    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. http://imangascans.org/ 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.

    I read this too, but you'll hate the ending. It's just like Suzuka all over again.

    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.

    The release timing is horrible.

    How often are they out? Like once a month?

    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.

    The training has already paid dividends for his physical abilities. Now, we have to see how he reacts to an actual challenge.

    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.

    Well, that's a pretty dangerous opponent for his match match. Should be entertaining.

    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.

    Eiitirou is doing pretty good at the moment, should change quickly as the match progresses but it's off to a good start.

    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.
