Fans of the Prince of Tennis series should have heard of this: a POT movie done by real actors! I was really eager to check this out when I saw the trailer.
The movie turned out to be a compressed version of the anime series, from his entry into Seigaku to being a regular and on to the match against Hyotei Gakuen. Make that very highly compressed.. Kaido used his Boomerang Snake right at the start, as did Momoshiro with the Jack Knife. And Echizen knew how to use Fuji’s Hakugei at the end, WTF? His Cool Drive resembled a nuclear missile or something lol.
- Tezuka was portrayed very well, managing to bring out the feel of the calm and resolute Seigaku captain.
- Echizen wasn’t too bad either.
- Kaido was very good too, with his menacing look. I was kinda surprised he didn’t do his trademark hissing and Momoshiro didn’t go on and on about calling Kaido mamushi. No usual fighting in the movie for the two of them.
- Atobe was decent too, except for the fact that he didn’t have silver hair and didn’t go with his usual “na, Kabaji?” I miss that.
- The actor for Kawamura was quite all right too, with his “BURNINGGG!!!” He really sounded like the anime seiyuu, damn.
I was kinda disappointed with a few of the choices for the characters though.
- Inui wasn’t tall enough and looked kinda nerdy, not to mention his weird hair.
- Momoshiro wasn’t that tall and was tanned o.O
- Oishi’s hairdo looked just like the rest of the guys. I had a hard time telling who Oishi was at the beginning.
- Nanjiro looked like any other middle-aged fellow, unlike the athletic and perverted Nanjiro in the anime.
On the whole, I enjoyed the movie. If only it wasn’t so chunky from being fast-forwarded, bah.
çŒªçŒªä¹å›‘s a clue, if you’re wondering. Hmmmm..
I’m recommending that you buy the Japanese DVD of course.. but IF it so happens that you come into possession of the DVD rips (nooooo I’m not saying that you should download it, merely IF you happen to have them wink wink) and want to watch the movie with the Chinese subtitles hmmm, it gets a little tricky.
Anyway, here’s how you do it:
- Download VLC media player and install it.
- Download a Chinese font (I used SimSun) and place it anywhere other than C:WINDOWSFonts.
Now we’re done with the tools.
- Select Settings – Preferences.
- Under Video – Subtitles/OSD, look at the Text renderer option.
- For Font, choose the font you downloaded earlier.
*Note: this font cannot be in the WINDOWSFonts folder if it is to be used.
This is to select the proper font for displaying subtitles.
- Make sure the .srt file is the of the same filename as your .avi file.
- Use File – Open File
- Select the correct .avi and .srt files. Check the Use a subtitles file box.
- Select Advanced settings, choose GBK for subtitles text encoding.
- Click OK, and OK again.
Your subtitles should show correctly now : ) Enjoy!
