A tennis prodigy leads his handsome tennis club to victory at the national tournament. Four-time consecutive U.S. Junior tournament champ Ryoma Echizen comes to Seishun Academy to further his reign as The Prince of Tennis. His skill is matched only by his attitude--irking some but impressing all as he leads his team to the Nationals and beyond! As more intra-squad games are played to determine the starting line-up, fellow Seishun Academy players Kunimitsu Tezuka and Sadaharu Inui duke it out for a slot. But the disparity in their skills becomes evident when everyone realizes that Kunimitsu has not budged since he delivered his serve. Meanwhile, Coach Banda of Yamabuki Junior High offers team captain Kunimitsu a chance to play overseas as an exchange student. Could this be the end of Kunimitsu's tour of duty at Seishun?
