    You mean another challenger series ? This is the third anime ?


    The manga is my fav manga of the last few years.

    I need to watch the challenger animas. I have only watched the old anime.

    HnI is just awesome.

    Morikawa's artwork is crisp, incredibly kinetic and has just the right amount of detail, the gags are ridiculous, the characters are fun and holy crap he's writing about boxing for 20 years straight and it still hasn't gotten boring???

    it's a great manga but somehow i feel like its best days are behind it. none of the recent fights have really entertained me at all.

    He needs to move the story already.

    I mean, Takamura hasn't gone after a new title since Volume 61, and he's only one-third of the way towards his final objective. Meanwhile, Ippo has been sitting on that Japanese title for a whopping SIXTY-THREE volumes!

    Morikawa Jouji is indeed a master of dragging it out, and I meant that as a complaint and a compliment.

    Something big really does need to happen to move things along a bit.

    And I want to catch up with a bunch of the side characters as well.

    That said, it's still a good manga.

    There is a rumor about a new Challenger series, third anime series.

    I thought you talked about that one.

    Why not read the manga ? The anime is great adaptation but manga is many volumes ahead.

    I want to read the manga...exactly. Could you tell me the issue in which THE FIGHTING(anime) ends. I want to start with the issues which begin after
    Sendo's second loss with Ippo. After Episode 76...

    New chapter is out.

    If I wasn't rooting for Saeki before I would be rooting for him now. But since I was rooting for him before I am now super-rooting for him.

    I'll second that, I really want Saeki to win this fight. I have to be honest, though, I just sorta jumped in at the beginning of the fight, knowing absolutely nothing about these two-- and I found myself rooting for him anyways. (he reminds me of Piccolo, for some reason).

    now I want to go back and get caught up with the story, lol!

    Sendo loses to Ippo for a second time at chapter.. lets see..266. The manga currently has more than 900 chapters so that's a lot of material to go through. Happy reading.

    I don't know if it's because Itagaki's being smug or Saeki's got a compelling reason to fight, but I'm rooting for Saeki all the way.
