Megalo Box / Ashita no Joe



Hey Everyone,

Happy New Year hope this new year brings everyone happiness. 

Okay so I wanted to talk about an anime called Megalo Box it's the 50th anniversary of a manga and anime called Ashita no Joe.  Its a sports anime involving boxing with a twist they use gear to enhance one's ability. I wasn't sure if I would like this sports anime but it was actually really good one of my favorite sports anime's.  The world in which they live in only the rich can have citizenship the rest fight to survive. The main protagonist in the story is poor and doesn't have a name but box's underground with his trainer were the throw matches to pay off a debt. Soon though a top notch fighter shows up to challenge and from there the story really takes off.  I feel like if I tell anymore it will spoil. The anime really shows the struggle of wanting to show your worth and fighting for something bigger than one's self. It is a definitely must watch with only 12 or 13 episodes.

 I cant critically review this show, being that its been quite a while since I've watched it, but I didn't complete it. I dropped it with 3 eps to go. It just seemed very lackluster to me. Like it was lacking in several elements. It seemed sort of predictable and not unique.. I suppose, if I were to guess at the moment what my complaints would have been.

I have seen Hajime no Ippo, that is one of my favorite shows still to date. It is also my comparison for this boxing anime. I'm a huge underdog story and shounen anime fan. So having seen a lot of these types of shows, it just letft me wanting more from it. IG.

I do need to watch ashita no joe still. Fans say its better. What do you think?
