What do you think are the team line-ups one year from the series start and one year after the series.
I.e. since Prince of Tennis began in 1999 (IIRC) then the year the series events occurs is 1999 (If stated to be other year please say so).
In your opinion what would the teams line-up look in 1998 and 2000? (If you want to especulate about other years like.. Dunno 1996 or 1997 Seigaku, please say so too lol)
I have 2 questions though.. We all know that in 1998 Echizen hadn't joined Seigaku but were Kaidoh and Momoshiro part of Seigaku regulars? (Being first graders)
The other slots should be filled by random 3rd graders or a star 1st grader.. This year Seigaku would have a very lame team IMO..
The power-houses would be Kaidoh, Momoshiro and Ryoma.. And out of those 3 its nothing compared to Seigaku's 1999 powerhouses Tezuka, Fuji and Ryoma which most of the times won their respective games..
Re: What do you think are the team line-ups one year from the series start and one year after the series.
Well according to a databook,
Tezuka, Fuji, Inui, Oishi and Kikumaru were Regulars in their 2nd Year.
There was a captain at that time too.
Also, Yamato is a 2 Years older than Tezuka, Fuji etc. He was the captain of Seigaku in his 3rd Year when Taira was the captain of Shitenhouji in his 3rd Year.
Momoshiro and Kaidoh became regulars after the Nationals. Im not sure when Kawamura became a regular though.
I dont think Horio will be a regular next year. He sucked eggs. Some other 2nd year like Hayashi will be a regular instead of him.
Their team shouldnt suck too much.
Fudomine will have their whole team besides Tachibana so they will DEFINETELY reach Nationals lol.
Rikkai likely raised some decent 2nd years and will have Kirihara (3rd year), Urayama (2nd year) and random others in Kirihara's year.
Shitenhouji will have Zaizen and Tooyama, Hyotei will have Hiyoshi, Ootori and Kabaji.
So its still an open tournament next year.
As for Rikkai last year, we have Yukimura, Sanada, Yanagi, Yagyuu, Niou iirc and Mouri. No wonder they still kicked ass.
Shitenhouji last year we have Shiraishi, Kenya, Idiot pair, Koishikawa and Gin I believe.
Their captain last year was Initally Hara Tetsuya, however after taking them to victory in the Kansai Regionals, he quit the club and didnt go Nationals.
Hyotei last year we had Atobe, Yushi, Akutagawa, Shishido and Mukahi. According to the OVA anime ep. of the manga short that had the Hyotei guys as Freshman which at the end had the 5 of them as regulars since their freshman year.
Yamabuki last year had Sengoku, Minami and Higashikata and possibly Akutsu whenever he felt like it.
Shishigaku had Tachibana, Chitose and somebody called ''Dai-Senpai'' in the year above them.
Makinofuji last year....MUST HAVE HAD SOME FUCKING AWESOME TEAM SINCE THEY REACHED LAST YEAR'S FINALS DEFEATING SHISHIGAKU ALONG THE WAY BUT IN THE CURRENT YEAR HAD FODDER AS THEIR ACES. BUT FOR SOME REASON WE ARE YET TO SEE A 1ST YEAR HSER IN THE 2ND STRINGERS...........
