    LOVE IT! great series, I have the manga series up to Vol. 40.... haven't started reading it though, but I will. I like Ippo's fights, you get glued in real fast, and you can't stop watching!

    so T.As verdict.... Awesome!

    I really love it. My only qualm is that everything that happens is really interesting while it happens, but not really very memorable to me. I never remember anything that happens in the fights after I'm done reading them, and half the characters who return after several books leave me thinking "Wait....who was he again?".

    Still, it makes for a good read.

    I'm a big fan as well, of both the anime and manga. Probably my favourite sports series along with Ashita no Joe and Slam Dunk. Turned me into a genuine boxing fan! Like Captain Panda brought up, most the opponents or minor characters aren't that memorable besides perhaps 3 or so, and only because they are recurring. But the main characters are all very good, and it's a pretty emotional series whether it's being hilarious or incredibly sad at points.

    Probably the longest series I've ever read too... up to 70 volumes.

    Takamura is my favorite manga character ever.

    It's one of my five favorite series (there isn't really order). I've read volumes 1 - 51, though I've missed 38 - 40. What turned Geromichi into an old man?

    The only thing I don't like much are Ippo's fights. He'll totally get his ass kicked, and then turn it around with 2 or 3 punches every fight.

    SnooypCool used to have this project, and I wanted to get around to reading it sometime, but I think they stopped (at least the site is gone).

    I could find a link to the first 41 volumes, if you'd like. But I dunno if there's still a torrent for the rest of the translated manga.

    Nah, maybe later, I'm too busy with a bunch of other stuff to bother right now.

    I like Hajime no Ippo also. I've seen all of the anime, but only read parts of the manga. I have about 40 actual volumes that I bought (Japanese only though). I eventually plan on downloading the translated versions (if there were text translations somewhere it would be better, since I already own quite a bit of the series, and I wouldn't want to wait so long to download ones I already bought).

    My favorites are Mashiba, Vorg, and Kimura by the way.

    Agreed. Takamura Mamoru rocks. He's an undeniable force of nature. He's hilarious. I remember the bathroom brawl he had with my favorite character in HnI, Sendo Takeshi. :lol:

    True, that about Ippo's fights. But I feel that given the predictability aspect of a series like this one - I mean, it is called Hajime no Ippo - he still manages to pull it all off without his viewers/readers going, "yeah, yeah, whatever..." The challenges are well written, and so are the characters, so you kinda can't help but cheer for Ippo. That said, my heart still belongs to Osaka. Go, Sendo Takeshi!

    Speaking of Ippo's fights and Sendo, I used to love him before he first fought Ippo. The bell rung, and Sendo kept swinging. Of course, he was unconscious, but I was like "stop fighting, asshole!" I haven't really liked him since.

    I started reading it. Don't know why I stopped.

    EDIT: I think it's that the art didn't really appeal to me.

    Hmmm i didnt see this topic

    yes, i love hajime no ippo and since there arnet many places to discuss it on the internet, i suggest going to my forum (look at my sig), there it has everything about ippo

    there should be a torrent up for volume 72 there within a few days or so i hope


    anyways, hni is my favorite series and op is my 2nd

    takamura is my favorite character hands down, he is just so damn funny (perfect example would be having the whole country of japan cheering for him during his fight with hawk and then after winning everyone starts throwing trash at him cuz of his comments, only takamura could turn 50,000 thousand fans of his into enemies in an instant)

    now i feel its my duty to respond to certain topics here

    anyways

    I never remember anything that happens in the fights after I'm done reading them, and half the characters who return after several books leave me thinking "Wait....who was he again?".

