The Tezuka vs Atobe match was 3.5 episodes and Sanada vs Ryoma was 3 episodes. I think Ryoma vs Shinji was 3 episodes too. Most matches are only 2 episodes though.
The scenes that would be cut (probably) would be flashbacks, at least most of it. I would like to see Oni dressed up as Santa animated but I dunno. Chances of it being cut are high.
I'm pretty sure even another OVA would be made for the World Cup in about 2-3 years.
They're not gonna cut the opportunity for oni to be santa I think lol. Tezuka VS Kabaji managed the whole match and the flashback, it'll be fine i think. Also i think NPOT Matches are shorter than PoT's on average. Even if chapter count is the same, Konomi wasn't getting away with 9/10 page chapters back then.
The Tezuka vs Kabaji match was cut. The 1st 10-15 minutes was flashbacks and when we get back to the match, it was 3/4-0 in Tezuka's favour.
Manga was pretty much the same thing. A rally where Kabaji copies zero shiki/tezuka zone then tezuka races to 4-0 with Hyakuren.
Hopefully the anime can stay true to the manga with 1-2 eps of filler.
Watching the latest baby steps and seeing their ground strokes...i hope they can animate the ground strokes a little more realistically, won't hold my breath haha.
Could someone roughly translate this: http://eplus.jp/sys/web/s/shinteni_event/index.html
Google translate isn't making any sense.
Its got a rough summary of the first two OVA episodes.
Can't say much either, but it seems like the first episode will just be camp stuff, ending with Mifune sending a message to Sanada that the 1st String is going to return. The second episode seems to be the No. 17 and 18/19 matches. To me this sounds like those two will be the only matches though, meaning all the 11-20 will be covered in two or maybe even three episodes, which should leave room for flashbacks and possibly some other extra content.
^ I could only guess from the 4 photos XD
Hi! I usually don't post in english forums because my english is bad, but I wanted to help with this:

* Moriyama Eiji (Ibu) - 1st Momoshiro
* Araki Hirofumo (Zaizen) - 2nd Inui
* Aiba Hiroki (Irie) - 2nd Fuji

Vol 1 - 29 / 10 / 2014
Vol 2- 25 / 12 / 2014
Vol 3- 20/ 02 / 2015
Vol 4- 04 / 2015
Vol 5- 06 / 2015
The last 2 Vol. don’t have an exact day for now. I took the dates from the Animate webshop, as you can pre-order all the five volumes, they have the dates already.
And, I saw someone commenting about the new ED. The new ED is called "Party Time" and it looks (I'm not sure because I don't know Japanese) that in the first OVA the singers will be "Cap to Bin" and in the second OVA will be "Hyotei Eternity" .
^ Thanks for the info
ohh, if Kimijima voice actor was announced, was Byo-guy voice actor also announced?
Kimijima wasn't in the first list of characters. Who else was announced?

Looking at Mitsuya's uniform, kind of looks like Seigaku's.
Yasumoto hiroki will actually suit Byoudoin very well as his voice is rather deep. Im really looking forward to the momoshiro/kenya vs the shitenhouji captains battle. that bakyuun and momoshiro's BJK and hara tetsuya's gag are gonna be animated.
I dont think thats a seigaku uniform. It just has similar colors. Is Inui gonna get his match cause I read his name but i couldnt understand all of it completely.
Apparently there has been some live event on niconico.jp where they have aired the first Houkago no Ojiisama episode that's an extra OVA next to the one following the manga. So far I have only found these two videos. Still looking for a whole episode of some sort.
Ending song o Houkago no Ojiisama. Mostly just what seems to be pics from the episode where the black jersey middle schoolers have returned and are in their rooms --> http://www.nicovideo.jp/watch/sm24344269
And what could look like the opening to the new OVA that follows the manga. They're just screencaps, but they show recognizable scenes from the chapter as well as the first stringers in anime form --> http://www.nicovideo.jp/watch/sm24344614
