    I think tennis causing yips is already pretty far out there, and by the time Atobe Kingdom comes around I don't think Konomi's even pretending this stuff is supposed to make sense.

    They're all out there by the post-Yamabuki era. Everything. But, even then Konomi would at least explain thing in typical BS Shonen fashion. However, nowadays we get virtually nothing to back up anything, and that's pretty inconsistent. He shouldn't just assume, "Oh, well the readers are used to me doing all kinds of fuckry now, so now I can do whatever I want and not have to talk about it." That's just tacky to the highest degree. But, maybe he'll explain everything in the tankobon, because I doubt his editor stopped giving fucks about him doing stuff like that.

    Brandnewkid, what are you looking for here? It's a freaking superpowered tennis manga. How much sense do you want it to make? You act as if everything has to make sense. Perhaps it should, but that's not how Konomi's writing it. Accept it or not, it's up to you, but what kind of explanation do you want for placing an aura on a ball and having it cause a shockwave on impact, unless you magically swat it back like Ryoga did?

    Consistency. Am I asking for too much? I don't mind auras. It's a manga, and Konomi's always been one for artistic representation. But can he at least give us what he gave before? Tell us what kind of spin is on the ball, what's really happening, how it's done, etc. I just don't like how he only does it for some moves that are really one-shot techniques (Ochi's serve got so much infodump) and not others, which are actually crucial to the plot (the multiplying ball thing). Am I asking for too much? Am I really asking for too much? Just let me know, and I'll back off for being crazy.

    If we can accept that Atobe Kingdom is done by having your eyes evolve into x-ray vision then I think it's fine to buy off X-ball as the ball magically multiplying itself perhaps through some kind of lost nijitsu (they do have marital arts themed moves, so why not nijitsus?).

    Atobe Kingdom is not X-Ray vision. It's insight but artistically represented more extremely, since the move is literally Atobe paying close attention to the opponent's muscles.

    Muga sped the car towards the cliff, Rai drove it off, Atobe Kingdom blew it up when it hit the ground.

    Given this is the best explanation anybody can come up with, I rest my case.

    Um no that's World of Ice. He specifically says the Atobe Kingdom upgrade allows him to see people's joints so he can see blind spots that cannot be overcome with flexibility, and it was countered (sort of) by dislocating your joints to reach further than you normally could have.

    Not even gonna retort to this because you clearly have no clue what you're talking about.

    Don't mind me guys, I'm the crazy one.

    It isn't often I will say this, and it may be the last time I say this, but Phantron is right. If Atobe were just looking at muscles, Irie would not have specifically stated "skeleton." Anybody who knows anything about human biology would know, skeletons and muscles are exclusive.

    Couldn't it be "Pirates of the American seas"? and he just says "Pirates of the American" as a reference to Pirates of the Caribbean?

    And about the "Konomi is a lazy bastard that doesn't explain techs anymore and only writes 2 small chapters a month"... I agree with that, I loved almost every little thing in PoT, SPoT feels different. I'm still gonna keep reading/watching it though

    I agree that Atobe Kingdom allows Atobe to see the opponent skeleton.

    SPoT do feels different than PoT. But I think Konomi have been doing G10 match right so far. All 3 of them have been very entertaining. Let's hope he keep this up.

    Oh, And Atobe vs Irie is one of better PoT match, even including the 1st series match.
    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.

    Ken, there have actually been four G10 matches. Don't forget about Duke OHKOing Gin. Kintarou vs Oni hasn't gone very far. Akutsu vs Ryoga isn't an official match, but it's about as far along as Kintarou vs Oni.

    It's pretty obvious that Konomi is putting way less detail in his matches in NPOT. He certainly doesn't seem like he's running out of ideas, so I guess it must be something else.
