And so it ends.

The thing about Prince of Tennis that bugs me is that at the end, it pretty much became a match of super powers. This series was really great in the beginning, when it actually focused on more of the tennis aspects of things and people actually relied upon actual skill that whatever power they had. Granted, you need your skill to have power, but it became a bit boring after awhile.

Anyway, save for the Echizen vs. Seniichi match, all of the Finals matches were done rather poorly and badly adapted from the manga. Though that's to be expected with only a 6 episode series.

Oh well. 6/10 anyway.

Sparkles everywhere, auras and balls splitting in half. Horrible ending for a wonderful anime.

I loved the series as a whole but towards the end it went way overboard. Started to think I was watching DB or something not a sports anime.

Yeah, I agree with what said above. It got too much SSJ3 and too little tennis. And I laughed my ass of at the English in the epilogue. Doesn't seem like even seiyuus are able to get rid of their accent, huh.

It's good as it is...I guess.
Now i really want to see the new team in kaidoh & momo era.

Re-watched it just now - have to say I agree with the whole "super powers in tennis" complaint.
I really liked how Echizen used all of the opponent's moves from the past (even though it was kinda stealing). I was also on the verge of tears when he remembered the past matches and opponents as well. Actually made me semi-like his character for a moment there - even though I like Rikkaidai's team better.

This anime had its ups and downs, but overall, it's still my favorite. Can't wait for the New Prince of Tennis one to be made (hopefully!)

My fucking god.
When did Prince of Tennis get so good?

I find the special effects funny as always, but it was entertaining to the max. I do not regret going through all the episodes of the anime... and Kunimitsu losing.

It did get to the point of have too many special effects but it was great anyway. It was the culmination of all their hard work and the arduous journey they completed. Congrats to Seigaku for winning the national tournament and ending Rikkaidai's streak!

Just finished watching and gotta say the finals wasn't that good compared to how the anime first started. There were too much reliance on those super shots with sparkles.. and auras. I didn't really like it how Echizen was completely losing in terms of skill power and endurance to Yukimura until he opened that last gate and got that special power thing. I mean, cause you have to be in that state of mind that tennis is fun, it's not something you can use all the time. So without it Echizen would've lost, meaning he actually isn't stronger than Yukimura.
The game between Sanada and Echizen was more realistic (except towards the end with all the colours and stuff) and was better than this match. Pretty disappointed.

The order in the discussion topics is fucked seems like most of people have not seen the first yakiniku ep...Last episode is number 7.

Anyway,as we discuss last episode here...i gained new phobia thanks to Yukimura because i imagined how it would feel to lose all senses. Thanks Tenipuri,that's exactly what i needed *sarcastic*.
Hmm,i wonder who is regulars in Seigaku now...except of Momo and Kaidoh and Ryoma (who is in the US anyway). I hope Arai finally made it:D

I'd post in episode 7 discussion but meh, I'm lazy and most people will post it here.

This show is beyond stupid at this point but still has some good points. The only matches I really enjoyed was Inui's and even Fuji's. The whole "I AM JESUS. I HAVE OVERCAME YUKIMURA'S SENSE KILLER THING. I WILL WIN" is bullshit and killed the last episode.

I'm trying to be positive. Actually the best thing about these ova series was that the pacing was so rushed. Otherwise the torturing would've lasted longer. And it's also good to have some 1/10 and 2/10 ratings.

Anyway the original pot serie was somehow relaxing to watch.

Lol Yukimura "There is only one ball" "The ball does not disappear" "There is no dead space"... He's basically just ignorin the techniques. I guess that's why he's the child of god
