The prince of tennis (DVD)
18 May 2007 | by (Singapore) – See all my reviews

I know this is a popular anime or comic in Japan or maybe other places too but when watching the anime, I felt it was quite slow, with slow moving hits. I never read the comic too. So when watching this live-action movie, I had no idea what I am for. I enjoyed the movie, I like the effects the movie used when hitting the tennis ball. I had fun! I had no idea that this would be interesting, now I know why it is popular in Japan. I heard some people say that the live-action movie did not follow the anime or the comic, hard to say but you try watching some live-action movies adapted from the comic or either the anime, they cannot follow exactly the story or the looks of the characters. I always watch live-action movies adapted, it is great fun. After watching this, I am hoping for a part two, I never read the comic but I know that the director still have a lot of things to film. Maybe they are working on it or the ratings were low so they decided not to make another one.

Either you are a fan of prince of tennis or a newcomer, you should watch it and from the effects, it totally blast me off by the way they are playing. Now the Japanese are making almost all their comic into live-action. Some live-action movies are coming and they look great. Should they make a part two? Depending on the appeal of fans. I had great time watching this so it may suit up to your taste. You can catch the DVD in Singapore.
