Ryoma Echizen just joined the Seishun Academy's tennis team, which is known for being one of the most competitive teams in Japan. Its members are incredibly talented, gifted, and athletic. With rigorous and extremely intense practices, the upperclassmen of the team expect the very best from themselves and they expect even more from the new members of the team. While most of the freshmen are on pins and needles hoping they won't get cut from the team, Ryoma Echizen is confident, cool, and collected. Some might even say he's cocky, but at least he's got the skills to back up his attitude. With his virtually unreturnable "twist serve," Ryoma is sure to make the starting team.

Join Ryoma and the other first years, as they train hard, make friends, and try to find a place for themselves on the team. And meet Ryoma's cute but chronically shy classmate Sakuno Ryuzaki. She's got a big crush on Ryoma, but will he ever notice her? Ryoma Echizen is the Prince of Tennis. He may be ready for the Seishun Academy tennis team, but are THEY ready for HIM?

Throughout the years of lurking on the internet, all I ever heard about PoT is that it's crap. Even its fans wouldn't sound too enthusiastic about it. So it's only natural that I've avoided this manga like a plague.

That was until a few weeks ago, when I got a request to make a sig with a PoT character, and was reminded that not everyone hates PoT. And so I thought "Hey, maybe I should check it out after all. If it's really THAT bad, then I'll just drop it after the first chapter". And surprise surprise, Prince of Tennis is one the most engaging and read more

well, the manga is the best I've read so far, completed.
the development is very great, however not much development focus on the female character.
and the author to me give me a lot of enjoyment, is so funny, there always the drama, the spirit team always present, and so touching, exciting, can be even thrilling and I'm not a fan and usually don't like sports neither sports anime and manga, and this one, for some reason is special and so different.

I'm writing this review for a variety of reasons: for a manga as popular as Prince of Tennis (POT) i would expect much more reviews, there are currently three i believe, and all three of these reviews have a strong positive bias which doesn't sit well with me. I do believe that this manga has some merits but i feel that the popularity is completely undeserved. before i move on to the main section of the review i am going to list what i like about the manga, and from the low score i gave it, it should be obvious the list is small. It read more

i gave a 10/10 because i really really love the plot, characters, the artwork & everything in this series. Its really a great series & it was my 2nd best so far though im not a sporty person & didnt know 'bout tennis at all. but, through this, i have this feeling that i wanted to learn playing this kind of sport & apply those techniques.. hahaha.. but really, this is a great series.. im done with the manga & im still waiting/searching for the tournament finals in anime.. hope to find it soon.. ^_^
