    It's absolutely TEZUKA. But FUJI's more handsome though.

    If tezuka can use Hyakuren Jitoku no Kiwami i think that tezuka can probably use muga and with that he can use Kagerou Zutsumi so fuji last counter is nothing for him :P

    Fuji. Once Fuji uses The Gatekeeper, Tezuka Zone will no longer be useful because even if the ball goes to Tezuka's way, he won't be able to hit it over the net plus, it will eat the spin Tezuka puts in the ball to make it go back to him in the first place. Fuji is not a power player, instead he uses spin to maneuver the match; therefore Hyakuren Jitoku no Kiwami will triple Fuji's original spin and Fuji can counter that with Kagerou Zutsumi. And will Zero no Shiki go over the net against The Gatekeeper?

    I would have to say Tezuka. Of course, Tezuka's my favorite. ^.^ But I think Tezuka would win. Because Tezuka already beat Fuji's first three counters with the Tezuka Zone. It might be a little harder after his counters evolved. But then again Tezuka's Hyakuren Jitoku no Kiwami could probabaly seal off Fuji's counters because it sends back the same spin/power twice as hard right? So all Fuji's counters wouldn't work because they use spin

    i think fuji is stronger, because if fuji uses the final counter, tezuka's ball will not go over the net~!

    I think those who voted for Fuji based on what we've seen so far are missing two points:

    - Hyakuren Jitoku no Kiwami practically doubles the effectiveness of the shot and returns it. Tezuka doesn't just swing the racket randomly and get double the spin and power every time. It's a move that builds on his experience to return anything sent at him with the exact right swing, racket angle, timing and friction to send double the result at the opponent. You can imagine how much experience as well as tennis sense he needs to have to be able to deal with anything sent his way, which is why it deserves to be called the "Pinnacle of Hard Effort". With that, I think he could return the Gatekeeper of Hekatonchieres with a shot that won't even touch the net when returned by Fuji (normally) ; it will always go straight to the ground and then spin back like Zero-Shiki. >_<;

    - Tezuka might not even need to "open his own gate" to defeat the "gatekeeper" (pun not intended at first, but I liked it so I added the quotations. Don't look at me like that.). The only player we've seen who uses more spin in his play style than Fuji is Tezuka. Tezuka Zone shows that he's mastered all sorts of spins (as he uses it against balls coming from all angles), and that he can add a very high amount of spin (opponents would aim strong shots at the corner and they would still return to Tezuka). Zero-Shiki adds so much backspin that the ball doesn't bounce, and backspin is the most effective type of spin against the gatekeeper (since it counteracts the move's own backspin). Since Shiraishi is getting close to hitting the ball over the net (though I hope it ends in him failing or in Fuji just reverting to his other cool moves to beat him), Tezuka should have an easier time since he has better spin control.

    Having said that, that does not decide the match in Tezuka's favor, because Fuji is not just about the Gatekeeper of Hekatonchieres. He's not even defined by the other cool moves we've seen so far. He's about the near limitless potential he has that makes him raise his level to surpass every opponent he's faced so far.

    So in my opinion, the result of this matchup would be impossible to predict. Based on apparent abilities so far, Tezuka would win (I won't go into this because it would take a while), but I can't really think of what strength Fuji might show, or Tezuka for that matter (just when we though that he was already too strong, it turns out he had a move like Hyakuren as a grade schooler @_@; ). I think a match between them would probably show us what one of them can really do, and almost all the other can do.

    In any case, they've both always been on my all-stars lineup, and I don't think that's changing.

    tezuka is still #1 if Fuji really is better than him, he wouldnt have (spoiler) lost against shirashi to make it even worse Fuji lost in his top form... i dont really like tezuka, i like fuji better as a character... but we all know tezuka is better...

    I remain in awe of Fuji's talent and how he has evolved. But I am holding on to Tezuka to send his own shockwaves and I want to see how's its like when his "gates" are open.

    You're forgetting the fact that Fuji came back from a 5-0 triple match point. The fact that fuji lost can be explained by: the fact that Ryoma should be the only one that doesn't lose a single offical match; Takeshi Konomi wants (or at least I think so) Fuji to win at the finals, so he couldnt scrape a winning at the semis; Fuji loosing gets Shitenhouji a win [{(DUH!)}], so that in the following matches Seigaku's gonna have some pressure on them, strangely Fuji couldn't respond to Shiraishi's net balls that were used continually after he found out how to "counter" the gatekeeper, they skipped a full game; and Fuji never stopped using the fifth counter. Why didn't he? He could have scored with his other 4 counters, three of them improved, one of them kickass as it is (maybe there's a second phase to it?). He could have put up a better fight with Hohou Gaeshi, Kirin Otoshi and Hakuryuu (Shiraishi couldn't react to them the first time that Fuji used them, HELL, he couldn't react to hakurryu the second time!). Shiraishi's perfect tennis stopped working the second Fuji went berserk, so without those damn net balls he would have won that game. Get my point? *not an intimidating tone*.

    There's something else I forgot to explain: If the only way for Shiraishi to counter GKoH was hitting the net, why in the name of god didn't Fuji start playing at it? He could have easily surpassed Shiraishi from the net, If he managed a net ball, a fast drop shot or cross shot would have done it. And Fuji HAD to notice this, because Shiraishi had to do a minimum of 11 net balls to win the game.
