Synopsis

Yabuki Joe is left downhearted and hopeless after a certain tragic event. In attempt to put the past behind him, Joe leaves the gym behind and begins wandering. On his travels he comes across the likes of Wolf Kanagushi and Goromaki Gondo, men who unintentionally fan the dying embers inside him, leading him to putting his wanderings to an end. His return home puts Joe back on the path to boxing, but unknown to himself and his trainer, he now suffers deep-set issues holding him back from fighting. In attempt to quell those issues, Carlos Rivera, a world renowned boxer is invited from Venezuela to help Joe recover.

Joe Yabuki is a young man from the slums who recently came out of juvy where he met his rival Toru Rikkishi. Sadly, this season spoils the conclusion of said rivalry as the events are featured in its 1970's 1st season which should be watch first. This sequel continues where the original anime left off giving a slight recap of events as it moves forward with the themes of the story. The many challenges Joe faces are the consequences for boxing & the permanent damage he delivers to his opponents along with Joe's own torment. Joe's life is full of grief, hope, & commitment to read more

Ashita no Joe 2 started out a little bit lacking, but quickly became so addictive that I made time to watch all 47 episodes within 1 week. I found it to be slightly less appealing than the original Ashita no Joe series, though it's still amazing.

The beginning of this one overlaps with the later part of the original series. Having watched the first Ashita no Joe series, I immediately spotted some differences. To me, it looked like a lot of details were removed and that they aimed to make it more sportsman-like. The read more

The story of the heroic story of a wonderful atmosphere of a very mixed boxing and drama, at one time , Joe is also a personal hero will not be repeated in the world of Animes ever !

What distinguishes the personal is the His sarcasm - refuses to help others - and more ^_^

And the end of the anime is very impressive
I advise you to watch the series

I know that people think i'm Exaggerating by giving this old work 10 as an overall,but to be honest,i've seen so many anime in my life and non of those ever reach to the depth of my heart like Ashita no Joe did!

The art is amazing,and for me as and old school fan it's my Favorite style of drawing.
When you listen to the soundtracks i'm sure you will feel like if it was a solace for joe in his sadness times,or an encouragement in his heartiness times!

The characters are few,but they are special,specially Joe and Rikishi and i'm not going to say read more

Before Hajime no Ippo there was Ashita no Joe, same theme about boxing and only boxing.
If you like Hajime no Ippo you will most likely love Ashita no Joe season 1 and 2.
