prince of tennis anime
« on: March 01, 2006, 01:28:25 AM »

anyone watch this?
i find the anime series to be much more interesting than the manga purely because.. it's tennis, duh.

tennis is a sport, therefore animation would trump manga in almost all forms of course. i usually prefer manga by far also, pot is the only series i actually like in anime form MORE than the manga.

the manga's still going though.. when i went to tokyo i bought volume 29 or so, anyone know who they're playing? i semi-translated some of the volume and it seemed like ryoma was playing this fat guy named "big ben".

fuji was in doubles with kawamura and fuji did his fourth triple counter, some move that seemed to just return a crazy ass ball (you know how it is, past episode 50 or so in the anime just about everything people do is bullshit lol, but the manga's even worse).

so yeah anyone watch this series?
just wondering also because i'm making an AMV on it for the contest so... hopefully there's some PoT anime fans out there :P

I've seen 128 episodes or so.  I just finished Rikkaidai.

I think the series is great.  It just draws you in with the excitement.  Sometime, I intend to finish up the anime.  I'll consider picking up the manga too.

Fuji has a fourth "triple" counter? XD; Crazy~.

If you want another great example of anime trumping the manga for similar reasons, check out Initial D.

yeah, the series turns a bit TOO "DBZ" around ryoma's match with sanada and later on, it gets even worse with ryoma's match against kevin.

i can do kevin's "illusion", it's nothing more than hitting the ball with the side(frame) of the racket, but it doesn't make the ball flip out like that; rather it makes it go about as fast as a normal hit for a few seconds, then just straight drop in speed to almost nothing at all. it's like a smash drop-shot or something... XD

Once I was able to completely ignore the fact that that's not how you play tennis, I grew to like PoT.  That reminds me that I need to ask someone what volume the anime ends at so I can continue with it.

PoT is one of my obsessions!

here' the 411 (god does anyone even say that these days???)

the anime ends after the Rikkai matches because it caught up with the manga, so they kinda just made up the last bunch of eps. the anime Rikkai matches were made up as they animated, so go read the manga from there. The manga Rikkai matches are 10 times better! All the Senbatsu and American stuff is just anime. In the manga they go on and introduce Shitenhouji, Higa, and are now playing Hyotei in the Nationals. There are supposed to be OVA eps coming out this month of the Higa matches, so keep your eyes pealed for them~

if you hang around the livejournal communities people always update with new information. there's also a live action movie being filmed now. most of the cast is made up of the musical cast. i believe it takes place around the Hyotei matches. AND there's going to be another musical performance in japan this month, so even though the anime has ended, the fandom is still quite busy.

Great series and really enjoyed watching them.  I was so obsessed with this series I sacrificed by Neo Geo collections to buy the R2 dvds.  :oops:

But I'm sad that the Hyoutei cast is not the same as from the Musical. KAZU CHA~~~N! The Atobe they got for the movie looks so weird! His hair is all poofy. Mewants Kazu chan. Mmm....

*saw HyouteiMyu live in Japan* X.D
Shirota and Katou, YUM!

Looking forward to the OVAs. Better be a lotta Atobe!

Can you tell who my fave chara is? LoL.

Indeed! Atobe luv~ <3

Yeah. I really want to see/hear Tezuka and Atobe's duet! .*_* OTP!

Oh, so Date is still gonna be Ootori for the movie? Cool. Still wish the rest of Hyoutei were the same though...

I would personally rather see Yanagi as Ryoma but that's just cuz I've only seen him in the musicals (*has only seen the first Musical and HyouteiMyu*).
