    Re: Hajime no Ippo

    Ippo was always going to come back but this arc has done a great job of making that a nuanced journey. Ippo's learning to explain the finer details of boxing to someone else, thus giving himself a...

    Re: Hajime no Ippo

    Honestly, this entire arc feels like it's the most character development Ippo has had in years. I can definitely feel like Morikawa is rebuilding Ippo as a stronger person and fighter than ever...

    I think Morikawa's doing a brilliant job of giving Ippo a path back to the form that made him so dangerous in the first place. Being forced to think about how he can make others win will give him the...

    Re: Hajime no Ippo

    Ippo's lacked any drive for so long that Morikawa's trying to make that into the center of Ippo's progression. Working as a second will definitely help Ippo regain his fighting spirit.

    Re: Hajime no Ippo

    I'm pretty sure Morikawa has decided he is going to draw Hajime no Ippo until the end, even if it literally kills him and this arc is meant to represent the same for Ippo. I imagine we'll get a few...

    Boxing was an adventure, if we're to go by the ending text of the previous chapter. On adventures you usually find treasure, right? Takamura is probably asking Ippo if he found what the meaning of...

    I don't think Ippo is necessarily punch drunk, he's just using the thought of such a thing as an explanation for his inner chaos. He's been stuck in a rut of indecisiveness and psychological torment...

    Oh, he'll be back. Morikawa will either repeat Date's storyline by having Ippo come back after being married or have Kumi reject Ippo's proposal. It'll happen.

    I imagine Miyata will be Ippo's first title defense after defeating Martinez. That would give Miyata an excuse to be able to admit he wants to fight him.

    I was not implying that. The 'throne' I was speaking of is less the 'throne of Japanese boxing' and more the 'throne of upcoming boxers'. Before Ippo seemed to be leading the charge to the top. Now...
