  • Takamura is overshadow of ippo
    They really need to make up their minds how is going to be the leader of this anime or story. Ippo has already lost twice in cording to the manga and takamura is some god that he never loses and the coach keeps praising him. Who story is this ippo or takamura, priories need to be made, I only see one fight of ippo for a couple of episodes then they they put takamura for the finisher final as the ...

  • Heading back in a positive direction
    I was a bit worried when I started this anime because, though I loved the first season (5 our of 5 stars), I only thought the movie okay (3 out of 5) and kind of hated the second season (2 out of 5-almost rage quit several times). Luckily, this was much better than the second season. One of the key reasons was they backed off on the romance. As much as I love romance in shows in general, I'm ...

  • Waiting For More Seasons
    I've only recently got into anime and manga being 17 years old, but this is the first anime I chose to watch because an old friend recommended to me. I was interested in boxing since i was 10 and this anime portrays many of the hardships boxers had to go through including the rough road to world champ many people dream of and the way it is portrayed in this anime is incredible and i believe ...

  • Emotion, Tension, Action, and Humor! This show's got it!
    I've never seen any of the other Hajime No Ippo anime or read any of the manga, so I really didn't know what to expect when I started watching. I was pleasantly surprised by this series and I would say it was one of the better sports anime I have seen so far. Lots of action, lots of humor, and the characters weren't annoying. Here's my brief summary of the series without giving away too ...

  • Wish there was more to this
    Hard to get enough of this series. The amazing build up to fights and the actual fights, the hilarious faces and personality of the characters and a bit of romance to top it all off. This has been one of my all-time favorite series for a long time. A must watch for anyone who loves sports anime and comedy.

  • You just can't miss it !
    One of the greatest animes I have seen and certainly a fighting/sport anime you can't do without. You will follow young Ippo as grows from a shy high-school boy into a great sportsman and fierce boxer. Many secondary characters are great and compelling. Also, even though the fighting is terribly good, there really is more to this anime than just that. The trainning cycles are nice and the ...

  • My Favorite Anime. Inspiring!
    Not unrealistic, good fight scenes, great character development, a little romance and drama. If you don't feel motivated after watching the first fight I don't know what will. Ippo's story is both sad and inspiring. Watching him rise through the ranks is remarkable.

  • Rising standards of animation and storytelling
    I've watched the original series to this one and the progress is beautiful.
    -Animation is a cut above the rest.
    -Voice acting is still great however some characters had some minor personality adjustments made.
    -Soundtrack whilst repetitive at times, is still very nice to listen to.

    Overall the show has only improved and digged further into character's backstories just as the original did ...

  • Cheer for the underdog!
    This is the Rocky of anime. It will tug at your heart strings and leave you starving for more. The action is very well drawn and the animation is great! You can feel every punch. You'll want another season so badly you'll barely be able to stand it. A triumph in anime history.

  • Amazing series - wish the manga as available in English also!
    I have watched the entire anime series a few times. It's the only sports anime that I like (I hate sport anime as a genre, actually!) The characters are hilarious and develop well over the course of the seasons. Ippo goes from being a kicked around kid at the mercy of bullies to being the best boxer in his weight class. This is also a fun anime to watch as a martial artist because everything here ...
