30 Days of Prince of Tennis - Day 29

A character whose backstory you want to know more about
So... I got really really really really busy with getting things done for intern teaching and fell way behind on this meme (and I was doing so well too with staying on track!). In fact, pretty much all of my LJ friends caught up to me in my absence (just to show you how much time has passed) xD Life happens.

I just remembered I accidentally answered this question earlier in the meme so I'll copy and paste a bit of my initial answer of Choutaoru...

Choutarou Ootori. I would have liked to see more of his background... how he got onto the team, how he developed such a strong serve, why he became so close with Shishido (I feel like there's a bit more to it than what was shown in the anime), etc. His personality doesn't scream tennis player to me (maybe it's because he's so gentle and nice) so it would be nice to see how he ended up joining. 

Masaharu Niou. He didn't join the regulars until a little after Yagyuu (because Yagyuu was on the team that won the National Tournament and Niou wasn't) so I'm curious to see why he wasn't on the team earlier than he was (Jackal and Marui wasn't on the team until Niou was as well). I guess in my mind, Platinum Pair is inseparable :D So that just leads to questions about how they ended up forming their doubles team, how they came up with an idea for switch, what drew them to each other, etc.

Hiroshi Yagyuu. I'm wondering if he was a higher ranking regular or if he got to play any matches during his second year when he joined the regulars. Plus the same thing as above with how he became partners with Niou and was convinced (or maybe it was his idea?) to do a switch. I would also be interested to see if he was close-ish with any member of the Three Demons while they were the four (out of the ones we know and love) that were on the team together.

I would love to learn more about Yagyuu during his second year and whether or not he was close to any of the three demons. *__* I hope Yagyuu will be featured in one of the new upcoming PairPuri, though I doubt it...

I feel like Yagyuu was close to all three in different ways. I feel like Yagyuu/Yukimura would be sort of this gentle, comforting friend relationship... Yagyuu/Sanada would be this "respect for hard work and seriousness" connection... Yagyuu/Yanagi would be an academic "let's study and exchange intelligent thoughts" relationship...

I guess I'm thinking that he has several traits that go well or are similar to each of the Three Demons. Yagyuu must be a perfect being! Even his few flaws add perfection!

Haha, sorry I'm tired. I have to teach for the first time by myself tomorrow so I'm like "AHHHHH!!!!!!" inside. But I'll be just fine... I hope.

I know! Yagyuu isn't featured in... anything. I'm sure if they kept his brown hair and his non-golfer-ness, he would have been more popular and would appear on more fan-type things like his counterpart Niou. I'd kill for a PairPuri with him in it. Let us hope then!

Now I really want to see fic exploring their friendship with Yagyuu! *__*

I hope you do well tomorrow~

Yagyuu was so cool in Tenimyu (I hope his popularity went up because of that). I really hope he'll be one of the characters in PairPuri, but I can't think of a theme with him and have no idea who he would star with. But I'll still hope for it. XD

Now wouldn't that be cool and unique? I don't have any ideas for that fic at the current moment, but maybe one of these days... I guess Yagyuu and Sanada can admire the Sanada family rock for the time being together until I come up with something.

Ah thanks! It did go fairly well - a few times where it felt like I was yelling over the 80 kids in the room (8th grade band) or trying to keep 35-40 6th graders busy enough to not keep asking me questions. Gah - their middle school band room is the most awful room I've ever had a rehearsal in. 1) It's not big enough for more than 60 kids volume-wise. 2) There are about a million dead spots in the room where you can't hear anyone but yourself (so that means kids start talking louder to hear themselves and everything sounds like they're playing underwater). I didn't think it was that bad until I had to stand on the podium with the full group and try to work with them (this school tends to do a lot of sectionals... that is breaking apart the full group into different rooms since there are two teachers and me and giving them more individualized attention). *sigh* 80 kids in 8th grade band is a large number compared to most schools. 50-60 is more of a norm I feel.

Yagyuu became one of my loves because of Tenimyu. Oh Baba Toru <3
Hmm... who to pair him with? My initial thoughts were Tezuka (seriousness), Kite (non-revealing meganes), and Kaidou (determination as players). But Tezuka and Kaidou were already used... *thinking still* Oshitari! Introverted, mysterious, megane wearing awesome people!

Ah i want to know more about Nioh and Yagyu too D:!! Konomi say that Nioh and Yagyu have a Rivalry friendship but don't say why D:! Yagyu needs more love, he is my fav chara ;-; (and share the tittle with Nioh, but Yagyu is a little higher [0.00000001mm] xD)!!

And Choutaro will be great to! He is cute, so needs more attention 8D!
