Synopsis

Joe Yuki, one of the coolest DJs in Shibuya, has a secret identity as the leader of gangs. Because of his traumatic childhood, he fiercely hates "weaklings" and sees winning as his only option in life. One night, an old man is being taunted by the kid known as "the human punching bag." The old man reminds Joe of his parents and childhood, and he uncontrollably challenges the kid to a fight. A fight in which he's defeated, and his pride is utterly shattered into pieces.

There's better boxing series out there & sadly this may earn itself a bronze.
Supposedly, most of the story ideas are from Ikki Kajiwara (from the author of Ashita No Joe) but feels more like an incomplete script.

The story of Joe Vs Joe is divided between 3 characters being Joe Yuki, Joe Akamine, & Maki who each suffer from personal trauma of family issues, however the problem with the anime is that it doesn't resolve these issues.

While the boxing certainly helps play a part in the story it never becomes great or inspiring like Hajime No Ippo or Ashita No Joe. It certainly read more

In my opinion, it was pretty great. I enjoyed it since it looked an anime I can watch whenever I want to feel calm or find something that I relax and watch.

I can understand why some may not like it much since the storyline may be confusing, or doesn't end it well.

I have different tastes when it comes to anime, so I might like certain things that others would not.

Here, I rate this anime series a 9/10. I am surprised it only had six episodes. I guess if there was more, maybe it would have been better. But, it would have been cancelled if that read more
