Hajime no Ippo

Apparently, they only have season 3 on Crunchyroll.

So, the main character is only a junior featherweight? And Takamura Mamoru, he's a middleweight?

What, no heavyweights?

Hmm, so featherweight tops out around 126 lbs.

And middeweight bottoms out at about 160.

All Ippo would need to do is put on 40 lbs, so he could fight Takamura Mamoru as a middleweight. Totally realistic and reasonable in an anime series. thumb up

Takamura is probably a natural light heavyweight, he just loses weight whenever he needs to compete in lower classes.

Are you caught up with the manga or just the anime? You like the series?

I've read the manga and seen some of the animations (boxing is dynamic enough to justify watching it in motion, even though the manga art is great). Real fun series.

The logic is that there aren't enough big guys in Japan to justify a heavyweight division.

Also if you're looking for realistic weight to body mass ratios this is not the best series for that lol.

That is a Featherweight.

He is 1 inch smaller than Ippo lol.

But hey there are sillier things in manga.

Takamura's goal is to become champion of each six weight classes (starting with junior middleweight and ending with heavyweight). Ippo is not a junior featherweight; he's a featherweight.

Anyways, the anime is waaaaaaaaay behind the manga. Not sure we'll ever get a complete anime adaptation. And at the rate the series is going, the author might die of old age before finishing it. sad

Skipped right to whatever's on Crunchy, which appears to be season 3 of the anime.

Yes, I'm liking it. Lot of good secondary characters, and villains/anti heroes seem interesting.

Takamura is great, what with his perpetually bored expression and backhanded compliments.

The end might be my favorite scene in the history of good scenes.

The look on Ippo's face. I think he pissed himself a little. laughing

Up to post rookie tournament, as Ippo's training for his mirror image boxing nerd from the South side.

Not even up to 100 chapters, and this thing runs in to the thousands. A looong way to go

Pretty funny seeing the some of the jokes. "A woman as a doctor?!" "Black guys are naturally have more spring in their step". laughing

Also kind of funny how Ippo struggles against EVERYONE. I get the hero is usually a perpetual underdog, but you get the impression if they put him up against a 3 year old, he'd barely squeek by a victory and somehow break every bone in his body trying. laughing out loud

But I guess winning with ease is Takamura's thing. Ippo is the hard working underdog, and Takamura is the mary sue the writer stuck into the background so he can write what he REALLY wants without criticism. smile

You joke but the hardest fight Ippo has ever had, except against the people he lost to obviously, was against a young dude who had only ever participated in 3 matches at that point and was Takamura levels of extreme talent.

Will look forward to it.

Kind of thought out of all the Rookie King competitors, the guy who gave him the toughest fight was the one who aimed for points and clinched/ran away. Because he had Ippo cold.. If he didn't get greedy, he would have won.

Ippo didn't beat him, his opponent beat himself.

That guy also beats Hayami later.

Saying the guy beat himself is a bit unfair though. Any competition involves mental fortitude and that guy simply lost his there at the end. It sucks but it happens.

The speedy guy at the start of his final road to the title certainly lost his mental fortitude. Ippo put some fear in him.

And if Takamura was there, he probably would have smacked Ippo for giving away a future opponents weakness to him. Now he'll work on varying his timing, so he'll never be tagged in someones blind spot..

He'll be back but sadly he simply gets left behind by Ippo and the others. His final fight is awesome but yeah it's not that big a deal.

That's a shame, he was a monster among monsters in that first fight.

I hate to say it, but Miyata is kind of an idiot. His obsession with Ippo is ruining his career, when he should really stick to junior lightweight/lightweight.

If he wants a rematch so bad, he can set up an exibition. Heck, a champ vs champ exibition bout would be a great draw, he could have aimed for that and fought Ippo when he's 100% healthy , instead of gimped by extreme dieting habits.
