To be honest, I'm really not a fan of sports anime at all. I tend to lean towards the slice-of-life and romance genres, with few exceptions. However, Prince of Tennis has surpassed all of my expectations, and it's become one of my most favorite anime of all time.

Let's start with the fact that it is indeed a sports anime. Almost every episode includes at least some aspect of tennis, even the filler episodes. Tennis is what connects all of the characters in Prince of Tennis, so naturally it has to be one of the most prominent features. What surprised me, though, is how this anime really opened my eyes towards the world of tennis. I'd never actually paid much attention to it, since it isn't one of those sports that's shoved down my throat by the media (e.g. American football and basketball). Watching an entire anime based upon it was out of the question for me at the time, but as I got sucked into it, I somehow began to gain a much deeper appreciation of the sport. That's one main reason why I love this anime: it was able to give me a newfound interest in something I'd never thought about before.

The Seigaku Regulars!
The good part of the story of Prince of Tennis starts when Ryoma Echizen joined the Seigaku regulars and it ends when they won the National Tournament and became National Tennis Champions.As you see,the excitement and the thrill in the anime starts when he joined the regulars because Ryoma fights diff. tennis players with their diff. playing styles from other teams with his teammates.You will be excited and you'll even say "who's gonna win?" or like "What team is their next opponent?" or even "Will they make it to the Nationals?".without the Seigaku regulars,the POT will lack excitement and suspense.So as thanks for the regulars,i made an article about them.

So,let's start!!!

Let's start with our main protagonist Ryoma!!!

Ryoma Echizen,the main character of POT,has talent in tennis he inherited from his father,Nanjiroh Echizen.He's cool and stubborn,very attractive to girls and idolized by many people.He always wears his cap and he always say his famous catchphrase "Mada Mada Dane" which means you still have a long way to go to his enemies.He's really born in america and won 4 times in the American Junior Tennis Tournament.His best friend in...

It has been a decade since Prince of Tennis (Tennis no Oujisama) came in the market and caught a lot of fans. Anyone who watched this crazy anime became addicted to it and made its fans love Tennis itself. Now, we narrowed down the list on why we love (or why we are addicted) this anime-sport.

On the top ten is the ever improving Inui Juice. No kidding, the juice itself made every practice a nightmare. With its out-of-this-world taste and lotsa nutrients, the so-called juice forced each and every player to improve in order not to drink the evil ‘j’. Indeed, the juice has done a big role on making the regulars (and even non-regulars) tougher than they used to be.

On the ninth spot of this list is Kawamura’s sushi. Of course, who doesn’t want to eat such scrumptious sushi acclaimed for its superb taste and quality? The sushi made by Kawamura Sr. was considered the best in Japan, so that clearly means Kawamura’s sushi should be on this list.

THE SEIGAKU
The Seigaku or the Seishun Gakuen is one of the most famous schools in Tokyo. The Seishun Gakuen is a prestigious and popular school. But why? The school has many sports club, although some weren't acknowledged, they have a club that made the mention of "Seishun Gakuen" catch almost anyone's attention. This certain club was the tennis club, the club that held a future professional tennis player. This tennis player is no other than the legendary Nanjiroh Echizen himself, the man who also happens to be the father of our protagonist, Ryoma Echizen. When he joined the tennis club, everything changed and this is the start of Seigaku's fame in the name of tennis.

Nanjiroh Echizen is a very skilled player and he lead the Seigaku times and times to the National Tennis Tournament.Because of Echizen Nanjiroh's skills in tennis,the Seigaku became popular at tennis but when Nanjiroh leaves the Seigaku to follow his dreams,Seigaku slowly loses their strength at tennis. that is, until Tezuka Kunimitsu,a national level player and Oishi Shuichiro,a player that has great accuracy joined the club.Yamato Yudai(their former captain)encourages Tezuka to...

Want to learn the twist serve just like Ryoma? Then,this is how to do it!
This is a article that contains the steps of the twist serve of Ryoma.

note:this is not an original article.but it may help some of the POT fans so i wrote it here on fanpop.

