Oh yeah! You other readers out there?!!! Post some comments! There's not a lot of story to comment on yet, but it would be nice to know other opinions, even if you hated it. Give it a try!
Don't read what follows if you haven't read to chap13 yet. Little bit spoiler-ish.......
That said, Ide seems like an idiot with a lot of natural sports ability but despite his good luck, he is actually a fairly analytical thinker when it comes to learning and I think this is his strong point...He probably acts like a baby for the attention. As for Rui, I'm looking forward to when it is revealed why de doesn't push himself to the limit as far as he could. I think Ide and Rui will make a nice pair and will learn lots from each other. I don't know what will have with Takada but obviously when her cousin comes to into the picture, there will be a lot of non-tennis to deal with and I look forward to that. She is very strong and I wonder that there's really no recourse for her leg? It was too bad that the 3rd years were set up so nicely and then had to leave already.....but they probably would have just got in the way and they make the transition from crappy team to good team more dramatic. Guess we'll get new first years sooner rather than later, hopefully they still focus on the Ide/Rui characters and don't keep switching so easily.
I'll save the rest for after chapter 14 this week.
