The poster looks really cool. Unfortunately, the staff does not look that cool.

Interesting, I am looking more forward to this since this will provide us new stories they can tell. I am calling it right now JD is one of the kids that were following Joe around. I also wonder if other characters will show up from Jos like, I want to see Danpei, Yoko, Nishi, Noriko, Sachi, Wolf, to show up somepoint in the series. Overall I am really hype and I can't wait until it comes out, please let be good.

Ah interesting, I was wondering if they were ever gonna remake Ashita no Joe but the original anime is widely held up as a classic in Japan so I don't think anyone would dare touch it, this seems to be the closest you can get to doing that. It's kind of a remake but also kind of a sequel by the sound of things, in fact it sounds like their answer to Creed in the Rocky franchise. Can't wait to see if any characters from the old series show up.

I've seen the first series of AnJ so I should definitely watch the second one before this comes out.

I really dont want this. Not just being a purist but ANJ was perfect the way it was and the classic chalky art style was befitting for its gritty feel and atmosphere. Ippo is more upbeat, happy, and stylized.

Anime wise pretty much nothing comes close imo :3