So,let's begin!

1.first of all,the grip recommended for performing a Twist Serve is the Eastern Backhand Grip

2. The toss of the ball is very crucial when performing a Twist Serve. You want
to toss it so that if you weren't going to take a swing at it,the ball would
land slightly behind and to the left of your head.

3. Before you swing,be sure to bend your knees, arch your back, and turn your
shoulders. Your back should be somewhat facing the net.

4. Swing from 7:00 to 1:00 (in simple terms just swing up, then to the
right). Be sure that when you swing that you brush the back of the ball to give it a
45 degree spin.

5. Make sure you aim high so that the ball will clear the net with no

Do you wonder why I am ultra active this year?

It's because it's POT's tenth anniversary!!!

To celebrate this wonderful year, since only a few remembers, I would want to make a joint project with all of you, POT fans!

Our joint project for this commemorative year is to make a POT encyclopedia here on fanpop.

You can write messages to me containing articles for POT. It may be terminology, the moves, the people, the places and the likes!

I will publish the article "The Prince of Tennis Encyclopedia" if I have compiled at least ten articles.

I will only compile articles of POT. You can only send message to me via fanpop by visiting my profile at link and write me a message or via my e-mail at andres_ryoma@yahoo.com.

Also, articles should be as short as zero to two articles only.

I will accept articles as long as fanpop exists.

Whether you agree or not, most of the wackiest and stomach-bursting scenes of POT came from cutest side stories of POT: the chibi episodes.

The reason why the anime version had these, I don't know. Maybe, the animation team wanted to come up with side stories that will tickle the fans' funny bones, and they will surely love.

I know you'll agree with me. The chibi version of the shounen characters are way cuter, not to mention the reduced seriousness in some of the characters. They look more cuddlier. And that simply means it will garner more fans too. Take Kaido for example. He looks like a gangster wearing a bandana, but in the chibi eps...woah, he looks so cute(you'll even forget his blunt attitude).

Now, let's discuss the lovely eps one at a time.

Episode 64: Compilation stories of Tenipuri.
The title says it all. It is a compilation of stories(three, to be exact) that took place somewhere in their imaginative era.

Jamie Lano, an American artist and columnist who has been living in Japan since 2004, is assisting Takeshi Konomi on his New Prince of Tennis (Shin Tennis no Ouji-sama) manga, which just launched in Shueisha's Jump Square magazine on Wednesday.

Lano answered a notice that Konomi posted for new assistant artists last September. At the time, Konomi had not officially announced that he was restarting The Prince of Tennis manga after ending it last March. During parts of the six months leading up to the new manga's launch, Lano and the rest of Konomi's staff would work in marathon sessions and not step foot outside the studio for up to a week or longer. (Lano qualified this to ANN, "Though the longest stay has been 10 days, the norm is roughly a week, then a break, and another week. We go out for dinner or to parks or events and things like that on occasion. Once even to an onsen [hot spring].")

In addition to contributing to the actual art, Lano translated the English dialogue in the manga. (The story's first chapter takes place in New York, although the story then moves back to Japan.) She speaks English, as well as Japanese "but not fluently."

my POT jacket with the cap of Echizen Ryoma
It all started when I was nine years old. I heard from my classmate talking to another classmate this: "Huy, alam mo, adik din siya sa Prince of Tennis" which means in English: "Hey, you know, she is also addicted to The Prince of Tennis." When I heard that, I thought tennis is boring and very unappealing.

Two years later, when I was browsing Hero TV, an anime channel here in the Philippines, I stumbled upon The Prince of Tennis once again. I saw that the anime is very great, the best show in the world! Who could knew that such kind of tennis exists! It is a tennis with Naruto! Then it instantly became my favorite show. I was wrong. Tennis is very appealing especially to those who watch it. As I like this kind of tennis, I also liked the true tennis.

