Actually Atobe > Gimp!Sanada.
Remember Yukimura told Sanada he would have lost.
So without Rai, Atobe would have won.
I liked the arc too.
The idea of a Regional Select team was fanatastic and it began really great.
Kevin defeating Akutsu, Hiyoshi and Tetsu was cool.
Problem was the team the Filler guys decided to pick. It sucked. They screwed up.
Of those available, those who should have made it:
Sanada, Atobe, Fuji, Inui, Yanagi, Kirihara, Ryoma, maybe Yushi.
Sengoku in Singles was crazy bad. He sucks. I don't hate him but he simply isn't that good.
Fuji/Saeki bting Yanagi/Inui pair was a joke too far for me.
Bobby Max and Arnold Ignashov had lame abilities. They could have been given some cool shots but the anime guys didn't do well.
Kevin should have been given cooler abilities too. In fact, they all deserved cooler abilities.
I´m just basing my thoughts on that (and the fact that Sanada didn´t use all of his moves against Echizen and he stated plenty of times that he was different from any other guy he faced before).

It´s funny that they forgot to call Jirou (one of the most popular characters back then) and that they only called 3 Rikkai players.

Oh hell no. That one thing made me hate Kevin. Nobody does that to Akutsu.Quote:
He got the boxing upgrade that made him beat Tezuka zone. I'd say that's pretty good.Quote:
I dunno, I thought Bobby crushing those bananas was pretty badass.Quote:

He had defeating Akutsu on his CV. That's fantastic lol.
AnimeRegionals!Sengoku was fantastic. I wish they didn't run away with the storyline and kept it as canon as they could.
Had they kept it canon, that Kanto team would have been: Sanada, Atobe, Ryoma, Fuji, Kirihara, Inui, Yanagi and Yushi.
Couldn't stand how useless he was. They could have done a lot better.
Niou, Yagyuu, Marui and Jackal choosing not to participate I guess explains how Kikumaru and Yushi got a Doubles spot.
With Tachibana injured for some reason, Akutsu quitting tennis, I think they only screwed up by making Weste Coast USA lame, boring and poor abilities.
They shouldn't have improved Sengoku imo. It got me really pleased thinking it was canon since I watched the anime of PoT and only do manga for SPoT.
LOL imagine a Regional Camp at this stage in the story.
And Japan had Intra-National matches between the regions.
Stop discussing bad filler.
We had already stopped.
And it wasn´t THAT bad, I liked it 100 times more than SPoT
