Taka-san gets married!

It isn't exactly Taka-san who got married but rather the seiyuu who plays him i.e. Kawamoto Naru has married actress Haga Kayo on 7 August which happened to be his wife's birthday. The couple is five years apart and started dating three years ago through working on a stage play. Kawamoto reportedly proposed during a trip to Okinawa in January this year. They are expected to hold their wedding next spring.

Good news again from the Seigaku seiyuu camp since Tezuka-bucchou's marriage earlier this year!

I'm not doing anything related to Tenipuri of late other than occasionally rewatching old episodes of the anime or listening to the CDs when I feel like it so this explains the lack of updates here. I'm still keeping the blog active because the previous posts may have things which are of interest to Tenipuri fans. Besides, who knows if I may have anything related to Tenipuri to post in future so keeping this space for like-minded people will be good.

Tezuka bucchou gets married?!

I simply had to post this because our Tezuka bucchou has gotten married! Oh well, not exactly, it's the seiyuu who plays Tezuka that got married. Okiayu Ryotaro announced his marriage to fellow seiyuu Maeda Ai on 27 Jan through his blog while Maeda also commented on this via her Twitter. Apparently, they used to attend the same seiyuu academy (although in different years) and are both under the same agency now. There weren't any details on how long they've dated etc though. Maybe it's because they prefer to keep this as low-key as possible but hey, not many news related to seiyuu gets reported in the major entertainment papers so this shows to a certain extent how prominent Okiayu and Maeda are in this industry.

Just wondering aloud though, Bucchou's ex-wife is also a seiyuu...maybe it's easier to find someone within the same industry since the seiyuus are bound to cross paths one day and may work together for an extended period of time especially if they are doing a long-running series? Anyway, it's great news that he's finally found someone and hope that all goes well for the newlyweds!

Just another thought though, how would Tezuka look like if he gets married? ^__^

Spotting Tenipuri at AFA 2012

While walking along the array of toy machines at Anime Festival Asia 2012, I happened to see this Tenipuri machine selling handphone accessories of Echizen, Atobe, Yukimura, Shiraishi and Shiu. Too bad there wasn't Tezuka nor Sanada on offer or I would have tried my luck here to see if I can get any of my Top 3's handphone accessories. Nonetheless, it was still a pleasant surprise seeing something related to Tenipuri-related. Although I no longer follow the manga actively, I finished watching the new anime series some months ago. Just that it's been difficult to find time to write something about that series but as long as this blog is still up and running, I'll still pop by to write some Tenipuri-related stuff, albeit not as often as I would like. In case you are concerned that this blog will be closed, rest assured that it won't happen in the near future. Having spent so much time on this over a couple of years, I'll still like to have the content up here in case new fans of Tenipuri need some resources to refer to.

Till the next update then!

Meeting Ore-sama!

It's been a long time since I used the coin machine for toys (can't remember the exact term for it) and I happened to spot a Tenipuri one today. Out of curiousity and wanting to try my luck to see if I could get Atobe (he's the only one I like among the 5 characters on offer), I inserted the coins and out came two capsules! What's more, they are both Ore-sama! ^__^ To get two capsules from the machine is unusual, to get two of the same kind which happens to be what I like is even more unthinkable.

Shin Tennis no Oujisama DVD & Blu-ray Vol 1 release

The DVD and Blu-Ray versions of "Shin Tennis no Oujisama" Vol 1 will be released on 20 April. The DVD will contain Ep 1 of the new anime series and 1 OVA depicting how the players spend the night before they join the U-17 National Representatives Training Camp. There will also be original illustrations in the package and screen commentary by seiyuus such as Minagawa Junko, Okiayu Ryoutarou, Kaida Yuki, Suwabe Junichi, Kusunoki Taiten.


It's been such a long time since I posted anything on Tenipuri. Not that I had the intention to abandon the blog but it was difficult to continue looking for fresh content to put up here. No doubt that there's the new anime and the ongoing manga, I think I'm still pretty much reluctant to continue reading the "Shin Tenipuri" series. I have very fond memories of the main series and somehow, I detested the idea of seeing Ryoma win every single thing just because he's the lead. It makes people like Tezuka, Atobe, Sanada and Yukimura look like a big joke when they are supposed to be at the top of their game and they always lose out to this kid. If there are further updates to new releases, I'll try my best to post them on the blog.

Greetings in 2011!

Happy New Year, everyone!

It's been 4 months since my last update...I can't believe how much I'm neglecting this blog. :-( Well, the usual stuff that stops me from posting as much as I want i.e. work, work and more work plus not following Tenipuri as closely as before. It's not that my interest for Tenipuri is waning but time is really not on my side. Coupled with the fact that I didn't really like what I saw in the new Tenipuri manga, I thought it was best that I don't read it anymore. You'll stil see updates, although not as frequent as before.

For those who have been constantly checking this space, thank you for your support and hope that you'll continue to do so in the future! ^__^
