Shoujo drama with tennis as subplot

Not a bad manga but not that great either, this is in it's core a story about highschoolers and their coming of age that uses tennis as tool to carry the story forward, which I don't dislike, I prefer the reverse thou, like Baby Steps.
That aside it's a bit too naive, leaving aside how Ide is able to play quite well in almost no time, I particularly dislike how the mangaka sometimes chooses to move the story, examples:
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Hinako has been the manager for 3 years, the teacher himself pretty much tricks her to remain in that function yet Ide can't play for one or two days being lovesick and she gets fired... talk about ridiculous and leads to the second, this idea that a sport is a club teacher is a psychologist and does things as if he knows what the heck he's doing, I don't know if this is a Japanese thing or what but I find it forced and dumb. Then again, the teachers meddling has quite bad consequences and not one bit of the fault is relied on him either...

Character-wise it's interesting, they are a bit more realistic than most chars in other similar mangas and even the seemingly no brain Ide has a deeper side. Still halfway through but unless the author goes down a pathetic line like one char interrupting a wedding ceremony kind of crap, I think it's going good.

This is actually pretty good and I'm loving this to bits

I've read a ton of sports manga at this point but none of them made me extremely happy except this manga.
The story is very funny and uplifting at the same time.
It doesn't solely focus on individual game but it also showcase team tournaments.
And I thought that tennis is a solitary sport but they prove me wrong.
The comradery and warmness of friendship is strong in this one...

Please don't pay attention to the cover!!!
I was also hesistant at first into reading this cause it's a bit unappealing.
It was a huge mistake on my part..
The manga is genuinely good....
The spirit of sport, rivalry and passion is there!!!

I definitely recommend it if you haven't read this yet!!!
You won't be disappointed!!!

a drama...

I like the fact that this is a realistic manga, not some pure gag shoujo manga. I think it is amazing how Ragawa Marimo come up with simple yet deep story. It turns out to be quite dramatic, making me mused with all sort of feelings.

At first, I didn't give too much credit for this manga as I'm actually a fan of shounen manga (needless to say, I'm actually, really really reeeally fond of gag manga). But as I further read the story, I come to fall in love with it. Slowly, but surely. As a matter of fact, I even read the raw (the whole 32 of them) and reread it at least 3 times already. It got into me emotionally.

Sometimes I feel like I've been sucked into the story, and I can't help but holding my breath when the match actually getting serious. (wonder if I'm actually the type to be influenced easily by others... nah, that can't be. I'm quite the picky one.) being the only (for the time being) series that could give me the same nervousness was HxH, and the two of them are like...what, completely in different dimensions!

right, whatever I was blabbering... might as well read it yourself, if you love drama, that is.

A chore

Rating: 7.0 / 10.0
Well... it's not a bad manga. It's readable, and not as unrefined in art as some sports mangas. But I certainly did not enjoy reading this. More like... it put me in a bad mood all frustrated = =.

The art makes all the chars have baby faces, but other than that, it's not horrible at all.

The story well... I dunno what to say. It was fine reading english scans, but after reading the chinese raws for a while... it felt like a chore reading ><. Perhaps it's because of the length? Or maybe cause the chinese translations didn't make much sense at times (I mean the grammar, my chinese is good enough). IDK, but I probably won't be reading this again.

*shrug* with all that said, I'll repeat this again, it's not a bad manga, and it's not as if I disliked it. I didn't feel bored, neither did I feel hatred. But for some reason I just felt extremely frustrated and in result almost as if reading was a job instead of entertainment. I do want to know what's gonna happen next and stuff, but there's nothing to keep my focus anymore ><.

I really like the fact that this manga is not all about tennis. I love that the mangaka focuses on developing her characters. That there's some drama but they're not too heavy, that the tennis matches are always good, on par with other tennis mangas out there like Baby Steps.
Those looking for a good sports manga should read this. biggrin

It's still the same

It starts off so funny and promising ... but nothing more. Until volume 14 all you can feel is exactly like that in vol 1, by which I mean there's no climax to make your heart beat a little faster. Even the humor remains still much the same, which I would describe as of more "cute" than "humorous". The whole story doesn't really focus on tennis but rather on characters themselves, which should've perfectly fit RAGAWA Marimo's realistic sense, but then again been lighten by in-between tennis matches which would soon make me sleepy out of boredom. Overall, this is still a readable manga. I'm impressed but not deeply fall for it.

It's a very different sport manga, especially if you compare it with other manga sports (well... most of them are shonen, unlike this one). It's more to psychological conflicts than the sport itself. But, still the tennis' elements is shown accurately. I love the characters development. Exactly what you expect from the author of Aka-chan to Boku. Seeing the status in Japan, I wonder how the story goes. But, so far... (I've read to volume 7), it's great. I enjoy it, and can't wait to read more ^_^
