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.
Okay! I must admit! I was a sport maniac! I have seen the manga completely and I love it! then, i try to watch the
anime, and it was more than what i predict! (even the anime was quite comfusing because it was defided into a lot of
seasons) I love everyone in Seigaku especially Ryoma-kun (Kyaaa!! Ryoma Ouji-sama! >,<)
Well...Tezuka Kunimitsu and Yuki was awesome along with Yukimura Sanada and Genjirou Sanada (the name was directly taken from Yukimura Genjirou Sanada from the Sengoku Samurai period when Nobunaga was on reign)
but i must say the story was so predictable, and easy to guess what will happened next before we see the end...and all the move and abilities the characters saw us were really IMPOSSIBLE! so, it means, the abilities are just a big lie so the story will look more interesting...
I don't reccoment this title for someone who is a sport player(different from sport maniac...) because they will find the story are impossible and fiction!
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.
