Tennis Ace is a visual novel following in the more traditional Japanese VN mold, with a lengthier prologue, a higher focus on characterization and anime-esque art.

In the game, you follow the life of an 18-year old boy who aspire to become a professional tennis player at the end of his senior year in high school.

The game has three dateable characters, all of them being part of the protagonist's inner circle of friends.

Updates will be posted here 14 days after they have been posted on Patreon, with updates coming out monthly.

Damn, I just wrapped up Keisuke's story so far. The dialogue writing is just so smooth that I am sore for having caught up with the demo this fast 

Ive followed this for a while, yet no notifications appeared when this updated.

I just got me an iPhone, does this game play on iPhones?


I'm not ashamed to admit that I cried multiple times during Jun's  route.

Such great story(ies), can't wait for the next update!


am i the only one who would wish that Yuuichi (MC) would come out on top in  a few more of the friendly/teasing arguments with his friends/Aki ?  not saying everytime but right now  it feels like he gets dunked on 80% of the time and when he has a good counter he only says it in his thoughts. 

thought there was an event  in the beginning in Juns concert  where he teased shoichi that i remember was fun. (Whos a good boy?)   :D


"I a- Wait a minute!"

I died at that part xD

Are there any chances that the author will add Haruki route? Make of this a story about the re-education of a bully growing into a love line. I want to Haruki route.

It is possible to add Haruki route to the game (very small chances anyway). But I don't think it will be added anytime soon, because it will probably delay the current game story progress, and creating a new route will taking a very long time and maybe mess the story a little bit.

Maybe it will added in dlc after the game main story finished I think. Because I remember the dev mention something about this before, if I'm not wrong 馃

Hmm how would you treat Aki if he was your little brother? Calling you hopeless and teasing you all the time? Would his cuteness let it slide? Would you tease him back? Personally I would try to find ways to tease him back or get a little bit of harmless payback.

Well I did have a little brother too, and he kinda act almost like Aki, but more jerky. He tease everyone in the house and make them upset and annoyed all the time. So sometimes I scold and hit him If he's gone too far. So I don't I'm going to be a good brother for Aki anyway xD

I feel like I ever hear this joke before.. Ah, it's the "You're not clown, you're a whole damn circus" joke...

I feel like something big gonna happen soon...


I love his expression sho-much till I use it for my pp

Ah yes, the accurate expression of 

"My whole life is a joke"


Well his dad is a living boomer meme, his potential boyfriend is so air headed he's a parody of himself and the rest of his friend circle follows at least one stereotype each so yeah  his life is a full comedy routine.


I sense this 'Suika' girl has a nice pack of watermelons...


This joke kills me

does anyone have a walkthrough with ways to get all the cg's in this vn? I accidentally cleared the cache and I can't figure out how to get just one cg

(1 edit)

which one, maybe i can help you (like say the page and which one it is or send a screenshot) 

(1 edit)

it would be very nice of you, I just need this one! 


Anyone have a Shoichi guide up to the part where... Spoiler

they sit on a park bench? Or the day where they ride a swan boat?  Like the day where Yuuchi tells Sho to stop or else he'll be afraid of Sho, I can't fully remember

Oh, that part comes after you ask Saya about relationship advice.

Yeah but like how do you get to that part again, hmm ohh like route a b and c

(1 edit) (+1)


Let put it simply...

Route A is Good

Route B is Bad

Route C is Really Bad


You can get Shoichi route A, if you made him meet his mother and not ruin the date. You can convince Shoichi to meet his mother by deciding to tell Saya the truth, telling him to ignore his father, say that it's not weird to collect the crane paper, stand up for Shoichi, be firm when apologize and don't shut up when talking about his mother. If at the lunch time he come to you with Saya, then everything goes as Route A, while if he come just to talk, then you will see he slowly but surely turn into his dad. Now, not to ruin the date part is just talk about college offer with Saya.

If you want to see the Route B, just not made him meet his mom and you'll see how manipulative he become soon.

Route C is "idk what it is" but maybe just being a mean, disrespectful, simple-minded, selfish being?

(1 edit)


Oh, also if the 27th day in Shoichi route you spent in School, then you know that you didn't success to convince Shoichi to meet his mother. 

While if the 27th day in Shouichi route you spent in home, you'll get a message from Shoichi telling you that he need help from you. At that time you successfully convince Shoichi to meet his mother.

Thank you for the guide


Yuuichi's reaction in Kei's route when Yuuya was being absentmindedly insulting was absolutely hilarious 

(1 edit)

i like the references to the other routes


like in Shoichi's route Yuu jokingly said not to get hit by a car when Jun said he wanted to go home while being sleep deprived for 2 nights

or in Jun's latest update where Shoichi was confessing to Yuu, and making an example of pouring his heart out in the sunset

please do not forget to put a spoiler warning, some people may not have reached these events in the novel yet




You know literally don't get this site I am following the Creator for this game and it didn't pop up on my feed what's up with that it works for the echo project visual novel but not this


Yeah i get the same thing, i didnt even know this released 7 hours ago. One time it didnt tell me until 1-2 days later.

I'm literally crying rn IT'S FINALLY HERE馃槶馃槶馃槶


Aww yeah boi


.55 is super close im stoked :>


Day 31 and I'm witnessing Keisuke with no arms. When I say that I'm currently unable to breath from laughter, I mean it.


The memes are bloody amazing


with the bit ware i date shoichi the day b4 the oc and his bro go to school and talk abut how them and shoichi are dateing the next day the oc is like what how do you know did i read it worng or did it hapen its fine if it did just want 2 know




I think he's talking about how Sho & Yuu talk about how Aki knows about them dating but then in the next day Aki mentions it and Yuu acts surprised as if he didn't know Aki knew they were dating. It confused me too.

His name is keisuke

 I know that I just couldn't remember how to spell that LOL I am having a problem unlocking one of the images for him LOL I keep getting image but not unlocking in the gallery I don't understand at all why it would happen like that


A current Patron here: The delay is over as Basky finally gave us a massive update of v0.55 which contains 5 days across the 3 characters, so sit tight and be ready for the massive content dump the next public release will be <3



any designated date for the public release?

If I remember right, before the delays patron updates became public updates 14 days after patreon would get them.

Can鈥檛 wait!


i spent 14 hours fucking straight on this game and if that doesn鈥檛 mean something good about it i don鈥檛 know what does 

Has anything been said about the delay? I don't think it's been this long before.
