- Reaction score
I thought about this actually. Even though Kintarou was part of Prince of Yakiniku, I don't think he'll realise how bad this drink is unless someone tells him before the match. As this is the first encounter of the tournament (so no one really knows how strong the juice is), I decided to ignore it.A factor I'm unsure about is how he'd react once he realizes that he has to drink Inui's juice if he loses, that might snap him out of any laughing fits?
I thought about this too. David is used to play at the net (so his reflexes should be pretty good), and his height + his playstyle should give him a pretty good reach, net balls shouldn't be a huge deal for him. Even if the combo of corner shots + net balls might confuse him, I think that Hara (with his high mental) should adapt to both shots easily and command David to do the same.Another point that hasn't been brought up yet though, I believe, is Nakagauchi's ability to aim for the net. Once he gets to serve that might make it difficult to break back. That's mostly going off the Echizen/Aoi vs Kikumaru/Itsuki match though, I don't know how effective that aim would be in reality.
Dammit you're making me read that chapter twice in 2 days.Ah, fair enough about the second point. However about the first one, wasn't he pretty scared of it as soon as the first person dropped out? It's true that no one knows how effective this juice is, but it usually has a lasting effect on the victims and Kintarou's imagination runs wild easily. Then again, I guess the juice names tend to be somewhat deceptive, so while we already know what it is, the players might not be aware of the true name just yet.
