Well, it’s going to be very confusing if you have not read the manga. Because the manga starts when Ryuji is 5 years old and it really builds up the rivalry and friendship he has with Jun, and how and why Ryuji got into boxing.

You might say, that RnK1 is like a parody of HnI because both have the same maintheme,boxing, but while HnI concentrates on realisim, RnK1 likes to mix effects from series like DBZ to it. One good example would be the main character's ultra punch called the "Boomerang Hook". Everytime when he uses it, he ...
