A nice positive thing about this story is how the characters are diverse (which, again, is a nice touch to reality). From Echizen to Momoshiro to Kaidoh, just by these three alone, you can see that the character's personalities are VERY unique (again, reality). Another positive part about this is how they can get each respective personality to complement each other well when together. Another nice one is just how diverse the characters react when they score a point when they play other teams. The slapstick humor was also a nice touch.
~The Good Side:
- Each individual, as mentioned earlier, is unique with their very own personalities, and by their first tourney, you'll begin to remember their shots and their specialties, as well as their normal personalities.
Well this is one anime I really can't get enough of, though the skills are a bit out of the world it's really exciting
after watching prince of tennis watching the normal lawn tennis is boring >.<
I really like Fuji and Tezuka they are both awesome.
When I'm tired and stressed, I just think of Prince of Tennis and I'll then regain some strength afterwards (haha). Maybe it's because the characters are really fun to watch (and read), and this is one of the long shounen series that I want to experience all over and over again. It's the usual sports anime, and the techniques are way too awesome, but they keep me entertained. I love this series.Blue-Latte rated 8.25:
I think making an anime out of tennis was a great idea. It has motivated me to play tennis so much. Before I watched it, I thought tennis was just another boring sport but Prince of Tennis changed that. The art is excellent. The characters look Japanese and each player is easily distinguishable. Their skills in tennis are also incredible and unbelievable shot (though sometimes unrealistic). Well, the main character may be a bit arrogant but he gets along well with his teammates.stefnova rated 9.50:
This story is wonderfull and awesome.
I love all the characters XD (specially ryoma <3)
I loved the 178 chapters including additional chapters.
I've seen the Zenkoku TaiKai-Hen and Another Story OVA's.
It cost me find them, but in the end it was worth the effort.
At first, it can seem boring because of the plot: tennis. But skiping that, Prince of Tennis is a funny shonen with lots of handsome guys
and lots of hyper-weird techniques.
The graphics and quality are excellent and absolutely awesome. Not only the character design but also the scenics and the tennis
matches. However, it is hard to believe that high school students are able to play the way they do... or look the way they are. I mean, some of them seem older than me!!
One of the main characters is mistaken for a teacher!! And he is 14!! And what is also incredible is that they all are genius... that is impossible! I mean, Prince of Tennis is
a big lie!! Well, most of the anime is but... well, you know what i mean. Nevertheless, Prince is really good and joyable.
Maybe matches are too long but is worthy the time spent because of the impossible techniques shown.
And there is a lot of extra material, i mean, stuff to be bought, a lot of merchandising.
The Prince movie is just a big paranoia, a veeeeeeeery big one. Unreal to utmost limits.
All in all, it is good.
