The “Shin” series that launched in 2009 is a sequel to Konomi’s original Prince of Tennis manga series. The Prince of Tennis: Eikoku-shiki Teikyu-jo Kessen! motion picture will hit Japanese theaters on September 3.
The New Prince of Tennis has been running in Shueisha’s Jump Square magazine since 2009.

Viz Media published the 42nd and final volume of Konomi’s original manga run in North America in July.
