I don't really care about graphics, so I don't know how to rate them, but I've never once thought of the games I played having bad graphics. Their main features aren't the graphics anyway... they're mainly 2D artwork (colored manga-style pictures) and text, so graphics aren't important.

And yes, every game I've played has featured special moves for every character (like Tezuka Zone for Tezuka, Moon Volley for Oishi, etc...). Sometimes they have multiple special moves. In the PS2 game "Saikyou Team wo Kesseise yo" you can teach any character other characters' special moves, so you can have a Tezuka that can do Moon Volley, or Atobe that can do Ryoma's Drive B, or whatever else you feel like doing.

Not even that popular? Where? Every time I see a manga sales chart, Prince of Tennis is in the top 10 (often top 5) of all the manga. On Japan's largest cosplay site, PoT is the 2nd most cosplayed category. The musical's tickets usually sell out in 5 minutes. To say it's not popular would be incorrect. ^_^; It's one of Japan's most popular manga, and for an unlicensed anime, it's pretty well-known at American conventions, too (though not nearly in comparison to Japan/other parts of Asia's obsession with it... PoT is EVERYWHERE).

And I've seen all of the musicals, and they're all very good. They're fun to watch and the songs are catchy and fun to sing along to.

So is PoT big in all of Asia, not just Japan (I read that 30,000 people started tennis because of the show)? Because tennis rules so much I wish it would get a broader audience.

I just ask this because Shaghai China had the ATP Master's Cup in late November 2005 and it didn't seem like the people were all that jazzed about the matches (outside of the final).

I hear PoT is big enough in Asia to have Ryoma and Fuji's Japanese voice actors travel to Taiwan for a PoT event. I also went to a Taiwanese cafe yesterday to find that they sold Prince of Tennis keychains. ^_^ That was the only anime-related merchandise in the entire store, too. (The rest was food)

I also heard that the show made a lot of people start playing tennis in Japan. So much that they made Ryoma an official mascot of the Japanese Tennis Association...

I personally started becoming interested in tennis because of PoT. I try to play but I'm bad at it. ^_^ I showed this series to friends at school, and after watching it, every single one of them decided to try to play real tennis. It's very good for motivation! It makes me happy that a lot of PoT fans are going out and trying the sport and really getting into it, no matter how old or how active they are. I once saw a cute little boy wearing a blue jacket and saying he wanted to be like Ryoma and that he learned how to hit a twist serve. Things like that are just so cute and encouraging... ^_^ Even if I play tennis like Sakuno (or even worse...), things like this make me want to go out and play every day. It's really fun. I guess it's just harder to pick up than more popular sports (like basketball or american football) because it can be hard to find a place to play... (the only thing that keeps me from playing often is the ability to find a convenient court to play on)

I didnt mean to say its unpopular, sorryyyyy lol. I meant in England (where i live) its not that big, most of my friends dont know what it was until we went to some convention and there were people dressed up, thats how i first heard about it. none of them have seen it, i can quote that lol. And i mean if you ask any of my friends have you seen naruto or bleach they will shoot their hands right up in the air! thats what i kinda meant.

What is the latest tennis game for the ps2? in POT i mean.

I play tennis quite a bit, but im not gonna try the twist serve, cause i can hardly serve it good anywy lol. i havent played in ages, but PoT is making me want to join a tennis club and everything like that lol. got to wait till my exams finish though lol.

PoT definately has my vote for the best sports-anime. They have a great mix of good music, nice setting and tennis shots that people can only dream of.

But I do think that its not so popular here at the forums *sigh*. I mean like, the last OP was probably one of the best anime songs I've heard, yet Im probably the only person even mentioning a song from PoT

Of course, the animation/drawing isnt that good compared to other animes, so perhaps thats why its so shunned in AF...

Where is everyone here from?

I watched the match with echizen and sanada. what the hell is up with echizens voice lol, he just starts speaking english out of the blue. also his voice doesnt sound like someone who was born and raised in america lol. It was quite wierd at first, but it sounded kinda cool lol.
Im on episode 133 or something like that now. Does echizen ever meet the girl who decided to go back to the PRos? no spoilers please except for that point lol

The latest POT game for PS2 is Gakuensai no Oujisama. It's a dating sim based around a school festival. Comes with special cards featuring CGs from the game. It was released late December 2005. I want it...!!


Ok, this month's POT music announcements:

* Two singles will be relased March 15, 2006: one sung by Fudomine's Shinji Ibu and the other sung by Kyuuki Kiichi (guy who had like one line in the entire series... but they made fun of him for having a hard-to-say name in one of the January 1 2006 singles, so I guess they decided to give him his own single....!!)

* Reminder that two versions of Valentine Kiss (every year they release this song sung by a Hyotei member... the song is a re-make of an old Valentine song that was originally sung by a girl band.... ^_^;; ) will be released in February. ^_^

* 4 POT singles made the top 500 singles list on the Oricon chart (think of it as a Japanese billboard chart...) for last year. Impressive, since there are so many singles released in Japan every single day....!!

Ah, this is the newest PS2 game that is tennis and not a dating sim... I own it and it's very fun. ^_^
2005 Crystal Drive is actually the newest tennis-focused game, but it's for Nintendo DS. That game looks fun.. looks like you can watch the bench and the court at the same time thanks to the DS's two screens. ^_^

And asking where to download music or posting links to downloadable music is against forum rules.... ^_^;

Just realised that I've got a question that I have been itching to ask:

What is cool drive? Ive read somewhere that Ryoma gets that move after the training camp before Rikkaidai(sp?) but wasn't that cyclone smash?

Or was cool drive ommited in the anime?

Cool Drive is mentioned only in the manga. I think they used cyclone smash instead of cool drive in the anime... again because the Rikkaidai part of the anime is very different from the manga part because that's where the anime got ahead of the manga.

I think Ryoma does the Cyclone Smash in the manga in his match against Kirihara before the finals with Rikkai, but it wasn't given a name there.

Yeah he does, and then officially completes it after that match whilst training with Oishi. (oh my gosh i know something lol). Hey domino, that link for the latest tennis playing one goes to the konami website with loads of japanese lol i cant really understand it lol.

Why does echizen start speaking english in his match with sanada? it doesnt sound like someone who was born and raised in america, but it still sounds cool lol.
