Synopsis

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 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

*Disclaimer: I've already written a detailed review of Prince of Tennis. This is more or less an analysis of New Prince of Tennis, as it pertains to the original anime, so it's less structured and doesn't go in-depth on anything that isn't being compared to the original Prince of Tennis.*

To say that I had high hopes for New Prince of Tennis would be, you guessed it, an understatement. The original Prince of Tennis was not just an anime, it was THE anime, to me. It was that enigma that, despite seeming to be "just a sports anime," managed to capture my heart and rose above read more

I liked it. Prince of Tennis is one of my top favorite animes...but this new season...
STORY
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

New Prince of Tennis. A sequel which should not have been born.

Don't get me wrong. I absolutely loved the series and am still reading the manga. But I am not here to rate and talk about the whole series. I am here to talk about this particular season, I am going to review the 13 episodes I watched.

The story starts off where the last one ended. Seigaku became national champion and almost all of its regular members have left. But where are we now? Now we suddenly are at a U-17 training camp for tennis. And this U-17 camp is for the representatives of Japan. read more

Recommendations

it has both sports, shounen, school, and comedy genre in the story
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.
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 :)
