Neither mentions Crunchyroll, though, so I suspect those are not the whole story.

Heh, of course they use Orga's voice for an MC who lives in a shithole but have dreams for greatness. Here's hoping this MC has more luck than Orga at the end of the story .

Solid episode, btw. Of course I will follow this. This is like Ashita no Joe mixed with Elysium.

Let's hope it doesn't end up like the Real Steel novel though...or Joe for that matter.


Easy likings for me I love the original Joe and Hajime no Ippo. Feel like this will be a solid series.

That was a good start. Not all the fighters use the same equipment so while Junk Dog will obviously need better equipment, I wonder how much of the story will focus on him improving his fighting style.

Nice episode. It felt like a tribute to Ashita no Joe. The MC feels a bit like Joe, while Shirato being nearly a clone from Yoko. I'm not sure how to feel about using technology combined to boxing considering it might easily kill others in battle. The soundtrack is really good too. Still, the ending song was a bit annoying.

We've only seen underground matches so far. I'm guessing they wear adequate protections in official matches. Still expecting some deaths and crippling, but probably not that much more than in Ashita no Joe.

Even through this is a pretty well worn premise the first episode was really good and oozing with plenty of style. I usually don't watch or care much for sports anime but this seems to have a lot more going for it than that. I'm also interested on the twist that exoskeletons will bring to the table. Helps that cast and protagonist (especially with him being an undocumented immigrant) seem eclectic so far. Probably the first keep of the season for me.

The first episode was so good. Though, I can't help but feel blueballed when Junk Dog and Yuri's fight in the rain got interrupted, and once again when the episode ended .

^Probably a bit of both - Yuri is the champ, and his tech is clearly WAY more advanced just from the look of it.

^Pretty sure it's both that Yuri is very strong and his tech is cutting edge. (Actually, does he even have any flesh and blood in his arms?)

That opening is one of the best I've seen. Song and visuals are both great, and the whole package is just awesome. I'm declaring opening of the year, I don't see anything topping this anytime soon. (Which is not to say the rest of the music is not great, the ending song is awesome as well, and the BGM is must get the moment the soundtrack comes out. As is the opening song. Damn, it's great.)

Megalo Box continues to keep its "anime of the season" title as far as I'm concerned. (It's really sad that it's not LoGH but alas - if only LoGH:DNT had the kind of guts of this show has.)

With all the streaming services, I hope that inspires people to buy a lot of BD/DVDs so it sells well.

Voiced by Olga and cutting a deal with the mafia...on top of that it's an AnJ story...this won't end well for Joe.

You gotta wonder if Yuri is full on cyborg though, that tech seems grafted unto his skin rather than simply wearing it like Joe.
