Tennis Club Guide (p. 260-261)
A man that holds the ultimate charisma leads over 200 members!
This year was a very turbulent season for Hyotei. They were defeated by the dark horse Fudomine in the Tokyo regionals and had to accept the consolation slot for the finals. They also lost the Kantou tournament preliminaries. Getting their pride destroyed strengthened their appetite for victory. Lead by Atobe, they once again stand to regain their lost pride!
Hyotei Topics 1
Extra invitations lead them to Nationals!
Being selected for the extra invitation once again opened their cut-short road to Nationals. Their strong desire to go to the nationals brought this opportunity to them. However, being selected to participate as such lead them to vow that they stand on top and show everyone the true strength of Hyotei.
“Hey Atobe! Even if it’s just an extra invitation we can still go to Nationals!!” – Mukahi Gakuto
Even if they were just selected through an extra invitation they still cannot hide their joy.
Hyotei Topics 2
They held the expectations of the entire student body!
The Hyotei tennis club has focused their lives on club activities. When the news of them making it to nationals reached the students, the shouts of joy echoed throughout the whole school. The loud cheers gave the club members confidence.

Close up!! Super Gorgeous! Perfect training environment
An environment where players can comfortably practice; it has a practice area for when it rains and a well lit court for night practices.
There is a place for night trainings until right before tournaments.
Let’s check out Hyotei Uniforms!
7 lines on the right shoulder
The simple seven lines symbolize the seven regulars of Hyotei.
Ice Blue represents them
The light blue vividly complements the blankness of the white. This is the same color for the jersey that goes on top.
An exquisite balance between the left and right side leaves a polished feel.
An episode straight from the members!
Mukahi: “Oi Yuushi! Kabaji’s hogging the PC!”
Oshitari: “I think he’s doing Atobe’s daily report…that’s way too long.”
Atobe Keigo (3rd year)
The charismatic man that stands above 200 members, his unparalleled skills and overwhelming presence truly commands attention.
From the coach!
“I only believe in strength. Climb up to the top with your own strength.”

The finest art will course through your 5 senses
Hyotei Gakuen does not only focus on academics or sports, it also places an emphasis on the arts. We are blessed with an environment where we can experience magnificent art and we should take the opportunity to enjoy it.
Classic films are shown in this 150-seater theatre room.
Since the middle school department’s A/V room has become dated, they are now sharing their facilities with the high school department. This facility is equipped with the latest acoustics and projectors to give off a more realistic experience.

Fall’s new desert: Gelée Royale
This unique desert is the creation of a patisserie that trained and stayed in Paris. Its French name means “King’s jelly”.

A crown on top of the Gelée is a decoration.
Enriching elegance through remarkable experiences
The school life of a student can be enriched if they can effectively spend their short time immersing themselves in an excellent environment, even if it’s just for a short period.
The winter international exchange student programs are now open for applications
To become a person recognized worldwide…
It is important to have a defined goal when participating for the international exchange student program. Depending on their goal, students can choose from the 4 international sister schools listed on the school recommended plan.

Music Teacher/Tennis Club Adviser Sakaki Tarou (43): “Excellent experiences make an excellent person. A person need not hesitate when aiming to be the best. One should know how vast the world is.”
French Literature Fair begins

Main line up:
Romain Rolland / Arthur Rimbaud / Paul Valér / André Paul Guillaume Gide
Cultural Department Member Taki Haginosuke: “Good job liking French Literature. I recommend reading Romain Rolland.”
Beauty & Health
Let’s build beautiful and healthy bodies
Sports is not only about developing the body it is also about the spirit. The joy of winning and the frustration of loss are experiences that cannot be gained in everyday life. Using those emotions as a source of encouragement, let’s train our mind and body and aim for true healthiness.
The male tennis club is ranked 8th nationwide!!
– Oshitari Yuushi’s S3 match versus Seigaku during the quarterfinal matches.
– Shishido & Ootori Pair’s brilliant win during the D1 match
Irreplaceable experiences learned through sports
Last year ended with good results as the male tennis team surpassed the best 16. Their high level play from the nationals gave us a very irreplaceable excitement. Even though they were unable to win, their tennis will be remembered for bringing honor to Hyotei.
Information: On the spot coverage of the sports meet team selection
The preparations for the October sports meet had finally started. The meeting of the team divison representatives decides the fate of the sports meet matches. This is one of the best moments of fall.
