I'm glad Konomi chose to include her at the end; I'm glad she developed beyond her The final volume of The Prince of Tennis features more magical shots - this time, Ryoma loses his sense of touch and sight. I'm glad Konomi chose to include her at the end; I'm glad she developed beyond her awkward, stuttering seventh-grade self. I do wish, however, that she'd played a larger and more important role throughout.
The volume concludes with a short novella written by the Konomi. I like that the novella ties up a lot of the loose ends, even if it does it in a sort of cliche way. I'm super sad that the series is over - I'm sure I'll check out the sequel series The New Prince of Tennis at some point. Nov 12, Tulsi rated it it was amazing. I absolutely love this series. I never wanted it to end. I literally cried when I finished this series. This book pretty much summarized the goal of the Seishun team which was to win the Championships Throughout the series, I loved the determination and enthusiasm of the characters.
I love how they were described and how they all played such an important role in the series. I love the plot, the story and how these amazing boys w I absolutely love this series. I love the plot, the story and how these amazing boys who worked together as a team and overcame challenging conflicts. Please Takeshi Konomi, I hope you continue this series :. I started off really liking this series. The games were fun and I found myself eager to read each new volume to know how the next match would turn out.
But by the end I was just reading to get through it. The problem is that it turns from a story about regular tennis even if it's rather unbelievable that all these kids would be so good at it they're as good as the pros into this magical realism thing where they all have super powers I don't really like this sort of magical realism where there are no rules and stuff is just random.
If it had been established that this is a world where people have super tennis powers, then okay, sure.
The Prince of Tennis
But it just kept getting more and more ridiculous as the story went on. I know most mangaka are writing whatever comes into their heads without really having a full plan, and that's fine. I generally enjoy it except if you're Takei Hiroyuki and write yourself into a corner and so just stop writing altogether instead of trying to think of a solution , but this just feels like really sloppy writing.
I can't help but compare it to Hikaru no Go and Slam Dunk, the only two other sports manga I've read, and it just really doesn't hold up at all. Slam Dunk's final game is one of the few fictional scenes I've ever gotten teary-eyed over, yet I really couldn't care less about the final game in PoT.

I knew Seigaku was going to win and I knew it would be through Ryoma's magical moves, not through any actual skill. And it turned out to be even worse; remembering that tennis is fun made him invincible? WTF ever. On the surface PoT appears to have hard work and teamwork, but somehow they don't really seem to affect anything because it's magical powers. And this is totally not anything new, but something that annoyed me all the way through the series. If you are going to draw a manga where all the characters look and often act like adults, why set it at a junior high?
Why not at least set it at high school so as to be maybe slightly more believable. The idea that any of these people are junior high students is laughable. May 07, Pearl Martinez rated it really liked it Shelves: mangaxmanhwa. A great sports manga with great fights that even moved me in to tears. I loved how each players who experience defeat strive to be better. Though I really want to see Ryoma defeated his father and Tezuka in the end. But well there's still the New Prince of Tennis series that we could look after for. Aug 22, TinTin Kalaw rated it it was amazing Shelves: manga , shounen , re-read.
And so concludes The Prince of Tennis manga with all the happy endings for everyone. The anime counterpart of this volume was pretty much the same except for some parts such as Ryuzaki-sensei crying in the manga. The anime also included some epilogue parts for the seniors, not just Kaidoh, Momo, and Ryoma. Now on to the sequel, The New Prince of Tennis! I loved how this series ended, and I can't wait to read the sequel.
The final match against Yukimura was perfect because it fully showed the fun that Ryoma had playing tennis that was hinted at in the Kanto Finals match. Nov 15, Muhammad Rajab rated it really liked it Shelves: manga.
