Erizo, would you suggest reading the manga as well? I see it every time I'm at the bookstore, but never buy it.
erizo - January 13, 2005 02:57 AM (GMT)
that's because US Distribution is only the MANGA because the anime hasn't been lisenced yet.
I haven't read the manga, I cannot say.

the manga is so far behind... just like Naruto >_>...
if you want to buy it go ahead. But you'll only read things you watched in the first 1-15ish episodes (i'm rusty on my POT anime)
But hey, it's $7.95 in the US... plus state tax... so it's not much.. save a few dollars :P... unless you can find it online -_-...
POT = good anime... but don't try playing tennis with what you learned from the show LoL... (i tried to act like Kevin [the American] by using his side racquet technique and i ended up knocking the ball out of the court :P)

I'm only up to episode 137 ...... and I'm not sick or tiread at all !!!!!!!!

ohh... you should wait for Episodes 141-143(ish): Kevin vs. Ryoma. IT'S INTENSE...

I should get back on the track stop downloading since 135 and 136 from Anime Otaku was freezing every couple of minutes

It just can get any cuter i guess i was wrong

Strangely enough, I picked up volume 1 and...didn't like it?! Yes, it's true. I just couldn't get into the story, and didn't like the characters.

No the first time Iīve heard this which is way I made an ANIME recommendation, not MANGA recommendation.
The manga is nothing like the anime, should try episode 01 instead of volume one, I bet you will like it.

mmhhh......I've watched a lot of anime related to sport (Captain Tsubasa, Attack Yu, Kyojin no Hoshi, Ashita no Joe....). Maybe i should give it a shot. I heard that there is a PS2 game too, but i'm too addicted to Virtua Tennis :rolleyes:
erizo - November 15, 2005 03:43 PM (GMT)
(before I tried this anime) I read and article about Sports anime and they said this was that when POT ended its run it would become the best Sport Anime ever... So I gave it a shot and I couldnīt agree more.
