  • 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 ...

  • Get Pumped up for Boxing!
    I am one who is typically not interested in most sports. I do occasionally watch the, but they don't hold too much interest for me. Now, when a friend of mine talked about Hajime No Ippo, I did not think I would become a fan of this show. I mean it's about boxing, it's grounded in reality, it does jazz it up a bit to make it more interesting, but otherwise it's boxing. But this show has something ...

    Watch the first 2 seasons first!!!
    I hate boxing. Dumb, overrated, and senseless. At least that is what I used to think. OK, stand alone, this is an excellent anime about a group of boxers (starring Makunouchi Ippo) and the fights they face and trials up to, and during, the fights. The characters are very very lovable, relatable, and consistent. The fights themselves and brilliantly done and they literally keep you on the edge of ...

    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.
