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?

Well, I guess everybody has their own opinion. I, however, really enjoy this series. It is unrealistic, but they explain it, and in a way... It makes sense. It's one of my favorite shounen manga and I totally recommend it. The characters are very detailed with each a unique characteristic and habit. They are also quite cute too... It's something that's hard to forget. You can't help but read it over and over again. The anime is also quite good and completely pulls you into the story. If your not a fan of shounen, then you will become one once you read OR watch this manga/anime. If you are, you'll absolutely love it. It's a must read.

I've read the first eight volumes that my library had. It was very good and exactly what I would expect from a sports manga. But I probably won't bother to finish reading the series. In the first 8 volumes they played tennis...oh and oh yeah they played tennis, with hey a little more tennis on the side. And well thats all there seemed to be to the series. The story and the characters didn't really seem to be going anywhere. It's not very interesting to read about a bunch of drawn out matches where you see Ryoma win every time with his inhumanly possible abilities. And the rest of the cast also played a bunch of amazingly awesome and unrealistic tennis matches. The circular plot gets old.
So I'm not sure why there is so much hype around PoT, it good but not great. So I am going to assume it is because the characters are so perfect for use in doujinshi. Since they are all amazing, talented and attractive guys who like to play (tennis) with each other-- play with each other a lot.

i haven't read this manga yet so i guess its not appropriate for me to do a review on this but one time i saw my brother watching the anime so i thought that id give it a try so while watching it, i realized that the story is not really that good and the moves are very unrealistic, i dont see what the fuss is all about on this manga. i dont want to compare it to slam dunk because slam dunk is a legend but slam dunk atleast has very realistic moves even though their heights are very questionable. One last thing, i almost forgot to say that im a real world tennis fan and a hardcore Roger Federer fan, with all that said i guess me reading this manga would make me an idiot now would it?

It's ending soon!

It's funny and I thought it was really good at the start but once you get into the regional tournements, the matches take waaaay too long to bhe over with. Though the chapters in between the matches are really funny so if you read anything of PoT, you MUST read those chapters!

And as many other people said, the moves are very unrealistic. But they're funny and sort of cool...

The matches are too damn long >_> Like, it was very hard for me to sit and watch loooooong matches in PoT. I'm proud to say i had not skipped an PoT episode.

But rewatching...hmmm, really hard to say if i will be rewatching it anytime soon (and believe me, i love rewatching anime i so enjoyed. PoT is half-half. I enjoyed but too long of a match for me).

The manga will come to an end within 11 chapters, lets see how it'll end-- mostly with the fact that there's 3 or 4 more matches to go within so little time.

Well... its entirely unbelievable, and one of those things you have to read at 3am to like, since its so simple. I guess its alright, once you get down to it, but its so.... puffed up, its stupid. I mean, some of those moves defy the laws of physics, not just gravity. XD Some of it is amusing, and I like the main characters personality, but really, its not something I would recommend.

It is my one and only shonen manga and I only read the first 5 volumes (because I collect so many manga series, that I had no time for a shonen manga). But I like itin spite of that.
