    This series has been pretty interesting so far and I hope more chapters are scantlated (so far 3 chapters) since there's at least 4 volumes out at the moment.

    It's pretty interesting seeing E-chan be passionate for the first time in his life about something and yet his perfectionist attitude has him quickly becoming a student of the game so to speak.

    I wonder how long it's going to take E-chan to get from the F court to the A court? Given that he actually gets on the court since he's still practicing with the wall right now xD

    Given that Natsu already feels that E-chan will surpass her someday, it probably won't be too long.

    Yeah, I read it earlier today. Of course I didn't bother posting it here because there didn't appear to be any activity. In any case, E-chan's road to becoming a pro is a harsh one since he started so late. I'm looking forward to seeing if he could basically keep up the pace of training in order to change his body structure.
     
  7. BlaZeR Oh yeah?

    I was hoping they'd show a little bit of Tak vs Souji. Can't wait for the next chapter though, I'm enjoying this more than PoT.

    Me too, but mostly because this series has a more realistic view on the sport...at least moreso than PoT. E-chan's decision to go pro feels as if the series is starting a brand new storyline to this series.

    He's in a way graduated from only using his notebook tennis style of play (although his analytical type of play is still a very huge part of his game) and taking notice of the different factors needed to take his game to the next level.

    Hopefully, according to baka-updates there are currently 18 volumes in Japan and we're only up to vol 6. X is the group that scanlates it and it looks like they're pretty active.

    Edit: I tried looking for news on the release dates but found nothing, they're probably just busy with more popular series.

    Finished reading all the available scans, I found this to be far better than PoT. I really like the main character and how his growth is handled.

    We have scans up to volume 7 while the raws are at volume 19. :/

    I'm guessing that the manga is weekly with extremely slow or erratic releases from the scanlation team, Imangascans, which seems to be the only one doing the scan for Baby Steps.

    I love this manga and I hope the scan-group, who are scanlating the manga, could scanlate a little faster^^

    The Manga has already 19 Volumes and the Scans are just on Volume 7;)

    Ei-chan and Nacchan sure had a good mood going there :hurr

    And even though it was only a small step towards his goal, Maruo did win the STC tourny and now he can continue building up his body to prepare for a more difficult tourny. I can't wait until that one gets underway.

    It's only fitting he would have an opponent of that caliber in the opening round, especially since his approach to the game is similar to E-chan's.

    Nabae is being pushed back quite a bit, so I can see why Maruo wants to get off to a quick start. Once Nabae gets enough data things will get increasingly difficult.

    Looks interesting I get the feeling Nabae has gathered his info it will be interesting how Eiichirou reacts to it as no doubt it will be much more difficult now.

    Nabae's overwhelming experience combine with his analytical skills are making it painfully obvious the gap that exists between the two. I wonder what Maruo just discovered and will it be enough to turn the tide (doubtful about a win, but perhaps he'll make a better showing in the match)

    So close to discovering a possible weak point to Nabae's game :shakefist

    Hi ability to control his emotion is key to the game, hopefully Maruo can figure it a way to use it against him in time.

    Can't really see Ei winning this match at this point, Nabae is pretty much superior in everything besides reaction speed.

    I can only see this match as being a major learning opportunity for Ei, since he does seem to be in quite the whole. It wouldn't seem realistic to see him come back and win from such a deficit.

    Really good to see Ei's style of play developing. I feel as if Ei will mostly likely only lose because of mistakes that he makes unless Nabae takes it up another gear or switches his play-style to something that can counter Ei now.

    Ei's really playing it tight with those many partitions. If he had figured this out in the first set, he might have had a chance at winning this match, but being down by 3 in the second set essentially sealed the deal.

    It's a good thing that he didn't figure it out in the first set, would have read to a less interesting match in all likelihood. Their re-match should be really interesting, Ei should have the accuracy to easily do a hundred partitions.

    That was really close and as I suspected it would be Ei's inexperience with this style of tennis that would cost him the match.
