    Discussion Objective Characters in NPoT

    Since the discussion about main characters flared up again, I decided to look into the topic a bit more. I'm using definitions from Dramatica (to the best of my abilities anyway) since it's rather extensive for an online resource. Any quotes used will be from there unless noted otherwise...

    Character USA - Japan Team Parallels

    So after learning the names of the remaining ones, I was looking at this image of the US reps again: And while doing that, I was thinking to myself "Man, this Jackson dude is pretty tall. I wonder if he's taller than Ochi (probably not, but that's not the point). He also has a pretty calm...

    Character G10 in Middle School

    Continuation from the Spoiler thread. Theory time: What do you think G10 was doing during MS? We know Byodoin was travelling the world during MS. He was aiming for the world, not the top of one country. We know Mouri was skipping practice because he was that good. What are everyone else's...
  4. Character The high schoolers 3 years ago

    What would they be relative to the current middle schoolers? The current generation of middle schoolers is said to be a once in a decade talent so it's hard to see that 3 years ago the overall talent was higher, so we can assume even their seemingly impossible talents is considered normal in 3...

    Character Does Irie have Asura no Shindou?

    We know that Irie naturally has off the charts (well, greater than 5) speed, mental, and technique. However, in the match against Akiba, Irie hits a shot that seems to surpass what we would normally be able to see out of him. After that, there's a different "air" about Irie, similar to what...

    Theory Kaoz' Random Theories

    Basically at some point a few weeks ago, while going through the manga and discussing some aspects, I started theorizing that some additional parts were planned, but removed from the final product for whatever reason, but hints as to what could have been there still exist. There are two (major)...
  9. Character The most powerful non-violent player

    Tezuka is undoubtedly the most powerful non-violent player in NPOT, in the sense that his tennis is actually focused around trying to score without injuring the opponent. Since Tezuka has been banished to Germany, who is the most powerful non-violent player in NPOT now? By non-violent I define...

    Special Move How did Irie use frozen world?

    So we've heard in the manga and in Konomi's interviews that frozen world, ( atobe's technique) uses insight to spot the blind spots. I'm trying to figure out how Irie could use it if he dont has insight. Its possible, he can see through the eyes of the opponents and their thoughts. but it...

    Match Fuji vs Irie

    I've been thinking this for a while and I would love to see this dream match. Who would be the winner? What do you guys think? Could Fuji see through Irie's acting and make him play all out? Or would Irie rape Fuji? We have to consider that Fuji, since his loss with Tezuka, has improved a...

    Theory battle vs the top ten high schoolers match order/outcome prediction

  17. Character Your opinion on the remaining first string high schoolers?

    What do you think of the remaining first stringers? Will they be more fodder like the others? Will we get full matches for once? My thoughts, Byoudouin, shuu and the guy who is probably ryoga will be good. The remaining ones will be more fodder who will curbstomp the court 1 people before...

    Character Strongest 2nd String High Schooler

    It might be a bit too early for this as we didn't see much of Tokugawa and Oni yet, but I was wondering, who do you guys think is the strongest of those three? Some information that may or may not be relevant: At the beginning of the series, the court distribution was: -Tokugawa - 1st...

    Discussion Court Numbers

    What do you people think, what is the highest court the characters (winners, loser, highschoolers, doesn't matter) can get to and what is their current level? I think Irie and Oni are court 1 material and the rest of the current 5th court could be 4th court just as well (maybe 3rd court but...
