Wow. Yukimura is definitely one of my favorite characters if not my favorite and this was just so depth into his psyche it's unbelievable. Thanks for sharing!

This is so DEEP T.T I wish I could write like you. This is amazing, seriously. You gave Yukimura and just the whole theme of PoT in general so much depth and really, you should take over and write PoT instead :D

Yes I agree, to reach the Pinnacle of Perfection one must have fun, to just play tennis for all it's worth. Just like Echizen Nanjiroh said. For Yukimura, it's only about winning therefore making it hard for him to achieve the Pinnacle of Perfection. To him, tennis is only about winning.

Wow, I really love the fic. Its so amazing how well this piece is thought out. Its really one of those think out of the box fics that immediately strikes people as true. But,I think that some sentences are cut off to abruptly. But I really loves reading this and its one of tthose great stories that you would read again and again just so you could memorize the meaning behind it all. Hope u keep on writing these, they're really great.

Have I told you how I like the vagueness of your stories? If not, well yeah, I damn like it. Please keep up this kind of writing. It's rather hard to come by something like this.

Good work :)

I love, love how fics and wikis spoil me. It fills up the blank left behind by the incomplete PoT DVDs we have at home.

"Onii-chan, are you happy?"
He had everything except that.
Icicle Streams chapter 1 . 1/24/2012
Interesting. I especially loved the bit at the end where you describe how his robbing people of their senses leaves behind only memories. The ending was great

Okay, so I read this a while ago and I just never got around to reviewing it.

I love this. I love this so much. I think this is your best work yet, and as I was reading this I was like WHAT TENSAI WROTE THIS AMAZING THING WHAT WHAT because it's so different from your other work but so, so amazing.

Look at you. You write this and there are no words to describe how amazing it is except "amazing". xD

The only part I don't really like is the KiriAn parts. For me, personally, it felt like the fic strayed from the central message a little. Akaya achieves it because he has An. Not because of something inside him. Know what I mean?

But I don't care, because Yukimura is prob my favorite character at this point, and you did him justice with this fic. Please, please write more character studies soon! This style suits you, tensai. :)

This is brilliant. Truly brilliant. Amazing. I really love Yukimura fics and it's hard to find them in character. I love being Yukimura but I hardly find the motivation to write. This doesn't make me write but it makes me smile. GREAT job! D I really adore this and due to my brain sucking atm. P I can't put it in words. It's inspiring in a different sense. In life. GREAT FIC!

Really lovely, interesting piece. I liked seeing how you through Yuki thought out the pinnacle of perfection. (I still believe Yuki is the strongest and anyone who beats him is cheating.)
mayfairs chapter 1 . 12/12/2011

soooooooo I really like this fic :') It's very informative, but it hits and it hurts, I guess. YUKIMURAA, I'LL LOVE YOU FOREVER JAIOHFEIWHFEUIWHEIWU AGHHHHH WHYYYY It all makes sense and comes together very very well, but if I would complain I'd say that some sentences are cut off too suddenly and are too short, and some sentences should have some more passion in them, hazzah. Yukimura's very passionative, he's not at all passive, and I read this more like the hidden train of Yukimura's thoughts :3

Frog-kun chapter 1 . 12/12/2011
This. Wow. I was blown away. I actually think this is better than your fic exchange fic, because I can really see the focus in this, and it's one of the best Yukimura-centric fics I've ever seen. And I've seen some damn good contenders in my time.

You touch on aspects of Yukimura I haven't even thought of. The last line in particular really struck me and made me go FJGBDHYSUBFJHDBSH inside my head. But yeah, there is this slight tendency on your part to explain every little thing, but it works really well in a character study fic. I think this kind of writing really suits you XD It has this journalistic flair, you know?

Anyway, I am adding this to my C2. I'LL JUST IGNORE THE KIRIAN REFERENCES LAWL.
Kosaji chapter 1 . 12/12/2011
I loved it. It really fits with Yukimura's character, and I loved how you said that he was the gate keeper to the final door. It's sad yet I feel happy because he finally realizes what he is missing in his game. I've always felt that Yukimura placed too much emphasis on winning, and that he stunted his and his team's growth by not allowing them the possibility of loosing. Good work on this and I liked the KiriAn bit you sneaked in. I wouldn't mind reading a story about those two from you some day. Keep writing, I love all of your works.

OMG my heart breaks~

Seriously, you really analyzed the heck out of this xD I loved how Atobe just shatters everyone's calculations. You had a great idea and I'm truly happy I got to read it first :P

There's not much to add other than saying that you...are...awesome! That and you must have exhausted some brain cells lol.

Any who, I appreciate this fic just as much as the last one. Great work Tensai!
