Prince of Tennis (Discussion)
 
Can someone tell me what is the relationship between Nanako and the Echizen family? I've only watched the anime so I'm not sure if they actually explained it in the manga. :confused:

She is Ryoma's cousin, isn't she? I think that's what Ryoma called her once (can't remember which episode).

I know there was an episode that Momoshiro said to thank his "relative" but it wasn't specific as to who was talking about (and it looked like Ryoma was a littled annoyed when he heard that). Also Nanako calls Ryoma, "Ryoma san" instead of "Ryoma kun", eventhough she's obviously older than him so I thought their relationship might be more compllicated than just cousins?

I think they hinted at it but I could be wrong...while were on the topic...where did you guys get the last episode 106 from? I can only find like one place http://www.mircx.com/bt/ and this link doesnt work for some reason.

It's not that strange

In Hikaru no Go, Touya Akira's mom calls him "Akira-san". Even a mother can call her son "san".

Prince of Tennis: When did they change voice actors?
 
So I was watching old episodes of PoT again, and going back to the good old days, it wasn't so bad until ep 3.

Tezuka started talking, he sounds sooooooooooo funny
then Kikamaru, he acctually had a deep voice
and Kaido HOLY crap, he sounds halarious

PS they also changed the drawing styles, the 12 year old girls LOOK like 12 year old girls, and not some crazy curvy girls like in the current episodes...man purberty kicks in fast in anime ;)

I think it's so ridiculous how they make these people out to be junior high students. Even Echizen who looks the youngest could pass for a freshman in high school.

But regardless I still love this series.

the most mature children in the world can be found by watching prince of tennis... they act more grown up than me...

great show!

Me and my friend are always confused while watching PoT... Kaidoh especially looks around 17 or 18... not 13... silly authors :P
I've found it's generally best to ignore the age the Japanese give to people anyway. It's usely wack in all things, games, anime etc.

And I don't know about changing voice actors, but it's possible the voice actors were asked to perform slightly differently. VAs take time to get into their roles, so somtimes voices change a little bit. Most English dubs suck at first, but get better later on (which doesn't mean they don't still suck :P).

That is true, even good shows like the Simpsons and Family Guy started out slightly differently and evolved as the show progressed. Just take Homer's voice, for example. It was way deeper and more serious in the beginning.

As far as I know, they've never changed the seiyuu in PoT. The reason you hear the difference is most likely because they modified their voices to change as the characters and series changed. And example (one that you've noticed too) would be Kikumaru. At the beginning of the series, he's actually fairly normal - it's not until later in the series that he starts developing the cute nonsense-type talking and the nya-ing catlike traits and so forth. His voice starts changing to be cuter and higher right around the same time.

uh, and that's why the PoT seiyuu are so godly! <3

ahem. sorry. just need to get that last bit in. ^^;

I bet they just developed those cute voices to please the fangirls.

PoT has been too much of a yaoi fest lately as well.

Prince of Tennis : A Day of the Survival Mountain
 
I've just catched up with the latest episode of PoT (115), and I've also watched the special one A Day of the Survival Mountain. Does anyone know between which regular episodes it takes place ?

Kasiree 2004-04-25 15:57

Uhm, I think around the match with Hyotei Gakuen. Perhaps before or after.

In one episode (which I forgot) she was said to be Ryoma's cousin, I think Shiba asked who she was when Inoue and Nanjiroh were having a match.. She said she was Nanjiroh's niece, ne? :confused: I forgot.
