    Re: Character Discussion

    I've had enough of Sanada. I would be completely satisfied if a TnK serve hit his face. Anyway, anyone reckon these matches for 1st String will only finish at the end of next year?

    Re: Character Discussion

    The 1st string matches are going to take a looong time until they finish. They're still at the first match and 3 months have passed, maybe Konomi finishes it on June or July, so maybe at the end of 2013 or in 2014 lol

    Perfectly said. Dont expect it to end this year if one match takes 3months.

    I like Atobe, Momo, and Kintaro. They have more personality. Tezuka bores me hell even Echizen. Though he has given Echizen more personality in SPoT.

    Ryoma is the main character. He will ALWAYS get more personality and his screen time will be never ending.
    To be fair, Kintaro is 30th in the Popularity poll and Momoshiro didnt even make Top 30 this time.
    I was wondering if you liked popular characters since you didnt like Tezuka but the ones you like the kids in Japan dont really like right now.

    Exactly kids. They like the girly looking guys. Sorry dude I'm in my late 20's and just don't see the appeal of boring or feminine looking characters.

    Re: PoT1: Seigaku vs. Rikkai (Kanto Finals) - Was It A Mistake?

    This kid is 27.

    The tier thread is opinions from other posters. This manga is illogical but I feel as if every now and then Konomi brings in things (tangibles) from real life that can explain how one player can beat another.


    Come on son Inui plays M after he went against Yanagi. Sorry but as a former athlete its tiring to play a hard fought game against someone almost on your level then a fresh leg who is also almost at your level comes in to play. I know that's more real life but that's another thing about Konomi I don't like. He randomly picks who wins and lose. Kabaji and Taka-San lost the match but because they saved those two dude they get their pins. There are a lot of plot holes in the universe.

    I hate the eyes shut design of any anime but Fuji has that killer look in his eyes when he opens that makes it seem like a serial killer type. You know its always the quiet ones. Yuki is actually in my top 10 favorite list because he doesn't need "super moves" and his design makes him unassuming but I can't get over the hair and headband. Maybe if he they had given him a deeper or more aggressive tone in his voice.

    This is another reason why I hate Tezuka. Konomi has a hard on for him. He keeps getting better and better just randomly. In Ryoma's case he's the main protagonist so you can suspend your belief but Tezuka just getting stronger is weird unless he is setting it him up to be Ryoma's rival. Just bad writing on Konomi's part.
    Konomi should learn from the people writing the anime. Little things they do like changing from Kirihari encounter with Tokugawa in the manga to Ryoma sets up that rivalry so much better.

    I see.
    But the whole feminine character turning out to be amongst the strongest isnt a new thing haha.

    Do you dislike Fuji Shusuke?
    It brings a huge element of surprise.

    Other examples are Adult Mammon and Adult Skull from Reborn! or the many Homosexuals and feminine characters from One Piece (Which is right now officially THE MOST popular manga according to official polls from Japan).

    Your thing about Tezuka not having personality I can agree with. We've never had a match actually from HIS perspective like we do with other characters before until against Yamato.

    But you like Tooyama Kintaro? Tbh, I just dont feel him as a character. His character is the standard Shounen Jump main character by having the main character of a Jump manga traits:

    Far stronger physically than his physical appearance, much faster and tons of stamina than you would expect, gets excited over meat, Extremely stupid.

    Problem is he aint the main character and it doesnt work so well for side characters.

    Tezuka was for the most part treated as the ace character. Eventually he was given a weakness to add tension but beyond that small minor flaw he is pretty much perfect.

    Ryoma Echizen: Pretty much a Mary Sue until the end of the original series but then became a Mary Sue again in the NPoT manga but was a pretty decent character in the NPoT anime;

    Tezuka: SUPER MARY SUE. Absolutely perfect as a character. Even his injury makes him flawless. WUT? Even his game with Yamato didn't help, it made him a Hyper Mary Zuka.

    Fuji: THE VIRGIN MARY SUE. FUJI IS TENNIS CHRIST.

    Kintaro: One-dimensional kid.

    Except Mitsuya exerted practically no energy when destroying, slumping, wiping, crushing (choose your own word here haha) Yanagi. Yanagi was NOT at Mitsuya's level. Mitsuya easily defeated him and was the one who challenged Inui meaning he was fine since he offered the challenge.