I have now a goal to be the best POT fan n the world! My enthusiasm in this show comes in different ways. There is an anime store here in the Philippines named Comic Alley. I bought many things like posters, wallets and many more as I become a fan of this amazing show. I also bought, a Seishun Gakuen Jacket!

Zero-Shiki (Degree) Drop shot. This shot causes the ball to roll away from the opponent and towards the net once it drops on their side of the tennis court (usually landing a foot away from the net), preventing them from hitting the ball again since it does not bounce toward them. He later develops a variation of this technique in the form of a serve called the Zero-Shiki Serve. Another one of Tezuka's signature techniques is the Tezuka Zone (手塚ゾーン Tezuka Zōn), a technique which involves him putting enough spin on the ball in order to force nearly all hits to be "sucked" into his hit zone, making it unnecessary for him to move around the court. He is also able to use this technique so as to make the ball go out of bounds rather than toward him, with this being dubbed the Tezuka Phantom. However, in order to do this, Tezuka must create an even greater spin on the ball, which can result in Tezuka re-injuring his arm or being permanently sidelined if he uses it consecutively.
Tezuka has also opened two of the three doors of Muga no Kyōchi (無我の境地, trans. State of Self Actualization), which is a technique in the series that can only be achieved when a tennis...

Twist Serve (ツイスト サーブ )
A serve Ryoma typically performs with his right hand, though it needs to be hit with the opponent's dominant hand. The twist serve is Ryoma's most notable shot. It is meant to shoot towards the opponent's face, making it difficult to return. He can perform it with his left hand when he is facing left-handed opponents. He claims that he does this so he can hit the opponent in the face with the ball. It was first used against Sasabe.
In the English dubbed version of Prince of Tennis, the twist serve is referred to as the kick serve, which is similar to the twist serve, but is considered to be less powerful and easier to perform than the twist serve.


The Twist Serve Tornado
Twist Smash (ツイスト スマッシュ tsuisuto sumasshu)

PRINCE OF TENNIS OVA REVIEW

Ryoma's back and back with new tricks in his sleeve! After an intriguing appearance in the US open, Ryoma is now back in Tokyo to be with his teammates, the Seigaku Tennis Club to win the Nationals. New and old rivals and friends emerged like the vengeful Hyōtei Academy, the Dark Horse Higa from Okinawa and mysterious Shitenhouji from Osaka . But the more powerful Seigaku has no match aginst the invincible Rikkai from Kanagawa.

In April 2006, an original video animation (OVA) continuation of the anime began to be released over a span of seven DVDs. The beginning of the second OVA series was released on June 22, 2007, roughly 3 months after the end of the first. The second OVA finished on January 25, 2008, containing six episodes over a span of three DVDs. The third OVA started on April 25, 2008, and finished on January 23, 2009. A fourth OVA titled "Another Story" has been scheduled for release on May 26, 2009, and will be based on the pasts of several characters. It is now by studio M.S.C., not by studio Trans Arts which was the studio for the anime.

Dear Prince ~To the Prince of Tennis~


"The ending is but another beginning"

Last friday, I watched the Prince of Tennis' final set of episodes.

What exciting matches they had! Here's the Tournament plan

S3: Tezuka Kunimitsu vs. Sanada Genichirou

D2: Inui Sadaharu & Kaidoh Kaoru vs. Yanagi Renji & Kirihara Akaya

S2: Fuji Syuusuke vs. Niou Masaharu

D1: Ooishi Syuichiro & Kikumaru Eiji vs. Marui Bunta & Kuwahara Jackal

S1: Echizen Ryoma vs. Yukimura Seiichi



Our samurai junior had the finest teacher in the world. He had the regulars, Tezuka-buchou, and most of all, his father, the original legendary Samurai, Echizen Nanjirou.
The amnesia he got from training in the mountains witn Nanjirou made a very significant task in the whole story, namely, how his feelings(ecstasy) went through all those challenges, and secondly, how he opened the third door of Muga no Kyouchi, which is Teni Muho no Kiwami.
