The National Tournament continues for Ryouma Echizen and the Seishun Academy Boys' Tennis Team as they face off against last year's semifinalist, Shitenhouji Middle School. As winners of the Kansai Regionals, Shitenhouji is one of the top contenders to win this year's tournament. What's more, each member of the Shitenhouji team has skills that are said to surpass their Seishun counterparts. Shitenhouji also has Kintarou Tooyama, another "super rookie" who rivals Ryouma in strength and technique. Seishun will have to push the limits of their abilities to stand a chance at defeating the Kansai champions in this East versus West matchup.

Story: 3

First of all, let me clarify that in this section there will be a majority of "SPOILERS" regarding these OVAs, because I want to exemplify the reason for my discharge. Now with this explained let's get started.
In previous reviews I have always chosen to defend this title, its history and above all the fantasy that carries over it, because there is more of this, there was always an "extra" that caused you not to notice so much in the amount of inconsistencies and situations outside of physics they were happening so it was fun.
