Something just hits me: What are the chances that Maruo will partner up with Kanda for Men's Doubles? Of course Maruo already has Nacchan for Mixed Doubles, but I think Kanda would be a good candidate for Men's Doubles with Maruo.

He probably doesn't even want her. He's probably just annoyed that everyone likes/loves eichiro despite him being the "superior" tennis player.

 

 

The hints are there, all the way from the beginning (3 chapters ago), including his comments about him being in an all boys school, living in an all boys dorm, which was his reason for coming to play with her in the first place.  That comment alone shows that he's desperate and would take any girl.

 

I do agree that Kanda is a bit annoyed at Maruo(and annoying himself), and honestly, I thought he would be more friendly, but I guess this is the "Rival building" stage, even though Maruo's technical Rivals are Ike and Takuma...

 

Oh well...  Not like Kanda can compete with Maruo's Harem anyways.  Now Ike and Takuma might be able to take Maruo on in that respect though... Especially Ike.

YESSSSS NAT-CHAN!!!! BEST GIRL FTW!!!!! 
 
Sucks for you Marcia, no one wants a bratty annoying gf... Except maybe desperate Kanda.

I somehow feel like Marcia is a cuter and a more willful than Nat-chan, and it feels like she'd also have a better chemistry with Maruo.. But we all know where the story is going to go with Marcia, she'll be rejected. :(
 
Marcia best waifu!


Sure let's throw away tons of legitimate character development to mash together a seventeen year old with a just turned 14 year old who LIVES IN A DIFFERENT COUNTRY.

oh god what if kanda and maruo match up in this tournament and have another 30 round match?

'Check raw'... um, typesetter-kun? that's not supposed to be kept in. Also, in chapter 274, I'm pretty sure Marcia is saying Ecchan has already been acknowledged by the other two, not the other way around, and that she has yet to acknowledge his court skills.

ye i thought it was strange. tho it could also be that Marcia doesn't feel like she's being taken seriously as a player, maybe?

Maruo is in his pheromon prime. Youd better take advantage, it wont last
