Description

A tennis prodigy leads his handsome tennis club to victory at the national tournament.

Four-time consecutive U.S. Junior tournament champ Ryoma Echizen comes to Seishun Academy to further his reign as The Prince of Tennis. His skill is matched only by his attitude--irking some but impressing all as he leads his team to the Nationals and beyond!

The match between Seishun captain Tezuka and Rikkai's Sanada blares on. Sanada takes his captain's advice and attacks Tezuka where he's most vulnerable. Has the captain of Seishun finally met his doom? Next, Kaoru and Sadaharu take on Rikkai's lethal pair. When they target Sadaharu, Kaoru has to pull out his Gyro Laser Beam to save the match. And Ryoma finally arrives at the arena! Unfortunately for Seishun, he's got a wicked case of amnesia.
