Ok so the OVA is out.... let's discuss the match and the new info on
black aura and yukimura's playstyle.
Do you want to take the OVA as cannon? because of course only konomi can make up the story line for these anyways.
and the manga doesn't go indepth enough during this battle.
EDIT: Mods please delete or Merge this thread if it already exists.
Anywhere I can watch it? It's not up in my usual anime site.
well if you google
or replace 1 or 3
you'd find it . the problem is it isnt subbed.
The ova seems to follow the manga well. Accept we dont see sanada get hit by yuki's balls like in the manga. I guess if u take the OVAs as canon then my theory that yuki likes to hit balls at his yipped opponents doesn't work
all i can tell is the black aura, like i predicted seems like demonic or from a dark power.
just by looks, like i said, no subs out yet and i doubt the translations would mention that.
afterwards sanada was free from yips but still loss 7-3
But it's not subbed!
The OVA was good and it was pretty similar to the manga, except Yukimura's superiority was reduced, I mean, in the manga only Sanada scored one point with the Black Aura, however, in the OVA he scored points with that shot and before that with Zan and Rai, also I noticed that Jackal commented that Sanada's power and speed went up since the end of the National Finals.
The yips part was really good, much better than in the manga and I loved how BA was animated, the scary look the anime gave to it, it was simply amazing.
The OVA was appalling in accuracy to the manga.
The anime just changed so much things.
BA looked amazing however.
The manga and OVA are so different.
You can't go by what happened in the OVA for either of them.
The OVA had Sanada pathetic on the floor during Yips. Whilst in the manga he is the first player to stay standing whilst yipped.
The OVA had Zan and Rai take points off of Yuki, and had Sanada have the upper hand in rallying.
In the manga Yuki shat on both techniques and in the first point nobody had the upper hand.
The OVA had them go all out for the final point.
In the manga, at 4-1, or 5-1, Yukimura says ''I thought I could have fun playing tennis today'' and within the turn of a page he takes the rest of the points and wins the tie-break.
The OVA isn't canon and cannot be considered as canon at all.
Also not to burst OP's bubble, but this OVA has been out for forever and then some. They've even released the third one (saying something when you look at this anime's release schedule
i want to see teh sub version with all 3 yukimura talking to sanada about something, that made sanada turn black aura mode.
It's 4-0. Black Aura= 4-1.
Rocket science? Yukimura simply win 3 point in a row. It's not that hard. It wouldn't the first time Konomi skip a point that shown either.
The end of this page is where those points happen, due to the fact there is an obvious gap. Sanada LOSES THE POINT because he misses the ball. That makes the score 5-0 on this page. Then from the end of this page to black aura, there is a mystery (off screen) point gained by Yukimura, making the score 6-0. Black Aura was achieved on match point, making the score 6-1. Yukimura gets the last point, making it 7-1. Even the OVA interpreted the story this way, which is why Black Aura was done on match point.

Fayte, there IS no off-screen point.
It absolutely has to be at least 5-0 or 4-0 that Black Aura happens.
First of all the referee shouts the score count for us.
Then at 4-0, Sanada misses the ball, and in the next panel he takes a point with BA.
It can be argued he lost that point, and then at 5-0 got BA, but to say he got that point at 6-0 makes ZERO sense.
Why would Konomi miss THAT ONE panel when he iillustrated every other panel??
Your reasoning makes no sense.
Don't you think the ref would have shouted out match point???
Since if you say it was 6-0, then the ref would have shouted out match point at least twice. He never said it once.
You must be wrong. Yuki served at 1-0, Sanada at 2-0 and 3-0, We see Yuki serve at 4-0,
To even go by the OVA which was completely fan service and wrong shows a lot from you.
The OVA has them going all out for the last point. Even though in the manga Yukimura is standing on the ground as he wins the tie-break, whilst the anime exaggerates him doing some big smash at the end. The all-out play at the end never happened.
Yukimura realized he wasn't going to have fun in tennis anymore and won the tie-break at 5-1 or 4-1.
Yuki did not obtain only 1 point Fayte. You need re-read it.
It's 4-0, then 5-0 as if you look closely, the ball is bouncing on the ground besides Sanada I only just realized.
It was 5-0 when BA appears.
