Middle school students fought fiercely against one another in a national tournament. Now, 50 chosen representatives return to fight again as high school students!

The stage is the U-17 (Under Seventeen) Japanese Representative Training Camp. Middle school students have been invited for the first time to a camp known to produce the best Japanese tennis players. National champions from Seigaku, Hyotei, Rikkai, Shitenhoji... With all the rivals from the national tournament attending, everyone eagerly awaits their reunion.

At first, the middle schoolers do not expect much from their high school opponents. However, the training camp is not so easy! Athletes with skills incomparable to those they previously faced and their mysterious coach appear before them. Faced with numerous demanding challenges, can the middle schoolers survive in this meritocratic training camp?

I never expected Prince of tennis to get a continuation and since I'm a big fan of the series, I got really excited when I heard the good news.
I just started watching it and what I can say for now is:
For this season the art got a little upgraded, not entirely to my liking but it's still really close to the previous art...so no problem there. And since the season just started, the epic battles are yet to come.
So for everyone who likes sports anime, give it a try. It's worth it
For Prince of tennis fans: ECHIZEN'S BACK!! "Mada mada, da ne" :D

I highly suggest that you watch Prince of Tennis and its National Tournament OVAs before watching New Prince of Tennis.

I loved the original Prince of Tennis (and National Tournament OVAs) and finished it in about three weeks a while ago. The New Prince of Tennis is had a completely different atmosphere that I didn't expect.

Story [7]: The story was acceptable. 50 middle school representatives from the national champions go to the U-17 Japanese representative camp against high school students. I thought it was interesting at first, except when that started to change further in. Then, the story started going downhill from there. I nearly read more

I liked it. Prince of Tennis is one of my top favorite animes...but this new season...
The story is ok, there is a plot...sort of. It's pretty basic, and not very complicated. The comedy is not sidesplitting. The matches seem repeating, but the techniques they have now are not like the first anime; they make you go "oh cool", unlike the first season where I was beyond excitement.
What devastated me beyond repair is the ending. To not spoil anything, I will not go in detail. It is among the worst ending I have ever watched, and if it's not for the following reasons, I am really read more

Anime: Kuroko no Basket
it has both sports, shounen, school, and comedy genre in the story

Anime: Major S1
the whole major series is about goals in life and struggling to achieve that goal and hardships along the way and never giving up :)

Like funny, but developed characters pursuing their goals? Both series will cater to your needs then.

We get to see a lot of competition, but also get to know the characters outside the matches. There is also real team spirit and the relationships between the players also develop. Both have a great sense of humor as well. These animes really raised the level of the 2012 winter line-up.

Anime: Hikaru no Go
mental struggle and improving the skills and the thrill is similar although one is indoor sport and other is outdoor but both are same in sense of spirit :)
