I love PoT and I do enjoy the musicals. Though I must admit that the live action movie was only so-so in my opinion. Some of the actors for ceratin characters (for example Kikumaru) I didn't like and the same goes for the musicals. Though there was a musical cast Kikumaru who sooo looked the part I wished they had used that actor instead.

Okay yeah, the it wasnt the best reproduction of PoT. But what else are you supposed to expect? Look at the crazy moves done in the anime or manga; you're not gonna get that in real life. Of course there'd have to be special effects. But I do get the point that it wasn't done in the best way possible. Some of the actors didn't seem like they fit the roles right, but overall, it was decent. Oh, and FYI, the actor that played Tezuka is half Spanish half Japanese. So yeah..

:) I love him. I especially love hearing him ramble on and on in English. So adorable.

...have you ever read the manga or watched the anime? You're seriously telling me that you don't believe either of them exaggerate actions at all?


yes it does and i hate those parts but this movie had a bit more ok exxageration than the anime or the manga But still the animated movie holds the number 1 spot for the most exxagerated PoT work eva

I suggest reading the rest of the manga. Neither the anime nor the movie cover half of what's in it.

People seriously stop posting just for the sake of getting CR points. If you haven't heard of an anime, then don't post.

I think that the Prince of tennis live-action would just be somewhat of a failure. I watched it because of the cool tennis moves and I'm pretty sure that you can't find just any random actor who happens to be a tenns pro. I'm also sure that none of them will be able to hit the ball around the net.

They didn't. It was all special effects.

I'm only glad that this was a movie and wasn't an attempt at a series. They've gotten it out of their systems now and I expect no more filth from them.

That's taking it a bit far. I don't see why people have so much animosity towards this movie. Of course it's over-the-top. Have you ever seen the anime or read the manga? What were you expecting?

Because of the anime/manga content, I never expected them to make it into Live Action.

As far as image goes, I've seen PoT cosplayers that looked more like their anime counterparts. Fans of the manga might appreciate it more. Personally I adore the anime and couldn't bring myself to enjoy the movie.

As have I. However, for the majority of the characters, they just used one of guys who had played them in the musical, most likely because this was how a lot of fans has come to associate them.
