Yes, you guessed it right! The new film is taking place, not in Japan but in America, the land of hip-hop.

By now, you all know that the film takes place in the three-month time gap between The Prince of Tennis and the New Prince of Tennis. However, did you know that Ryoma had departed to America in order to train?

After winning the finals in the national tournament, Ryoma visited the US alone to train. He encounters Sakuno, an old classmate there, and notices that she is entangled with some gangsters.

Ryoma hits a ball to help Sakuno, but the ball clashes with another ball thrown by a mysterious person in a wheelchair. Space-time begins to distort, and Ryoma is transported to the time when his father was an active player.

Tomokazu Sugita is just as surprised by the decision as we are. He has even commented, “How should it be done? A done thing doesn’t change, but is Sugita sane? Sane!!”

The situation is weird enough to actually make us question the staff’s sanity, but I cannot deny that I am also looking forward to how this bizarre twist will work out in the end.
