Sasabe is one of the many high school students in the U-17 Camp in the sequel series New Prince of Tennis and in 12th court until he was eliminated from the camp when he was unable to secure one of the 250 tennis balls in an elimination test. It is unknown if he is related to any of the other Sasabe characters, but Takeshi Konomi definitely made his name intentional.
Sasabe Junichi has blonde hair and has dark skin similar to the Kyushu Region players.
Sasabe is arrogant, seen how he was willing to play a match just to the get the tennis ball. This was also shown when he played against Sanada and lost to his lightning move.
Sasabe is one of the many high school students in the U-17 Camp originally in the 12th Court until he was eliminated from the camp when he was unable to secure one of the 250 tennis balls in an elimination test. He challenged the middle school characters to a match but was instead made into a joke by Tezuka Kunimitsu, Kite Eishiro, Yagyu Hiroshi, Oshitari Yushi and Konjiki Koharu by trying to challenge a middle schooler "with glasses." Inui Sadaharu tried to avoid the situation. He ends up playing against Sanada Genichiro but only loses as Sanada uses Lightning to destroy the strings on Junichi's racquet completely.