    Inui beat him while Yanagi stood no chance. its Inui > Yanagi right now and there is yet to be an argument that goes against that.

    Thats fine though. Kawamura getting the badge at least once is acceptable as a Seigaku member. I doubt he will keep a title as 12th best U-17 member considering I dont think he even intends to join Yamato, Kikumaru, Inui and Fuji next year on the Seigaku High School Team.

    It does suck how they won, but Konomi's intention of showing Character detail was successful in that specific match (So far he has been appalling in SPoT)
    it was made clear that Date was awesomeness by crushing both Kabaji and Kawamura. and that Ban can handleKabaji and Kawamura by himself as neither Date nor Ban appeared to be serious during the match.
    Then time for Konomi's plot power and he showed us Kawamura is the same as Gin as he can now hit 108 degrees of Hadoukyuu.

    To be fair your on your own here.
    All true Anime fans from the West of the world recognize Brock from Pokemon iimmediately lol.
    And although I dont like BLEACH, Ichimaru Gin is loved by fans. A lot of people love that look im afraid.

    I used to think he was awesome until SPoT started since all he has done was get slapped by Tezuka and cry about it.

    I understand. But I think the Female Seiyuu from Fuji and Yuki is probably better off coz it works better for the surprise.
    In real life, if somebody challenged you to a tennis match for money and they appeared to be girly you probably wouldnt hesitate to play them lol.
    Yukimura is my fav. character btw and I like him for the one of the reasons you gave as he doesnt use super moves. Instead he has a godly ability haha.

    Yes.
    Tezuka is the plot rival and that is essentially the end of it.
    Konomi is forever going to keep him above Ryoma for a while.

    Seeing as Konomi has yet to show us two players play a full match and then have a rematch and have the match shown fully in this series before, I think its inevitable that Tezuka is being kept stronger with a nice bit of plot power (Which I like lol) to be amongst the final villains.
    Although we have to remember Konomi ended PoT with Tezuka being below Sanada and he thought he had finished the series. So I dont think its down to bad writing.

    Wait what??
    I was agreeing with you until this blasphemy.
    Despite most of your post belonging in the Character Discussion, I replied but that last statement is insane.

    Besides the Nationals OVAs and 7 out 8 Another STory OVA's (The Tachibana/Chitose one)
    The anime has been fairly appalling storyline wise.

    They RUINED Rikkai VS Seigaku besides Inui VS Yanagi and Momoshiro/Kaidoh VS Marui/Jackal.

    They missed out the switch from Niou/Yagyuu VS Oishi/Kikumaru, Sanada VS Ryoma was RUINED. The America Good Will Games arc was a disaster with Kevin Smith being the ONLY positive from those 20 eps.

    The New PoT Anime skipped Nakagauchi VS Krauser, Shiraishi/Kirihara VS Miyako/Matsudaira and had the cheek TO FOCUS on the Mountain Climbing.

    The Anime guys are criminals to the storyline.
    Sorry about this rant.

    But yeah this is the wrong thread bro.

    With all the screentime he got, he only managed 30th on the poll. He doesnt really belong like many others do.

    Try having a spotlight drop on you and win the match. If Kabaji and Kawamura haven't save those two from falling spotlight, those two will have to most likely forfeit the match. Unless Kabaji and Kawamura got disqualified for hurting their opponents, but Niou doesn't get to be worrying about that when he knock Kikumaru out, or Krauser just at anytime. I doubt it's a problem.

    Or if you think the 1st stringer will be fine after taking a falling spotlight, then I can agree it might be a plot hole.
    Most of the thing I post is probably assumption if it's not a fact that I support using some evidence from the manga.

    If you knows you're on my ignore list and you quote my post, there's high chance I would ignore you. Or answer you and not look at your response.

    honestly, it doesnt mean they should deserve to win No.s 12 and 13 though lol. Im in the hope Kawamura gets defeated really soon.

    Matsudaira Chikahiko is a crap version of Hakamada.
    Observe: His main technique is something he cant even rely on to win a match but effective nonetheless.
    Flower:

    While Hakamada just does it better, more effective to the point he can be a one-trick-pony and still kick the ass of the majority of the characters.

    Re: Character Discussion

    Even Konomi knows his players are rehashes or nerfs of one another. Why do you think Izo was the one to play Chikahiko?

    Because they both use the same kind of technique; a shot with a serious twist on it.
