Long anime journey ends?
Last of the Last.
Prince of Tennis - the first anime I watched.
Manga ended last year, and this 2 eps aired late January 2009(and I only remembered this today XD).
Since 1999 to 2008! Can you believe it!
Just like 2 years ago, I did the exact same thing by posting PoT YouTube videos on this blog so I can load them all in one page X) I know, caused the page to take at least 5 minutes to load XD That was until I decided to buy the DVD's. And I got addicted. You know what that means, other than eating and sleeping, I was watching PoT for 2 weeks or so. Lol.
After that I depended entirely on YouTube for the OVA's which comes only once in a few months =/
You probably won't find it very interesting if you watch the final eps, but the first ep got me hooked on this series. That cocky, short and prodigious young boy who quickly defeated the upperclassmen in tennis caught my attention. Heh. Ryoma alright.(actually Ryoma reminds me of Fann: snarky, smart-ass, and damn adorable XDXD) Then came the other players from the school team, and then another couple more schools. It was always interesting to see them battle, from tournament to tournament! Rawr!
No forgetting their lifestyle and the variety of characteristics outside the tennis court, chibi episodes etc. I enjoyed it.
Soundtrack was uber catchy as well. I often listen to it while running the treadmill XD
Here's one of the Chibi Eps:
