lol.

    I agree with PoT. I was intensely hooked. The anime made me pick up tennis 2 years ago. And I dont think Konomi is that much involved in the anime. Considering its now almost a different story from the manga. I reckon its just the anime company screwing around.

    Although if it was the old PoT anime series, we probably would have seen Krauser VS Nakagauchi get its own ep., Shiraishi VS Kirihara take an ep. and a half with Talking for the other half,
    Washio/Suzuki VS Tachibana/Chitose get dragged for like an ep. and Atobe VS Irie take a MINIMUM of 2 and half eps. lol.

    Also, Nationals came out yearly, and had lots of material to deal with.
    It came out Annually? I dont remember since I only finished it in 2010 but you mean the 26 ep.s came out a year after the original series ended?
    Since I wasnt current with the series when I finished it. It had finished for a while before I finished it I think.

    Yeah, the Nationals OVAs weren't immediately after the rest of the series, and they took four years to do anyway.

    This is a very objective thing to say. For all we know, Konomi could pick up the pace with NPoT and make things super interesting. Not saying he will, just saying, NPoT does have the potential to be better than the original PoT.

    At the current time, he's messing up, still, I'm looking foward to the Japan team playing against the world, so maybe I can change my opinion depending on how good it is that part.

    But I think the U-17 Camp arc could be amazing. All our favourite characters are here but Konomi has fodderized most of them. If he gave each of them a bit of screen time in many many Team Shuffles it would feel like PoT but better coz of the new storyline. And add some Player Shuffles here and there. This couldve been amazing.
    The whole U-17 Camp concept was really interesting with the Court System with 16 Courts and the No.s 20-11 and the Top 10.
    Shame Konomi trolled us and blew it on a whim.

    He could have donde more things like a shuffle match with Court 6 vs Court 1, it would have been really interesting to see Yukimura vs Tokugawa. Or at least give more screentime to the losers when they returned to the camp showing how they defeated 2nd court and all, but Konomi really just focused on speeding through the camp.

    Yes, that's him. I was wondering whether they'd include him, given that he wasn't cut from the HSer image in the opening.

    So where did this Migihashi character even come from? I don't ever remember seeing him in the manga.

    The anime have changed things. Migihashi must be stronger. He is drawn against the Top 10.
    Meaning he likely from 1st Court since 2nd Court were kicked out and mathematically probably didnt play against the Top 20.

    Old 3rd Court 8 players, 1st Court 7 players, Yukimura and Oni leaving only 3 spots against the Top 20. old 3rd Court, Irie, Yukimura and 2 lower fodders were against 11-19, with Yamato and 8 from 1st Court leaving one space left. Im just guessing Migihashi is from the 1st Court in the manga. Didnt think he would suck.
    Since he was something like a Right Rounder.

    The image of the old 3rd + Oni, Migihashi, Irie and Tokugawa made me pleased since it went from just Tokugawa, Oni and Irie to everybody else in the original photo which I thought was cliche of anime, but when I saw Migihashi I totally thought we were gonna see him look 'kinda' cool. Not instantaneous fodder.
    Since although Tanegashima was added, they didnt have to include Mighashi as he has no releveance to the storyline at all.

    He never made an appearance, but was mentioned in the Pair Puris and was shown here on the far right.
