Thanks for the new chapter. Looks like Ei-Chan is being tossed into the lion's den right off the bat...
chapter 71: you should go to America
chapter 72: Playing tennis in Florida
I like this manga doesn't waste time on useless drama stuff, it does what it pleases. Also cool parents he has...if I said that to my parents they would ask to pay for it myself :P
lol, that was fast, hope the story'll keep evolving at that speed.
Please apply as a redrawer and help imangascans keep up the current pace of releases
Lol for some reason I felt like reading ch 70 again...and that I did, so cute xD
I log once/day and this manga is first option to read .It calms me a lot .
Other words:
Maybe not first manga I like but definitely first to read :P.
iMangaScans, you guys are beasts! Thanks for the new chapters!
Here a sweet little spoiler...

Wow, best wingman ever.
That Kageyama is an hero...
This is where I gloat about my powers of prediction. Gloat, gloat. :D
Looks like Ei Chan needs Hawk eye for that last point
another one already? you guys are monsters...and I love it xD
your welcome, glady you guys are enjoy
Thank you, iMangaScans! Love the manga right now, and love the fast releases so far!
Thanks iMangaScans for all the crazy fast releases
This is crazy. How is iMangaScans keeping up this pace?
Meanwhile, the match is looking bad for our hero. But it's kind of a compliment--Mister #1 guy has noticed Maruo is dangerous and maybe even improving as the match progresses, and has decided to bring out his big guns to finish this as fast as possible before the little guy comes up with anything else.
The key problem here is moral. This guy isn't underestimating Ei-chan, he never mocked him or knocked him, he's serious and apparently ethical. He is in many respects the player Maruo is trying to become. The logic of fiction says he could win, because he's a superior opponent who isn't unworthy. If he was a jerk he'd go down no matter how good he seemed, that's how it works. I'm sure Ei-chan will pull out at least one more good idea, and continue simply improving his tennis over the course of the match. But it might not be enough--this could be one of those matches where he sees how he has to build his skill and what he needs to become and stuff, so this guy will become a rival in the future.
GAH! What a terrible cliffhanger!
nice! - thanks for the fast releases :D - i'm really into this story though i don't particularly like the art ... keep it up (:
Baby Steps? It feels like he just came out of the hyperbolic time chamber, lulz; loving it.
It's a lot better than prince of tennis :)
Although apparently short. The scanlators are really blazing through chapters right now it seems. Thanks iMangaScans!
Ahhh! He's too amazing -- his personality is great.
The storyline's fascinating, too.
The wait for the next chapter shall be torturous.
Nooooo I need more chapters. This manga is my drug
