Watch Hajime no Ippo (Fighting Spirit)
- 2 Seasons
Ippo Makunouchi is your average high school student in Japan. He goes to school, and when he gets home, helps his mother with their fishing business. What sets him apart, is that he is shy and timid, every bully's dream. While getting beat up by school bullies, Takamura is running by and takes out the bullies with complete ease. Makunouchi is impressed with the style, technique, and the ability to be strong. After a few tests of endurance and stamina, Takamura takes Makunouchi to the Kamagawa gym, where he meets others like him, and starts to train under the Chief. Makunouchi ends up sparring against Miata, a child prodigy, and establishes that he has talent. In this series, Makunouchi takes on every fight and climbs to new titles and new heights. The burning question he has is "what is strength?" He takes on every fight he gets with the Kamagawa gym with this question. He slowly but surely gets stronger and better and finds more of himself with every fight that he partakes in, eventually taking on the World Title and Rookie of the Year champions.
