Already airing is a Chinese version of Prince of Tennis Live Action but instead of a movie it is a drama.
The plot and storyline is pretty much the same except the names are obviously in Chinese. For example instead of Ryoma it's Long Ma.



I'm just going to use the Movie to compare with the Drama.

Hongo Kanata played Echizen Ryoma in the Japanese Movie
Qin Jun Jie plays Echizen Ryoma in the Chinese drama series.

I reckon that Hongo looks way more like Echizen then Jun Jie. I haven't seen it so I can't say whose acting or which version is better but just by looking at it I think that the Japanese one was better even if it wasn't a drama series.

Many of the actors which played the characters looked a lot like the actual manga/anime characters in the movie but in the drama I don't think they look like them at all.

But I think I will still give it a try because I reall enjoyed the manga, anime and movie.

What does everyone else think about the series or the characters etc.

Hm. Comparing the casts, I'd say on looks the Japanese cast was better. However, on acting, I think they were around equal, though Ryoma's acting was better in the Chinese version, cause the Japanese Ryoma was, eh... he moved around too much when talking so his body actions made him look nervous, even if his face said otherwise.

Where to find it?

...Youtube, look up Qasther prince of tennis in the search window. It's labeled as being taiwanese, but don't bother with that; every page has a review about that.
It's different enough that you kind of have to take it out of the context of the show, because it was set in a college instead of a middle school, so some things are changed but its still very good.
The only thing I had trouble with is that the names are the Chinese names, so aside from Ryoma, it's hard to tell whose who by there names.

Seigaku = Qing Xue
Ryoma = Long Ma
Tezuka = Gou
Fuji S. = Zhou Zhu
Oishi = Shi Yi or Di Shi
Eiji = Ju Wan
Momo = Tao Cheng Wu
Kaidou = Hai Tang
Taka = Chun Long
Inui = Zhen Zhi
Fuji Y. = Zhou Yu
Sakuno = Lin Ying
Tomoka = Xiao Peng
Ann = Qu Xing
The freshman trio are all one person = Huang Jue Wai

The rest you can tell just by watching.

I personally really enjoyed all of the prince of tennis franchises
the movie was great
the chinese drama was also fairly good
but the only bad thing for me is that Eiji was portrayed not as good as i hoped he would. He was my fave character but they made him kinda really mean and Ryoma was never that rude in all the adaptions in made me kind of mad
otherwise i loved it!
