Next season - what to expect?
Here goes the list of players that will still compete on the next grade / year:
Takuya Nomura (?)
Jyosei Shonan (insert nod here)
Soo... how do you think the next season will pan out? If there's any of course.
By assuming Echizen doesn't go to America and we'll have something new to watch from Japan (Captain Tsubasa-like) the Seigaku regulars would be something along the lines of Echizen, Momoshiro, Kaido, Arai, Ikeda, Hayashi and someone else.
However, I like to think Kato and Mizuno will grow up to form an effective doubles pair. And while I'm bored and I have nothing else to do, other crazy ideas pop up on my mind. Here I go:
- Mizuki leaves St Rudolph and so Yuuta Fuji leaves; ends up in Fudomine to fill the empty place. Kamio is now the captain and Ibu the vice-captain, both of whom are much better than last year because of hard physical training during the summer holidays to take care of their strenght troubles. In the Kanto finals, Fudomine faces off against Seigaku. Seigaku loses both doubles, but goes on to win all singles. (Possibility would be Momoshiro edging Kamio by a little - it's perfect since there's that Ann story between them - then Kaido beating Yuuta roughly again and Echizen beating Ibu easily for the win)
- Other possibility, which I'd really LOVE, was Seishun offering scholarships to Kamio and Ibu strenghtening their squad. Those two deserve success and Konomi ain't be giving it to them if they stay on Fudomine. They'd probably be slated to play doubles though. I think Kamio would do a perfect captain for Seigaku, since Echizen isn't the captain kind.
- I've also thought a bit about this - Kirihara doesn't have the Three Demons on Rikkai anymore so his reason to stay there is no more; he wants to move to a team that can challenge for the national title and moves to Hyotei, and with Hiyoshi, Kabaji and Otori they form something that could definitely out-play Hyotei.
- As for Fudomine, I love them and I'd hate to seem them disbanded but if my other dream of watching Kamio and Ibu on Seigaku then I guess the remaining guys would go play for other teams. I think that'd make Tachibana be proud of them - and let's admit Fudomine won't go far as they are.
- St Rudolph would be just about Yuuta, I think they'd disappear and Yuuta would go play for some other team - if not Fudomine like I have above, then Yamabuki would be reasonable. I can't picture him playing for Hyotei (too strict) or Seigaku (Shusuke's shadow) though.
- Yamabuki are looking good, with the question mark over Muromachi, some good doubles skill from Kita and Taichi with a great margin for improvement that will probably occur. I wouldn't be surprised to see other renowed players like Yuuta Fuji or Fudomine regulars join them too.
- Midoriyama I have no idea as I haven't really read that part and Jyosei Shonan are an anime failure that everyone hates and should be wiped.
- Rokkaku could be a strong team next year with grown up kids helping Amane and Aoi.
- Rikkai would be an average team full of new faces and Shitenhouji would be all about Tooyama. Maybe they'd get some re-strenghtening, but they don't look like it.
- Higa seems like one team to forget as they were all sporadically picked up by Kite. A very out of standards generation for them.
Sorry if it's boring, but I love PoT enough to think about such things. XD Anyone with opinions?
There's already a topic that's similar to this one. ^.^ Go here.
Unfortunately, I don't think there will be a second season.
Captain Tsubasa lives, lives and lives. They started as 12-year olds and now after like 20 years of manga they're pros.
Maybe by reducing the number of remarkable teams like I said (get the 2nd and 1st years all together in certain teams and have few or no new players) would be good, because it'd leave time to follow BOTH these championships and the old favorites intro to highschool.
arent you forgetting kenya and saizen????
Aren't they 3rd Years? I remember reading somewhere that the entire Shitenhoji, Tooyama aside, was about to graduate.
I don't know about Kenya and Zaizen. I might look it up later. But yeah.... The majority of people are third years. I don't know if I would read PoT once all the third years are gone. I'd rather follow the third years to high school. ^.^ That would be every interesting. The third years are first years in high school. You might want to go read the other threads. There are some other opinions in there.
It's too many unknown whole threads for one little mind. :S I'll get it with time!
Lol. Okay. I'm just warning you in case you were thinking about going to other threads and posting new topics. You could get banned for not searching through the threads before making a new one. Plus, you should see other people's opinions.
I flew around some pages of threads, and didn't find any which title was named after predictions for next season.. so there I went. :P
Psh. You can't follow them to high school. Then they wouldn't play... whatever it is you call the sport they play. Because of exams. Sanada himself mentions that the regulars of Rikkai from the previous years who went onto high school lost most of their talent due to exams and stuff. Hence, why Akaya was able to beat so many of them during a practice match.
Which, if you think about it, makes more sense. The abilities of tennis goes through much changes in an average person's life. Let's use Horio as an example.
Birth: No knowledge of tennis.
Infancy: No knowledge of tennis.
Early School: No knowledge of tennis.
Elementary School: 2 years of tennis; tennis ability grows to the point where you can hit a can full of rockets by luck.
Middle School: Gain basics in first year, along with experience godhood of the third years. By second year capable of destroying a tank. By third year stronger than any martial artist in the world (save the ones that play tennis).
High School: Exams come up, tennis skills begin to go down. You can now branch off into several paths.
- Pro: Heads off to play tennis professionally. Requires three more years in middle school in order to gain the basics of tennis again. Eventually capable of hitting a nuclear missle to the moon. Most likely ends up dying in a tennis match after 2 years of experience as a pro.
- College: Gives up tennis and goes to college, becoming an businessman. Eventually ends up working as a sidekick for a tennis player for 2 years. Dies after being stabbed by a hooker with a grudge.
- Causal: Goes to college while occasionally visiting middle school. Manages to balance both sports and school, and later on is capable of defending self from normal tennis players. Ends up dying after choking on a piece of sushi.
- Bum: Doesn't go to college and middle school and instead focuses on trying to increase tennis talent by self. Ends up losing repeatedly in a period of 2 years and ends up living in the streets. Ironically lives really long.
As you can plainly see, middle school determines your life as a pro tennis player. You NEED middle school. Or you die.
