Moderator message by: KaozThere still haven't been that many matches in SPoT, so I figure we can just convert the old Part 1 Favourite Matches thread to cover both series from now. Anyone who has previously posted in this thread is of course more than welcome to update their lists.
5- Kirihara/Shiraishi - Miyako/Matsudaira
I really liked Atobe-Sanada but we didn't see a full match, just some points.
And... yeah I like Kirihara's matches.

Crap I forgot about Atobe - Ryoma... k it's the new number 2 and Kikumaru - Kai gets just a special mention (the first match I ever watched / read in PoT and it was awesome).
I always thought that Inui was just pretending, he never abandoned the data, and that's how he got the exact same result as they were kids. It was all a plot.
But in his match againt the no. 17, Yanagi says to Inui "playing without data like you did in Kanto is fun".

Yeah? In the first one, regardless of whether or not Inui actually threw away his data, Yanagi was under the perception that he did, or that's what he connects with the Kanto finals anyway. In the second one it's just a general statement evaluating the experience. That's how I'd interpret it at least to keep it consistent with what happened back then.
Also, my list in here is really outdated. Although I'm not really sure how it looks like now.
I think this all depends on whether or not Oni VS Kintaro gets animated, or if Atobe/Niou VS Ochi/Mouri gets animated.
And animated correctly at that. Then there's Kimijima/Tohno VS Marui/Kite too. Along with Atobe VS Irie.
There are at least 4 amazing matches in SPoT that can all contend for title of best matches in the series in anybody's Top5 imo.
I still have Hirakoba/Chinen VS Fuji/Kawamura as one of my favs. Really enjoyable to re-watch.
I'll have to come back and rearrange my list soon.
1. Yukimura vs. Kintarou - this is how PoT should've ended! No Jaket dropped and and Echizen covered in sweat and blank eyes... ^__^
2. Yukimura vs. Echizen - just because Yukimura owned Echizen 95% the whole time till he had PoP..
3. Fuji vs. Niou - The Hoshi Hanabi revelation.. i hope they show that in Shin, properly.
4. When Kikumaru was playing by himself and he multiplied cause he was lonely... ^__^ so touching...
5. Tezuka vs Kite - I still can't believe how he Zero drop that shot face to face.lol but who cares, it's awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!
No order here:
Marui/Jackal v. Momo/Kaidoh
Probably the last match where the Dunk Smash meant something. Also, Specialists against All-Rounders (or aggressive baseliners).
Tachibana v. Chitose
I loved most of the match but realizing how Tachibana was holding back was depressing.
Fuji v. Niou
I liked how Fuji easily uses his original 3 counters against "Shiraishi". Also liked the Inui dream.
Shiraishi v. Fuji
Sometimes, a genius will be completely outclassed. Fuji's big break with the 5th counter is cool but still beaten down.
Hiyoshi/Mukahi v. Inui/Kaidoh
The reveal of Kaidoh's new move is just perfect. The power shift was just executed brilliantly.
Atobe v. Irie
This is the first high tension battle in NPoT. The fact that Atobe practically abandons his pride is great.
Marui/Kite v. Kimijima/Tono
The victory of the high schoolers is great. I liked Tono's executions, Kimijima's negotiations, Kite using Viking Horn and Habu, and Marui's perfect fortress/wonder castle.
