ippo no ;_;
it's going to be another namek match.
Why doesn't Ippo have brain damage?
Why doesn't someone teach him to fucking dodge?
so another ippo match basically
Have you even been reading this match or did you think you can just tune in whenever you want and offer your uninformed opinion?
Don't worry, just before Ippo touches the ground he will somehow be able to keep standing and then turn the match around through GUTS and sheer WILL. That's when his useless coach will tell him to PUNCH HARDER and that he has MOAR OXYGEN in his muscles.
more ghost hands propping him up
more flying popsicle sticks
Maybe Ippo can become the limbo world champ
Man he's getting his shit kicked in. I hope he doesn't get a bullshit will again, it's been a while since Ippo had a fucking normal boxing match.
>ippo dodges a bunch of those heat seeking punches
>ippo punched the guy in the guts
>guy looks like he's about to puke out his mouthpiece
>ippo gets hit in retaliation
Looks like a fairly even match. Are we even reading the same manga or are you just another animefag?
Nah, I've been following the manga since New Challenger. Still, they keep foreshadowing "ippo ur week" so I don't know.
The "Ippo has gotten weaker" thing was a red herring.
If anything Ippo is finally using his brains for once and relying on skills rather than punching power.
That's true too, I guess. I mean the whole Takamura having eye damage shit was really retarded too.
He also keeps dangling the "aokimura retirement" thing in front of us to stir up drama, when it's best to just keep them as comedic relief
Though Aoki has found a good nemesis
>tfw Kimura is your favorite character
>tfw the Mashiba fight was the most cash, most greatest, most best of all time shit you ever saw
>tfw it will never fucking happen again
I let myself grow attached to him, I am the one to blame here. The Dragonfish will never fly again.
At least this can never be Woli-tier.
Anyone who doubted Morikawa's ability to write a tedious, depressing fight with an unsatisfying conclusion is a fool.
Anyone else want to see Takamura get the living shit beaten out of him?
I love the guy, but seriously he needs to get humbled.
I wonder what his next opponent will be like. I mean damn we have like 4 more title matches for takamura WHEN WILL THIS MANGA END
I liked the fight, but i couldn't get over how fucking stupid Kimuras new punch was. When you do that, you know knock someone out, you dislocate your fucking shoulder, and that's something i can vouch for first hand.
I'd like to see him lose one, even if just for the hilarious Takamura butthurt that would ensue. And not to a guy like Hawk, but an actual opponent like David Eagle who is just plain better, no fuss about it.
I was rooting for David the whole time during their fight to be completely honest with you.
Oh no, he gets punched in the face, like THAT never happened before
Me too actually. I would be completely down for a rematch between them as well.
You know, with all the training, experience, that exceptional built, you'd think he could hold up a decent fight at one point.
But no, somehow, he always gets his ass whooped before he turns the whole match around in one single moment through sheer bullshittery.
It might not have happened in this fight right now, but it sure will.
Did you try and emulate a comic book character?
I think you're the only stupid one here.
No, i have a bad shoulder, so I'm fairly familiar with exactly what will pop it out. I've dislocated my right shoulder like 6 times now.
I think this match is fairly equal right now. Takamura said it, he's just using his body to take hits and figure out his pattern.
Well, I DO hope this fight will break the mold of history repeating in this manga, or else, this will drag on forever.
Of course, Ippo has rarely ever faced anyone that wasn't in some way superior to the last guy he faced, he's practically forcing his way to the top, of course all his fights are hard as fuck. He's always challenging above his level.
Eh, the Ippo fights before this were less boxing and more shonen.
>retard strength guy
>le epic tricks guy
>natural genius uses every technique ever guy
>ill make u angry ippo-san guy
>Ippo is fighting the 2nd best Featherweight Boxer in the world
>Surprised he gets hit
Hell the fact he even dodged any of his punches is an amazing plot twist that I never saw coming
It was the same way when he was the champ and got challenged.
I expected him to eat shit in the most embarrassing way possible.
Jimmy Sisfer was less Retard Strength and more 'So Punch Drunk that he's using a Double Edged Move with no regard for his safety'
Gedo and Woolie where shit though.
That fight really came out of the left field. I was expecting filler, got one of the best fights of the series.
I miss hajime no woli
So what does everyone think about the shittiest character that is Itagaki?
Annoying little prick.
I liked him and his family at the start, but his character development completely ruined anything he had going for him. I wonder if he'll eventually drop out and end up like Geromichi.
I think that I hate the voice actor they chose for Itagaki in the Anime.
So, new chapter? Neat. Only 15 more, released over a string of 5 months to keep the pace going eh?
It was nice to see him rekt in his last match.
Oh, wow a whole 7 pages. Aren't we lucky.
When will Ippo develop dementia?
The author couldn't finish the chapter because he was hospitalized bro.
Source? Fuck I'm gonna feel bad if you're telling the truth.
To be honest I think this is the best Ippo fight in a long, long time. It's still not amazing yet but leagues better than Woli, Gedo, Scratch J and fucking Kojima.
Then feel bad. The source is the block of text on the last page.
Had this chapter continued the way it was supposed to, I'm willing to bet that ippo swing back at Alf in the very next panel.
Well thanks for saying. I did see that part at the end, but due to my inability to read Japanese I thought nothing of it.
Oh shit will he be okay?
They're all Namek matches. You just don't notice until you catch up and read them weekly.
Guess who used to be his assistant. Kentaro Miura.
It's a curse.
By far the most punchable character in the show.
OH FUCK WE'LL NEVER GET OFF MEXICO
>mfw Gero-michi reappears and beats the shit out Itagaki
>Itagaki's got one Ippo in the grave
I would pay so much to see this.
So what, does he get smug as shit or something later on? I really gotta find time to restart the manga since I dropped off it years ago, around the Kamogawa flashback chapters, I think.
He goes full retard. Wanting to challenge Ippo and shit IIRC
Of course he wants to challenge Ippo, Ippo is the champion.
Also that weird moment when he reaches out to Ippo all demon faced.
