For many fans who have supported TeniPri, those who laughed at it at least once, and those who don’t know about it, we produced a totally new entertainment that filled with the 20-year worth of happiness using the medium of film!! That is, ‘Ryoma! Shinsei The Prince of Tennis.’ I would love to make everyone who watches it happy.”
