Synopsis

Makunouchi Ippo has been bullied his entire life. Constantly running errands and being beaten up by his classmates, Ippo has always dreamed of changing himself, but never has the passion to act upon it. One day, in the midst of yet another bullying, Ippo is saved by Takamura Mamoru, who happens to be a boxer. Ippo faints from his injuries and is brought to the Kamogawa boxing gym to recover. As he regains consciousness, he is awed and amazed at his new surroundings in the gym, though lacks confidence to attempt anything. Takamura places a photo of Ippo's classmate on a punching bag and forces him to punch it. It is only then that Ippo feels something stir inside him and eventually asks Takamura to train him in boxing. Thinking that Ippo does not have what it takes, Takamura gives him a task deemed impossible and gives him a one week time limit. With a sudden desire to get stronger, for himself and his hard working mother, Ippo trains relentlessly to accomplish the task within the time limit. Thus Ippo's journey to the top of the boxing world begins.

Hajime no Ippo follows the story of Ippo Makunouchi's rise to fame as a pro boxer. In addition to Ippo, the fights of many of his friends and rivals are also depicted.

The third anime series, Hajime no Ippo: Rising, picks up from where the second series, Hajime no Ippo: New Challenger, left off (Post-Battle of Hawk).

I'm looking forward to this, but the sad thing about Ippo is that it's not even going to approach anything close to a conclusion. The ippo manga has been running for 24 years with no signs of stopping. I gave up reading it a long time ago.

I'm usually not one for sports anime, but the Ippo series have always been fantastic at building tension and delivering punches that show real impact. The first time I saw the "completed" Dempsey roll it gave me shivers.

I haven't seen the previous two series.... Would I be able to enjoy this season ? Or do I HAVE to watch the previous ones if I want to understand/enjoy the show. I know it's popular and good, but I've never seen it and I'm quite interested so I would like to get what those of you who have seen them think
