Haha completely butting in. I started watching these series really late (Honestly I'm still on episode like eighty-something) but I LUV them with capital letters too and I find this hilariously accurate! I'll have to keep up with these updates too. Sadly, I didn't want to get into Prince of Tennis at all, but I fell for it hard.
Yeah, I know it's hilarious and I haven't been watching it mostly because I'm busy with work, online or catching with other animes and videogames. I plan to get to episode 90 something on Sunday though, hopefully.
And I agree with you. I honestly don't like PoT because of the plot, my plot-based story to heart and fangirl over os Hikago. I like PoT for the characters and even if I dislike any of them eventually I either don't care about them or end up loving them. It's a curse!
