THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
I am pissed that they didn't do Hawk's plea to shake hands in his Engrish. I always thought Ueda Yuuji would make a great Hawk, but I guess Akio Ohtsuka is ok

Sound direction in this ep was great, as was the fight overall. The sheer excess of Takamura calling himself -sama twice in the same sentence was the cherry on top of it all.

This series seems to have hit its stride in the last two episodes. I'm totally looking forward to the Battle of the Hawks without worries about bungling now.

wasn't a bad episode but i didn't think it was handled too good either. The pacing is just far too fast, i know the episodes are only 20 minutes long instead of 25 minutes now but the director needs to learn that he doesn't need to rush through shit tons of material and place it into one episode, i feel this has been ruining the emotion and drama portrayed in the scenes throughout this second season, the same for this fight as well, when i read this fight in the manga i thought it was a proper tense situation, whilst in this i just felt it was rushed so quickly, even takamura's ring out just failed to get a rise out of me.

judging by the pacing the next episode will cover
and i suspect by episode 19 the fight will begin and the anime will end with
which if it does is incredibly rushed, oh well here's hoping it works out in the end.

I knew there was no way that fight could last more than an episode. Takamura's comeback is so retardedly GAR as is the comment following the match. Nothing like the always pompous Takamura referring to himself as ore-sama as well. We love you, Taka. So glad to see they didn't tone down Hawk either, ahahahaha. I love that crazy bastard. I was gonna say they shoulda borrowed someone from the Eden of the East English crew to voice Hawk, but that was magnificent. Can't wait for the interview scene now, that was so ridiculously intense, hope it adapts well.

Course, maybe it'll slow down and we'll get season five >.>

I was surprised how fast the fight went. It felt a bit longer in the manga for some reason. But I did like how they did a montage through the fight like a classic Rocky movie which I thought was cool.

Anyway


After playing some Street Fighter IV in Japanese, Akio Ohtsuka as Seth has convinced me he can do some menacing voices.

I wasn't really impressed by the episode. It wasn't bad, but it definitely had more bravado than it could put up for.

Tasty Japanese women, don't really see the significance of it. I thought Takamura would be pissed that Hawk wasn't there to scout.

It is also one of my favourite bits too next to the hawk fight, i just hope the director doesn't fuck it up, but honestly when this season ends i hope they wait for nishimura to finish with the trigun movie so he can resume his position as director of ippo again before making any new seasons/episodes

So, uh. What was so creepy about that last scene? Why was everyone freaking out?

Unless Hawk is confessing to be a cannibal or something (which would be...odd), what's wrong with saying that you like to eat Asian women?

Cuz japanese media is used to boxers being humble and respectful? So slight sexual reference shocks them. We are talking about a country that censors porn, remember?

That's how i understood it at least, i don't know.

Yeah, basically Hawk is a giant pervert and has no respect for the sport, that's what pissed Takamura off. He doesn't train and he spends more time screwing around with some women than bothering to even focus on the game, so when he came in and said he came for the delicacy of Japanese women, Takamura was infuriated. Also, it was the disrespect that Hawk showed towards Japan as a nation by saying the only reason he came was to indulge in sexual pleasure of their women. Do also keep in mind Ippo is still 20ish at this point, which puts this about 15 years behind us. Couple this alongside the fact Japan is still a semi-racist nation in the sense that they wish to keep everything internal(their superior genes in particular >:( ), it doesn't help.

In my previous post I mentioned the press conference scene, and this side of Hawk is HUGELY fleshed out there, haha.

That's the delicious irony of this fight/match up, neither of them wants to admit it though, obviously.
