Nice pics, Asky.
Oh snap, this anime company even do the posters wrong.
Shiraishi isn't taller than Sanada, and Fuji isn't that tall he's only 167cm while Sanada's 180cm.
Yukimura and Sanada are too short, the rest looks fairly accurate though.
Is just a super shot that can break even a wall, so there's no spin or strange effect around the ball, is just pure power.
Thing is how Byodouin can make the ball levitate, that just makes me think he has crazy mental powers, so in a stat chart mental would be like 9 or something.
There was a strange special effect on the ball. It was a special shot.
Same way that Rai isn't pure power. It is a special shot.
It shattered a wall yes, but that wasn't just pure power, as he didn't take a proper swing, it was a lazy serve.
Not even Konomi would give someone the power to shatter walls with a lazy serve.
But the special effect on the ball is clear as day in the image lol.
Then what the hell was that kind of serve lol? If it was lazy, I can't even imagine what can that guy do when he's serious...
Byoudouin didn't hit a serve. It was a topspin. You can tell by the action lines and the grip position that he swung the racquet horizontally. Not vertically.
He hits the exact same shot as both a Serve and a Forehand stroke with Topspin.
Its a shot he can use as both a Serve or Forehanded shot.
So, lazy forehand or lazy serve doesn't really matter. The point is he was hitting it effortlessly.
Glowing tennis ball.... well we have seen tennis balls on fire before from Hadoukyu.
Except the only monsters outside of Kanto were Kite, Chitose and Shiraishi...
And Kintarou... then you have Krauser and Hikaroba.
It would have been great if Konomi had created more cool schools. Shitenouji was already hinted in Kanto thanks to Chitose, and Higa didn't do much in the Nationals.
Although... Seigaku had already beaten the best rival team they ever had, so it was probably pointless.
