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 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

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

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

oh how I've waited so long for a new season of Prince of Tennis. My wish has come true!!!!!. OMG New Prince of Tennis takes place after the Nationals Tournaments arc. Echizen Ryoma and everyone is back!!!! Yeah!!!! Down to the story- it seems that Team Seigaku and the other teams are invited to this institute U-17 to see who is the best players- Middle school and High School players.My guess the best players would be put into a team later on in the series(guessed based on the OP song) So they are pitted against one another. Player ranks from 1-10. 1 being the read more

It's been a while since I watched Prince of Tennis. Good to see this new series, albeit a short one.

Just for starter, everybody is in this series, and I mean everybody, from Tezuka to Atobe,. The series rely on your familiarity of PoT in general. Oh, they are also adding the high school players. This may alienate new viewers, but the story is fairly simple that it shouldn't be a big issue. Just don't expect much. It's only 13 episodes.

And that's where the story is a bit of a letdown. The opening made it seem like they would form a new "ultimate" team at the read more

So the most arrogant sports protagonist with the equally most arrogant characters returns in the anime world again with its new series.

With a new series comes with a new story as the majority of the players from the previous one are gathered in a training camp. There are new and much bigger obstacles that the players have to face. It is way harder than all the obstacles they’ve faced before. There’s also a whole new and different kind of drama. The previous one was interesting enough but I think it was still lacking with the certain excitement that would make you anticipate what was really read more

I enjoyed every bit of the prince of tennis! it was really interesting, fun and awesome! I loved all the different characters and their attitudes and the way they were drawn. Eiji is so cute plus ryoma! it's really cool. it made me love tennis again and it was very creative. I watched all the episodes and love love loved it so much that I was addicted and did not do much work....

I really want the creators to make more episodes if they can because I want to know what happens after ryoma wins the U.S open and what seigaku will do after the read more
