Want some anime fun? Then there is one for you! This is a popular manga from Japanese anime collections having been run for years on screen. And so I bring this one for you. Here is a lot you need to know.
George Morikawa is the author and illustrator of the Japanese boxing manga series Hajime no Ippo. Kodansha has serialized it in Weekly Shonen Magazine from October 1989, and it has been compiled into 131 tankbon volumes as of June 2021.
It tells the narrative of Makunouchi Ippo, a high school student who starts a boxing career and eventually wins numerous titles and defeats a variety of opponents.
From October 2000 until March 2002, a 76-episode anime adaptation created by Madhouse was broadcast on Nippon TV. In 2003, a television film and an original video animation (OVA) were released.
From January to June 2009, a second series named Hajime no Ippo: New Challenger aired. From October 2013 to March 2014, a third series, Hajime no Ippo: Rising, aired.
Ippo Makunouchi was a timid high school student who couldn’t make friends since he was usually assisting his mother manage their family angling charter business. Because he stayed to himself, a gang of bullies led by Umezawa began to pick on him.
Once those thugs gave him a brutal thrashing one day, a middleweight professional boxer strolling by intervened and took the wounded Ippo to the Kamogawa Gym, operated by former boxer Genji Kamogawa, to be treated.
Mamoru Takamura, the boxer who saved Ippo, sought to console him up by letting him express his anger on a sandbag after he arose to the sounds of boxers practicing. They saw Ippo’s boxing skills for the first time at that point. After that encounter, Ippo reflected on the circumstances and decided that he wanted to pursue a career as a professional boxer.
The plot is mainly focused on character development—even during the bouts, we learn something about both combatants. Ippo has a tendency of bumping into his opponents before bouts, which allows him to understand more about them and even sympathize with them.
Ippo is a very shy and modest person who never believes he is strong enough. Instead, he gains bravery by witnessing his opponent’s power and recognizing that he is capable of dealing with it.
The major appeal in the early portion of the series is Ippo and his friendly rivalry with Miyata. This subsequently shifts Ippo’s path to the Japanese Featherweight Championship and, eventually, the global championship.
The spectator is given glimpses of the other characters’ pasts, motives, connections with others, and present boxing difficulties along the way. The story is rounded out by a colorful cast of supporting characters and opponents, as well as side stories about their journeys in the boxing world.

Hajime no Ippo, a manga by George Morikawa, has been running for 30 years. He started it in 1989, and it’s still going strong now. In conjunction with the manga’s 30th-anniversary festivities, Morikawa appeared on an Abema TV show last March 5.
There has been no statement regarding the continuation of Hajime No Ippo Season 4. However, we are confident that the season will end soon. Because of the series’ erratic release schedule, predicting the release date is impossible. But don’t despair, we may still expect to see it on the air by 2021 or 2022.
Hajime no Ippo (Fighting Spirit) is a wonderful Shounen, Sports, Comedy, and Action anime made by one of the best studios in history (Madhouse). Even if it does not tell the full tale, the story it does tell is absolutely remarkable in all its manliness.
While it may not have lived up to my expectations given its long track record, it is a nice read, and even non-sports enthusiasts will likely appreciate the characters and their difficulties. Hajime no Ippo is an excellent manga.
The chronological sequence of Hajime no Ippo is the preferred order. Because there are practically no fillers in the anime, even the Specials and OVA are necessary. We recommend that you do not skip anything for the greatest experience.
You can stream it on Crunchyroll, Gogoanime, and anime-planet. Make your choice wherever you want to see this manga Japanese series.
