This match was love from beginning to end. A bit cracktastic, but still love. Have we ever seen two people so happy to be playing against each other?

There's a translation of the part where Ryoma is lying on the ground thinking to himself here. It's touching and funny.

And of course Ryoma has enough energy left after the match to leap over the net and bring Atobe the clippers. (Did Momo slip those to him?) Oh, the smile on his face.




We don't even see Atobe's face after that, just his lovely locks falling to the ground.

All I can think of now is Kawachi. Kawachi and his many terrible wigs. :)

I admit I'm a bit taken aback by the anger I've seen from some people over this. Not that people are disappointed that Atobe lost and was shorn, but that they are seriously angry and say they hate Konomi. You know, hair grows back. And if you weren't expecting Ryoma to win, then you haven't been reading the manga very closely up until now.

And now, we wait and wait and wait for more. Perhaps we should use this time constructively to write Atobe/Ryoma make-out fic. Clipped heads feel nice.

I bet Atobe-sama looks awesome shorn. And Hyoutei is all about the removal of hair, isn't it? Reminds me of the biblical story of Samson -- the power of the hair (although Shishido gained power after his shearing, hm).

Yay Konomi for ignoring fanservice in favor of a good story.

I bet Atobe-sama looks awesome shorn.

I'm sure you're right. He will always look fabulous. I was going to say that maybe Atobe would feel that it was only right he shave his head after losing, since that's a penitent sort of thing to do. But then I decided he would never say that. :)

Sadly, fandom is an extremely irrational and unrealistic place sometimes. (I remain, however, boggled by people who complain when manga is formulaic. That's what it's supposed to be.)

Yes, this genre for sure. I think that's why I like sports manga so much.

Sports manga, especially, really SHOULD be formulaic. I enjoy the unpredictable stories to be found in real sports, but in manga I am happiest knowing exactly who is going to win and enjoying the unfolding of HOW.

I'm also baffled, however, by people who like shoujo manga -- or even shounen manga in which a romance is a major plot element -- but complain about the pairing(s) involving the protagonist, which are also almost always 100% predictable from very early in the series.

man. Man! I have no words!

Except! No.

Wait.... No.

Damn.

God. I think my favorite match of all time is Sanada/Ryoma in the anime but once this is all translated it might top it.

Heh. God that smile. What a little pisser.

This match certainly had a different flavour than Sanada-Ryoma. That was a lot more grim -- this had so much verve.

Atobe should have known better than to make a bet with Ryoma. :)

:D :D :D :D Ryoma kills me -- that smile, those eyes. ♥♥♥ YAYE SEIGAKU!!!

The idea of Atobe sporting wigs is killing me. It would so become a trend, at least at Hyotei. XD

Ryoma is just so darling here, I want to buy him something expensive. :)

Oooh, maybe all of Hyotei will shave their heads in support. Though I think Oshitari would balk.

Man, I didn't think Konomi would have the balls to do it. *grins* *is waiting to see a bald Atobe*

I'm a little nervous that we didn't actually *see* him bald, just the hair falling. Until we do, there will be a part of me that doesn't quite believe it.

But yeah. It's cool. :)

Exactly. Atobe is 14. His hair will return. Seigaku MOVES ON AT NATIONALS. What else could anyone possibly want? This match had such lovely payoff as long as you could look past the crack.

Kachiro cried. CRIED. AWW. And Momo yelled! I love when he yells.

Also from buchou..from Tezuka...I learned

Oh, Ryoma.

There's another universe out there where this series is all about Kachiro and his struggle to become a Regular. *snugs him*

Also from buchou..from Tezuka...I learned

Everything.

The equation Atobe = Ikkaku(bleach) amuses me after i read this. XD

Hee! I hadn't thought of that one.

Well. Now Imagine Atobe doing the Luck Luck Dance. XD *dies*

Couldn't agree more on all counts. :)) (Am I the only one who thinks Atobe will look so incredibly sexy with a shaved head? SO MUCH WITH THE LUST POTENTIAL.)

It's a bit weird that Ryoma and Seigaku have won everything so far. I would really have expected them to lose to Rikkai in the Kantou tournament, to follow the usual shonen sports paradigm. But the way everything is set up, there was no chance that they would lose here. The finals, maybe, but this early?

I have this vision of Kabaji following Atobe around and completely unable to keep himself from rubbing Atobe's head, no matter how much Atobe complains.

When I was shaving my head (#2 clipper cut), I couldn't keep from rubbing it myself all the time. It was like having a cat and being a cat all at the same time. (Hmm, I wonder if that was TMI.)

Your vision makes me spasm with glee.

I can't help but think of Atobe's line in the ichinensei trio song: "Kabaji! Kabaji!" in the most orgasmic voice.

THAT IS SO CUTE UYGLHOLJ.L

I know. And Atobe will secretly like it, because it feels so good. :)

Ahahahah!!! Oh, I can't wait to see Atobe and his shaved head, this'll be brilliant.
Do you think it's a coincidence that the night preceding this relevations I was having Atobe/Oishi dreams?!?!

Oh, me too. I'm sure he'll be just as sexysexy as before.

Atobe/Oishi? Perhaps Atobe is sytematically stealing all of Tezuka's boyfriends.

Oh you're cruel. :P
Actually, do you think it'll be like a Tachibana transformation? Or even Shishido? I'm seeing a bit of a theme here... (maybe Konomi had a dramatic hair incident in his childhood? Oh noes! :P)

Oh, good thought. Maybe all of Atobe's faults are in his hair and now he will be reborn, a better man.

Though I hope not.

Atobe's hair. This is horrific. I feel as though he's been raped. Though I suppose better Atobe than Ryoma.

The Rape of the Lock! I wonder if anybody collected it up afterwards and saved it. And if Ryoma will now be hunted down by Atobe's fangirls.

If it had been Ryoma's, somebody would have gathered it and sold it as a source of magic. Like unicorn hair or pheonix feathers.

I wonder if Atobe went home afterward and cried. I wish they'd cover his reaction in the manga. Ore-sama is bald.
