I will tell you that I loved it, and if you don't want to see tennis luv, do not click below. Also, I plan to use icons of characters that aren't going to make the team until I feel like not!




This is how I feel about the first fanservice page in the new series!! It's probably difficult to tell what is going on. That's because I'm a total SPAZ and suck at photoshop. Rainbow!
There should be a picture here.

OK, before I move on, let me just say this about the opening Ryouma-mirakuru-boi scene. Konomi's English is superb. But on the first page of the subway scene I said to myself, "This is gonna be stupid." And it was. And I liked it.

Then, Seigaku is walking around, and Eiji's acting silly, but the whole team is not only represented but they each get to do a bit of what "they do", like a new chara intro, and MomoKai is the pairing I approve of, and NOT InuKai, which is what everybody else likes. Too bad! I like Momo and Kaidoh! Also, Fuji. And Tezuka. Which isn't even almost anywhere near a pairing I am interested in, but they're awesome d00ds. And Inui had some kakuritsu, and it was good! And I want one! And then Hyoutei shows up but for some reason they're like "Wtf Hyoutei?!" like they expected Hyoutei wouldn't get invited.
But that's not what this is about. I fully support Konomi's right to change canon to match what fans want, but I also support my right to make this face D: when he pairs up these two.
D:
There should be a picture here.

LOOK. BEHIND THE PERFECT SANADA. THERE'S RENJI!!1 Yeah I know. I can't stop Renji-spotting no matter how much I like some other character. Oh, also, Tanishi is in here. I'm glad he got a spot in the opening crowd, I was afraid he'd get dissed on account of being "big boned". 40.5 says his body fat percentage is like 17% or something embarrassingly low. Anyway, don't forget to notice SANADA and RENJI here!! Sanada is adorable. I want to change his hat to read "Jack Russel" tho.
There should be a picture here.

OK so there was like, some upperclassmen (highschoolers) hassling Seigaku, and I was like, "This is gonna be stupid." Then everybody did their signature moves, and it was stupid, and the highschoolers said they were (or was it just Tezuka?) "wild beasts". It was stupid. And I LOVED it.

And in that sequence? Inui! INUI IS YEY. Inui is my #1 sweetheart in the whole series! What does that mean? Hard to say, but I still maintain that Sanada is my favorite character, because he is teh ubar awesomeness. But if there was a real guy like Inui? I would like one.
There should be a picture here.

Fuji? Is a girl. I've had this theory for a long time, altho the bath episode made me rethink it, but look how shapely her butt and legs are. He's a girl! Also, since time began I've had trouble using masculine pronouns to refer to Fuji. Because SHE'S A GIRL. I love Fuji.
There should be a picture here.

O MY. WUT. This is a coach-type person! He's a man, for sure. A beautiful man. I felt like he was giving off a bit of a Kuja vibe, but I may be the only person who still remembers who Kuja is. We look forward to some SRSLY ILLEGAL DOUJINSHI featuring this beautiful man!
There should be a picture here.

So when the airplane first showed up, I said to myself, "wow, this is going to be REALLY stupid." And ... it became way stupider than I expected! And then it got MOAR STUPID. But AGAIN. I LOVED IT. I loved everything about this intro chapter! From the recycled shots to the recycled character design on the upperclassmen to the re-hashed movesets of the characters... it doesn't matter that it's recycled or we've seen it before, because IT'S BEGOODNESS. And you can disagree with me, and I don't mind, but for me, I think, this is exactly what I wanted to see in a Shin-tennis-no-oujisama!!

Back to the pictures!

Yeah you're like "what is this for?" Because you missed the top left corner. That's SENGOKU, folks! Sengoku might be my 2nd love in TeniPuri. I forgot since way back then. Yamabuki 4-evar ♥ But Akutsu was in the fanservice pic! Does that mean he'll be convinced to return to tennis because he wants to beat up highschoolers with tennis? Because they owe him drug money? WILL HE AND SENGOKU ROOM TOGETHER AT THE CAMP????? don't let me down, Konomi-sensei!!
There should be a picture here.

Do you know why I like this page? "Cuz Akaya's in it." Yes! "Cuz Tanishi's in it." Yes! "Cuz Kite is in it." Yes! "Cuz Koharu's almost in it." Yes! Nioh, Yukimura, and Tachibana, they're OK too I guess. Specially if they KISS.
There should be a picture here.

OK now is as good a time as any to talk about who the real oujisama is. It's Sanada. I know I said Bunta before in one of those tenipuri memes, but it has to be Sanada. Why? Because I said so. Sanada is hott, and tall, and has lovely hair, and a strange haircut, and he is embarrassed by stuff but he won't admit it, and he didn't want to smack Renji so they kissed, and he backhanded Akaya, and then they kissed and he defeated the undefeatedable Tezuka and then they kissed and he never gets any respect from Yukimura even when they kiss and I don't care what Yukimura said, he was so going to defeat Atobe and maybe kiss.
*whew*
And if that's not enough, there was a really character-defining moment for Oishi in which Sanada replied "Hou." and then they kissed.
And that is my proof, that Sanada is the Prince.

