I think it's fair to say that some of you (okay, a lot of you) were pretty excited about the announcement of a third anime adaptation for Hajime no Ippo, the boxing anime whose first series was released Stateside as Fighting Spirit. Coming this fall, the third series will officially be titled Hajime no Ippo Rising.
Here's hoping the next season is titled Hajime no Ippo Rising: Revengeance
In addition to the new title, some promo art was revealed, showing off series hero Ippo's character model, as well as some details including his match trunks and boots.
Here's a better look at the initial announcement pic, too:
Who's looking forward to getting back in the ring with Hajime no Ippo Rising? For those of you familiar with the series, do you think they're going to start Rising with the Ippo-Shimabukuro fight, or the post-WWII prizefighting arc?
