Question from a manga forum

I saw this today when I was looking to see if the new chapter was up for PoT. Someone asked "can someone explain the prince of tennis to me? Why do they all care so much about high school tennis?" this got me wondering how my friends would explain the prince of tennis to a non-fan.

Or, if it is even possible to explain. :)

Well, the way I would probably do it would be:

PoT(I of course would say it out...) is about this kid, Echizen Ryoma that transfers to Seishun Gakuen, a middle school that's known for its tennis. Echizen has this crazy guy for a dad that used to be an awesome tennis player but got injured, now he looks at swimsuit magazines all day and plays with his Himalayan cat. With the help of Echizen, the Seigaku tennis team kicks everyone's ass and wins the National Tournament, with little help from his crazy father who causes Echizen to lose his memory...

isn't that it in a nutshell?(a very small nutshell)

First of all, it's Middle School Tennis! And second...they're boys and it's a sport. That explains why *they* do it. Now...why do *we* read it? That's a much harder question!

(It's data...of course I'm using my Inui icon!)

My way: watch it for yourself, and then you'll know it. XD
