New Prince of Tennis episode 13

Well, it was a good ending, but I can’t help but feel a little bit disappointed. I wanted to see the match between Ryoma and Kazuya, but we didn’t actually get to see anything other than Ryoma-kun using up to ten balls at once. What’s the point? This entire adaption revolved around their training and whatnot, but we didn’t even get to see the results of it.

Okay, okay… They may have improved significantly, but we didn’t get to see much. They finished their training, ran down the mountain whilst hitting incoming tennis balls, challenged the players of court two and defeated each and every one of them. Life is funny that way. The dropouts, who left the camp as losers, returned later and conquered a higher position than the winners. They disagreed at first, despite the fact that Ryoma and his comrades won fair and square. That’s when yet another load of matches started between the winners and the losers, probably to determine which side was better.

Sigh… I waited a long time to watch the match between Ryoma and Kazuya. They finally started playing against one another but I looked over at the time and realized that it wasn’t going to happen. There were only a few minutes left and they had just started their little match. It’s quite clear that Ryoma has improved a lot, but I just wanted to know if it was enough to beat that guy. Hell, I would actually love to know how he would fare against his father right now. Who wouldn’t want to see something like that? His father is the only person that he has never won against, so aren’t you, just like me, a bit curious about how much of that gap has been filled?

The final episode was definitely good alright, but it simply did not meet my expectations. This adaption overall turned out to be pretty amusing, and I think that other people agree too, seeing as the ratings for New Prince of Tennis are just has high as Chihayafuru’s. Whether or not I recommend this show depends on the person. There are a lot of Prince of Tennis fans that have seen it, but I would recommend it to your average sport-genre fan, that much is sure.
