I mean a lot of shows have it's flaw but this show really nails the early 2000's feeling of anime like Samurai Champloo. People expect a deeper story for a boxing anime but it's so enjoyable and nostalgic. It just sucks that this show is already forgotten.

It will probably be remembered whenever Ashita no Joe and its adaptations are brought up.

It looks to me that most sports anime don't do well these days. The genre just isn't that popular the last years. Maybe we see a change in a couple of years. But by that time, Megalo Box may very well be a hidden gem.

I mean, this is more or less going to have the same fate a lot of other seasonals that are generally considered good have had. Respected but kind of forgotten, maybe on the verge of becoming a recognized classic at some point but turning into a cult favorite instead. This is only more blatant in this case because there was a lot of hype around it that ended up toned down while the show was airing and specially in its last episodes.

It stood out to me. The show had style, and I had fun with that, so I will not forget.

This anime will be remembered as wasted potential.

Well this pretty much happens with like 90% of all seasonals, which are forgotten the moment the season ends and the next one starts. This has become the anime cycle of the past decade because viewership switched from anime watchers to anime "consumers". It wouldn't be anything new or special.

Current seasonals are pretty much all being forgotten, unless they have long running, and popular source material, and sequels comming up.
Go read the One Punch Man manga please, this awful adaptation by JC Staff is a disgrace.

Honestly, I blame the final episode for that. This is would definitely would be one of my favorite shows of the year, but that final episode made me feel it was just a good ride. But it's still at my 10th position right now

The trouble is it's not 1999 anymore. Now we're getting 50 new simulcasts every 3 months and even a masterpiece like Megalo Box is getting lost in the shuffle.

I think more so the issue Ashita no Joe is just that good, the fact the manga been around more than 50 years now and still considered a classic. What Megalo box does right, Joe does it better characters, art design .... You could say animation however original show especially 2 had some gorgeous animations and one of the best anime productions of all time i mean Osamu Dezaki is considered a legend in the anime industry. Then u got the creator of Gundam .... I mean Megalo Box had a first time director he still never when comes to it, however as a animator the guy brilliant he helped with Key animation for Redline and Fujiko Mine series last episode.

People were fascinated with this show when it aired. the ride was too short though. Would be a classic if it had a longer run-time to let it sink in.

This is not true tho. There are hidden gems everywhere where times forgot about them.
