BRILLIA----

GODDAMN CLIFFHANGER! MY BUTT IS JUST SITTING JUST AN INCH BEFORE IT FALLS ONTO THE FRIKKIN' GROUND.

Btw, thanks iManga Scans~~

As expected from a manga titled "Baby Steps".

well the mnga flew over all the third set altogether so we can hang around for the last few points now...

As expected from a manga titled "Baby Steps".

Wow... This Cliffhanger... at this moment... ARGHHHH!!!

Oh
Thanks for the new chapter!
Side note, dam you umpire!!!

I have to think that the umpire wrong call was just a plot device cause usually missed calls are really close that guys in the stands can't tell

i am neither a tennis fan nor a sports manga fan. yet this is the most nail-biting manga i know right now. suspense in every chapter.

Pleeeeeease dont let something like slipping in the rain make someone lose/ win.

"This is the end"
No, no it's not.

GODDAMMIT THAT CLIFFHANGER!!! Guoooooo I can't take it!!!!! I NEED MORE!!!!

Oh shit, seriously?!!!!
Man, I gotta watch that match right now!
Thanks for the new chapter!
Side note, dam you umpire!!!

I love the way Eiichirou shrugs the umpire errors off every time. In the anime, at the wrong call in his first match against Nabae he had a much more vocal reaction (which is both more human and at the same time so much no Eichirou...)

and NIshikori got past Djokovic into US open finals.

 

this makes me stop and think.

Wow!  Ei-chan's rolling hot!  Go get 'im, lad!

and NIshikori got past Djokovic into US open finals.

Fun fact: in his youth Nishikori trained in Florida.^^

and NIshikori got past Djokovic into US open finals.

 

this makes me stop and think.

Which zone? The first zone? Or the zone within the zone?

 

;p

THE ULTIMATE ZONE: THE FRIEND ZONE.

UH-OH. Those eyes. I've read enough Kuroko no Basuke to know that that signals he's entered


THE ZONE.

*dundunduuuun*

Which zone? The first zone? Or the zone within the zone?

 

;p

I need more of those moments:

MOAR!

Are my eyes deceiving me?? I GET TO READ ANOTHER CHAPTER OF BABY STEPS IN JUST A DAY?!

Heaven must be upon us.

if you go to the forum, ive listed some good jump shots. There's one from King Roger that makes me cry for its beauty (much of a trick shot actually)...

 

edit: the one at 03:04

 

Goddamn was that a beautiful return!

DOUBLE RELEASE WHOOOHO!!!

UH-OH. Those eyes. I've read enough Kuroko no Basuke to know that that signals he's entered


THE ZONE.

*dundunduuuun*

Cool, hopefully this ends soon

Thanks for the new chapter.

Spoiler

lol dang monfils, that timing to hit the ball at the highest point, accuracy to hit it in such a tight corner and power to just smash that ball into the court!
