Atobe the Beautiful is the 113th episode of the original Prince of Tennis series. It was first aired on December 17, 2003.


Kaidoh faces Akutagawa Jirou, while Ryoma faces Keigo Atobe. Kaidoh eventually uses the Hadōkyū to hit a Boomerang Snake, which knocks out Jirou.


The final match is Ryoma Echizen vs. Keigo Atobe. Keigo bluntly tells Ryoma that he is going to see if Ryoma is up to Tezuka's level. And with the Rondo Towards Destruction everyone believes that Atobe is one step higher than Ryoma.

On the other court Kaidoh faces Jiro Akutagawa and shows him his boomerang snake which really wakes Jiro up. But Jiro keeps teasing Kaidoh by talking during the game which really gets him irritated.

Momo ends up calming Kaidoh down and Kaidoh uses Hadokyuu to hit a boomerang snake. It's truly incredible and the result is Jiro being knocked out by the sheer force of it. Ryoma and Atobe's match hasn't finished yet but Ryoma isn't even close to being excited.
