Synopsis

The Prince of Tennis, Vol. 2 by Takeshi Konomi

Ryoma Echizen, the Prince of Tennis, has just enrolled at Seishun Academy after spending several years in America winning 4 consecutive US Junior Tournaments. His cool confidence raises the hackles of a few older students on the tennis team, and they challenge him to a game - but none of them even comes close to his skill and level of play. Now intramural matches to determine the starting members of the team for the upcoming city tournament are about to begin, and even though the rules don't allow 7th graders to play in tournaments, the captain has arranged for Ryoma to enter the ranking matches. Does he have what it takes to truly deserve the title Prince of Tennis? Find out in this amazing tennis manga!

About the Author

A member of the tennis club at school, Konomi submitted his work to Weekly Shonen Jump after graduation from university and was debuted in a special edition of the magazine in 1993 with TETSUJIN SEKAI ICHI KATAI OTOKO. In 1997, his COOL ~ RENTAL BODYGUARD manga was serialized in Weekly Shonen Jump, followed by THE PRINCE OF TENNIS in 1992. Because of THE PRINCE OF TENNIS, the number of children in Japan who have taken up tennis as a sport has increased exponentially. An anime version of THE PRINCE OF TENNIS was created in 2001, and is still going strong.
