Synopsis

After their victory over Shitenhouji Middle School in the semifinals, Ryouma Echizen and the Seishun Academy Boys Tennis Team must now face off against the two-time defending champions of Rikkai University-Affiliated Middle School in order to claim the national title. Rikkai is not only seeking revenge for its team's previous loss to Seishun at the Kanto Regional Tournament, but they also are aiming to win the national title for a third consecutive year.

In the conclusion of Tennis no Oujisama, the titular "Prince of Tennis" is pitted against the "Child of God" in a head-to-head battle for the national championship title. Along the way, Ryouma must teach his opponents and teammates that there is more to tennis than winning.

Story: 7

Finally we reached the culminating arc of the national tournament, and although it has maintained those constants of being very summarized matches as in its last 2 pre-queues, I have to say that the descending party leaves a good taste in the mouth and with a more consistent development winning so 2 full chapters in it.
I do not want to fall into a spoiler but the "certain event" that occurs at the beginning of the matches is quite pleasant to alternate and show something different from the usual, but there is the typical dynamics of the matches and giving a special flavor to the ...

I will give my review here as a whole for my review to the national tournament arc

So the most arrogant and show-off sports protagonist returns together with his teammates to play in the most awaited tournament that they’ve been waiting for; the national tournament. The drama is even more far-fetched and can be extremely over-the-top; players are on the verge of dying just by PLAYING tennis, losing memories before an important game, bloods are spilling everywhere. I mean come on! I almost forgot that I am still watching a tennis story particularly, the finals arc. I completely understand that it’s going for a more ...

If there ever was a fever dream of an anime, this is it. It's hard not to be harsh with this review, but honestly I've never been more speechless at how an anime with multiple seasons and over two hundred episodes managed to turn out.

Short comment on the animation and music quality before I dive into my main issues with this anime: animation is as you would expect, it's an anime series from more than a decade ago, but even Slam Dunk from the 90s tops this hands down. And the music, gosh, how the studio skimped on the budget for this I don't ...
