Anime Information

Anime Description

Ippo Makunouchi's gentle spirit and lack of confidence make him an easy target for the bullies at his high school who regularly beat him up. Then, he's rescued from a beating by Takamura, a larger-than-life professional boxer who inspires Ippo to learn the art of boxing.

After passing one of Takamura's outrageous tests, Ippo attempts to join the Kamogawa Boxing Club, but Chief Kamogawa refuses to believe Ippo has a fighter's spirit and requires Ippo to spar with Miyata, an extraordinarily talented and skilled boxer. Can Ippo even survive the first round?!

Una cosa che ho trovato affascinante in questa serie è la bellezza dei personaggi che danno vita a dei combattimenti mozzafiato che sono dei veri capolavori di arte animata. Su questo fronte la Madhouse dimostra tutta la sua esperienza confezionando una serie composta da 76 episodi molto curati e stabili sul piano delle animazioni durante i massacranti allenamenti e mach che la compongono. La grande forza che traspare di quest'anime è il grande cuore che permette ai personaggi di andare oltre i propri 'limiti' vincendo.
Finendo dico che questa serie non arriva alla perfezione di 'Ashita no Joe', ma riesce però a creare un prodotto mai banale che farà felici tutti quelli che cercano azione e determinazione di grande qualità.
