OK, so Telebi Tokyo is re-broadcasting TeniPuri on Thursdays at 5:30. I think this means 5:30am, but since I'm not in Japan I have no way of confirming this. It doesn't matter. I decided I would keep up with them, and they started on April 3. So this would be episode 3 today, so I caught up to episode 3.


Episode 1 is the intro episode. I better cover that one first before I get into the actual series.


The sour-puss of tennis. This is from the opening animation sequence in episode 1. It's a pretty good indicator of how the character turns out....


The first navel in the entire anime evar!! I don't even know whose navel it is. It might be Sasabe, or it might be Nanjiroh, or it might not be! The important thing is, this is THE FIRST NAVEL.


Sasabe, you got disused! I'd hate to be disused. Unless I was getting paid anyway. They can disuse me all they want as long as I still get a paycheck.


Hey, Sakuno! This is your relationship, in one photo! He's not going to be nicer later! It's OK. We know that in the end she falls for that sexy southerner, Kintaroh.


He's the Prince of Tennis! No, he's the DICK of tennis. "Prince" implies a level of decency that Ryouma kinda struggles with.


I also make the same face when my hair starts to curl up at the ends. It's really annoying. I should go get a haircut. Sasabe! You need a haircut!


Later in the series the airplane is used as some kind of symbolism for something BAD (i.e., Akaya hitting Fuji with the ball). THE AIRPLANE IS BAD. IT IS ON RYOUMA. THEREFORE, RYOUMA IS BAD!!


Episode 2 is the one where Ryouma defeats Arai's can of rocks and plays with Momo. I don't know if I took any pictures of it. IT'S MAKING ME A LITTLE EMO, THIS NOSTALGIC TRIP BACK THRU TENIPURI.

Mainly because Ryouma sucks really bad. You know why? In the beginning of the series, you kinda think he's gonna stop being a dick at some point. But then, like, we saw the end, and he nevar stopped being a dick. In fact, even when there was a plot device that would allow him to be a nice guy, he was a dick.
WHATEVER. I LOVE THE SERIES ANYWAY. love.. WITH A CAPITAL 'LUV'.

So, episode 3, it's the one where Ryouma plays Arai with the shitty racquet. Also the other regulars are almost maybe sorta kinda not really introduced in that episode. Now that I'm looking at what I took pics of, I feel like I should have taken moar pics of Inui. BUT EVERY TIME INUI WAS ON THE SCREEN I WAS LIKE HEY, THIS SHOW IS AWESOME, I LUV IT. WITH A CAPITAL 'LUV'. and so I didn't.


Here's the first time Horio announces his 2 years of tennis experience. I have 2 and a half years tennis experience. Does that make me pompous? No, my pomposity makes me pompous.


It's the first shot of Tezuka outside of the OP/ED animation. One of my sea monkeys is called Tezuka. Because it runs laps all the time. (The other one that runs laps, I call that one Kaidoh. Then there's Bunta, Jiroh, and Akaya. They sleep and eat moar than Tezuka and Kaidoh.)


This picture kinda creeps me out. HEY OISHI. 185 EPISODES FROM NOW, THAT WOMAN WILL BE WEARING A SWIMSUIT AND SITTING ON YOUR FACE, JIGGLING. AND NOT IN A NICE WAY. poor oishi.


Here's all the "regulars". How did they decide regulars? Did they have a ranking tournament prior to the end of the previous school year?

it doesn't matter how they decided. The point is, in one of the upcoming episodes (I'll try to stay on schedule!) Ryouma defeats Inui and then Kaidoh defeats Inui and that's what leads to Inui wearing the green sweatpance and a undershirt thru most of the first part of the series, and then he does something ubar cute in his green warm-up outfit, but that's like, in episode like, 50 or something. I forgot. Click here if you can't wait to see it. I WANT ONE.

Episodes 1-3 aren't very interesting. It's mostly Ryouma intro, and Ryouma sucks. Hopefully next week won't be so lame!! I love this anime! I hate this anime! Not rly. I love it. WITH A CAPITAL 'LUV'.
