Here comes the punch drunk syndrome. Joe might really be on his way to meet the same fate as Joe Yabuki this time. I think that would destroy the narrative though. I know Liu told Joe he was the type of man who lives and dies on the ring, but the arc with Chief seemed to have taught him what was truly important. If the current Joe were to be told boxing further could kill him, I think he'd give up. He doesn't live entirely for boxing like Yabuki did, nor does he share the same demons.

Come on don’t give more drama with this, nanbu and chief already paid the price so don’t add joe with this.

Anyway he was pretty cold against sacchio but it was the only way to get him, and sacchio didn’t need the “I’m going to die soon” card, he already forgave him.

To be fair, Joe was effectively world champ, and Sacchio is about 16 and weighs like 130 pounds. There's a reason featherweights don't fight heavyweights. He's no prodigy but it might be a little harsh to say he has no talent for it.

That's what Aragaki said. I think he knows what he's talking about.

Those weren't his exact words though, were they? I don't remember him saying that.

Hopefully Joe is ok. I'm glad to see Sachio came back to terms and even the corrupt businessman drank to pay tribute to Nanbu.

I remember him saying he agreed to train Sachio because he insisted but he quickly realized he had no talent for boxing.

Despite what the ending seems to imply, I'm sure Joe will make it to the end. I'm not sure what would gained by killing him off in the finale.

The scene where Joe talked to everyone when they reopened the gym was fantastic. I'm not exactly sure why he even accepted the fight (I know Mac reminds him of Chief, but that doesn't seem like a good enough reason) but at least he's going into that fight with the proper mindset unlike Joe Yabuki.

On the other hand, the whole thing with the evil CEO is pretty terrible.

So Joe telling everyone what he did on the road for years must of been hard to sort all of it out in his head

With the way he running that business it looks like it will be sued into oblivion

Joe opening up to everyone at the gym and wanting to get their opinion on his match really did make me happy to see how far he's come. I'm even okay with him using a gear for a the match considering the reason and symbolism for it

It's a gear designed for defense to boot, which matches his desire to come back alive.

I think the power move would be not having the match, but alas.

Will someone punch Sakuma already? I hope to see him hitting rock bottom in the final episode.

The episode was almost entirely focused on Mac, and it was a very good one. He's a very sympathetic character.

Yeah, I did really like the focus on Mac's backstory and how meeting up with his former police partner helped him get himself together.
While the show is very much couched in tragedy, I really want Joe and Mac to both come out of their fight OK and get on with their lives with their friends and families.

I also very very much want that techbro dude to get what's coming to him.

Well it seems that Mac feels better after a few days of binge drinking should of punch Sakuma it would of been faster

This is the kind of match that even if joe lost, it feels like he was the winner, he put mac over, he went out like a champ smiling and happy with what he did.

Now give me a movie for his match against liu.
