Synopsis

Yabuki Joe is wandering around as if he escaped from the death of Rikiishi Toru. During his wandering journey, he meets Wolf Kanagushi and Goromaki Gondo. Their meeting arouses his fighting sprits, and Joe comes back to Tange Boxing Club. However, he has a fatal weak point. Because his punch on the temple killed Rikiishi, he can't hit on the temple. To make him recover, Shiraki Yoko invites a king without a crown, Carlos Libera, from Venezuela.

Joe Yabuki is a young man from the slums who recently came out of juvy where he met his rival Toru Rikkishi.

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.
