Kōsuke Tenjin (天神耕介 , Tenjin Kōsuke) is a minor highschool character in the New Prince of Tennis anime adaption.
Tenjin appears to be close friends with Tonpei Hirari as the two of them are regularly seen together and call each other bro' despite not being related. They even have some of the same interests.
Tenjin wears a white cap. As a member of the 2nd Stringers within the U-17 Camp, Tenjin wears the white uniform.
Tenjin makes his first appearance at the start of the series with close friend Hirari. They appear to be playing a role similar to what Arai did in the original series- the ball and can scene, but towards the entire Seigaku tennis team. They are shocked that they are able to hit the cans with tennis balls.
During the ball drop, he and Hirari are not able to get balls. However, Ootori gives a ball each to them, causing the two 2nd year high schoolers to respect Ootori a lot.
Later in A Day To Remember he appears with Tonpei Hirari offering to help Ootori practice. They become overwhelmed by his Neo Scud Serve and give up. They go to a nearby vending machine and then discuss Ootori's power.
Playing Style and TechniquesEdit
Since he is in more of the lower Courts in the U-17 camp, he cannot play tennis very well despite the fact that he is a highschooler.
