My Prince (わたしの王子様 "Watashi no Ouji-sama") is the 134th episode of the original Prince of Tennis series.
Kurumi, a young and insecure girl who has lost her will to pursue her dream, becomes infatuated with Fuji and gets a date from him. Meanwhile, Momoshiro, Ryoma and Kikumaru befriend the person who unwittingly crushed little Kurumi's illusions... her own little sister Narumi.
Summer vacation continues and Seigaku has early practices. Ryoma, Momoshiro, Kikumaru, and Fuji are leaving practice when they run across an elementary school girl who is being chased by two junior high school boys. They claimed that she purposely stained their precious shirts but in a flashback it shows that she definitely didn't mean to. When running away from the mean boys she trips on a tennis ball and Fuji catches her. She is totally blown away by his kindness. The Seigaku regulars stand up for the girl and the bullies retreat.
The seigaku regulars and the girl go to a hamburger shop where they find out that this girl's name is Ijuin Kurumi. She asks Fuji out on a date and Eiji and Momo accept for him much to Fuji's uncomfort. The next day she meets Fuji at the school gate where he agrees to go anywhere she wants. They go to a costume play Puri-kura (photo sticker booth) shop, for lunch, to an amusement park, and a zoo.
Kikumaru, Momoshiro, and Ryoma are all trying to find Fuji when they meet Kurumi's twin sister Narumi. Narumi lets them know that Kurumi actually really enjoys tennis and was disappointed when she lost the elementary school tournament to her sister. Kurumi quit tennis after that but if it weren't for Kurumi, Narumi would've never won the tournament.
Seigaku tries to set it up so that the sister can meet and forgive each other but Kurumi runs off saying that Narumi will never understand her feelings. Fuji goes after Kurumi to tell her that her sister not has pity on her, but tries to show her gratitude. Kurumi feels better after this and forgives her sister. Seigaku brings the girls back to their house where Kurumi gives Fuji a nice farewell gift.
