And again, Shiraishi's Entaku Shot wasn't animated, and Krauser just did one Southern Cross and fell, they really change things
I think this underlines my point that this anime company is just AWFUL.
They gave a whole episode to the GP tie-break, but they cut major elements out of the few full matches we got?
Tezuka VS Yamato was missing a rally or two, Atobe VS Irie, Krauser VS Nakagauchi, Shiraishi/Kirihara VS Miyako/Matsu all missing things.
I can only hope the Company that did the Nationals gets drafted in for contract to do the rest of the series.
Can't bare to imagine how they will ruin Atobe/Niou VS Ochi/Mouri into just still frames of Atobe's face struggling.
OVA was average at best. Of course it's nice to see some of the stuff animated, but the overall product is just disappointing compared to what it could have been. Although the next one should be pretty decent given that it has nothing to do with tennis.
I like the look of Sanada throwing Pillows. Pillow with Rai sounds beastly.
Now hoping for Samurai Drive with Pillows.
Oooohhh so they can remove content from the manga when it comes to the few full matches that we got,
But when it comes to unrelated things like Prince of Table Tennis and Prince of Pillowfighting they are suddenly able to go all out and throw in tons of content.
Screw these guys man.
But yeah, Sanada hurling a pillow does make me think Prince of Pillowfighting will be a decent of OVA.
I really dislike the "new looks" this company gave to the characters.
I mean, Kirihara went from this
It's not just the design, it's also quality. I prefer better quality Kirihara of course
Yeah, the artwork in the anime is like something out of a Shoujo anime.
I don't think this image is very shoujo. The artists have just improved their skills from the old anime. Better quality. I do prefer the better quality image, art and coloring of the new anime over the old one. Though I can't deny that they might have improved some charas to have a more appealing look.
I like SPoT anime art better than PoT art. It have better details. The actual story, though, is chopped up so much that it's horrible. And there's the racquet motion repeating. And rainbow shot. God.
WATCH THE NATIONALS OVA.
Its what I watched before reading the manga. I found it amazing.
Watch this trailer:
It uses the two best OST's in the entire series.

I personally preferred the Nationals lol. Thought it was just amazing. I wouldn't have loved this series so much had I not watched it.
