Tenisu no Ouji-sama – Zenkoku Taikai-hen Finals
Tenisu no Ouji-sama a.k.a. The Prince of Tennis is such an AWESOME series! I just love it…love it, love it! It’s a super long series though 178 episodes followed by an extra 26 episodes in the OVA. Then there’s another OVA and a movie. All of which I’ve watched and own =D Teni Puri is just like a really familiar name that they use for some of their special chibi episodes.
I finished watching the last two episodes of the National Tournament OVA yesterday and just got so happy and excited over it. It’s really good, I’d recommend it to everyone! Well…as long as you like tennis and don’t mind seeing the exaggerated playing. But it’s really nice to see how each character grows and evolves.
Here’s a pretty basic summary of it from Animenewsnetwork.com:
Echizen Ryoma is a young tennis prodigy who has won 4 consecutive tennis championships but who constantly lies in the shadow of his father, a former pro tennis player. He joins the Seishun Gakuen junior highschool, one of the best tennis schools in Japan, and there along with his teamates he learns to find his own type of tennis in an attempt to defeat his biggest obstacle of all: his father as well as himself.
