You people all lost faith in the forgotten bro, what's wrong with you all. Atobe had confidence in putting him in the Singles 2 spot in their match against Seigaku. Jiro is one of the best players on Hyotei. Kenya is not one of the best players on Shitenhouji. If Konomi had a matchup between Hyotei and Shitenhouji and Kenya/Jiro got paired up in singles, I really think Jiro would take it. It's kind of like Bunta playing singles against Kenya. I am 100% positive that Bunta would win against Kenya. Jiroh is a bit worse than Bunta but still good enough to win. I really don't think Kenya has anything against Jiro.
Jirou is Hyotei's 3rd best player, and Kenya is the 5th or 6th (or something like that) in Shitenhouji... But that doesn't mean anything, Shitenhouji is better than Hyotei lol.
Also, it's irrelevant since that was back at the Regionals. At Nationals, where Kenya is introduced, you really think Jirou would be in Singles 2 against Fuji?? God no.
Kabaji can't be tiered, then we have Hiyoshi, Shishido, Ootori and Mukahi lol.
Whilst Shitenhouji have Tooyama, Shiraishi, Chitose, Gin, then Kenya or Zaizen. I mean, Shitenhouji is a far stronger side than Hyoutei.
Whilst its true Marui > Kenya, Marui is a lot better than Jirou. He is somebody who returned Jack Knife and completely bossed a match against Kaidoh/Momoshiro.
Marui has a variety of volleys and just the fact Rikkai allowed him to play Singles as shown in the Databook let's you know he is a lot better than Jirou.
Jiro has a lot against him. His volleys can be sealed with lobs. He doesnt have Temporal Difference Hell or anything like that.
What's worse, he's up against the fastest in the series who just so happens to be a Counterpuncher.
Kenya has a lot against Jirou. Kenya can get to the net MUCH faster than Jirou, which means eventually he should be able to catch Magic Volley before it touches the ground.
This is a bad argument because it can be said against anybody. Just because hypothetically a volley can lose against a lob does not mean it will happen.Quote:
What does this even mean? I don't see why this has any part in why Kenya would win.Quote:
This doesn't mean Kenya can return it, nor does it mean he will reach the ball in time. It is merely a "possibility." If you went only by this logic, that means Bunta wouldn't be able to win a game on Kenya because he would simply return every volley. We know Kenya can't return all volleys simply by the matches he has already played.Quote:
