    Hi all,

    During my vacation, I've read some issues of Prince of Tennis. Well, I was not very impressed (I think 'Slam Dunk' is much much better). I am not gonna borrow it anymore but curious about Ryoma's father. What happened to this retired Tennis Genius? Accident? Injury?

    I loved the prince of tennis! I have found the imported box sets and the t.v. show is way different. It more interesting, as in you get to see Ryoma's father play and crush the male reporter in a match. Although, I have not found out what made his father retire but I am sure I will soon. Just to let you know there are 5 imported box sets out there for the T.V. show and there about $24 a piece and its like 27 episodes per box set.

    I've watched upto episode 125. Search PRINCE OF TENNIS and BITTORENT on google. They have them subbed (fansub).

    I'm personally addicted to watching them. Pretty funny stuff.

    Man, I can't recall why his dad stopped playing competitively....I vaguely remember the reporter trying to find out. This was in the earlier episodes. Good question, gonna have to back track and find out when I get a chance.

  4. the reason was that he got bored...he had a bigger challenge in mind..that was raising echizen and dreaming that he would someday surpass him....saw it the episode where nanjiro was in the US..around 120+ sumtin ..not sure though

    yah, I just got done watching it. it's episode 129. nanjiro had beaten everyone out there and decided to accept a new big dream (his son). Supposedly he had to win one more tournament to be the first japanese to be #1 in the world. Time to watch episode 130 ;)

    Doesn't make sense

    Well, I don't get it...it's very lame reason to quit.
    Although I don't play basketball, I think 'Slamdunk' is much better than 'POT', IMO. Thanks anyway! :D

    There is a series of PoT gameboy games, sort of like the series of Pokemon games.

    There are also some PoT PS2 games, which are sold only in Asia.
