    Shin Prince of Tennis Chapter 134 Discussion/Predictions

    Chinese Scan | English Scan (Not yet available)

    No summary at this point, but the events should be fairly obvious to everyone.

    Re: Shin Prince of Tennis Chapter 134 Discussion/Predictions

    Some points that may be worth discussing. Some of this might be clarified once we have access to the Japanese chapter, but feel free to talk about it anyway:

    -Does this prove Ryoma can use TnK at any time or does he still need to be in the right mental state?
    -Can Ryoma use both TnK and Samurai at the same time?
    -Since it's confirmed that the Glowing Shot can be applied to other special shots, what do you think are the requirements, given that Byoudouin apparently can't combine it with his world techniques (or he would've done so)?
    -What do you make of Obandu being able to return both the Glowing Drive B and the TnK powered Drive B?
    -Taking his special jumping ability into consideration, is there any player on the Japanese team who you think is a likely opponent for Obandu?

    I'd say Irie, Kaoz, given the jokes we've seen so far about Irie's "lack of height." However, Irie's actually 178 cm, so he's really not short at all.

    1-Nope... unless we get some lines about it?
    2-We don't know but I expect him to be able to do it. Afterall, Ryoma did that semi-Samurai aura he showed back in Kanto during Muga (I know it's not the same, but it's kind of similar).
    3-I think Byoudouin didn't feel like to, or that the abilities he showed are a lot harder to mix than Drive B.
    4-That he's goooood. Prolly Tanegashima level.
    5-Yuuta andIrie as Frosty said, can't come up with anything atm.

    Regarding Irie, I didn't think of him at all to be honest. Could be an interesting confrontation though? The first person who came to my mind was actually Ohmagari since he's pretty much all about the physical aspects of the game. Obviously depends on whether Obandu is a singles or a doubles player.

    Like I mentioned in the OP, we don't have the Japanese version yet, so I don't know at this point. Should get it relatively soon though.

    Well, I'm pretty sure he went all out at the end, so I don't think it's the former. However, keeping in mind that the Glowing Shot requires the Super Sweet Spot as well, maybe the world techniques cannot be hit using the Super Sweet Spot (since it has three requirements it doesn't seem implausible that it's not compatible with the special properties of other complex shots)?

    I could see that. I think an important point here is though that the best HSers in general aren't helpless against TnK using MSers. So stuff like Kijin!Oni and Tanegashima being above TnK!Kintarou for instance seems more reasonable now in my opinion.

    Re: Shin Prince of Tennis Chapter 134 Discussion/Predictions

    I would like to see a Dudu vs Tangashima or Oni match. See how Tanegashima can obliviate any other techniques he has. See if Oni can use Kijin on the guy.

    Couple of questions: Do you think Ralph will play Byodoin in the line-up (since they're both the captains of their teams)?
    Do you think Ralph will give his spot to Ryoma just so he can play Byodoin?

    I just want to know what everyone thinks since Byodoin hasn't been spoken of at all since Ryoma arrived in the US.

    Byodouin's moves are said to be world-class so I'm pretty sure he can mix it up. I'm guessing they don't show him doing it because after a certain level there's no point to show the glowing shot. Someone who is world-class probably just hits everything at the strength of a glowing shot implicitly. I mean, when Byodouin used Pirates of the World it was like "Infinite balls? No worries just use more black holes!" I think when you're that crazy you don't have to show off weak moves like glowing shot!

    Maybe the glowing itself isn't responsible for the holes, but rather amplifies the properties of the shot it's used on. The original Glowing Shot we've seen so far might just be the glowing applied to an inherently destructive move, Byoudouin actually calls it "Destruction" after all. Drive B doesn't destroy anything to begin with, so a Glowing Drive B would just have a much stronger spin than the regular one.

    I don't think Reinhardt would give up his spot just like that, but I could see him getting injured during the tournament or something which would then make it seem like a better idea to take the 6th match instead of the 7th one or something. Alternatively the same thing could happen to Byoudouin with Byoudouin moving to a lower singles and Tokugawa playing in the last match.

    It would be great if Ryoma didn't get to play Byodoin but gets someone else instead, such as the suggestions on the thread who'd we like to see vs Ryoma.

    Maybe the Glowing Shot = SSS shot? And the move we've been calling ¨Glowing shot¨ until now is Destruction?

    I mean, just like BJK is a JK that is hit in the SSS, maybe this super Drive B is the same thing.

    I don't think so. First of all, Ryoga said that you have to be able to hit with the SSS in order to hit a GS. And secondly, the SSS practice racket was used by Oni at the beginning of the series and he also hit regular shots with it. The glowing seems to be some kind of energy you draw out of thin air, and I assume it'd get lost if you don't hit the ball with the SSS (iirc that happened during Ryoma's failed attempts at least).

    Oh fair enough then, I was pretty sure that there were several stuff like these that would go against my theory but oh well...

    ...like in the London movie lol.

    Ok so, nevertheless, is it too farfetched to think that this is a Sweet Spot Drive B and not a Glowing Shot Drive B?

    Well, check page 9 of the chapter. He pretty clearly puts the glowing aura on the ball there and it keeps glowing when following Drive B's path. It's both a super sweet spotted Drive B and a Glowing Drive B though since SSS is a requirement for the glowing aura to not fade.

    Oooh ok then, I either missed that detail or just didn't remember it. I guess your theory makes perfect sense (...or the GS got nerfed as Brand said, lol).
