Representing a sports anime that have over two decades of history, Hajime no Ippo Rising returns in this third installation of its previous predecessors. It only takes one ring to bring together a collective cast of colorful characters, superstars of all shapes and sizes under one goal: to make a name of themselves and earn the respect of the world. Hajime no Ippo Rising accords for a perfect example of an anime based on the foundation of its theme not only in boxing but also in exploring the dynamics of its characters. It’s their time to rise and shine.

Based off the manga of the same read more

Taking place where New Challenger leaves off, the series starts from Ippo vs Shimabukuro Iwao to the conclusion of the story of Kamogawa in his youth in Post World War II Japan. Naturally, a new anime installment of Hajime no Ippo did excite me. I mean, with New Challenger ending, the animators have nearly 60 volumes to catch up on as opposed to being 60 volumes ahead unlike a certain Studio Pierrot series which you can easily conclude is.

For now, I would mostly like to focus my personal issues with this season as someone who actively reads the manga and is up to date read more

First of all a big thanks to George Morikawa because he did something nearly impossible with Hajime no Ippo. He managed to keep his story interesting and his comedy fresh even after all these years. Sure it has it’s weaknesses(for example some short chapters in the manga plus some repeated stuff in the story etc) but it is still a great accomplishment that only a few are capable of.

The story is about Ippo a kid without any purpose in his life and fate decides to make a boxer out of him. This season focuses on his challenges to keep his special move sharp and fresh, read more

I think I just wrote review for this season in a panel made for Hajime No Ippo: new Challenger
Don't know how that happend but I will just copy the review here, my bad :/


Finally, we get to see Hajime no Ippo third season, titled "Rising"

The story continues, and that infinite grow of our hero Ippo is also following the epic story that this anime is offering.
I wouldn't call this an "normal" review, because I might be comparing this season to others and I will point out some most important notes that this season had to offer.

Events in this season:
- Ippo is still a champion read more

Anime: Shijou Saikyou no Deshi Kenichi
Both anime are about boxing (though in Kenichi it´s martial arts in general). Both main characters are nice and naive guys who start to train with the objective of learning what is to be “strong.” Both anime have some comedy in them. Ippo and Kenichi always get to fight stronger opponents, and they have to keep training desperately so they can win. And both training regimes are very extreme.
