    I don't think Nanjiro would use such a technique (pinnacle of perfection) on a kid. Even if Ryoma tel his father not to go easy on him, Nanjiro is still too strong to beat Ryoma.
    Yeah, sadly, the votes seems to be affected by the latest match.

    It's no surprise that the results are going to be affected by the latest match. The way we should see people is the way they are now; not how they were a year ago or so. If we did that everyone would be like 'oh, if it was 2 months ago Fuji would destroy Tezuka' and so forth. Sadly, we can't keep living in the past, like how Fuji was undefeated in singles (hooray for him losing), it's all about what they are now.

    Lol. Who knows. Maybe Nanjirou showed Ryoma the Pinnacle of Perfection once or something. Nanjirou seems like the type to show it off at least once.

    Don't think so Nanjiro would use it on Ryoma.
    Nanjirou always says that Ryoma's style of tennis is a copy of him. So, if Nanjirou showed Ryoma once, then Ryoma might grasp the technique after some exercise.
    Also, remeber Ryoma first played against Tezuka? Ryoma got so excited that even Nanjirou realised it. If Nanjirou really used pinnacle of perfection against Ryoma, surely Ryoma would be as excited as ever everytime he plays against Nanjirou.

    Isn't that what Nanjirou wanted, though? He said that sending him to Seigaku was good for him. He was glad that Ryoma was motivated to play and get better.

    Umm, I guess so. Nanjirou fear that Ryoma is picking tennis without any interest in it. I guess the first reason why Ryoma play tennis is because of his dad. Ryoma faces someone so powerful everyday that he lost every single match. Ryoma just want to become stronger in order to be able to beat his dad.
    After the match with Tezuka, I guess Ryoma did find a new direction. You can say that Nanjirou's objective has been reached.

    Yeah. I kinda liked that. I think after Ryoma lost to Tezuka, he seemed more determined and a little less cocky. Without the cocky attitude, I kinda like Ryoma.

    Yeah the loss to Tezuka was an EXCELLENT development for Ryoma. But it was not just determination, Ryoma had to learn that his play style is the same as his fathers and until he created his own style he would never beat his father. There was also another reason which Tezuka engraved in Ryoma's mind. When he ask's Ryoma why he plays tennis, Ryoma says "I have someone I want to beat" (referring to his dad). But Tezuka jumps right in and tells him that when you beat that person what will you have left? This was the most important development for Ryoma. It basically gave Ryoma a career instead of just beating his dad and quitting.

    Tezuka showed Ryoma that he should aim not just for his dad but all great tennis players. Ryoma understands what Tezuka says and decides to "aim much higher".

    Umm, I guess so. Anyway, this is just our guess. But the reality does seem to go in our speculation. After Tezuka's lecture, Ryoma plays his game more seriously, I mean Ryoma became a bit less picky and focus more on Seigaku's victory. Ryoma is aiming to become Seigaku's pillar.
    In short, Tezuka is a real good buchou and player. He is Seigaku's 1st, doubtless.

    Yup. ^.^ Tezuka is such a good buchou! He broke through Ryoma's overconfidence and cockiness. I think he's better than Ryoma, too, but that wouldn't make a good ending if someone was better than the main character. ;_; Or maybe Konomi-sensei will leave it open ended and just imply that Ryoma will get better. That way Tezuka doesn't have to lose. (That's what I'm hoping)
