Tetsuya Kakihara

Krauser Liliadent (リリアデント 蔵兎座 Ririadento Kurauza) is a 1st year exchange student from Nagoya Seitoku.

Appearance

Krauser has long blonde hair and is of Western foreign origins.

Personality

He is seen speaking to both his old teammates from Nagoya Sei, Yagyuu, Atobe, and Ryoma in English. He is described as a ruthless person on the court that crucifies his opponents. Kirihara described him as "annoying" when Kite asked who Krauser was (in reference to Kirihara's match against Krauser during the National Semi Finals). He has yet to let anyone call him by his surname, perhaps due to his Western upbringing.

His overall Japanese is quite polite, most likely due to the fact that he is still learning the language.

History

Nationals

NS Uniform Krauser

Krauser in his Nagoya Seitoku uniform.

Nagoya Seitoku defeats Yamabuki Middle School in the National quarter finals and moves onto the semi finals to face Rikkaidai.

In both the manga and anime, he plays Akaya Kirihara and nearly "crucifies" him. However, due to Kirihara tapping into devil mode, Krauser loses the match 7-5.

U-17 Camp

After the nationals, he is invited to the U-17 Training Camp and defeats his partner Richard Sakata 7-1 in the tiebreaker eliminations match (7-0 in the manga), "crucifying" him. In the manga, Sakata had tripped Krauser prior to their match, but this was not shown in the anime.

Krauser, after being defeated by Nakagauchi.

Krauser enters the 5th court, and during the 3rd vs 5th court shuffle, he loses to Nakagauchi Sotomichi by forfeit despite "crucifying" the high schooler many times. Nakagauchi then carries the fallen Krasuer off the courts, and tells Oni that Krauser will become strong, to which Oni replies "I know." Also, Kirihara originally badmouths Krauser during the start of the match because of his grudge against Krauser's crucification (Nationals), but eventually comes to support Krauser after watching him play. Kirihara even says that he will get revenge on the 3rd court for Krauser as he and Shiraishi get ready for Doubles 2 match against them.

During Krauser's match with Nakagauchi, it is revealed through flashbacks there that while the rest of his foreign exchange teammates went back to their home countries, Krauser stayed behind because he was upset that they lost to the Japanese Middle Schoolers, whom they had believed to be weaklings in a country where tennis was underdeveloped. He questions why they lost to the Japanese middle schoolers, whom they had all looked down upon.

Though he lost, the 5th court ultimately wins and he and the other 5th court members end up swapping places with the 3rd court members.

Playing Styles and Techniques

Liliadent Krauser is an aggressive player and defeats his opponents by crucifying them. Liliadent is perhaps the strongest foreign exchange student from Nagoya Seitoku. It seems that he has never lost a match before losing to Akaya since his teammates were shocked that he allowed a ball to fly pass him. He is strong enough to defeat Akaya Kirihara before the latter entered Devil Mode. As shown in Chapter 31 of The New Prince of Tennis, Krauser's breakdown is 3 in Speed, 3 in Technique, 2 in Stamina, 2 in Mentality and 5 in Power.

Hopping Ball

Hopping ball

The hopping ball in action.

The ball goes downwards but suddenly curves upwards towards the opponents face without hitting the ground. It is shown in New Prince of Tennis that Krauser also uses his Hopping Ball to not only hit his opponent, but to also create the cross which he embeds his opponent in.

Haritsuku Gomen (Dismissal by Crucification)

1TF9N2 480

Krauser 'crucifying' Kirihara during the National semi-finals.

It is the ball that Krauser hits to embedd his opponent into the cross/grave post that he created with his Hopping Balls. When he hits Haritsuku Gomen, it looks very similar to the Hopping Ball at the beginning; however, once it comes closer to the opponent, the ball blurs, creating an illusion of many balls forming a cross and that it is impossible to dodge. As the ball connects with the opponent, Krauser says, "Bear the cross and suffer..."

Southern Cross

Much like Haritsuku Gomen, Krauser also uses Southern Cross to embed his opponents into the fence. However, unlike Haritsuku Gomen, Southern Cross does not have a gravepost made from the Hopping Ball hitting the fence. Instead the cross is created by the opponent's body as it crashes into the fence from the force and power of Southern Cross crashing into them.
