So I haven’t decided yet whether I wanna blog about this, and I’ll figure it out when I get back to America. Nonetheless, I just wanted to give my thoughts on the first episode. So, at the end of Prince of Tennis, Echizen goes to America and everyone else returns to their respective schools. At the beginning of New Prince of Tennis, the middle schoolers are all invited to an exclusive camp for the elite tennis players.
The episode starts off with Echizen just being Echizen, which is pretty cool. I thought it was pretty predictable to start it off with Echizen beating an older player like they started the first season, but I was okay with it. I think the episode stayed pretty faithful to the manga, but I can’t remember the manga that well because I read it a while ago. The opening was a bit mellow for my taste. Also, it seemed like the first season showed more scenes with the players moving around the court, whereas this season kinda had still shots of the players after they hit the ball. All in all, it looks like it’ll be interesting to watch, so we’ll see whether I pick it up.
