Takamura doesn't like getting 1up by anybody, especially from Aoki.

He had to copy Aoki and added something to it. hahahahaha =O =O =O XD

!!Spiller Alert!!
Not to mention, he has no Sunday punch.
It gets stupider as he unfolds to look for it. hahahaha XD

So far the anime is doing a good job of showing the viewer how sadistic Sawamura truly is.




















Too bad they didn't show us the full picture of what went on in the disqualification by elbow bout, like they did in the manga.

Brutal...

Currently, I am around episode 61 of season 1. I'll probably catch up soon but damn, the Ippo franchise is intense so far.

Saw that you finished the entire series in the "last anime you watched" thread. What was your overall impression of the series?





Oh and Volg getting coerced into polishing the Takamura statue reminded me that this thing actually exists on top of a boxing gym in Japan.

Good episode. Now Ippo has a counter to the counter. Should be a great and brutal fight.

I've recently caught up with Hajime no Ippo and it's been quite a ride. I mean it as an enjoyable ride with all the action, intensity, and drama going on between every character and matches. Ippo is one guy I respect in the show for his hard work and determination whom initially debuted as an underdog. Most of his matches also develops well with the opponents he fights with and one of my personal favorite fights so far is him taking on Vorg in season 1.

I also love the character development in the franchise through its clever usage of flashbacks, in-ring interactions, and the personalities of almost every character so far.

As of now, there's going to be another major fight coming up and a familiar face comes back later. I won't spoil it for you but it's going to be quite fun for this current season.

Thanks for the info. I've actually read most of the manga so I think I know what fight you're talking about. This Sawamura fight should be really good.

If I recall correctly the creator of the manga has his own, legit boxing gym and put the Takamura statue on top. Can't remember what part of Japan it's in.

Episode 10

Bloody awesome literally. That was quite a vicious episode despite not even taking place in the ring. As for Sawamura, I sincerely hop he gets the ass kicking of a life time for what he did to Kumi this episode.

"You didn't miss. I dodged". He wish. In that ring, I hope Ippo will hit him for good.

Idk why but this reminds me of Hisoka:
