Kirihara's Red Trap is the 124th episode of the original Prince of Tennis series. The episode takes place during the Kanto Regional Finals between Seishun Gakuen VS Rikkai Dai Fuzoku. It is also aired on March 10, 2004.
Shusuke Fuji vs. Akaya Kirihara . This is the same person who continually hit shots at Kippei Tachibana and injured his ankle. Fuji isn't going to take this opponent lightly especially since he has great respect for Tachibana. Fuji begins the first game with an under serve, bruising Akaya's pride. In the second game he injures Akaya's pride even more with Higuma Otoshi . That's when Kirihara cracks and his eyes go bloodshot.
He plans now to injure Fuji just like in the Fudomine match. First he aims to Fuji's knee with a smash. He hits his knee a second time with the same move. And finally he serves a Knuckle Serve where it flies up into Fuji's face much like a twist serve. Fuji might be destroyed the same way that Tachibana was but he hasn't shown us his true potential yet.
