Prince of Tennis, the End

Friday, March 7, 2008 Leave a comment Go to comments

That was an odd experience, following it through. I am glad that Konomi has ended it, I am sure the poor man has had many sleepless nights and torments over the series. And I did love it in the beginning. I dropped off towards Nationals, because, hello, obvious signs of insanity + ghost writing.

Nonetheless – it is one heck of a sports epic.

Things to be “Wha-?” about:

  • Ryoma being all powerful. We get that, we truly do. But some of the stuff is going above and beyond … well, you know. “Child of God” “The Emperor” etc – these epithets save Konomi from having to develop his characters, which makes the Inner Critic weep.
  • Why make Rikkai evil? Again? I thought the outcome of the Kansai regionals was supposed to make them find a happier road. Of course, I blame all this on Yukimura taking meds. AAAAALLLLLLLL IN THE MEDS, PPL.
  • That last shot of Inui made him look like an Egyptian mummy come back from 398238642387489 BC to stalk Tezuka.
  • Golden Pair not winning once, despite… the Golden Pair ness!
  • WHY DOES RYOMA GO BACK? This ruins so many fics. Also, I thought he found fulfillment in Japan? Not going back would be a recognition of his lessons learned. But noooooooooo, our snarkboy has to go and find other f***wits to challenge. Rock on, moronic self-insert.

Regardless, I love the series, I love its teams, though Kite should run Konomi around the yard until he promises never to have another flashing scene every again.

Good luck in your next venture, Konomi-san.


P.S. I left out some points, because my brain is like Seigaku after Inui juice right now.

P.P.S. Anyone know why I cannot access WordPress from the home com? I need to upload my 19 and 20 recaps, dammit!

    Prince of Tennis, eh? I watched the first bit but was uninterested. Poor guy… It must be hard to continue a story when you’ve lost any motivation for it. Aie…

    Oh unrelated news: JGS is going to be in a movie called Doremifasolatido. 😀

    to tell you the truth i think it was stupid the way they ended it. It was kinda depressing and i was shocked. How could he shoot himself in the head? they never showed him in the hospital and no one ever said they went up there ( i think) so i dont know what to believe. i think hes still alive

    and if he isnt they should start a new series on the girl that had a crush on him and make it so that she want to become as good as ryoma or something
