Overall, it was good.

Here's a post I wish was actually epic. It's only epic in that there are a BUNCH of pictures behind the cut. Not as many as that one time I put every Hamada screencap behind a cut, though. THat was like, 200 pictures or something! This isn't that.


So, overall, as a whole, it is good. Some of these are from the English version and some are from the Japanese version. The English North American versions are printed in higher quality because in America they have to make a profit on each manga sold, whereas in Japan they've probably already made most of the profit by the time they print the tanks. So sometimes it's easier to scan the NA version. Anyway, a mix here, of some scenes that I have, or that I liked. Manga.
(sorry about the englishness) Here's Beautiful Ibu Shinji. He was the first character that made me sit up and take notice and think maybe this series might be awesome.

Akutsu, though. When Akutsu came on the scene, I was like HEY. I LOVE THAT GUY. but I said it like this "I like him. I like him lots." (in the screencap gallery. it's true.)



And then there was UBERCUTE UBERFIASCO AKUMA AKAYA. How much more perfect can some character I'm going to squee over get!!! I mean, THE ULTIMATE BAD GUY SLASH CUTE GUY. ALL IN ONE!!!!!



This... is fanservice. For valamelmeo. She wubs Tezuka.

Sengoku is another cute guy that I was IN LOVE WITH early in the series. No matter how hott Rikkai is, Yamabuki is still the #1 team in my opinion.

Jimmys! This is where I learned that word, jimi. They're so CUTE though! The whole team is, really. They're the best team, and the cutest d00ds. I won't change my answer on the Tenipuri questionnaire, if I could go to any school? It'd be Yamabuki.

This is more fanservice for valamelmeo. She wubs Oishi.



But don't forget how beautiful Akutsu can be!

Inui seems to have an innate ability to lose his trousers! I just wanted to show you his butt. Even tho we all go DAMN WTF every time we see it.

This was left out of the anime. Remember? But it was SO SEXY in the manga! But... so not believeable...


This is just something random and cute I found in manga. Look how cute that is! Especially Inui.



At some point I realized that I was also IN LOVE WITH Renji. And you can't blame me, look how awesome he is!


THESE TWO. THEY ARE AWESOME. I LOVE THEM BOTH.


This is more of Inui and Renji.


I really love these guys. Love love love.


I'm out of things to say about these pictures of the Renji vs Inui match.


It ended with a ridiculously high tiebreak. 37-35 or something.



Yeah I included too much of this match for my purposes today. But I really love this match!!!!



But this was my favorite match in the entire series. I really expected Bunta/Jackal vs Eiji/Oishi to be EVEN MOARE UBAR, but it was glossed over. So this remains my favorite match in the whole series. I channel Jackal when I play tennis. He's amazing.



Renji's backhed is hott!!



SEE. THIS IS WHAT I'M TALKIN ABOUT. this is how I feel. Also, this was a beautiful end of the match. It was brilliant.



Tenipuri changed my life. Here's part of how. I have A BAJILLION PLUSHIES.


I even MADE MY OWN!! But I'm not done with Sanada yet, because he needs a face transplant. Yukimura, we can't decide on the hair, and Renji just needs the Rikkai kimono (from the 3 quava trio album art) to be finished. Then I have to make Piyoshi.


Look what else the series made me make... Inui j00s!! This one was good. It tastes mainly like green pepper. I got a juicer specifically to make more green pepper j00s. Because it's REALLY GOOD.


Here's the red j00s. Akazu. Or is this penal-tea? I have no idea. Anyway, it's "Hyper remix" on the CD. This one? IT WAS REALLY GOOD. But not so much as a beverage....


It's good as a pasta sauce! I'm not kidding! Just add some salt. I didn't so it came out a little odd, but if you salt & pepper it, it'll be fine.


Here's the biggest way tenipuri changed my life - I CAN HAS TENNIS. Would you believe I HAVE TWO YEARS TENNIS EXPERIENCE? More like 2 and a half years. Also, I wouldn't have even tried this racquet out except it's the one Renji uses. It's kinda awesome. They don't make 'em anymore. I have the last one! Völkl Catapult V1 midplus. You might be able to still pick up an oversize somewhere, but oversize pisses me off. I luv tennis.


