As the first season of the popular shonen (boy's) series Prince of Tennis concludes, the Seigaku Junior High team is preparing for a city-wide tournament that could propel them to a new level of competition, and 7th grade ace Ryoma Echizen is confronting his personal demons. Much of the story is devoted to a preliminary match with Fudomine Academy, whose team is led by a proudly independent student-coach. Ryoma suffers an injury while playing an underhanded opponent, but recovers using the "Two Sword Style," a technique for switching hands in mid-play developed by his father, legendary pro Nanjiro Echizen. That victory reveals Ryoma's problem: he emulates his father while seeking to escape from his shadow. Team captain Kunimitsu Tezuka pressures Ryoma to develop his own playing style and become the "Pillar of Seigaku." These adventures grow more entertaining as Ryoma's icy facade crumbles and he befriends irrepressible Takeshi "Momo" Momoshiro. In addition to Momo, other team members emerge as interesting secondary characters: They win Ryoma over with their celebratory hijinks in a sushi bar after beating Fudomine. In short, the second collection of Prince of Tennis is far more enjoyable than the first. (Rated A, suitable for ages 10 and older: minor violence, minor risqué humor, tobacco use) --Charles Solomon

Product Description

Ryoma Echizen and the rest of the Seigaku players enter the district tennis tournament as the school to beat. But an unknown team comes from out of nowhere to put them to the test. During a series of intense matches marked by extreme angles, tough spins, and gutsy play, it starts to look like the favorites will be taken down! Ryoma even gets injured during his grueling match and desperately searches for a way to win. Can he pull it off and keep his reign as The Prince of Tennis?

3.0 out of 5 stars It's getting better June 8, 2008
Verified Purchase
Let's start this off by saying that I am an anime snob. I really love to watch my anime with sub-titles since dubbing is usually horrible. In the Price of Tennis, Set 2, the dubbing is horrible! More horrible than normal. Of course, this set does allow you to watch with the original japanese voices and subtitles, which I recommend. In the english version, they mispronounce just about everything including some of the names and schools. It is some of the worst dubbing I have ever heard. However, I will go as far to say that this set is better than the first set. In the second set I'm not seeing any missing episodes or scenes that were prevelant in the first set.

The Prince of Tennis is a series that I really love and think that it's worth a watch. It's slightly different than the managa, but both are truly worth a watch. With the second set getting better, I'm going to say that this is worth a buy. The first set was bad, but this set is worth a watch. Plus you get to see Echizen play in his first tournament, which is always fun.

4.0 out of 5 stars "Mada mada dane" December 26, 2007
The phrase in the title captures the essence of this series extremely well, especially since it can be interpreted in different ways. If you have watched the anime in Japanese with English subtitles, then you have heard Ryoma Echizen utter this phrase many times, and you will continue to see this in future volumes. The translation used in the anime, which is slightly different from the one in the manga, is "You still have a ways to go". Since Ryoma usually says this when playing a match, this could be interpreted as a sign of believing himself superior to his opponents, which in part is true. However, once one looks beyond Ryoma's superficial cockiness, we discover a character that is much more complex than that, and as the series progresses we get to discover more layers underneath. I have the firm belief that Ryoma is also referring to himself when using "Mada mada dane", encompassing his inability to beat his father and the steps he still needs to take in order to become really strong.

As you can see, this series, which in volume 1 started out OK, but fell a little short of the mark, has improved considerably. In the current volume, there is already a better character development as we get to know more about the Seigaku regulars. The matches against Fudomine for the district finals are exciting and of an appropriate length. The fact that there are side stories besides the actual tennis competition is a definite plus, as is the reminiscing by some characters, like Ryoma's father. This once again, provides us with more information about the environment in which Ryoma grew up and the way in which his father behaved when he was Ryoma's age.
