The Prince of Tennis Vol. 4: The Black Unit

The Prince of Tennis Volume 4

The Black Unit
The quest continues for the gritty players at Seishun Academy. With their sights dead-set on making it all the way to the Nationals, they must outclass every team that stands in their way. Next up is Fudomine, a group of belligerent players who were disqualified from the rookie games last year due to a tournament fracas. Tempers flare and talents soar when the battle begins with the very first serve. It might take more than "Tsubame Gaeshi" to secure this victory!

The Prince of Tennis Vol. 5

With only one victory away from advancing to the city tournament, Seishun Academy fields the Prince of Tennis, Ryoma Echizen, to compete against the mysterious and mumbling Shinji of the Fudomine Team. As the punishing battle of skills unfolds, Ryoma develops a muscle paralysis called "Spot," which leaves him with barely enough strength to grip the racket, much less swing it. Refusing to go down without a fight, Ryoma unleashes a "two-sword fighting style" technique that only talented, ambidextrous players are able to execute. Will Ryoma have the strength to pull himself out of the ditch and beat Shinji? And what awaits his ex-pro tennis player father, Nanjiro, when a reporter tracks him down? Find out in the next volume of this intense sports manga!

Are you trying to read this comic in the wrong direction?

...Gotcha! In keeping with the original Japanese format, manga are meant to be read from right to left, starting in the upper-right corner.

Unlike English, which is read from left to right, Japanese is read from right to left, meaning that action, sound effects, and word-balloon order are completely reversed... something which can make readers unfamiliar with Japanese feel pretty backwards themselves. For this reason, manga or Japanese comics published in the U.S. in English have sometimes been published "flopped" - that is, printed in exact reverse order, as though seen from the other side of a mirror.

By flopping pages, U.S. publishers can avoid confusing readers, but the compromise is not without its downside. For one thing, a character in a flopped manga series who once wore in the original Japanese version a T-shirt emblazoned with "MAY" (as in "the merry month of") now wears one which reads "YAM"! Additionally, many manga creators in Japan are themselves unhappy with this process, as some feel the mirror-imaging of their art skews their original intentions.

We are proud to bring you manga presented in the original unflopped format. For now, though, click to the left and let the adventure begin...!
