I've just got back into the Hajime no Ippo manga, and goddamn does it rock!!! anyone else reading it?
BTW: why didn't they continue the anime?
Of the few series I still follow.
Favourite sports series along with Slam Dunk.
As to why they didn't continue, dunno.
I love HNI and yeah season2 where? animation in the movie and OVA were awesome!
i heard the studio ran out of money after the featherweight arc. sucks.... i would've loved to see the takamura/brian hawk fight animated.
The ratings weren't the greatest, and the U.S. dubs didn't sell. Funny, this show would work great on say, ESPN Classic.
watching the anime now.
is the manga over? if not, is it near the end?
manga is at volume 83
I doubt it. Ippo isn't even Asian-Pacific champ yet, IIRC. So his adventure ain't over just yet.
ITT we celebrate the manliness of boxing
This story going to last until the mangaka is dead.
nope miyata's still higher on the totem. i can't wait see him take on randy boy jr!
Randy Boy Jr. is going to win, and finally pussy Miyata's going to retire.
Fuck Yes Ippo!
Manly tears where shed during Takamura vs Bryan Hawk.
Too bad the next Takamura fight isn't going to be epic.
Oh God, Ricky Mouse and Ronald Duck....
Suddenly: DEMPSEY ROLL
