So i caught up with this manga in a week, and there are just a few things i want to mention and ask
1) Takamura is awesome and hilarious, kept me cracking all the way through 900+ chapters
2) Volg Zangief is arguably my fav char for whatever reasons
3) Is there a set goal for the manga that the mangaka announced sometime around? Mb getting to 1,5K chapters? Or until Ippo reaches the top of the world? Maybe Takamura gaining every world title? Only time will tell

I think the unofficial goals and end for Ippo is the happenings of these 2 events.

1. Ippo vs Ricardo Martinez.

2. Ippo vs Miyata III. ( It will happen, mark my words. )

Of course, I suspect the Heavyweight Championship match for Takamura would be shoved its way somewhere between those 2 hyped-up events, so create the best 'Final Three Fight."

Apart from Takamura's Heavyweight Championship fight, none of these other matches are matches I want to see. This is probably why I haven't read a full chapter of Ippo since the start of the Miyata-Randy fight.

I'd love to see Volg or Ricardo have a match sometime soon. And Itagaki's fight's are kinda funny too.
Aoki and Kimura piss me off for some reason, although the Look-away arc had the cracking the most in the entire series.

I like Aokimura, but I fear they've gone as far as they'll ever go in this manga. Their time has passed.

You know... this chapter was the greatest in a loooong time, i laughed with the brawl.... it was hilarious... and Kumi won in the end!.

So, there's 2 options:
1. Ippo actually kills the guy...
2. Ippo is in a pinch and he makes his classical comeback.

Think Ippo will beat him badly then get hit by a big counter-blow. Then he will go rage-mode send that guy to the hospital.

i actually think and hope that ippo just outclasses the guy in 10 seconds, with half-killing him. Sending him to the hospital a lá Mashiba style doesn't seem far-fetched either
And that is one hell of a psychopath expression that is!
+ Date Sendo Mashiba bit was awesome^^
Guess i'll take up this manga in a year or 2 and see what happened, as the fights tend to eat up alot of chapters, with basically nothin happenin

That's it. Ippo's officially lost his sanity. Hajime no Ippo is now officially one of the coolest manga that I've ever read (at least for the next few chapters).

Only if it follows through on the promise. I remember Ippo almost being eaten alive by Sawamura after a strong start, so I'm not getting carried away.

Yes but Sawamura didn't reduce himself to skin and bones the day before the fight. He was in good health and had dirty tricks up his sleeve on top of that. This guy's different, because on top of reducing himself to his worst shape possible, he absolutely can't use his right hand (unless he doesn't want to use it again in day to day life either after the fight). While one day is enough to regain some energy, it won't be enough against someone who'se in top shape. What does worry me is the fact Ippo didn't sleep the night before.

I hate this so much.

Every other time it seemed as if Aokimura were given another chance to shine like their arc, they get trolled over.

Especially Kimura.

i want to see ippo demolish this contender who has no skill or is equal to oaki and kimaru but even that would be too much.with ippos new look i could see it but since the guy got so much spotlight i dont think this will be a fast match.

it would be a serious disappointment, that a world single digit ranker couldn't beat some random dude who only has 1 usable arm.....
anything but a first 30 s KO will drive me batshit crazy

I think the same... Ippo isn't cool to beat that guy in a "Takamura's way".

If Morikawa proves me wrong... i will not be sad and i will say that a new Ippo borns.

Nothing against you but I do hope you're wrong on this one. With his new look, I REALLY wanna see Ippo beat this guy to near death before the first round is finished, and the guy set himself up for a pretty huge defeat.

I don't remember when, but someone asked Morikawa about who was -to him- the best fighter, he mentioned Takamura, Martinez, etc... Ippo wasn't there

I think that Morikawa is fine showing ippo as an underdog.

Yes i want to be wrong too, i would pay to see this fight like the fight when Ippo came up with the Dempsey Roll for the first time... the comeback fight against Ponchai.

That was one of my favorite matches. Nothing like a good old-fashioned beatdown, I always say.
