    His coach deserved it, I would have done the same actually.

    The old man thing... I don´t agree, but that was his team philosophy, it´s highly pribable that their coach instructed them to act like that.

    Akutsu always kind? As a kid he beat the crap out of anyone, at the prefecturals he almost killed some Fudomine players (and punched Arai, threw stones to Echizen, and destroyed a ¨friend of his in Ginka¨´s face).

    Then we only saw him cheering for Taka (his only friend), and Echizen (just because he´s the one that beat him), and being good with Dan (I don´t know really why, he loves his fanboys apparently).

    Yeah, he has been always a great guy, and he has a great heart (he completely showed it along both series).

    Pretty sure that Akutsu rescued Akaya from bullies once... I can't think of a manga or anime reference though.

    It's not an OVA.
    It's in a DVD Pair Puri done by the anime company that did the Nationals.

    There's "character development". All the bad things you mention him is toward his initial appearance at the beginning of 1st series. All him "being nice" is the end of 1st series AND 2nd series.

    It shows he's getting better. He keep some of his old personality, yes. But if Konomi change that, it'll be a different character. And I think the facts that Akutsu gradually shown to get better bits by bits is a lot better how Kite is shown. I wish Kite would have gone though with the betrayal. But of course he wouldn't, since MS is the "main characters" now. And main characters will be nice, or at least nicer.
    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.

    @Hardy I agree with Ken that it's hard to say Akutsu is significantly more of a jerk than Kite. Something that Konomi recognizes as he chose them to be in Pair Puri 7 8 with the title being "Dark".

    I'll have to agree with Hardy on this one, boys.

    Kite is a jerk, but Akutsu is an asshole. I think Kite tries too hard to be what Akutsu naturally is. Kite does not in every encounter with another person, react with some sort of slur. Akutsu does. He is ALWAYS getting into some fight, whereas Kite is able to keep his cool and pick and choose which battles he participates in. Akutsu doesn't think. He acts and reacts. With anger. That's a major difference as far as personality is concerned.

    In a way, Akutsu does pick his batttes. Up until this point, with the possible and very likely exception of Oni, every person Akutsu's gotten fresh with he was capable of beating. Remember, being invincible was the way he was brought up. He's able to act the way he does because he knows he can put the other person in their place, and he's been doing it since he was what, 10-years-old?

    And how do we know he can't beat Ohmagari? This was post-training, after all. And besides, by default all the middle schoolers are going to be stronger than the high schoolers, otherwise they wouldn't have been admitted into the U-17 in the first place. I think you're forgetting that it was stated that it was only this year that the middle schoolers were invited, because they were so damn good.

    I call that hot-head. A hot-head person, to me, doesn't necessary means jerk. I know some friends who are rather quick to pick fight with other people, but I'll call them a nice person.

    @Hardy, they'll probably fight. And I predict that Akutsu is going to win that match.

    Re: Shin Prince of Tennis Chapter 90 Discussion/Predictions

    I don't think Akutsu did that to Ohmagari whether or not he thinks he can beat them.
    It's coz he was ordering around. In fact, Shin Prince of Tennis we have seen a new Akutsu.

    Oni started shit with Akutsu by barging him, Akutsu only stood up for himself by retaliating rudely.
    Ohmagari started shit with Akutsu by ordering him around, Akutsu only retaliated angrily.
    Akutsu hasn't really started fights. Ohmagari and Oni started the fights really.

    So both Kite and Akutsu start fights. Kite however, uses his head much more, but is still a violent jerk.
    Here's Kite being a little provoked, .

    In fact, Kite picked a fight sort of with Tohno by deflecting his Execution Method 13 at Mouri.
    I think Kite is just as much of a jerk, as the rest of Higa even state how he can be ruthless and always has been.
    Akutsu changed as somebody who used to be aggressive to everybody but is kind of a nice dude.

    Konomi even went and softened him by having him chill with Dan Taichi.

    And excepting the good luck charm lol.

    I'm just not so sure it's clear cut that Akutsu is the biggest asshole anymore.

    Kaidoh is a hot-head, and he's not a jerk like Akutsu.

    Apparently he didnt'beat him. The other part of your post was completely irrelevant

    I can agree that he has been "softened", but I still don't think that he's rational enough to play doubles. I don't deny that Kite is also a jerk, but he knows how to control himself.

    It depends on the partner as well. You can't seriously tell me that Devil Akaya is rational for example, but since Yanagi controlled him, he was able to play doubles just fine.
