Decent final episode. But, what I really want is the next season. Everyone knows that the best part of NPoT is when the overseas stringers show up.

Decent episode. What I like most about this anime is what others have said, the fact it ties up loose ends. As I predicted, Sanada has taken the role as leader of court 2, though the absence of black aura troubles me. They always seem to butcher Sanada by taking away his techniques in the anime. I like the fact that the coaches are so involved, and the development of Echizen and Kazuya.
Anime did a much better job explaining how Ryoma learned how to hit ten balls. The Migihashi game was really good. Glad that the second court had some showtime too. Guess we have to wait until the summer, hopefully, for new episodes. Don't see why we won't get any new episodes for the summer though, considering this anime, despite the high quality, reuses frames like a motherfu*ker.
I'll rewatch the entire thing before giving my opinions on the whole season. For now though, I have to say that it bugs me that they gave Migihashi the ability to hit 9 at once.
There were some other things that didn't line up, but I'll leave it at this for now.
When you're much stronger/have stronger base/techs, does it matter THAT much if you can't hit as many balls as someone else? In a normal match, you play only with one ball...? (Yes, if you're able to hit more, you'll probably be stronger, but..)
I still think Tokugawa isn't showing his true power and can hit 11 or 13 balls at the same time.
Actually when you look at the end, Tokugawa and Echizen are rallying with 10 balls, and then Tokugawa adds an 11th one.
It.... bugged me when they are counting point when they are hitting more than 1 ball in the court when playing an actual match. I was like... wtf... Anyone else feel the same way?
I think we're all immune to silly things in PoT by this point.
Then Tokugawa can hit more than ten balls in the manga. Feels like Mifune trolled Echizen a bit.
