“We’ve been together for 10 years, so next 10 years, next 20 years, let’s stay together, ‘til the day where we can see forever.” — SEIGAKU Seiyuus, TENIPURI FESTA 2011 in commemoration of the Prince of Tennis anime 10th anniversary
The official records show that Yukimura Seiichi has won every game he's ever played. Moreover, not a single game has been taken from him. For his overwhelming victories, he was nicknamed..."The Child of God".
THE EMPEROR. Proud. Unyielding. Powerful. That is Sanada Genichirou. There were two reasons why I adore this man. First was how he, with the absence of his captain, Yukimura, during the early part of the series, strictly leads the champions, Rikkaidai, and upholding Yukimura’s principle: “Defeat is unforgivable.”. And just when you think he’s already way too strict with his members, you’ll learn that he’s even harder to himself. Asking his members to slap him when he lost to Ryoma, refusing to accept anything besides championship, sealing his techniques just so he could defeat Tezuka, helping Ryoma recover his memories so that the Seigaku rookie could properly have a match against Yukimura because he believes that is the way of the emperors…the list goes on. His ways could be considered to be too severe but such strong convictions at his age is something rare and should be admired. Also, he could be very hilarious…without even trying.