Tennis is my BOYFRIEND. Here's more tenipuri changed my life. I watch tennis on tv! I put tenipuri posters up in my previously bare wall house! I NAMED THE CAT AFTER THAT CHIBI EPISODE WHERE SHINJI IS THE EVIL PRINCESS WITH THE POISON APPLE. The cat is Chibi Shinji Hime.


TENIPURI CHANGED MY LIFE.
ALSO
TENNIS IS MY BOYFRIEND.


(I guess I wasn't ready for it to be over. I knew I wasn't.)
I'm not insanedrop trou!

I remember when you first started talking about pot, when we were still hanging on to fullmetal alchemist... wow.

I approve of all your choice pages.. like the close up of akutsu's face, that's a good drawing. and how much data pair is in this post. not to be predictable, but inui v renji is my favorite match. I like a lot of the matches that were more about just.. tennis.

I was looking at the manga I own earlier today too, and saw this:

DOESN'T THAT MELT YOUR HEART?

ISHIDAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
omg, I'm going to MARRY HIM. LOOK HOW CUTE HE IS. HE NEEDS A AWESOME CUTE BOYFRIEND LIKE CHOTAROH OR SOMETHING. HE'S ALSO HUGE AND CUTE. I DO THIS WHEN I PLAY CRYSTAL DRIVE, TOO, BECAUSE ISHIDA IS THAT CUTE.

I think Konomi did a good job of keeping the datapair fans happy, because I squeeed several times during that match, except for those weird times they call each other by surnames because someone forgot or something. There's probably more scans of that match somewhere in the 'scans' gallery, because it's totally not my favorite match but THAT MATCH HAS ALL THE HOTTTTTTTTTTNESS IN IT. I really do love each of those guys, separate or together, Inui and Renji.

It was an awesome series. I don't know how I'll be able to let go of it ^^

2 years tennis experience!! It's like the beginning all over again. I'm actually surprised at how much of the fandom is being so mature about the end of it. I guess a lot of people were just waiting for it to end at this point.

Haha, it figures though that I would end up getting into Data Pair now that the series is over :p

I covet your collection of plushies ♥

Are we being mature? I feel like crying!! Lol, not really. We all knew Ryouma wasn't going to get to play Tezuka or Nanjiroh again, so I guess we liked the ending...? I don't know if I liked it or not. I wanted more Jackal and Bunta...

Data pair is yey. I think we'll still be making fics/arts/etc for years to come ^^

Oooh! So many plushies! I want them. 8D

I can't believe you made Inui juice! That is awesome! If that isn't a sign of an obsessed fan then I don't know what is. I'm not really that sad that PoT is over. I guess it's because time-wise I'm still a fairly new fan of PoT. I think I only got into it January/February of last year. I mean, I am sad but not as sad like a long-time fan like you seem to be. Then again, it still hasn't really sunk in that it's all over yet. Maybe when it's does I'll be bawling. Hee! ^_^

It's just that without any new material things are going to become stale. It always happens when a series is over, and this is one of those times I don't have a back-up series to replace it. I don't think I've ever been as into a series as I was with TeniPuri. I mean, yeah, WE MADE THE INUI JUICE. We didn't make the blue one, though, because it even killed Fuji and Inui, and that's how we know it's actually gross XD
But yeah, Oofuri hasn't really replaced TeniPuri, and I was hoping Eyeshield 21 would be able to pick up the slack, but I just can't get into that one and Oofuri is just really not written half as well (despite all my Konomi-hating complaints).

It was time for it to end, though. But that doesn't mean I have to like it!! ;D

Things may slow down a little but PoT is so huge that I doubt that it's just going to disappear off into the shadows. The PoT palooza will continue on for quite some time I am sure. (^o^)

And oh man, I forgot all about that blue juice! LOL! I loved how one of Inui's concoctions finally put Fuji down for the count! XD

I guess it's good that I didn't have time to really become attached to PoT. I hate it when a series that you're really into for years finally ends. PoT may be over now, but there's still lots of other series out there to get really into. If not now then maybe in the future. Speaking of which, do you know if Konomi has any plans to write a new manga? On the last page it said to "look forward to Konomi-sensei's next piece of work." I wonder what it is. 8D

It is SICK AND WRONG that that one volume of the manga automatically flips open to the page of Inui's butt. SICK AND WRONG.
