A few days ago, Takeshi Konomi tweeted a drabble of sorts featuring both Ryoma and Sakuno! Rough translation of the said tweet below (thanks so much to @that-yellow-flower translating this!)

Ryoma-kun: Hey, Sensei, did you come and get a fortune slip this year? Konomi: Ah, now that you say it… 
Ryoma-kun: For our sake, please aim for four consecutive Excellent Luck!!
Konomi: Fufu Ryoma-kun, do you know a good shrine ♪
Ryoma-kun: Uhh… w,well
Ryoma-kun: … but there seems to be a lot of Terrible Luck there
Sakuno-chan: 💦

can you hear that teasing tone??? link to tweet here!

Prince of Tennis Live Action Cast Interview
  • Hongo Kanata: I have never played tennis before. When I decided to act as this character, I felt a lot of pressure. I'm not sure if I can act it well.
  • Interviewer: Actually now, you can play tennis quite well right?
  • Hongo Kanata: I feel that my skills aren't bad (laughs) Yes it's true. The coach also engaged professional tennis players. I plan to break into Japan's top team!
