  • Another amazing season
    Hajime No Ippo is a great series especially for any fan of battle manga. It has great pacing a a really good power curve (something that is often a problem in battle manga). Unlike many other shows You get to watch Ippo grow over time and you see real progression in him. The fights are beautifully animated and each fights brings in new elements.

    I would definitely recommend any fan of sports ...

  • The Best Sports Anime
    This show got me into sports animes and it is the best at. Crunching devastating blows, intrigue and strategy, coupled with humor and wit. You really can't ask any more from an anime. I recommend watching at the beginning with Fighting Spirit Hajime no Ippo.

  • Simple Boxing Excellence
    Hajime No Ippo isn't deep. It is not complex. Like the characters it portrays and the real people that it intends to emulate, it wears all of its heart on its sleeve. But, that's the beauty of it. This show boils down the true spirit of sport fighting, whether it be Boxing, Karate, Tae Kwon Do, Jiu-Jitsu, or otherwise.

    I recommended this show to any sportsman, regardless of what their ...

  • One of the Best Series I've Ever Watched
    This is by far one of the best series I have ever had the pleasure of watching.

    It has all of the qualities a great anime should have; Inspiration, Story, Emotion, and absolutely fantastic editing.

    Definitely my most recommendable anime by far. If you haven't watched this series yet you are missing out on an absolute masterpiece.

    Why this show is AWESOME!
    What can I say? If I had to describe this series in 1 word it would be Masterpiece.

    The animation in this series is great, I like how they kept to the original animation but improved it overtime. The animation greatly supports the remarkable fights in this series thus making it one of the best action or sports anime to date.

    The sound is truly amazing, I love the fact that they added English ...

  • enjoy the last few ippo stories left
    Im an old time ippo fan, from the original 76 episode series to the movies and manga.
    the previous series wasnt really good mainly because of directorial issues, after all few can compete with Satoshi NISHIMURA.

    This one is much better again, doing a great job adapting the manga, the problem with ippo is the source material the creator Mr Morikawa, has been on a decline for the past ...

  • The perfect anime! Must watch!
    Really, its close to perfect. Intense realistic action (with obvious anime flair) with a solid understanding of the boxing sport. The comedy is spot on and not the usual weak attempts some anime try to pass as comedy. The characters are all likeable, animation is top notch when it matters (THE FIGHTS!) and everything/everyone has a reason to be there. A fantastic anime that I wish didn't end.

    A great combination of drama and comedy.
    This anime has the right formula.

    Between bouts, you have the comedy. Gym bros always trying to troll each other (except Ippo because he's too nice for that). Then you have the drama of Ippo's fights, sometimes Takamura who serves as the unreachable goal that motivates the rest.

    On the side you have a bit of romantic comedy with Ippo's many possible girlfriends but he's too passive to ...
