Makunochi Ippo is an ordinary high school student in Japan. Since he spends most of his time away from school helping his mother run the family business, he doesn't get to enjoy his younger years like most teenagers. Always a target for bullying at school, Ippo's life is one of hardship. One of these after-school bullying sessions turns Ippo's life around for the better, as he is saved by a boxer named Takamura. He decides to follow in Takamura's footsteps and train to become a boxer, giving his life direction and purpose. Ippo's path to perfecting his pugilistic prowess is just beginning.

Note: Won the 15th Kodansha Manga Award for Best Shounen Manga in 1991.

Excellent, le meilleur manga sportif au monde et de loin.
Une histoire, des persos secondaires capables d'être les persos principaux, et une évolution de Ippo toujours plus extraordinaire.

Rien à dire, tout à lire

This is the BEST manga that has even been created. It is a great story about an average person who has gotten picked on throughout his student life and has turned it all around to become a boxer contending for the world title. The ONLY downside to this manga is that it is too long, hence the .1 that i did not give it just for being too long. "Too much of a good thing is a bad thing".

this is as good as it gets, there isn't anything better out there and perhaps there never will be anything out there, that's at least as good as this!
