I loved this movie. I was happy that the cast of Seigaku was the original cast from one of their musicals (except Hongo of course. I wonder how well he sings...) Originally though, I didn't care about anyone except for Aiba. I was so happy several years ago when I heard that he was going to play Fuji in the musical, and when I saw that he was in the movie, I felt so proud of him.

But I also love Shirota and Adachi. Shirota really looks like Tezuka to me. Even though he's not full Japaense, he just fits the part so well...

What made me sad about the movie was that they replaced the Hyoutei team with people who had more experience with tennis. My cousin told me though that people who originally played Hyoutei members in the musical appeared in the movie as extra people or something so... at least they were included... - -

i so agree, they should have kept Hyotei's musical casting ( they only kept date koji as ootori ).... Kazuki kato is like the perfect atobe even tho im ruito's fan /winks poor yanagi and endo yuya were too old for play ryoma


i didnt really like the movie, match are so short

sorry for my sucky english ^^"

Aiba Hiroki was my favorite in this LA........but then again I'm biased since Fuji was my favorite in both the manga & the anime~ :wub:

.......plus, he's just sooo darn pretty! XD

Definately an awesome movie!! I didn't know what to expect since I have never read the series. My friends who had, said it was somewhat disappointing since they were trying to cram too much into a movie instead of a series, so a lot of the characters' backgrounds and personalities get left behind. Still, I really enjoyed it since I obviously did not know what I was missing. Great cast with some pretty good acting skills. A lot of up and coming stars most likely.

i died laughing. i don't know how i managed to finish it.
i guess ryoma's actor was okay, and also eiji's. but that was it. the guy who played atobe killed me. lol
there was just something that was so utterly wrong. maybe being a fan of both the manga and the anime just spoiled the whole movie for me.
sorry to all you pot movie fans here.

yes!!! this movie was totally hilarious. maybe if i hadn't watched the anime and read the manga so faithfully i would have liked it better. but this just didn't do it for it. i mean, it was cool to see them try and portray all the characters, but damn... just too weird. what totally floored me was who they got to play tezuka and fuji. =| is all i have to say

I definitely hope not.

The first one wasn't even that good.....they only concentrated on Ryoma's matches and it was kinda boring. The guy who played Tezuka didn't even come close to looking liking him.
Inui was too short and they barely did anything with him.


Anyways........if you guys are interested in seeing that Ryoma kid again, he's acting in Himitsu no Hanazono.

don't know if this will ruin the movie for you or not, but i think the best match that was shown in the movie was Echizen vs Kaidoh. The rest was kinda.......bad. Especially Taka san's match. That was bad.....

Well see I think the problem when they make a live action is they try to make it real life. I mean sure there were things in the anime that are really hard to do in a live action movie...but well there were some things that could've been done....sorry I didn't buy Atobe...he just didn't look like him and well his level of arrogance....yeah not strong enough.

It's funny...in anime they make them look too american and when they make a live action...they make them too japanese looking...

I can say one thing....i don't always agree with the casting choices and some of them...I'm trying to figure out

To say the least, to go from anime/manga to live-action tends to have some really bad results, especially if there's IMPOSSIBLE moves to be replicated. It's also especally hard to cram all those episodes into one film, so it was super rushed. I didn't feel like the characters were developed enough, and most people would only understand if they had watched the anime or read the manga.

I spent most of the film laughing from the oh-so-obvious special effects. They were so corny yet cute. Some of the cast didn't fullfil my expectations, but for all you PoT fans, it's a good experience.

and for all those who want to download; GOOGLE IS YOUR FRIEND. toriyama's world has the raws & boxtorrents should have it.

Yup, i was totally disappointed after watching this movie T_T it's so boring, most of the good parts are cut, even the important matches. I hope they'll go on season 2 and make it better, but maybe not possible :glare:

I'd prefer the musical, the Tenimyu - Dream live 2nd and 3rd are so great :wub: does anyone know where can I download the Dream live 2nd and 3rd - high quality ?
