    Things that relate you with PoT.

    As the tilte says, just name a few things that you have in common with the characters or anything in PoT! For example:

    - I was born on November the 28th just like Kikumaru (my favourite character). If PoT is placed in 2008 like the fudomine page says, then we were both born in 1993.

    - When I was younger I used to play tennis with the same model as Fuji: Prince EXO3 IIRC.

    - I play handball (as a goalkeeper), and in the best match I've ever had I was screaming " I'm on my rhythm!" like a maniac (I watched the Kamio vs Kaidoh episode the night before my match). We played 6 vs 7 half of the match, and it was a tie in the end (BTW, I got booked in the last 6 seconds because I hit someone unintentionally when the other team had a counter attack). Since that day I warm up listening to rock music like Kamio does whenever I do sports.

    - I'm a jerk like Atobe (just kidding ).

    And some other stuff I can't remember at this moment.

    Now I wanna read yours!

    Post Re: Things that relate you with PoT.

    Well... Before I'd even seen Yukimura at all, from like age young I already wore jackets on my shoulders at school most of the time.
    We wear uniform in all schools in England. So I wore my School Blazer on my shoulders.
    This annoyed some seniors. They thought I thought I was a leader. They weren't wrong.
    Had run-ins and disputes with Seniors a lot.

    Like how Byoudouin told the MSers to "Quiet the f*** down" is exactly how I would speak to the MSers if I was in his situation. Completely related to it.

    I have the same arrogant approach as all HSers do in Sport when somebody is much younger.
    But if they prove themselves I acknowledge them like how Momo acknowledged Ryoma quickly.

    If we go by age like Hardy did, I would be in the same grade currently as Ryoma, Kintaro, Dan etc.

    I have an attitude like Chitose since I participated in team events only on a whim for most sports.
    If the opposition sucks, I play with my non-dominant hand always like Ryoma and Tezuka until they earn the right to play against me properly.

    The hell, you do this?

    I play softly until my opponent is serious and is finally taking things seriously, like hitting fast, accurate shots, if I see he's better than me, I just go all out from the start. Competition in tennis isn't like this, I just go serious and all out every match, even if he's a much worse player, I don't have pity, because no matter what, just go and win. Also enjoy.

    Hell yeah I do that.
    For me, there is no training like a real match. So to strengthen my left-handed tennis skills I play with my left hand first in a proper unofficial match.
    Only for Official matches I use my right hand from the start.

    Re: Things that relate you with PoT.

    I understand the appeal that characters have towards people like Ryoma and Atobe who have lived overseas. Living overseas is one of the best things in life I believe, as you get to learn from a completely different culture's perspective while learning more about yourself that you wouldn't have otherwise.

    Also, come sometime next year I will understand this feeling, as I plan on studying abroad in Italy for a while. Though, I guess I'd be more like Akutsu, a city kid who studied abroad for a time rather than Ryoma or Atobe who actually lived in another country for years. It's still good either way.

    The funniest thing altough I never did this in an official match is to fake you're going to smash the ball when you have a chance ball and just make the movement of the smash and hit a drop shot instead

    Wait, but not like Atsushi right? That would be sick.

    I'd seen someone do that when I was in juniors some years ago.
    Turns out, he watched PoT too when I asked.

    He kept doing F & D and even saying it. It sounds rather different in an English accent.

    Re: Things that relate you with PoT.

    1. I've been told I look like Shiraishi
    2. Personality like a blend of Shiraishi, Tachibana and Sanada
    3. I'm a Taurus like Sanada
    4. My physical build is in between Sanada and Gin (large frame).
    5. My racquet is a Babolat pure drive like Sanada
    6. My style is a physically strong all rounder like Sanada
    7. I've worn jackets like Yukimura (not to look cool, but because it airs out the armpits)
    8. I'm left handed like everyone in PoT

    Here's something fun. I found my old videos from years ago of me doing PoT moves:

    "Swift Like The Wind"

    "Tsubame Gaeshi"

    I actually don't sweat that much. It's just that when I do, I try to get dry.

    I'm around 1.85 meters (probably more) but I don't think I look like anyone in the series. Every time I practice sports, I have my sleeves rolled up like Momo's, and if I'm wearing a jacket, I always use it unzipped (like him and Chotoraou) if that counts as something ^^ .
