Hajime No Ippo (Knockout in Philippines and Fighting Spirit here in the US)is a must for all sports fans. Heck, I recommend this series to anyone. If you like sports (especially boxing), you will love the authenticity in which the animators present the boxing concepts and realism, not to mention the gradual development of the protagonist, Ippo Makunouchi. In addition,all the other characters are well-developed, so well-developed that you might even cheer for the guy Ippo is fighting. If you just like animé in general, this series has superior animation. You could feel the punches grinding on the boxer's bodies. If you are a newcomer, fear not. This series is one of the funniest animés ever. This is an overall superior animé. If you never watched animé in your life, or just looking for a good series to watch, this is it.
At first, i didn't like ANIME at all, i thought it's just for child's,
but when i saw 3 first episodes of this "hajime no ippo" i knew this is
the right ANIME *serie?* for me. I just simply loved it, how he trained
himself + the hilarious humor the funny faces and beating up his
opponents, effects were world class and when i for first time saw the
famous "dempsey roll", no kidding: my hair was all electronic & stuff,
we talked about this on school, with friends & stuff, if you like
boxing: you will love this one! it's the best Anime i've ever seen, no
kidding, beating up enemies + humor = PERFECT
10 out of 10 !
Fighting Spirit is better than the Dragon Balls Z or most other famous
and popular TV anime shows about fights because it is more matured and
realistic in its drawing style, plot, characterization, and animation
Animes like the Dragon Balls and most Hayao Miyazaki works are intended for little kids, at least in Japan, but the Flighting Spirit was late night show, intended for older teens and adults.
It should also appeal to the female audience who get turned off by silly fantasy girls with gross body shapes or stupid voices in typical anime.
I don't care about most anime shows, but I love this series. Try it and judge for yourself!
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!!!
