Ooh! I saw a Prince of Tennis TV Drama just recently. According to DramaWiki, it aired late July last year. I just found that out now, though.
Prince of Tennis is one of my favorite manga/anime (even though I prefer the anime, over the manga). The protagonist of the story, Echizen Ryoma (or in this case, Long Ma), has a little bit of a character like he often compares things in America, where he grew up, etc. But I guess this same thought applies to most people too, like my dad who always go, “In Hongkong… we do this and that…” and “In Taiwan, it’s like this and that…” as well as my old Korean bosses who goes “In Korea….” all day long. Anyway, The storyline of it revolves around this said tennis prodigy and how he develops personality-wise and skill-wise through out. I kinda like storylines like this, despite it’s being a sporty type and all (I kinda don’t like sporty things, soo… ^^;).
I’ve seen the first couple of episodes. It isn’t pretty much exactly like the manga or the anime, like, where did Arai go? And why was it Kaido he met at first? Also, was Oishi that hot? LOL! Still, I’m actually expecting a lot from this series.
Oh, and a few bishie eye candies for everyone~
First from the left: That’s Fuji, so concerned with his brother~ :3 and with eyes opened too. XD
Second: Fuji and Tezuka
(the hotest yaoi pair), same old, same old.
Third: Oishi (top), who is now 10x hotter than usual; Kaido (with bandana, duh) and Eiji, but he doesn’t look like MY Eiji! D= Kikumaru beam!
Btw, if in case you’re interested with it as well, you can find the subs at DramaPuri.
