i honestly accept the storyline, and i'm still watching it

only thing i don't like is the work the studio did on PoT, they cut down on the graphics so much, and the animated loops take a long time (an example of a loop: when Echizen ties his shoes, it takes hrs!).....

i think if this project (PoT) fell into the hands of a better studio, it would've been much better.

i'm still surprised that this studio (Production I.G) made this. compared to what they made in their lifetime this is not so good.

i have no intention of throwing a flame war, and sorry to any of you who are fans of that studio. i'm just placing my opinion.

again i still like PoT!

Well, there is a LITTLE bit of character development, at least for Sengoku and Kirihara...maybe Akutsu too. Character development is not the point of this show anyways. Now, the action finally picked up and I've really enjoyed it.

Hope A-O can continue with the awesome fansubs

have you noticed how the design has progressed ?? it is 300 % better than the first eps (until eps 40...). but i must admit the manga is well done.

anyway, i'm satisfied with the current quality.

Got a question: I've seen PoT up to episode 178(The last episode). Is the manga further ahead? And if yes, what chapter number is episode 178 based on?

As I recall, PoT anime diverted from its manga counterpart long ago. Anyone have an idea on when it was exactly?

Spoiler:

I'm pretty sure the anime got ahead of the manga during the Rikkaidai matches. Things like Yagyuu and Niou's match were completely different in the anime and manga versions. The anime didn't have any more manga to work with, so things get very different from there.

The manga was so far behind the anime that they stopped the anime. I want it to come back. TT_TT

At least they're going to be releasing the nationals as a 7(I think) episode OVA.

i just finished watching PoT 178 a while ago and didn't really like it. does anyone if ep 178 is the last ep. i hope its not the last ep because i don't like how it ended. well i just thought that it was kinda sad how seigaku regulars went to the nationalist and ryoma weren't there with them but instead he was in america doing something else. it also seemed like ryoma was never coming back to japan again of something. anyways i just thought the ending of ep 178 was quite sad.

Here's what Prince of Tennis has been doing after the TV anime ended in spring 2005:

* Two movies were released to theaters and on DVD: "Futari no Samurai The First Game" and "Atobe Kara Okurimono" (a short movie that screened with "Futari no Samurai")
* Radio Show "Tennis no Oujisama on the Radio" (Rajipuri) is still going weekly and is almost to their 150th weekly show.
* Character vocal CD singles/albums are still being released. There's at least one new one per month. This December/January's CDs are:
----"Progress": a Ryoma mini-album featuring a Christmas song with mangaka Konomi Takeshi (12/24)
---- "Musical Tennis no Oujisama Best Actor Series" volume 001 and 002. These are Tezuka and Atobe albums, but sung by the guys who played Tezuka and Atobe in the latest Prince of Tennis musical. (12/19)
---- "Brand New Days" by the 3Guava Trio (Marui Bunta, Akutagawa Jiroh, and Aoi Kentarou). This song was featured in the PoT movie "Atobe Kara Okurimono". (1/1)
---- "Go Go Meganes" by the MEGANEs (megane means glasses). This is a strange group made up of Tezuka Kunimitsu, Inui Sadaharu, and Oshitari Yuushi. (1/1)
---- "Bokutachi no Shippai" by the Seigaku Freshmen. The thought of Horio singing makes me cry a little inside.... ^^; (1/1)

* Prince of Tennis musicals are still going strong and continuing this winter. "Imperial Match Hyotei" winter version will play live in Japan in January. There were three musicals performed/released on DVD in 2005. (Yamabuki, Hyotei, and the comedy concert Dream Live 2nd). The Hyotei musical was amazing!!
* Live Action movie coming out next year, featuring many members of the PoT musical's cast (including former cast). Some of the actresses in the movie are J-Pop singers. o_o
* OVA "Tennis no Oujisama: Zenkoku Taikai Hen" vol. 1, an OVA episode featuring the Nationals matches, comes out on DVD in Japan in March 2006 (unless they change the release date). Rumors say that this OVA will be 7 volumes long.
* Manga is at volume 31 in volume form. Continuing strong in weekly Shonen Jump!
* Konami has released a LOT of video games for this series. They're very fun! The newest game comes out this month and is a festival/dating sim.

Prince of Tennis is so great. ^_^ Always has a billion things going on at once. If you only keep up with the TV anime, you're missing out!

Thanks for the great update domino.

I have a bad feeling that the live action movie will suck.

To be more accurate, volume 31 has just been released, and Seigaku is now in the quarter-finals with a re-match with Hyoutei. (Hyoutei were invited back in the nationals as a wild-card, as Tokyo gets to host the national in the story, so Tokyo gets an extra wild-card slot. )

Speaking of which, I have to go and catch up my PoT, like Naruto, another slow paced manga, they're more fun to read if you read them in one bundle.
