Kin-Chan probably is among Konomi Sensei's Favorite characters.
Kin-Chan & Sanada keeps getting upgrades & Screentime although They're not that popular among fans. While popular characters like Fuji , Kirihara are being omitted.
Sanada is a parallel for Atobe and Tezuka, the three of them are usually pretty equal, Tezuka unlocked the final muga door, Atobe created atobe kingdom, and Sanada got black aura
Kirihara was able to use his devil mode without losing his mind, that's a good upgrade
Fuji was shown losing to PoP Tezuka, that means he's going to now make a comeback with new counters and/or badass upgrades to his old counters, when Fuji loses he creates new moves that make him surpass whoever beat him before, so whatever he comes up with will be something that can possibly defeat PoP Tezuka

Atobe, Sanada, and Tezuka are usually pretty equal, I like them too
Yukimura's yips make matches kind of boring
What about the WOK and the Renji and Inui pair? Tachibana was my favorite character and Renji was supposed to be one of the three most powerful middle schoolers. They got a half upgrade and then faded away. Idk I like how they devloped the powerful trinity of Atobe, Tezuka and Sanada but in doing so they got rid of the doubles pairs they had developed before.
I'm confused about how strong Tanegamishima is. They compared him to Oni by saying they were even. Is that the Oni with the Kishin aura? Is that the Oni with the PoP (because if I remember properly none of the highschoolers were suprised when Oni unlocked PoP)? Is that Oni with the ten ball strike and BJK alone? This has probably been discussed before, but it's been something that seriously confuses me.
Oni used Kishin aura in order to defeat Kaji, so I guess 10 balls + BJK can't be everything he used against Tanegashima. And I don't think that anyone can have fun playing against Shuuji tbh, lol.
That being said:
So... I guess Oni didn't use his Aura for years.
It was prolly just 10 balls BJK Oni then.
That's what I thought does that mean PoP Kintaro > Tanegamishima?
I never said that.
It depends on how strong PoP is and if it really is the ultimate aura. I'd like to know how Kintarou would go into PoP playing against a guy like Shuuji.
Now that I think about it (this is offtopic but screw it), shouldn't Tanegashima be able to do a null shot as a serve?
I know I was asking it as a question. I'm just saying Kintaro played equally with Oni with only ten ball strike and BJK. Therefore PoP Kintaro>> Oni with only ten ball strike and BJK. If Tanegamishima=Oni with only ten ball strike and BJK, PoP Kintaro>> Tanegamishima.
Until then, a decent indicator might be if we got closer to figuring out Oni's stats. If they're significantly lower than Tanegashima's, then it would be more likely that he'd need Kijin in order to get a draw. On the other hand, if they're the same or higher, a boost provided by Kijin should be significant enough to push Oni past a draw.
There are a few guys in POT known for their trickery and acting skills, but the true master of acting is Oni. Despite being the #1 player in his first year, he's managed to trick most of the U17 camp into thinking he's just some guy on court 5. Even the guys in the know obviously have no idea how good he is minus Byodouin and a handful of the top 10. Unlike the usual acting stuff, he not only fools his opponents but he also fools the reader. For example we're led to believe Nakagauchi was someone who could've played Oni straight up (yeah right), or that Kintarou sitting the net on fire is supposed to be pretty impressive, even though it'd later turn out that setting the net on fire is pretty much nothing compared to Kishin aura. Unlike most actors, Oni goes all the way to get his act to work, as he's completely willing to purposely lose games to keep the act going. After all, if he played anywhere remotely like his full power you'd never have anyone besides Byodouin that would challenge him. And even if he's playing just enough to win, there's no way he can keep this act going for 3 years if he always happened to win every game he plays against the normal guys of U17 camp.
I'm still betting at some point we'll see Tanegashima owned and then Oni will be like 'yeah his technique is weak' and then people will ask but isn't that the only guy he didn't beat and Oni will be like, "I never said that was over tennis."
Hahahahaha Irie's acting is on par with his.
Never really thought it out like you have. I think TnK!/KijinOni > Tanegashima.
Merging with the old thread.
Oops, I knew I must have made something like this before. Thanks for merging.
I also noticed something strange. In Oni's game whenever he's going remotely serious you always see guys on the floor exhausted. But how is this possible? We know Oni doesn't try to hit anybody on purpose so it's not like people are exhausted from injuries. We're told that for example 10-ball Kintaro can't even react to his rallies. Heck, even TnK can't always react to how fast his shots are. So there shouldn't even be enough time for people to get tired playing Oni. You'd just hit the ball and see some smoke and then immediately lose a point. I guess he's purposely toning down his ability so that people can even rally with him to help them training, though it sure doesn't seem to work very well on anyone else besides the Kintaro.
Also, each time Kintaro played him he's always saying Oni better not be secretly holding back and Oni says of course not, but he's obviously blatantly lying! He's always holding wayyyyyy back compared to his true potential!
