This is not an anime if you actually like tennis. This is an anime if you want to watch crazy shit happen and cool effects. Think of this like Dream Sports from Mario & Sonic Olympics. It's not really the about the original sport. It's about having an excuse to fire off 10 tennis balls in one shot or create black holes on the court. For people that like high paced action like that, then Prince of Tennis does that with a side of backstory.
Most of the time in Prince of Tennis you're getting people's faces smashed in with tennis balls or someone is making
up some insane trick shot. But when push comes to shove, when it comes down to the wire, you get to learn about people's origins, their motivation for winning. And that's when their personalities manifest themselves on the tennis court.
If you're the kind of person whose going to complain because 2 middle schoolers are rallying with 10 tennis balls, then this is not the anime for you. But if you like flashy, high octane battles, you will like the show. Prince of Tennis doesn't try to be the perfect show, but the areas it does well, it does so with meaning.
