Prince of Tennis National Tournament OVA

National Tournament - Higa Arc

Ep. # Airdate Japanese Title English Title Summary Filler?
01 March 24, 2006 Return of the Prince The participating teams gather for Nationals and the tournament begins. Rokkaku faces Higa while the other teams watch. Ryoma surprisingly returns from New York and it is decided whether or not he will replace someone on the team for Nationals.
02 May 26, 2006 Hot & Cool Higa vs. Seigaku begins with Singles 3, Tanishi vs. Echizen. The personalities of Higa are introduced. Much, much trash talking ensues. In a battle of size, Echizen's chibi-ness is thoroughly tested with a serve more powerful than anything he's faced before.
03 May 26, 2006 The Fourth Counter Doubles 2, Chinen/Hirakoba vs. Fuji/Kawamura. Kawamura has trouble finding an opportunity to use the Hadoukyuu, Higa's coach reveals the source of the team's seemingly violent attitude, and Hirakoba Rin has buckets of fun playing against challenging opponents.
04 July 28, 2006 Kikumaru All Alone Singles 2, Kai vs. Kikumaru. The tables turn a few times in this series-changing match, where Kikumaru grapples emotionally with playing singles and Kai puts up a strong battle. In the end, 'Prince of Tennis' crosses the line from magic realism to surrealism with a new technique.
05 July 28, 2006 The Longest Summer Doubles 1, Aragaki/Shiranui vs. Kaidou/Inui. After a challenge by Yagyuu, Kaidou plays the match to test his limits. Inui does not rally, letting Kaidou return all the shots, and Kaidou refuses to use the snake. It becomes a battle of endurance.
06 September 22, 2006 The Man Called Killer Singles 1, Kite vs. Tezuka. Captain Kite's merciless reputation comes to light. He takes the now-famous Higa Shukuchihou method to another level, proving to be a formidable opponent. He will do anything to win, and his methods light something up in Tezuka.
07 September 22, 2006 The Prince of Beach Volleyball In an alternate universe, Rokkaku and Seigaku play beach volleyball. The consequences of losing are harrowing.

New Prince of Tennis: Hyoutei vs. Rikkai - Game of Future

Hyoutei vs. Rikkai is a two part, anime-only OVA released in 2021. It takes place after the U-17 World Cup, before the 3rd years' graduation. Although it is one of the New Prince of Tennis titles, the OVA is more regarded as a spinoff. There is no mention of Seigaku, Echizen, or the typical protagonists– only Hyoutei and Rikkai appear, facing off in an exhibition match. Despite being anime-only, the match order was decided by Konomi-sensei, and he was heavily involved in the production.
