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?

But the hummingbird refused to give up.

Hummingbird: Then how about this? If I can make you lie, listen read more

Anime that mixes science fiction and sports drama together aren't very common these days. When you throw characters into a boxing ring, it becomes more of a sensation because you konw, someone is going to get hurt. No, I don't just mean getting hurt in the fight. I mean, someone is going to risk their pride on the line in front of the world. Megalo Box returns for a surprising sequel in Spring 2021.

Indeed, Megalo Box getting a second season almost feels like a miracle. Joe has been established as a character with integrity but also one we came to understand and relate to. From read more

A happily ever after doesn’t exist.

Nomad takes the cheerful conclusion of the first season and throws it down the gutter. Gearless Joe. A man who had reached his peak early in life, is left stumbling into a downward spiral. What’s left after a few years is a lone man with nothing. Wandering on without a destination. Getting money the only way he knows how. A stray dog now more than ever before.

A continuation of a story whose ending, albeit not perfect, felt complete, could very well have been just a way to milk a pre-existing series dry. But I was glad to see read more

Slight spoilers ahead.

I’m on the record saying I didn’t think Megalo Box needed a sequel and that I don’t think a sequel could even do much. Boy, was I wrong, and i’ve never been happier to be wrong in my entire life. This season of Megalo box is a masterpiece. It takes everything good about season 1: setting, animation, aesthetic, and soundtrack, makes them better, then just makes everything else better while its at it. It improves on the established characters, introduces interesting new ones, and has a more engaging story, all while being thematically brilliant.

This season improves upon every character, showing the effects of read more
