Original Art from Konomi sensei’s twitter

Okay, so the other day I was looking at Ryosaku fanarts at Pixiv, and suddenly one of them said “Omedetou! (Congratulations!)” and I was like “Uh? But we already got that picture when Ryosaku was pretty much confirmed, and then I decided to search on twitter and found this on Konomi’s account.

Rough translation since japanese users tend to use a lot of slangs or short words on twitter and it’s really confusing, sorry:

Today is Ryoma kun's 

The theme of the next edition for August that will be published at SQ nation wide it’ll be what every Sakuno chan fan was waiting for♪

Ryoma and Sakuno on a date…!?

It’s a must see♡

҉(ㅅ´ ˘ `)҉ (´・c_・`)

Kyaaaaaaaaaa Ryosaku more canon than ever! Oh God my shipping feelings…! Damn you Konomi sensei, you just took my feelings and made them explode….!

It has been months since I read a NPOT chapter, now the wait until August it’s gonna be like hell, I wanted to see Saku chan for like 4 years, for Federer’s sake!

Guys my ship is canon, my ship is canon! *Cries of happines*

In Japan, Ryosaku was trending topic!


If you want to see the reaction at tt, just go now!

I always wondered for years about this picture, it looked like it was made by Konomi sensei itself. After our ship was sailed now we could find out that it was made by 中田ちき-san, and that there’s nothing less that a “matome” with 40 PAGES!

God I love my ship so much that this gif pretty much explains how I was feeling while seeing it:

Thanks japanese RyoSaku artists for posting complete doujinshis on Pixiv!!!

The TeniPuri episode of Friendship! Effort! Victory! is about to be recorded!

Yes, some time after I announced it was postponed due to backlog issues (read: i didn’t have enough time to make a backlog large enough for my holiday without phoning in this episode), I’ve managed to wrestle myself back round to doing this love letter to sports fans and fujoshi alike, using a plethora of notes and a memory that only really extends as far as the first and last quarters of the title, I’ve got it all back together!

So expect this episode tomorrow, give or take depending on timezone, and get ready, because F!E!V! is back, baby.

(When I release the episode should I put together a cover gallery for TeniPuri? Not like everything ever, but just a bunch of HQ cover scans from WSJ? I think I should)


It’s time for the new episode of Friendship! Effort! Victory!, and as promised it’s the delayed appearance of Prince of Tennis, and despite my being ill and my mic being broken, I’ve managed to crank out the longest episode EVER, talking about what exactly made the series work, its multimedia empire, and the impact of the Fujoshi audience upon it.

Give it a go, you might enjoy it!

And as promised, here’s a cover gallery for the series, albeit one only featuring what covers were in the highest possible quality. I might do another one featuring every other TeniPuri cover that was published, but it’d be much smaller images. All the same, have at it!
