I don't think you will enjoy it if you haven't seen the first two seasons.
Rising is the sequel of New Challenger, which was the sequel of the first season.
It's not what one would call an episodic anime, since it runs a solid story line from the start.

You could watch for the epic fights but expect you'd be confused with the names and story.

Ippo's d*ck is bigger so he wins by default.

Really looking forward to this. Unluckily I got the news while rewatching the first series, but I was able to postpone rewatching the rest until now.

I'm looking forward to some Ippo fights and from the pic what looks to be an Aoki fight. I hope he gets one like Kimura.

Just registered with crunchyroll upon hearing the news as I'm a big fan of both the anime and the manga as well. Also,

Takamura>Ippo...


I completely agree. Takamura is more entertaining both inside and outside of the ring, fights better competition, and is moving through different weight classes like it's no big deal. Ippo is good, but he's no Takamura.

I wonder if Ippo takes off all his clothes front of people in the anime since the episodes will start from the title match defense with Shimabukuro.

Ey yo, this might be the wrong place to say it, but if we had Hajime No Ippo with an all female cast, I'd be watching it.

What the.... I'm gone for 24 hours and when I come back this is what I see. CRUNCHYROLL IS BRINGIN' US THE DEMPSEYROLL!!!!!

Never in a million years did I think CR would get this. I was already happy Kuroko, Magi and whatever other new random anime they got.

So basically there a new season of Ippo... and CR is streaming it. Oh happy days.

How soon might we expect this show to be subtitled? I imagine the simulcast would just be in Japanese w/o subtitles, correct?

Nice try, but Aoki is the best.
