What happens when your dunk smash is used against you by a wily opponent? Go on the offensive, of course! But when our favorite trickster Momo clashes against Yamabuki Junior High's Sengoku in this week's fresh episodes of The Prince of Tennis, his patented Jackknife shot might have an Achilles heel -- or to be more precise, a sprained right foot! But that match is just a prelude to Ryoma's face-off against the thuggish Akutsu. The last time the two of them met up, Ryoma got a fistful of rocks in his face for his trouble -- will he get off the court alive this time?
Catch the latest episodes in the Prince of Tennis section.
Episode 43: Lucky Sengoku
Sengoku counters Momoshiro’s signature dunk smash and the match slowly starts shifting in his favor. Momoshiro perseveres but his left foot starts to spasm due to the intensity of the match.
Episode 44: Jackknife
Finally Ryoma’s match starts with Akutsu from Yamabuki Junior High. With all the trouble Ryoma encountered with Akutsu a few days ago, everyone is worried for his safety!
In the latest episode of Naruto Shippuden out today, Sasuke and his minions are up to no good, and Naruto continues his hard training. As a person who's a bit scared of heights, the training exercise involving a precarious mountain peak and maintaining your balance seems pretty intimidating... and we wouldn't even have a Toad Sage around to save you from a fall with a lash of his extra-long tongue! But perhaps the most important question raised by this episode is: which is better for you, potatos with mayo or larva riceballs? Hopefully we'll never be in a position to find out...
Episode 156: Surpassing the Master
Naruto continues his Sage training at Mount Myoboku, but with very slow progress. Fukasaku runs out of patience and suggests they move on to the next training…
Retsu Unohana may be in the background some of the time, but she's a steadying presence, a maternal figure, and handy with the healing powers -- just what every action-packed anime needs! In Bleach, patient and unfailingly polite Retsu is the captain (and Florence Nightingale) of squad 4, and also happens to be one of the most spiritually powerful folks in the the Soul Society, inspiring the respect and devotion even of well-established Soul Reapers like Shunsui and Jushiro. Just one thing: never try to sneak away before she finishes healing you of your injuries... We haven't seen her Bankai yet, but we're sure that it should be quite impressive when/if it turns up!
Be sure to send Retsu wishes for a happy birthday, and peruse some of her highlights from Bleach thus far:
While Byakuya and Ichigo fight it out and different factions clash, Retsu cares for the wounded on both sides.
In a stunning turn of events, Retsu puts the pieces of the puzzle together to determine that a traitor is in the Soul Society's midst.
While healing Byakuya, Retsu brings his sister Rukia over and helps the two siblings reconcile.

In this week's fresh episodes of Hikaru no Go, it is most decidedly "on," with the coveted title of Go pro at stake -- and Hikaru faces the difficult task of having to take down one of his buddies. But we can't forget about Hikaru's best friend of all, so in episode 43 we get a heartwarming little flashback with Sai, and further hints that he might not be with Hikaru much longer... You have to appreciate how well-paced Hikaru no Go is, and how seeds for plot and character turns are planted early and developed throughout the story.
Check out the series in uncut subtitled format in the Hikaru no Go section.
