Shin Tennis no Ouji-sama Synopsis

It takes a lot to get to the top when it comes to tennis. Nobody knows this better than Ryouma Echizen, a young tennis prodigy, and his teammates from the Seishun Academy. It was only because they pushed themselves to their limits and spent countless hours preparing for each exciting game that they managed to claim victory at the Japan National Tournament.

So Shin Tennis no Ouji-sama begins with Ryouma and his teammates going to the U-17 national team's training ground after receiving a special invitation to win the Nationals. The training ground is famous for its strong tennis players, so the guys from Seishun Academy are not eager to take their game to a new level. However, not everyone is happy to have them in their ranks and they have to undergo intense training to prove that they are among the best players of their generation.
