It was a pretty funny one, almost felt like either they forgot to add in Takamuras starting story after they realized it at the Aoki/Kimura starting story, or they just wanted this to be the last episode, end it with the start of Kamogawa Gym (They basically went bankrupt and were close to closing it down or so they said).
Anyway it was pretty enjoyable, te whole series was. I just started watching it cause I heard alot and before I knew it I saw the second season. Didn't want to be left behind! :D
They say there's no such place... as Paradise. Even if you search it to the ends of the Earth, there's nothing there. No matter how far you walk, it's always the same road. It just goes on and on. But, in spite of that... Why am I so driven to find it? A voice calls to me... It says, "Search for Paradise."
In my opinion, this episode just felt out of place. Ippo had already won the match against Sendo and became champion. Then to end the anime with the history of how Takamura joined Kamogawa gym.. man, weird.

I REALLY don't get why people are bitching about episode 76. Throughout the whole series we got a comic relief episode after a serious fight, and after the best fight in the series we get the best comic episode, how fitting. It's Hajime no Ippo's style, jeez, I'd think you'd get used to it after so many episodes.
Well I didn't watch this when it was being aired.. but this last episode was pretty weird to end their first season haha Nonetheless, it was still satisfying to get to know Takamura's background story.. His debut match is more impressive then Ippos' :-D
Loved the hilarious ending! :-)))) best way to end the show; with laughs!

Fantastic episode! Really liked this episode, especially because Takamura is one of my favourite characters! Awesome match, 25 seconds KO! LOL @ the end, "Umm, there's a strange noise coming from inside", haha Takamura is just epic!
Very enjoyable episode, I really like to see my boy Takamura in action and know more about his past and how he started. He's definitely the best and most powerful boxer we have seen up to date (Champion Date wouldn't stand a chance against him, right? I don't really know if in boxing the weighing's difference makes a huge unbalance btwn fighters) but we don't get to see him fighting much because Ippo's got all the highlights.
One of the best characters I've ever seen, laughs are granted whenever he's in.
And I loled at the end of the ep, never fails to amuse me but he didn't set 'that' in in time hahaha
Coach Kamogawa is a really good character too.