    Still, it makes for a good read.
    You must have a really short attention span then :rolleyes:

    mine too

    and geromichi looks like that because he lost so much weight and shaved his hair/eyebrows (he was a welter weight when he was fat and then turned into a featherweight to fight ippo, welter is like 147 pounds and feather is like 125)

    and the reason he can turn fights around that fast is cuz he super strong punches, his fights would be totally boring if he had miyatas speed with his power cuz then he could end the fight in the first 10 seconds ala tyson :P

    thats 100% correct ;)

    except sawamura is 100X cooler than sendo :P

    well they had to give him SOME character man, lol you will like sawamura more than sendo though once you see him fight ippo ;)

    sawamura would ko sendo within 1 round

    Sawamura is that much better than Sendo? Whoa. Going by Ippo&#39;s fights, they all seem even. Can&#39;t wait for vol. 52&#33;

    i have yet to confirm that for myself. quite a few of my friends say similar things about sawamura. though you know, from what i&#39;ve seen i&#39;ll have to say they did seem pretty even so far. but again, i don&#39;t think i&#39;ve read enough to agree or disagree. i really need to catch up on reading the manga.

    however, regardless of the turn out, i still love Sendo. i think my fangirlism has forever impressed upon me, a bias. :lol: ah well, i remain a fan of Naniwa no Rocky.

    sawamura has sendos power+miyatas countering abilites+a jab that comes out like hayamis shotgun called the "bullet jabs"

    he also is mentally crazy and unstable plus he cheats during his matches, he has 2 losses both coming by dq, the one they showed showed his opponent accidentally elbowing sawamura and then sawamura countered him and then while he was falling down to the canvas sawamura grabbed him to stop him from falling and then elbowed him in the face

    they also show him fighting shimabakuro (the super buff super short guy ippo fought) and he easily dominated him like he was nothing, also before the fight mashiba and sawamura run into eachother and sawamura slaps kumi for touching his motorcycle and then mashiba gets pissed at trys to flicker jab sawamura and sawamura dodges them like they were nothing (they didnt fight cuz ippo interjected and stopped it)

    also during his fight with ippo he cheats numerous times, like tripping ippo while he is going for the dempsey roll and then punching him while he is on the ground

    due to his fighting style he would calmly dominate sendo with counters and then do something to piss him off and make sendo rush in with big swings and then he would get countered and knocked out, sendo is easy to piss off so he would easily fall prey to sawamuras mind games

    ippo BARELY beats sawamura, i personally think its the best fight in the series (even better than date vs martinez and hawk vs takamura), everything from the buildup to the actual fight is really good

    also like i said, volume 72 is out now and should have a torrent within a few days, and thats gonna have sawamura vs mashiba wich is gonna be an awesome fight, if you look at it logically there is no way mashiba can beat him but i think somehow mashiba will win.....

    besides both sawamura and mashiba are crazy as hell so thats just a great matchup from that....

    i cant wait for 72&#33; B)

    i have yet to confirm that for myself. quite a few of my friends say similar things about sawamura. though you know, from what i&#39;ve seen i&#39;ll have to say they did seem pretty even so far. but again, i don&#39;t think i&#39;ve read enough to agree or disagree. i really need to catch up on reading the manga.

    however, regardless of the turn out, i still love Sendo. i think my fangirlism has forever impressed upon me, a bias. laugh.gif ah well, i remain a fan of Naniwa no Rocky.
    lol the only thing even about sawamura and sendo is power, everthing else goes to sawamura...

    hey since you are a sendo fangirl you should goto my forum, there is a mashiba fangirl there so you two can do hot fangirl stuff together.....or something :P

    wha?&#33; a MASHIBA fangirl? now i&#39;ve seen everything.

    wow...it IS a big world...

    MUST DO MORE MANGA READING&#33;

    he cheats, he cheats&#33; wow. a guy really willing to do anything...nah, i am uncomfortable with the word "cheating". let&#39;s just say his methodology is a little less than clean cut. but i guess that&#39;s just a matter of semantics. whatever he does, he does it to win. so, kudos to him. sawamura...

    ah, i was knocked out the first time i ever heard Sendo Takeshi talking about Rocky Marciano, who is also my personal favorite Heavyweight Champion. I just loved it. And his fights with Ippo will always be burned into my memory. I was on the edge of my seat, even if I knew that Ippo would eventually win - hey, they didn&#39;t call it Hajime no Ippo for nothing, right? The title itself is the biggest spoiler of all. We know who the author is building up. But the character design is superb, and I just thought that out of all the characters I did encounter in the manga and the anime, Sendo was just the one that stood out for me the most.

    will check out the forum, for sure. and we&#39;ll see what we can do about the erm, "hot fangirl stuff"... :P
