I said "Around" 6'0. 5'11 is 1 inch away from 6'0. And you can't tell how tall they actually are, because they are "Drawings". Proportions will be changed in certain chapters. And again, like I said, No Japanese 15 year olds will be 6'0. You will be lucky if you see a Japanese person be 6'0 by the time he is an adult. I'd say the average height for a Japanese man would be 5'9/5'10

Poor Japanese. Everyone teases them because they are short.
I think one thing what should have been noticed that when you have this kind of growth spurt (or whatever it is called) you will get awfully clumsy because your bones and muscles don't no longer "fit" togother. Because of that none of the regulars should be that tall because if you grow 20 cm during your summer holiday it will affect your play style. Of course Kaidoh seems to have this hobby to fall flat on his face during games but my points is that shorter people should be better players than those who have just growed at their almost full height. They can move better and everything...
Well my theories about their sudden growing are still the same:
1. Inui's special special drink
2. All of Seigaku regulars are actually over 16-years-old. They have been all just so bad at school that they have had to repeat a year for few times.
Lol. Plus, people who grow quickly have growing pains.
I don't think the Seigaku regulars are supposed to be that old. They're supposed to be pretty good about school. Tezuka is anyway. ^.^ He corrected the teacher in the anime. He's smart! .^_^. *beams*
It's only because he has been at the same class three times already. He starts to remember everything from memory. The teacher who did the mistake was most likely substitute teacher and Tezuka decided to show off. In the end he still didn't manage to get out off middle school.

Lol. Well, if he had memorized the class, he would have passed already. So I'll stick with my theory that Tezuka is smart. ^.^ He's smart, and the teacher made a mistake, so he decided to show off. Poor teacher looked scared of him or something. Lol. Because Tezuka's greatness is so intimidating!! Haha.
Even thought he is able to memorize his class it doesn't mean that he is able to wrote it down in exam. Perhaps he can't write. O.O
So I'll continue teasing Tezuka <3
(Hm. My jokes are getting extreamely lame. I think I'll blame double Swedish lessons for that...)
Hey..... Leave Tezuka alone..... >.< And we know for sure he can write because he's the one that writes the lineup. He also writes the set up for the ranking tournament. Hmph. I'll defend Tezuka's intelligence any day.
When I first saw PoT (episode 17 was where I started) I thought they were all in high school. After hearing Tezuka's deep voice and all the skill these kids have, I never thought they were in middle school. All the talk about the Seniors graduating (and going to college?) I didn't think middle school.
Tezuka/Atobe (12th grade looks 17/18 years old) Team Captain - Senior
Sengoku/Kirihara (11th grade looks 16/17 years old) "Junior" ace = 11th grade
Momoshiro/Kaidoh (10th grade looks 15/16 years old) 2nd year
Echizen (9th grade looks 14/15 years old) 1st year (of high school)
Then alas, they were not in high school and it ruined my thoughts of this anime being realistic. It would be more realistic if it was high school.
Same here, but after the lack of hearing about sophomores, my theory died.
