Discuss latest chapters and junk...

Semifinals...I was out of it for a while...

But holy frickin' hell, Taka is getting a worse beating than a mother freakin' NARUTO FIGHT by a damn tennis ball...and he FLYS INTO THE STANDS...

This page sent me into chills.

Probably the second coolest character returns out of nowhere.

Hell yeah,

Yeah, nice to see Akutsu again after the anime made him suck.

But yeah, I can do without tennis balls causing a character to fly into the stands and be a bloody mess.

Well, I like the crazy tennis fighting. It is hilarious...and really, I see no way to top how they did things before WITHOUT killing Taka with a tennis ball. You know...the lights calling from the stadium...300 point tiebreak...

These kids could own Roger Federer.

Ippo has its fair share of crazy crap, and Eyeshield 21 definatly surpassed PoT in the crazy department.

Because it isn't popular as a Jump title and as a shouen, they need crazy antics.

And nope, not Finals. Semis. After this is Rikkai rematch.

And seriously, let's see whats next? We got crazy 300 tiebreak, lights crashing from the top by a tennis ball, Taka getting killed, Super Saiyan Combos, Super Saiyan I/II/III...

I say next we get - like, Gum Gum ****.

are you reffering to PoT not popular or Tsubasa?

Akaba
1st January 2007, 7:46 AM
Tsubasa. And yes, I know - hugely popular; but if it was in SHOUEN JUMP, it would need crazy antics like super demon blasts.

Captain Tsubasa WAS in Shounen Jump.

You're probably mistaking what he's talking about with Tsubasa: Reservoir Chronicle

Wait, no - wait...Oh, dang - never mind. Yeah, blagh.

I was thinking of another soccer manga.

Can't attest for Hajime no Ippo as I've yet to find the time to read all seventy-something volumes (YIKES!), but Eyeshield 21 at least bothers to stick with some internal logic and never goes to absolutely insane levels, unlike what The Prince of Tennis apparently does.

Aw, cmon, Hellkorn, the bishies are awesome. So you must read it.

There's no such thing as too many bishies.

Also, do they even explain why the characters are capable of such feats?

Aw, cmon, Hellkorn, the bishies are awesome.

Revolutionary Girl Utena has awesome bishies. Wolf's Rain has awesome bishies. Gankutsuou: The Count of Monte has some vague semblance of awesome bishies.

The Prince of Tennis has a bunch of steroid-pumped pretty boys who could kill Superman for good with their "ZOMG TWIST SERVE!!11' type of antics.


So you must read it.

I'll probably do so when I have no anime to watch, no manga to read, already practiced my guitar enough, no sports going on, no reason to go downtown, already posted on the usual forums, etc.

... Yep, it's gonna be a while before that.
