[CDrama] Prince of Tennis (CCTV, 2008)

Post by ittiou » Aug 17th, '07, 14:28

I read on an LJ community about a drama based on Prince of Tennis, in Mainland China...here

It seems to have been confirmed for June 2008. A really long time from now.

Thoughts?

I worry, that if its a drama from Mainland China, it'd be harder to get overseas...

When I read about this I was like :blink I think it will be really interesting :-)

Is it the first drama from Mainland China that is based on a Japanese manga? It seems like it is. :O

I found an article in TokyoGraph about this:

The cast is already determined...

I think Ryoma, who is not in that pic, is too tall, and not cute at all.

aiya! noooooo. i didn't like the japanese movie much.. and now another. =S i think Prince of Tennis is something that should stay in anime/manga. some of the stuff is just too cheesy when made live action. well, i'll still see this even if i'm scared it might be just as weird. i hope it won't be too bad (god please!)

The male cast are all contestants of a Chinese TV show (My Hero).
Mostly last years contestants, but some are from this years show.

A drama of Prince of Tennis? It sounds okay. But I'm not sure if that will make a good drama. I think the jmovie of PoT was good. Can't wait to watch this. :D

I remember I almost fainted when I saw the news release and photos in august when the news came out...

Although I'm seriously not a fan of the once contestants on that show~~~Prince of Tennis is my favorite~~~not trying to be difficult here but don't see this going big with those guys

The cast is fairly good-looking......

but I don't know....I think it's the influence of tenimyus (prince of tennis musicals) that I already have my characters set by their seiyuus (first cast, second cast, on and on).

ie: Aiba Hiroki as Fuji-senpai, Kazuki Kato as Atobe, ect.

I guess I'm semi-looking forward to see this. and if this drama fails I'm pretty sure I won't be bothered by it. but here's to hoping for the best~ :)

omfg, i definitely wouldn't watch this at all. i mean pot should stick to anime/manga 'cause it's better compares to live-action movie so now i read this shocking news that there will be a tv series that make me vomit. =x don't get me wrong, pot is really one of my favorites so i bet it would be another flop just like a movie did. .___.

I don't know........I thought that the seiyuu cast of the musical (save for the only non-seiyuu member, Kanata Hongo) did a great job as their counterparts in the live action film~

I guess the cast are alright looking, though i guess onyl a few will actually be hot haha. Who's playing Kaido? haha I wonder if he's gonna be hot
I love PoT, but i wonder if it'll be a good drama, it'll just be like watching tennis matches....I actually like that parts in the Pot manga where they're not playing tennis better cause like when they have the bowling/volleyball/eating contests =P
I hope its good =D

Wah!!!! Prince of Tennis!!

I can think of several professional players who would make great attractive hunks in a drama. Several of the Spanish guys and also the South American ones.
Rafael Nadal is adorable and then lets see is it Antonio Lopez for S.A. Well they can all play tennis but they also have good chemistry.

Well we shall see how the Chinese heroes do on the court.

I loved when each character used their special in different sports.


I'll give you Nadal if you give me Ivanovic.

China?

Post by Yvon » Mar 10th, '08, 08:46

That's interesting since a japanese film will be remaked by China?! I know it's not really a remake but It's also considered one since this has been filmed in live action already ,it's just in movie and this one will be in series. :whistling: Let's see if this will be a hit...but we have to wait for long months :scratch:

I don't mean to insult you Kuso_Baba but you should really read from the first post cause it said and i quote "drama from Mainland China", not Taiwan or Japan but quoting again "drama from Mainland China".
If anyone else needs clarification, Naguoki has offered 2 links which would answer a few questions about this MAINLAND CHINA drama.
Till next time, the resident obvious guy~

StealthGnome,

OK you can have Ivanovic. He is also adorable and a great player. Must add I like tommy Haas but he is not up in the top ten these days. Still looks good.

Sigh...so may players and so little time.....

So, this drama airs today, right? Or so they say in the official blog ...

but Dragon TV ? Well, do you know in what time it'll be aired, cause I/m watching Dragon TV right now, but there's only Prince of Tennis the animated series (anime series ) in the schedule ...which is strange :unsure:

wow this series suck. I stoped watching after the first 4 eps.
I hate how they portrayed ryoma and many of the other chars. I prefer the laid back non-caring anime ryoma than this annoying 30-yr old any day.
Tesuka seems like a loser in this drama too. Just a big disappointment

I don't think Bai Xu Xu is that bad. He may not be handsome, but I wouldn't say he's ugly either. His character, Guo Guang, is quite boring, though.

I really don't like Long Ma and his attitude so far. He's a pompous little prick with an obvious complex. Get over yourself, buddy! :glare:
