Actually, Duke Homerun should stay in Rank SS. This technique is killer, literally. With this one shot you can instantly bench most players. It forced someone like Gin to retire (I'm not sure if that's what happened or if it was the last point). Regardless, Gin would have to retire if he is going to be flung tens of metres in the air with enormous force. Due to the fact that it's a match ending technique and it only requires a ball to the forehand side it should be in SS. It is not a technique which has major prerequisites such as a lob for Yama Arashi or a serve chance like Final Hadoukyu.
Taken from the manga, the scene where Kawamura hits it.Quote:
"This is the last Hadokyuuuuuu!!"
Taken from the Pair Puri: "The last Hadokyu in the match against Ishida Gin was a memorable shot."
Yes, it is performed differently than Hadokyus 1-108, but it is still considered a Hadokyu in the manga. It's just a new style or variation of it, like the Dash Hadokyu.
Gin's says, "It's not a hadokyuu!!"
The Dash Hadokyuu is still a level 1 hadokyuu, which makes it able to be neutralized by Gin's Hadokyuu Canceller, whereas Kawamura's frame serve can't be neutralized, which means that it is unequivocally not a hadokyuu.
It's still classified as a Hadokyu in the databooks, though. So, what do you want to call it rather than "Final Hadokyu?" Lets call it "Move That Is Called A Hadokyu Out Of Convenience But Is Not A Hadokyu Because Gin Couldn't Neutralize It," or MTICAHOOCBINAHBGCNI.
It's like the Super Saiyan 4 transformation in Dragon Ball GT, it is a form completely different from all the other Super Saiyan transformations, something new altogether, but it is called "Super Saiyan 4" out of convenience according to Word of God.
64- Impression – Hitouji Yuuji
Really? That high?
How is it better than the Neo-Scud Serve and the 108 Hadoukyu?...
You give Hitouji Sanada's physique and we have one heck of a player.

Why are we talking about Hitouji again?
