I don’t know if you guys are already following me when I posted something about it (because it was during the days when I just returned to tumblr after more than a year of being on hiatus) but here’s an elaboration of that previous post some months ago:
As we all (probably) know by now, Shiraishi Kuranosuke, Fuji Syuusuke and Yukimura Seiichi are sharing the same room in the U-17 Training Camp, they are all kind and gentle looking but are not to be messed with especially when playing tennis and they all seem to share a fascination with plants (for Yukimura, it’s plants in general while for Fuji, it’s cacti and for Shiraishi it’s poisonous plants).
They have other common points like the fact that all of them are either the strongest or second strongest in their respective teams, etc etc but that isn’t the point of this post so I won’t go deeper into that.
What I want to focus on is their rather unnoticed commonality and it’s the fact that they all have something to do with the otherworldly (especially with the divinity. Let’s break it down:
For Shiraishi, it is of course, his title, The Bible. His “Bible” might have a different meaning but when we first hear the word “Bible”, the first thing that comes into our minds is the Holy Bible, right?
For Yukimura, again, it’s his title. The Child of God (or in other translations the Demigod). Need I say more? The title says it all, either his power or his connection with the divinity.
For Fuji, it’s gonna be his technique names. They all either have something to do with mythology or such creatures. Another nice thing to point out would be Sakuno’s statement in the anime during his match against Akaya where the girl commented that he looks like an angel (probably to emphasize the difference between him and Akaya).
To sum it all up, because of this commonality, I call this brOT3 the Holy Trinity. I always have and probably always will.
EDIT: Sorry. My bad. It was Tomoka and not Sakuno in episode 124 that said Fuji looked like an angel :)
