    I thought the whole umbrella scene when Tezuka came back from his hospital was excessive but I liked the rest of the episode. I actually liked the whole reflection thing going on during the match because we saw the making of some awesome rivals. That episode was probably the only thing not in the manga that I wish came true. Its disappointing that Fuji doesn't even come near Tezuka.

    >.< Yeah.... I don't know what the animators were thinking when they did that. It was just cheesy.... And they should have known that that could cause people to squeal for yaoi. Other than that, I thought the episode was decent. Why do people insist on putting "love" where it doesn't exist?

    I'll answer your question with another one: why do people try to put love in a purely sports manga?

    I don't know. Maybe to give the plot more aspects? *shrug* I don't mind love as long as the author intended it.

    It's not there so they want it. I'm just talking from my point of view though- I feel the need to look for an OTP in every shonen. It just feels like a more complete package: action, interesting characters plus their development, plot device, and an OTP for people like me to ship. PoT has everything except for a pairing, not that it's important, but I want one. ^^

    Interesting question, until you take into account that whatever these people are playing can no longer be called tennis. XD

    EDIT: Forgot to add a question, as it seems to be a trend. Why do people consider PoT to be a sports manga?

    Besides, Tezuka can be paired up with that lady from Germany. It just doesn't fit with the manga...
    You stole my words!

    I'm a shoujo fan and i like relationship-oriented series...so i tend to have a more romantic perspective of stories (whatever genre they are). I don't think i'm changing the plot or the characters, i'm just doing my own interpetation of canon.
    Ex: Inui and Kaidoh seem to understand and respect each other pretty well
    ...some fans may think the're friends...and that's fine (fits with the plot)
    ...some fans may think they could be developing romantic feelings...and that's also fine (fits with the plot).

    I wonder why some people here think we are turning gay "perfectly straight" guys. Yeah...Konomi-sensei didn't say/imply those kids are gay, but he didn't say/imply they're entirely straight either; and no, heterosexuality isn't "default" (gay discrimination anyone?).
    And..come on! in the anime (and the musical), yaoi fanservice is blatant. I know it isn't the original story, but the author doesn't seem to disagree with the idea...i think he's pretty happy counting the millions of yens that shoujo/yaoi fangirls give him.

    PS1: I don't like TezukaxFuji (or viceversa). But i do like other PoT yaoi pairings.
    PS2: Crack!pairings aren't to be taken seriously, you know...just like Crack-chibi anime episodes.

    ^That stuff I can understand a bit. The Shitenhouji couple was undeniably gay and I can see how the Inui/Kaidoh relationship is questionably close (personally, I don't buy it) and even the Oiishi/Kikumaru relationship a bit....

    And Maggeh, I think POT is a sports manga because the plotline of POT until the Rikkai match had moves that were at least concievable. It wasn't until we started seeing any of the SoSAs, Devil states, total synchro, Lion power(whatever Tachibana had), or people nearly dying in tennis matches that we could even question that POT was a pure sports manga. With these elements, I guess a more accurate description of POT's genre is fantasy-sports.

    Lol. It started with something that was similar to the game that we in the 21st century call tennis. Then it became something that was no longer what should be called tennis.
