    Nah I think its still awesome. Everybody keeps begging Users to not use it.
    Shiraishi begged Kirihara not to, Inui begged Kaido not to, chances are if left alone for a WHOLE match it would prove to be amazing, Im disappointed Konomi has kind of removed it from the series. It was the only proper excuse to have bloodbaths in a tennis manga.
    Im hoping Kaido and Kirihara use Devil Mode in the future.

    Yanagi only shut it down coz he knows Kirihara's play style inside out like how Inui knows Kaido' play style inside out.

    Hold on, Airgrimes. We get to see Tohno try to kill people in the next doubles match.

    Sai translates Tohno's line as this:

    Tohno: I just want to make sure there’s plenty of blood for my bloodbath (small: Heh)

    Tohno could have a more advanced form of Devil Mode or something.

    Devil Mode was just more proof that this is a fighting manga in disguise. Come on, a guy that turns into a demon during a tennis match? What else can he do, the Shun Goku Satsu? It's just incredibly dangerous and unrealistic that someone could become so upset that their blood circulates at a rate so fast that their entire body turns red while their hair turns white. Angel Mode is even more ridiculous. We have enough 'demons' in NPoT anyway; Akutsu (who's like the 'Akuma' of the series), Oni, Izoh, and Tohno.

    Speaking of 'bloody battles,' why do we even have those again? In the Fudomine match, Echizen's eyelid was cut and was bleeding so much that they had to stop the match to patch it up, leaving Echizen with a 20-minute time limit to play the match. Now, we have guys bleeding all over their entire bodies and the referee watches the fatalities like it's Mortal Kombat.

    Yeah I remember something insane like that, but I try to ignore the insanity in this manga the best that I can, and treat it like a standard Sports Anime but it never works hahaha.
    Its still no excuse for a want to see blood like Devil Mode creates. This just means Tohno likes blood. Which is weird.
    So yeah, Im hoping Tohno has some kind of Mode. Im disappointed that the only state weve seen from High Schoolers is Synchro.

    If krauser goes into devil mode the world will never be the same. But as far as states it looks like byoudouin can do something at least

    Krauser isnt all that great. His stamina was horribly exposed by Nakagauchi and his reliance on Hopping Ball and a further extent, Southern Cross is just too much. Devil Mode will still see him get exposed by several players above him.

    Krauser is one of the worst players in the series from a reader's (my) viewpoint. I refuse to tell me that he has enough power and control to pin the opponent to the gate. The way he's shown beating up Kirihara and Richard in his matches, it's just ridiculous even for PoT. I mean, there's no way he could be that strong unless he actually went over the net and beat them into the fence. With his power, there's no way Kirihara could've beaten him. He really should've been one of the best middle school players in the series. He and Byoudoiun may as well have the same power.

    I'm fully aware of krauser's flaws as a player, and we may have seen his last match in the series, but I guess I'm thinking pre-shin where he redefined(briefly) what a psycho could be and dreaming of how superior his devil mode could be to akaya's devil mode. But Nakagauchi exposed to us his reliance on his special techniques and from this point on if we see anything it will probably be akaya's angel mode

    Well you do have Gin and his 20th+ Shiki Hadoukyu's. Now that's when you are talking insane. Throwing an opponent over 20 meters away into the stadium seating? Insane hack, but Kawamura survived O.o

    Don't forget that Ban takes a 25th Level Hadokyuu and isn't even fazed.

    A 108th Level Hadokyuu will break a steel pole, so...Then again, Byoudouin's serve breaks a wall.

    Re: Shin Prince of Tennis Chapter 71 and 72 Discussion/Predicitions

    I personally dont like Krauser or Gin lol.
    Im still hoping Krauser leaves the Japan team camp and goes back to his nation and we see him as like No.19 of the Austria or Canada Juniors or something.

    (Simply a weaker Western nation where you will still find people with German surnames.
    Most likely Switzerland or Canada, where both nations have people with German names and French names. Liliadent is an uncommon French name.)

    I just realized in Team Tennis, each match is only best of 1 set, so why these guys are playing 3 sets confuses me. In the Davis Cup They all play best of a set.
    So im hoping this idea ends.
    Also hoping Ochi reveals some powerful technique coz atm I dont see what separates him from being an Ootori with good technique. He is easily defeatable from the looks of things lol. Im hoping he has something else that makes him awesome.
    Since Mouri could have just paired with Ootori and get this kind of outcome.

    Krauser is just weak. However, he has the potential to become a very strong player, as Nakagauchi said: "this guy will be strong for sure"

    You can't compare Byodouin's power and Krauser's power. Byodouin has probably the strongest shots of the All Japan team, but Echizen might develop one unreturnable shot someday.

    I don't know what you think you know, but Davis Cup matches are best of five sets. Ochi will be at least a competent singles player, whereas Ootori was not at all competent as a singles player. If you could return Neo Scud, Ootori was fodder.

    For example, last week, Isner beat Federer 4-6, 6-3, 7-6 (4), 6-2 in a Davis Cup match: http://sports.yahoo.com/tennis/news?slug=ycn-10952934

    Fish overcame Wawrinka in five sets during the same Davis Cup match.

    Ochi probably has some technique he hasn't show. If you can return his serve, you can beat him, but his mental is very very strong, so he should at least have something else.

    Screw the BS I said there. my bad. I guess just standard junior team tennis is best of a set then.
    Actually, Neo Scud wasnt returned in the series. Im doubting Shishido even returned it once in the tie-break considering Ootori won 9-7.

    Nobody could return it lol, making Ootori not fodder. Ochi Singles wise must be strong since he and Mouri arent Synchro users but are obviously a better pair than Mutsu/Mutsu. Ochi must have individual abilities that will be revealed since like I said, he is no better than Ootori if all he has is an amazing serve.
    If he is an Ootori with good technique, considering he was dumbfounded by ZSS like most players in the series, he is no better than lets see... 3rd Court level Im saying from

    Did Ochi's serve have a name btw? or is just his standard serve that is amazing. Also, if he had a special smash, it would be INTENSE.

    Also, just wanted to throw the prediction out there that Irie might have been the initial No.4. Its unlikely but Im just throwing it out there lol.
