Synopsis

Megalo Box is an advanced form of boxing where competitors wear metal frames called Gear. When the first ever Megalonia tournament took place, "Gearless" Joe became its champion and known to all as a legendary fighter. However, soon after, he lost an exhibition match against the second champion and vanished from the public eye.

Seven years later, Joe now goes by "Nomad" and keeps a low profile, occasionally fighting in a few underground matches to get by. He is haunted by hallucinations and relies on a set of painkillers to numb his mind.

During a match, Joe wins against an opponent, Chief, who purposefully loses for some extra cash from gamblers. Subsequently, Joe discovers that Chief is from a community of immigrants called the Casa. Chief is gradually trying to make enough money to purchase the land where they live illegally. At first, Joe hesitates to get involved, but eventually decides to lend the Casa a helping hand.

"As the wind whirled by, a Hummingbird appeared before the Nomad as they made their way through the wasteland.

Hummingbird: Will you listen to my song, Nomad? I'm in a hurry, ask someone else.

But the Hummingbird just won't give up and pursued the Nomad.

Hummingbird: Please, I must sing my song.
Nomad: You're rather selfish. Sorry, but I' m just not in the mood. I'm on a journey to die.
Hummingbird: But that's ridiculous. Who goes on a journey to die?
Nomad: It's the truth. Why would I bother lying before I die?

Mixed Feelings
Desperately tries to rid itself of the trappings of the Shounen genre but ultimately it cant.

The ideas on display here are brilliant and could have made a really fresh/exciting anime. Very rarely do we see shounen protagonists after their ultimate victory they often become essentially gods once its done. But here he falls back down to earth struggling with real issues like poverty, racism, drug addiction, even hate crimes are touched upon. But all of this is thrown away as the series progresses like an immense gravitational force is pulling it back to the its origins of shounen.

There's just so many dropped ideas. So spoilers. ...

Watching Megalo Box 2 has made me want to rewatch the first season, but not on a good way. It's been over 2 years since I watched season one, and I gave it an 8. For a 13 ep season it was nicely paced, great story, thoroughly engaging and vary enjoyable. After watching season 2 however, I'm starting to question my initial thoughts. It's not great.

I've never watched an anime that I can say was rushed and really slow at the same time. Quite and achievement to be honest. There are still 13 episodes but 3 story arcs and each one of them ...
