The series is based on a long running manga in Japan. Besides the series itself, there's also an OVA featuring a fight between Kimura and Mashiba, another that features a Takamura-based storyline that is an episode in length, and a full length movie that follows the end of the series into Ippo's next fight.

Absolutely Fantastic Anime from Start to Finish! Guys, you REALLY don't wanna miss this!
Well what can I say? I watch a lot of Japanese anime like Bleach, One Piece, Naruto Shippudden and pretty much everything that involves fighting. Came across this, just recently and couldn't keep my eyes off it. From start to finish, it's just a trip of great training, great fights, great comedy, really great great fun. The characters are just perfect. We have Makunouchi Ippo the main character who is a shy type of lad, but on the ring... The supporting characters are awesome, all of them, Takamura, Miyata, Coach, Aoki, Kimura and all of the opponents fit in very nicely with the main crew. The interaction between Ippo and his opponents is also great! If you are not an anime fan then I assure you after watching this you will be converted. This is really great stuff and mainly for adults. Cartoons are for kids people, but this is way beyond that!!!
