From Viz:
Ryoma Echizen just joined the Seishun Academy's tennis team, which is known for being one of the most competitive teams in Japan. Its members are incredibly talented, gifted, and athletic. With rigorous and extremely intense practices, the upperclassmen of the team expect the very best from themselves and they expect even more from the new members of the team. While most of the freshmen are on pins and needles hoping they won't get cut from the team, Ryoma Echizen is confident, cool, and collected. Some might even say he's cocky, but at least he's got the skills to back up his attitude. With his virtually unreturnable "twist serve," Ryoma is sure to make the starting team.
Join Ryoma and the other first years, as they train hard, make friends, and try to find a place for themselves on the team. And meet Ryoma's cute but chronically shy classmate Sakuno Ryuzaki. She's got a big crush on Ryoma, but will he ever notice her? Ryoma Echizen is the Prince of Tennis. He may be ready for the Seishun Academy tennis team, but are they ready for him?

i was in love with the anime/manga but the ending sucks!! T_T *cries* the manga/anime was almost perfect, funni, has sport etcetc. its hard to create something amazing with a game of tennis, lol nicely done but the ending shouldn't have been rush for it seems 'cheap' like it was just quickly put together. iunno its just my opinion xD LOL but overall (if the ending wasn't there) 9/10 with ending 5/10

I only read up to volume 7 but it's really good so far.. But for some reason.. this manga will get worse soon. I'm going to give this manga a 10 at the moment since it's so addicting. But when I finish reading this manga, it probably will change 'cause some people are saying this manga gets boring soon.

It's a great sports manga that you can enjoy in the beginning. But it goes bad halfway and grows into a Sports manga that doesn't take itself very seriously with all tennis players getting superpowers. Worse than that, every match feels the same. Some guy (Seigaku or Other team)will start winning 4 games. Its 4-0. THEN THE OTHER GUY WHO HAD HIS HIDDEN TECHNIQUE REVEALS IT AND MAKES THE SCORE BACK TO 4-4. WHAT A COMEBACK. Finally, since the other guty is a little smart and had 4-5 games to study the new technique, he's able to win by a small wargin in the end.

From this point on , Prince of Tennis became a really bad manga to read and not worth buying at all.

Start of manga = 8.5 /10
End of manga = 2 /10

It's nothing like Slam Dunk.

Man I didn't hate it at start but theire is only so little you can do with tennis. Not my cup of tea and it took him 380 chaps to realize he enjoys tennis? Ending sucked completely and I enjoy action shonens a lot more then some tennis with supermoves that bore me out. The cheeziness when he lost his memory made me vomit almost.

Even in the shonen department it loses badly vs titles like DB, OP, Naruto, hitman reborn, hunterxhunter,... And at sports major owns it completely and even eyeshield 21 is a lvl above it, hell if you wanna read some sportsmanga go read most of Adachis works they'll be a hell more deeper and realistic then this overrated series. How people can rate this a 10 is beyond my knowledge. Man I hate my habit of ending each series that I start.

it's so strange that the series is over. i've been reading it for years and now suddenly it's done, it's like wow. the last chapter was okay, it could've been better, i didn't really like the song but i must say it made it different from other endings i've read.

One of the few sports manga that I really enjoyed. At first, it began with realistic tennis games involving possible skills and whatnot, but it eventually grew a supernatural limb somewhere. Really intense suspenseful matches and the like though. The final chapter could have been... Better. Not my taste. Would be nice for a few one-shot stories of what happens afterwards though.
I hate that Viz description up at the top. Sakuno had hardly anything to do in the manga after the first few volumes.

Several friends recommended this one to me saying it was the greatest manga and a must read!! etc etc . . . and while the characters are pretty well drawn, and the first couple of volumes were pretty interesting: it starts to drag and go downhill after a while (as someone else commented: they play tennis... and ... more tennis) : and after a while it just gets really unrealistic (i know it's a manga but cmon : at least TRY and make it a little more believable? dead) . . . it would probably have been better if they didn't drag out the (latest) matches so much and ended the manga sooner (less tennis!)

well, prince of tennis = dragonball + tennis...didn't that 13 year old guy just went super saiyan in a tennis match or something?
Entertaining read. But if you haven't start reading then I recommend you wait till the series to finish before starting because the later volume story is just dragged out for so long, a match need more or less a whole volume to finish.
