THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
GREAT EPISODE! I love how they did Hawk's I will give your women my genes speech! I love the Light Yagami edge they gave it. And I'm surprised that they were able to fit it in Ippo's fight with Yi Yonsu



for those who care, hawk's trainer miguel zeel is played by iizuka shozo the voice of nappa and hacchan from dragon ball, barragan from bleach, mr. heart and budou from hokuto no ken, tiger ozaki from ashita no joe and ryu jose from gundam

this episode pissed me off a great deal, but before i get into that i will get into what i thought was good.

THE GOOD:

- I really liked the gene speech myself and loved how they gave it a feel like it was a scene from deathnote ( i see i'm not the only one who noticed that ) , the whole conference was handled really well

- The animation was pretty nice and fluid for the most part

- Hawk's VA does an amazing job

THE BAD:

- The pacing for this episode annoyed the fuck out of me, they fit in way too much material and it ruined a lot of the dramatic effect from scenes such as the kamogawa talk and the talk between ippo and takamura, it just felt way too rushed, that and the fact they even put in the entire yi yonsu fight, i know it's a short fight but fucking hell they rushed it when it could have been left for 5 minutes at the start of the next episode (if that) and then end the next episode just as hawk and takamura enter the ring (no chance of that), they then could have slowed down the whole ippo and takamura speech to add for dramatic effect and even not have had to get rid of the ippo and kamogawa talk in order to make the time limit!

- Another prime example of shitty pacing being the ammount of time it took between the women entering Hawk's spar to the guy getting knocked out, Hawk must have became 'the flash'.

This director is getting on my nerves, nishimura please come back and bring tsuneo too!

And i hope to god they end with the Hawk fight and don't animate the backstory arc which follows, they should just make that into an OVA and have the old team handle it.

Overall 3/5

yeah, i wonder why nishimura is taking so much time with the trigun movie. lets hope he goes back to hni after this. but i can over look the flaws you pointed out since i really wanted to see hawk's conquest speech the most

according to an article on ANN, nishimura is appearing at some anime con i think this month to discuss the trigun movie, so maybe then we will get an end date, i mean i like trigun but i love HNI and the trigun movie was meant to be done like a year ago, what could be taking so long.

Hawk's speech was really good, even i can find no fault with how that was handled, just the other stuff which pissed me off basically.

EDIT:

nishimura will be at AX 2009 in july.

Sweet. Hawk just gives off the vibe of the bad guy.

Best ep this season. :D
The pace was a bit too fast for my taste.

Pretty much the exact same way I felt, that press conference was intense, I kinda wanted to charge at Hawk and take a swing at him myself, I don't know how Takamura was able to restrain himself.

Wow. This was the best anime episode I've seen in a long time in regards to excitement. I just wanted to scream out loud by the time it ended. IPPOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!! Seriously. I can't wait to see Takamura's title fight. They've built it up so great. Bring it on!

This has to have been the worst animated episode yet. There was next to no animation besides the Dempsey Roll during Ippo's fight, and even that looked like a series of about 8-10 pictures on a loop. Hawk has to be one of the most horrible characters I've ever seen in a show. His whole presence is ludicrous, and that crap that they were doing with him in the press conference was terrible.

Besides that, the stuff with Takamura was good, but there wasn't really much to go with.