Did you know I have an Atobe-kitty? I do. I just now asked him if he thought Sanada was the prince, and he stopped purring. That is his way of saying, "If Sanada is the Prince, then Atobe better be the Princess."
Yes, dear. Atobe can be the Princess.
I'm not insanedrop trou!

I LAUGHED HEARTILY.

The best thing about this chapter for me was Sengoku. I made a fuss when the top colour pic was released and he wasn't in it, so it was like "HELL YEAH MY BITCHING PAYED OFF."

Even if, you know, the chapter was already done at the time :P

I totally would have preferred a hot lady coach. I miss Hanamura.

Sengoku is usually in stuff, but since Akutsu quit tennis we only get fanservice scenes of him, like in the end with Taka and stuff. But in the big color pic? He's in a tennis outfit!! I need more Sengoku and Akutsu icons.

Hanamura was awesome. And that duet with Sanada, that was like... the most awesomest too-much-to-listen-to-repeatedly awesomeness in all of the tenipuri songs evar.

I'm glad Konomi is still making tennis manga XD

The best part of this ShinPuri is that we're getting MOAR SANADA!! And Ryoma, but mostly SANADA!! Also, I love how in Sanada's intro, the high schoolers are going "...is he really a middle schooler?? :O" But mostly, Sanada. Would not say no to a Sanada ass-shot either. Liked Fuji's though. Obviously he (she?) works out.

But mostly, I would like to see Minami, but I doubt Konomi even registers them on his own meter. So, instead, I will hold out for some JaBun fanservice. Yesh.

Now you guys are making me think of who my favorite buchou is, but I'm not sure. It might be Minami! But it might be Tezuka! But it might be Kite!

This is gonna keep me up all night!

I know, that was SO CUTE when they wondered if Sanada was younger than them. If it's a Sanada butt-shot, we will TOTALLY be able to see up his shorts! I think I have some pics of that from screencaps, actually....

I spent forever making a Minami icon specifically for this reply!! Because Minami needs love, but Jimmies, being jimis, they aren't going to get any attention. Can we at least see Dan and Tohji!!! Probably not. I should be grateful Akutsu was on the color pic. I adore Yamabuki to pieces.

JaBun is always accepted *____*

Aw, man. I want a Minami icon. After I get a Sanada icon, I guess. Yours is total love, btw. I'm in awe that you found of shot of him where he actually looks hot :D

I constantly debate who my favorite buchou is, too. Is it Atobe? Is it Tezuka? Is it Yukimura? But in the end I always settle on Minami, because after all these god-modeing buchou, it's really cute having a guy who just became National levels strong from good ol' hard work and mastering the basics, even if he doesn't stand out.

Also, I am a huge Nangoku fan, so Minami love shoots up times a billion.

Yeah the anime is really bad about Minami. He looks good in the buchou poster, too, but I don't have a scan of it. Akazawa's even on that one! There's a team we'll never see again...

Yamabuki was so unique in that their captain wasn't the shiniest player, and he wasn't even the most charismatic like Yamato. I have a cute doujinshi where Minami sees Tachibana being in control of his team, and someone else, maybe Tezuka, and he tries to emulate them and the team just ignore him completely like "Oh were you talking to me?" It was adorable.

Nangoku is one of my favoritest pairings ever. If I ever get my doujinshi unpacked I'll scan some of them. They're just so cute!!

Omg, if you ever share your Nangoku doujins, I would love you forever. Have you seen the buchou swap by ETD? They send Minami to Hyotei, of all places!

I just noticed, but does it say in the corner of the first picture WE CAN HAS A FANBOOK SOON? WANT.

And I liked that scene where the Hyoutei bus turns up behind Momo and he's all shocked because he suddenly remembers what happened in that helicopter (and hopes for it to happen again soon, maybe during the camp).

Renji is awesome. But they draw him weird.

DROPPING TENNIS BALLS FROM A PLANE is awesome too! Because when dropped from high enough they'll speed up like MAD and the force on impact will be WHOA and if it HITS YOUR HEAD then YOU DIE. Or maybe you won't, but it'll hurt. TENNIS DEFIES SCIENCE. I LOVE POT.

There's something about a fanbook... but I'm not sure what else it says, I messed up my page too much XD

LOL the ATOBECOPTER!! Momo and Atobe... that's a pairing I can support!!

I love the irony that Eiji gets smacked in the head with a ball and has a concussion or whatever he had vs Rikkai in Kanto finals, but it's OK to drop 'em from a PLANE. lol. I LOVE THIS SERIES!!

Do you SEE that coach? He ISH SAKAKI'S BROTHER. I know it lol.


BTW after looking at your user pics and seeing the Bukkake!Sengoku one I googled Bukkake. and guess what? I threw up a little. It was horrible.

Then I looked at Sengoku a little.. and felt a little better :3

Ewwww!!!! Sorry. I'm going to suggest next time there's a questionable word, start with Urban Dictionary dot com. Then you will probably know whether or not you'd want to google it ><

ironically I was just about to take that icon down, cuz it's too gross to ever use....

Now I need a new Sengoku icon!!

It's from some doujinshi anthology I have. I can't look it up now because I boxed up all my doujinshi when I moved a couple of years ago and I haven't unboxed them yet ^^;;
