    Came for the nostalgia and stayed for the beautiful view
    Boxers represent the quintessential story - as far as athletes are concerned - in that their careers are short, brutal, and glorious. This is especially true for Boxing in Anime and Manga (Ashita No Joe, Hajime No Ippo) which makes this story all the more worth watching.

    Buckle up for a fast rise and a beautiful, painful end because Ashita no Joe is back and we get to watch him kick-ass with ...

    ASMR the anime holy shet
    This anime gave me such good chills I was on edge and breathless. The sound effects are amazing, voice acting makes me tremble, and the music...my god. The first episode is a masterpiece without even considering the animation.

    No complaints about this anime at all. Watch it now.

    It's only Round 1 and I'm already invested.
    With it's beautiful art direction, smooth transitions, great voice acting, and compelling main character trying to decide what he wants out of life this anime is really going places.

    I've been hyped up from only the first episode and that doesn't normally happen with me. It takes a couple to usually fully lure me in but this one does it's job well.

    Highly recommended for fans of: Underdogs, ...

    Best anime of this season so far
    A classic underdog story about boxing with beautiful animation and art. It feels like a breath of fresh air after drowning in a sea of stories about cute girls doing cute things without a real sense of drama. This is the beginning of a a very promising directorial debut by You Moriyama. Just watch it.

    Not bad, so far so good!
    Megalobox is already great from episode 1. The art style, music and characters are great as well. It reminds me of an older - maybe 90's - type anime (prob from the animation) and the music sounds SO GOOD and fits right in with it. I don't really watch sport animes, but this is one I'm definitely going to watch!

    If Samurai Champloo and Cowboy Bebop had a child!
    My only complaint is that the resolution quality is lower, even with 1080p selected; perhaps out of personal choice?

    Past that, this anime has all that I want, and none that I don't.

    -Excellent hip-hop soundtrack
    -Old School Animation
    -Fluid Animation
    -Sound effects properly utilized
    -Interesting character design
    -Gritty setting

    Side note: The narrative seems typical, where JD ...

    Dragged in by the art, captured by the show.
    Megalobox is a show that sets a new bar for anime. With jaw dropping visuals, beautifully written music, and a set of characters so true to nature, that it feels like you're there, Megalobox promises to offer you wonderfully intense fighting sequences, incredible atmosphere that sucks you in, and forces you to come back.

    [Megaloboxing is on par with regular boxing, as we know it, ...

    Great boxing anime from multiple angles.
    Firstly I was immediately impressed with the quality of the drawing and animation. They are done in an older style, but they are done with the quality of the best of the older style. Very aesthetically pleasing. The story is that of a Megalo Boxer, which is essentially boxing with arms that have been mechanically augmented.

    The characters are good. The atmosphere is good. The storytelling and ...

    Sports anime really arent my thing...
    But it looked interesting, and one episode in Im already a fan. Great action, soundtrack, animation, and flow with a very 90's feel to it all around. I have a feeling this is going to be my top anime of the season. Ill update this review if my opinion changes, but if not, I'll stick to what I said.
