    I just finished watching episode 12. Haven't read all the comments, because I don't want to spoil episode 13 (although I've read it, I'm still wondering how they'll reconcile the manga-anime differences).

    I'm somewhat disappointed in episode 12. There are just way too many technical inaccuracies, like Oishi receiving Otori's Neo-Scud serve twice in a row, or Eiji serving from the same court on two consecutive points.

    Then there's the new formation ... which the anime certainly made a more understandable (I didn't quite get it in the manga) -- but which also reinforces just how ridiculous the premise is >_<. I mean, using that formation essentially turns the Shishido-Otori side in to a single's match against a doubles pair. They'd have to run twice as much and twice as far ... that's a pretty poor tactical decision. And what's with Oishi being confused during Eiji's service -- you know there's a pre-determined player who is supposed to return that shot.

    I was really looking forward to the part where Ryoma snaps his fingers and says Atobe's line instead -- the moment that really is the crowning glory of this entire match-up -- but boy was a let-down. Ryoma looked so disproportionate and just plain childish here -- and that contrasts incredibly poorly with the sheer attitude he oozed with his manga pose.

    And this leaves us with only one episode to animate the entire Ryoma-Atobe match. That's just too ... *sigh*. It's a pity. It really needs to be at least two episodes =\.

    And from the preview ... it seems that Ryoma isn't using the Myuga, but reverting instead to the "eye" thing he had going in the match against Sanada. Cyclone Smash makes its reappearance as well. Ah well ... steeling myself up for some more disappointment.

    I liked how they still failed to show Sanada using "Immovable like Mountain" on Atobe in OVA 13.

    And having watched episode 13, I have to say ...

    I'm relieved. So relieved. They just dropped the TV silliness, gave Ryoma back his Myuga and played straight by the manga. Of course, that makes it internally inconsistent with his reactions when Tezuka used it in this OVA series, making it confusing for those who watch the anime exclusively -- but I guess, among the Japanese audience, people who are fans enough to fork out the dough to purchase the OVAs would be fans enough to be following the manga.

    Ryoma also uses his "Cyclone Smash"-like move in Myuga state, but no one cried out the name of the move, unlike all the other techniques he used, making it open to interpretation whether he used the TV series' Cyclone Smash or Sanada's Fuu Rin Ka Zan.

    I also have to say ... the match didn't feel too, too rushed. It could have stood to be somewhat longer, with more of the match detail they dropped, but I can see that two episodes would have required slowing down the pace with filler (like the Tezuka-Atobe match). The only two moments I really missed when watching this episode were 1) Atobe asking Sanada about the Myuga state, and the latter replying that the only thing he couldn't copy was the Tezuka Zone, and 2) a proper lead-up to the Hametsu e no Rondo (which just felt too abrupt in the anime).

    Yeah, there were a lot of things in ova 13 that I didn't like. Am I the only one who noticed the same serve animation when Atobe served?

    im not sure if ryoma used the cyclone smash,wasnt it fire from the fu rin kaa zan.think about it, we dont know how are the "fire" movements because we only saw it in the manga( we cant animate it).... i think that it was fire, Bcause the ovas are more based on the manga than the anime is..... so in conclusion, ryoma cant use the cyclone smash in the ovas Bcause there is no cyclone smash in manga.

    They'll probably do both Shitenhouji and Rikkai in that one. They aren't starting too soon so they'd save the money by doing the OVA on both.

    Lol. Yeah. I noticed it. In the Jr. Invitational Team filler bit, Atobe's Tanhauser serve had its own special animation. I wonder why they didn't just use that one.
