I was totally rooting for a captain vs captain match in the Nationals Finals. It didn’t happened, much to my chagrin. Rawr!
But then again, I’m still thankful that that didn’t happened because. Because dammit! Tezuka vs Yukimura!?!?!?!?! Oh how on earth can I take sides!?!?! HAHAHAHA. No, of course not. I don’t often really take sides. I swear. I can’t actually remember the last time I take sides. It’s so hard to do that especially because I love them all. Okey, I’m being off-topic now beh!
Anyway, yes, a Tezuka vs Yukimura match. These two are, IMHO, the top two best PoT players. Look. God-given talent? Check. Hospital bills? Check! Flawless techniques? Check. Gorgeous faces? Check! Hardwork? Check!
This started after that chapter with Sanada revealing how Tezuka ruthlessly it’s ruthless really, Sanada lost 6-1/6-0 oh gooodie, no wonder Sanada was so into redeeming himself beat him and then Yukimura came and asked Tezuka for a match. Konomi didn’t showed what happened there, unfortunately. And until now, I’m still making theories what did really happen in that match.
The theory I have is that they had an unfinished business. The match was not finished…somebody might have stopped them or whatever. I just know that that match was stopped. And I have these lines from Pair Puri to solidify my theory:
These three years in middle school, I strangely have not had a match with Tezuka. Next time, let’s have a serious match with the world as our stage.
Yanagi: One day, I will have to settle my match with Tezuka, is what Yukimura will say.
Seiichi would’t have these thoughts from nothing. One day…one day, I will get to see that match. I know. I just know.
