Question? I really like The Prince of Tennis Series. Are they the one's that are doing the new series that just started, and if so, does this mean the end of the new series?

I would really hate to see no more of this series story.

The "new" series (Prince of Tennis II) already ended friend!! It was a pointless 13 episode series.

I read the story. Didn't answer my question. That's why I asked the question.

I haven't watched the new series yet. The last one was almost 200 eps. So, I didn't expect this one to end at 13 eps, thought maybe they were making more.

I thought they were going to make more too. But i found out it was only 13. Such good animation too. Sigh. I'm still young so i can't buy the animation yet, since Im focusing on the mangas first... but sigh. I really loved the series

The article does answer your question, quite directly actually. Try reading it again and read the entire thing.

that is not true I loved the second medabots series as a kid.

and they helped with beast player erin which is an amazing locomotive of a series. it is easily one of my favorite stories ever of any medium.

And prince of tennis person read the last few sentences of the article. because it was not done by this company.

I see Trans Arts as another victim of economy and cutthroat competition.

I can't say much about Prince of Tennis, but one major contract show can't sustain the production studio forever. In case of Japanese studios which rely on adaptations, they have to keep pumping out new shows to survive.

It looks like they couldn't get a contract large enough to sustain the company. Their list of original or full production shows are very few and they live by subcontract works. Obviously they never got lion's share of Princess of Tennis franchise and once the show was over in 2005, they couldn't get more full production contract to keep going.

A friend of mine loved the Prince of Tennis that she urged me to watch it too. But I don't really like that anime. I guess the series was already finished so it's ok if that filling of bankruptcy happened. The epidemic of bankruptcies in the past few years has slowed somewhat, as fewer people are filing for Chapter 7 or Chapter 11 protection. However, a Large number of people cannot afford bankruptcy because they can’t afford to do so. I guess they are to broke to file? Confused
