    Your 1st String

    Not much to say here, just list the twenty people you would put on the 1st String. Some elaboration on why you chose those people would be appreciated but isn't strictly necessary.

    Two rules though, only choose from the players that are in the camp at the moment, and keep the singles and doubles numbers the same as we suspect them to be (although feel free to put No. 5 and 6 either seperate or as doubles), in other words...

    Spoiler: Template show





    To kick things off, here's mine:

    No. 1 Ryoga
    No. 2 Tokugawa
    No. 3 Tanegashima
    No. 4 Oni
    No. 5 Byoudouin / No. 6 Duke
    No. 7 Sanada / No. 8 Niou
    No. 9 Shiraishi / No. 10 Kintarou
    No. 11 Ryoma
    No. 12 Chitose / No. 13 Fuji
    No. 14 Yukimura
    No. 15 Akutsu / No. 16 Kawamura
    No. 17 Atobe
    No. 18 Inui / No. 19 Yanagi
    No. 20 Irie

    Not much to say to the singles spots for the most part, they are more or less how I think these guys are ranked at the moment with the exception of Irie who gets to keep his troll spot as No. 20.

    Doubles wise, I wouldn't mind seeing Byoudouin and Duke stay, simply because of their current positions and given the relation they've shown so far, a doubles pair could work quite nicely there.
    Sanada/Niou is basically the replacement for Sanada/Tezuka which I probably don't have to elaborate on. Same goes for Chitose/Fuji, as Chitose is more or less Tezuka's Kansai counterpart. As I had to cut Kintarou's singles spot, I decided to put him into doubles, and Shiraishi is the only possible partner here; they should combine to one of the best LFT pairs though. Akutsu/Kawamura made the list because I could see them ending up as the actual No. 12/13 and have overall good qualities, they just got their positions adjusted.

    I'm actually still unsure about the last pair I'd like to have. I listed Inui and Yanagi for now since I prefer Data Tennis over Synchro (read: GP was another possibility here). I might replace them with Ochi at some point when I can think of the right partner.




    So yeah, if you could decide who to put on the 1st String, what would it look like?

    Re: Your 1st String

    No.1 Tokugawa
    No.2 Tanegashima
    No.3 Fuji
    No.4 Ryoma
    No.5/6 Akutsu/Oni
    No.7/8 Sanada/Niou
    No.9/10 Shiraishi/Kintarou
    No.11 Yukimura
    No.12/13 Gin/Kawamura
    No.14 Atobe
    No.15/16 Oishi/Kikumaru
    No.17 Hiyoshi
    No.18/19 Kaidoh/Momoshiro
    No.20 Chitose


    That would be my list. Except Inui/Yanagi, I would put Momoshiro/Kiadoh, Momo is No.19 and Kaidoh beats Kenya and gets the No.18 spot, and we get a good doubles pair. Irie gives his badge to Chitose and maybe aims for the top 10 and beats somebody after they come back again.

    No.14 Atobe. Gin/Kawamura to place Gin in the No.13 spot due to Kabaji leaving the camp, and we got a power pair. Shiraishi/Kintarou because they know very well each other and would be deadly in doubles, Perfect tennis + Wild tennis. Sanada/Niou like Kaoz said, Niou turns into Tezuka or Yukimura and game over.

    No.4 Ryoma, he beats Ryoga and aims for the top, I don't think Ryoma will be left out the top 5, so it's esential to put him there, the best MS in the team has to definitely get in the top. No.3 Fuji, he beats fodder Duke and shows his true strength, then he gets the No.3 spot. Tanegashima faces Yukimura and wins so Yukimura still stays in No.11 but later he will become top 5, and Tokugawa beats Byodouin and becomes No.1 for some time.

    Re: Your 1st String

    The Shiraishi and Kintaro idea sucks. Its unlikely to have Kintaro pair with anyone.

    Akutsu/Oni is just as unlikely. A jackass like Akutsu playing doubles with someone other than Sengoku or Kawamura is unlikely.

    Curious why Yukimura has actually been slid down to No.14 in Kaoz's list. And how he has ignored the law of Shounen plot power and put Ryoma way back in 11th.

    Re: Your 1st String

    Maybe I didn't make this clear. This isn't necessarily about what you think will happen, but what you would like to have. It's mostly a matter of preference.

    Ryoma and Yukimura are that low on my list because I didn't feel like giving Oni a spot in the 11-20.

    Of course, I want Fuji, Echizen and Sanada to be on top.

    Kintarou could stay in No.14 spot, so

    No.10/9 Atobe, Niou

    No.14 Kintarou

    I don't feel putting Kintarou on doubles lol.

    Fuji came 1st on NPOT popularity poll, so it's naturally he'll recive a huge power up and defeat a top 10 first stringer. He'll finally get screentime.

    No.1 Tokugawa
    No.2 Byodouin
    No.3 Ryoma
    No.4 Ryoga
    No.5 Fuji
    No.6 Shuuji
    No.7 Sanada
    No.8 Yukimura
    No.9 Duke
    No.10 Oni
    No.11 Atobe
    No.12 Shiraishi
    No.13 Niou
    No.14 Kintarou
    No.15 Oomagari
    No.16 Kimijima
    No.17 Tohno
    No.18 Ochi
    No.19 Mouri
    No.20 Irie

    And yes, all genius 10 so far is in my 1st stringer list. They are showing quite an impressive ability right now. It doesn't make sense to me that they won't at least make top 20.
    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.

    Re: Your 1st String

    Fuji has the most BS writing. Fuji is the result of laziness. Oh yeah, stereotypical prodigy that pulls evolution out their ass whenever they're losing. So original. That's supposed to be a trademark of Fuji's character, and yet it applies to EVERY SINGLE PERSON IN THE SERIES. There is nothing original about Fuji, and therefore nothing to be desired.

    I agree with everything said here. Fuji's supposed to be a genius, yet . . . nearly every player in the series is a genius. Even the chapters themselves are Geniuses.

    Every player can be a genius in general. However the title of genius is only given to those who stand out from the rest. Fuji has the actual title of "Genius" while other players are just: a genius player.
