Gins' Hadokyou according to Koharu is 218 KM/h...thats 135 miles...when a player cracks 180 k/m or 115 mph that usually a deadly shot..only two players hit about 120 mph (agassi and monfils i think) that's incredible..
PoT> Real life yet again
SO it's revealed that Akutsu took Banda's offer and trained abroad..i'd like to see what kind of beastly tennis he has come up with..and he wants revenge against Koshimae

Wait when was he offered by Banda o.O? Chapter please?
Dang, its only it's only lvl 7 as well! What the hell is Lvl 108 then , and even better, what about the Daisharin Yama Arashi?
I'd personally love the idea of two groups. In the "losers" there are several very interesting characters (Sanada, Nioh,Ibu, Renji, and I personally liked a lot the doubles masters Shishido and Oishi).
And if Ryoma has forfeited, and he is with the losers (maybe with Kintaroh, too), the level would be really similar:
Winners: Yukimira, Tezuka, Atobe, Fuji, Shiraishi and Chitose/Kintaroh. The others are good people like Yagyyu, Akutsu, Gin, Akaya, Kite...
Losers: Ryoma, Kintaroh/Chitose, Sanada, Nioh, Renji. Well, the rest aren´t at the level of the "middle class" of the winners, but they have the PoP boy and, IMAO, the next'll get it, Toyama Kintaroh
That's certainly an interesting theory. It would definitely hold water if Ryoma and Kintarou are forced to forfeit by not being present. It'd all be like the first chapter of the original series, when Ryoma lost due to showing up late to his match.
I wonder, since Akutsu was training overseas, maybe one of the foreign teams will be coached by whoever trained him, or have people on it he knows. It would be an interesting way to keep him relevant.
Indeed I don't get it. Mizuki got a win automatically because Inui couldn't play already, why didn't Minami?
There shouldn't be that much of a difference between shouting from the toilet that you were late, and not being there at all. Main character treatment hoping we don't notice, meh.
Well he just happens to be late..Inui flat out defaulted..
Also Kirihara is like the first character to destroy a racket right?
If you mean intentional, then yeah. Koshimae broke his against Ibu. It's fitting to be Kirihara.
I'm under the impression that Oni and Kazuya are going to decline Echizen's and Kintaro's challenges. They were the ones that stopped the high schoolers from challenging more of the middle schoolers, saying that it was kind of stupid to test the opponent's strength like that or something, right? Plus, I think Oni and Kazuya are a bit too cocky to accept challenges from under-five-feet-tall middle school 7th graders. But who knows...
I also find it a bit interesting that Echizen and Kintaro are both planning to play a match with a need to go use the toilet nagging at them. I would never do that, lol.
Their passion for tennis is so immense that they're probably thrilled enough for their intestines to stop working, lol.
If you look very carefully on the left side of chapter 13 page 4, you can see Higa's Hirakoba sitting next to who looks like Yamabuki's Higashikata. So I think the rest of the matches will be Hirakoba vs. Higashikata and Momo vs. Sengoku (they are standing next to each other on page 3).
Wait if thats so, the Jimmies were pretty smart and didn't fall for the "we play in doubles" trick.
Yeah, that's pretty impressive. I had counted out Higashitaka since Minami was matched up with Ryoma, but I guess their combination is better than we thought.
And man, that's pretty harsh. Yamabuki gets twice as many members there as Rokkaku? Poor Saeki.
