  1. [Chapter] Re: Shin Prince of Tennis Chapter 134 Discussion/Predictions

    That would be fine, but the problem lies in the execution. It's better to show, not tell, and the issue here is that Konomi isn't too good at showing that Obandu is challenge for Ryoma; all he did...

    He's gonna show up, no doubt. I just wouldn't expect any playtime. I'm almost confident Kintaro's gonna take his spot.

    Oni's character is done. The next time we'll see him will be with a newly-trained invincible Kintaro under his belt. Calling it now.
  12. Poll: [Chapter] Re: Shin Prince of Tennis Chapter 126, 127, 128 and 129 Discussion/Predictions

    Someone mentioned that Konomi might be trying to "finish off" with developing all the characters, and I definitely agree. Most, if not, all of the middle schoolers have no real reason to develop...

    Ryoma was never the main character. That is to say, he was supposed to be, but all throughout PoT he barely develops, and when he does it feels seriously forced by Konomi (Oh, he just suddenly loses...
  14. Poll: [Chapter] Re: Shin Prince of Tennis Chapter 126, 127, 128 and 129 Discussion/Predictions

    For good reason, it was the best match. Then was the Atsukyo/Kimijima one, then Toku vs. Byo.
  15. Poll: [Chapter] Re: Shin Prince of Tennis Chapter 126, 127, 128 and 129 Discussion/Predictions

    Doubt it. Considering those were mostly one-liners it makes sense. But like I said, we already had an arc in America where English speech was only used once or twice.
  16. Poll: [Chapter] Re: Shin Prince of Tennis Chapter 126, 127, 128 and 129 Discussion/Predictions

    Why do people think Konomi would have to do the dialogue in English if we get a USA arc? Everyone spoke "Japanese" in the Nanjiroh side-story, remember.

    I feel that had Tokugawa not been blindsided by Byodoin's "Destroyer" the night before, he would've won the match. However, he would have died.

    [Discussion] Re: Poor match point tactics/behavior

    Konomi doesn't know how the game is played, as we've seen countless times. He assumes the readers don't neither.
  25. [Theory] Re: Which characters have reached their potential?

    Outsiders, other clubs, etc. I'm tired of the U-17 setting.
  26. [Theory] Re: Which characters have reached their potential?

    I honestly wouldn't mind if Konomi was putting the entire 1st String on a bus with this arc and focused on the 2nd Stringers in the next. Something like having the 2nd Stringers compete with...
  27. [Chapter] Re: Shin Prince of Tennis Chapter 125 Discussion/Predictions

    In Tokugawa's defense, these are guys trying to become professional tennis players. Byodoin is Tokugawa's current biggest block to getting his career off the ground. Being the number one player is...
  28. [Chapter] Re: Shin Prince of Tennis Chapter 125 Discussion/Predictions

    If Tokugawa gets PoP I'm done with this manga. He has no reason to enjoy himself. He never wanted to beat Byodoin because he was a worthy opponent. He wanted to beat Byodoin because Byodoin...
  29. [Chapter] Re: Shin Prince of Tennis Chapter 125 Discussion/Predictions

    I think Byodoin's gonna keep his spot, but the issue with that is, who in the world could possibly be stronger than Byodoin? I'd understand if he was the greatest player in Japan. But he's already...
  30. [Chapter] Re: Shin Prince of Tennis Chapter 125 Discussion/Predictions

    I'd sure hope not. That would be Ryoma's third time training with someone in a row in this series. Some exposition via Mifune, I'd be fine with. But more training, no.

  32. [Chapter] Re: Shin Prince of Tennis Chapter 125 Discussion/Predictions

    That supports my point even more. If there's one thing I give Konomi credit for, it's that he kinda told us that none of the middle schoolers, even with their training, was ready. When? Think about...
  33. [Chapter] Re: Shin Prince of Tennis Chapter 125 Discussion/Predictions

    I disagree. It's clear that the middle schoolers aren't really up to par with the G10 if this arc is anything to go by. Atobe and Nio barely one their games (Nio put his career on the line), Bunta...
  34. [Chapter] Re: Shin Prince of Tennis Chapter 125 Discussion/Predictions

  35. [Chapter] Re: Shin Prince of Tennis Chapter 125 Discussion/Predictions

    Byodoin did the same thing with Tokugawa.
  36. [Chapter] Re: Shin Prince of Tennis Chapter 125 Discussion/Predictions

    All the middle schoolers were so amazed by Tokugawa's black holes that they jumped inside of them.
  37. [Chapter] Re: Shin Prince of Tennis Chapter 125 Discussion/Predictions

    He needs to end NPoT because the fantasy of the other one is clearly spilling over and he can't handle both.
  38. [Chapter] Re: Shin Prince of Tennis Chapter 125 Discussion/Predictions

    He literally gets away with murder because his cast of pretty boys gives him an advantage in the polls. If it weren't for that I'm pretty sure NPoT would be one of the worst ranked comics in the...
  39. [Chapter] Re: Shin Prince of Tennis Chapter 125 Discussion/Predictions

    Disappointing chapter. Would've been better off seeing Ryoma play a real match against Byodoin. Since the beginning of the manga we've seen Ryoma go from 5-ball to 10-ball to Glowing shot to Samurai...

    Byodoin's one of the best players in the world. He's traveled around the globe and has ended many careers. He's definitely pro material. And is Bundro even still the number one player in the world?
