OOOOHHHHH BABY I'm loving this anime already, that was a damn powerful start, and I'm hyped for his fight in the next. And the atmosphere and art style are damn cool, reminds of Red Line, plus that music is sweet as hell. I look forward to more.

Reckon he will get his ass handed to him but will show some skill which Yuri will appreciate it considering the shithouse gear he is wearing.

First impression the voice acting is fantastic second the animation is top notch for the setting its really similar to Samurai champolo and Love it,third the characters are pretty good, fourth the pace is incredibly good I thought they gonna waste lots of time but they didn't gladly.

I can't ask for more except I wish this would be like 25 episodes or more cause boxing needs time to develop.

I really liked this first episode and I can't wait for the second one.
Something about the art direction reminds me of shows from the early 2000, which is not bad. I really like it to be honest.

Right away I got a Cowboy Bebop vibe from the art. I wish more anime was like this.

From the first second until the last frame, everything from the art, animation, atmosphere, story, and characters, it was all top-notch 90s feel!

It sounds like an excellent 90s throwback without being a mere generic shounen intro + nostalgia bait.

This show's art style and vibe reminds me of Samurai Champloo and Cowboy Bebop which is great!

Omg, I am loving everything about this show! The mood, the art style, the characters (main character is so badass), and especially the soundtrack!!

At this point I can't even tell which among the ones currently airing will be my AOTS

I'm getting the vibes of many of my classic favorite anime. The nostalgia trip is intense!!! But that's not all that there's is to tell about this one, this one is incredibly good what a nice first episode, i was drown to it almost immediately.

Just saw the first episode, guess I'm late to the party. Amazing first imression left by this great opening episode! Calling it now, MC is going to die at the end. I'm guessing Not Dead Yet at the end of the episode is foreshadowing here ... Let's see if I'm right. Hope this show stays this good throughout the season!

Interesting first episode. It feels like i was looking at an old anime lol. Joe is a ok protagonist. Something tell me that he will be defeated in the next episode. 4/5

I’m potentially getting back on the anime bandwagon and it’s because there’s a show like this in existence. I’m not keen on saying 5/5 because you need build-up and payoff to get the rewards, but this was undoubtedly a beautifully executed episode with a great sense of style that’s running counter to current trends, great pacing, great direction. The boxing theme doesn’t even particularly interest me but this one’s gonna be bloody and brutal and full of intense rivalries. I guess the downsides are that it’s not particularly original and I’m not convinced it’ll step back and show a side to the world beyond “brutal” or the characters beyond “tough guys”, but a well told story is a well told story nevertheless. Definitely on board for the next few just to take in the style.

I did not expect that I would pick up a boxing anime, yet here I am. The world of Megalo Box enthralled me.

I love this rough stuff. Junk Dog has got some swag don't he? Is he going to get his ass kicked?

Please, can anybody help me to find music track which plays from 9:00 to 10:49, during Junk Dog first fight scene? Couldn't find a clue about it anywhere

Easily a 5/5 episode for sure.

Who wouldn't like a protagonist named JUNK Dog? People might have a problem with his attitude and think he's a braggart but he sure as hell better than indecisive, weak characters like Hiro from Darling in the Fuck.

The soundtrack and BGM was also pretty catchy and I enjoyed the ED song, "Kakatte Koi yo (かかってこいよ)" by NakamuraEmi. It's probably one of the better Anime ED songs I've heard in a while. None of that annoying, super sweet Anime girl voices singing at a high pitch.

I also don't have a problem with the retro style because it's nostalgic and yet it's refreshing to see in today's vast ocean of generic Anime styles with ridiculous, large moe eyes.

I'll be looking forward to every episode from now on. It's been a while since I last Hajime no Ippo, my last boxing Anime and an even longer time since I saw Ashita no Joe so I'm getting my fill with this series.

Visuals look like they could deteriorate but more than good enough for now.

First thing to note is definitely the old-school art style. It looks great. The soundtrack is pretty good so far too.

Actually the first thing I thought about was how much I liked the main character's voice, and what do you know, it's Yoshimasa Hosoya! This is gonna be good.

I thought our protagonist was going to get his ass beat in the rain, but now he'll get is ass beat in the ring instead LOL. Gotta give him that last line though. "They don't make tombstones for stray dogs." was so cool haha.

Damn, this looks good. A shame there were no big fights this episode, but the following one looks promising.

Pretty nice start of this series I must say, for some reason the quality is a bit too pixelated for my taste yet the art style does remind me quite a lot of Redline and alike.

Quite interesting and intense start in general though, so let's see what this series has to offer!

Did anybody else watching this on Toonami think it looked distinctly 720p? I mean even on the HD version of the channel.

Great setup though, I'm stoked to be watching this now. It feels almost like IGPX with the futuristic sports aspect. I swear this show was born to be on Toonami.

If only he had his name registered as a legal citizen and he wouldn't have had to throw away his dignity as a talented boxer for people who don't care for him. Megalonia might change everything and even get his oomph back.

I get that he has the right to get mad at someone who just happened to be in the middle of the road late at night because you almost crashed into them but he is ilegally driving in that person's property so it's definitely his fault at that time. After rejecting free insurance, Junkdog suddenly going against the president's bet for world champion was super hype but it ended with as a tease but Yuri came back with his gear ready and made the hype even bigger than earlier!
