    im not sure about the context surrounding ippo's weakness. at first i wanted to brush it off, but comments made by takamaru, his mother and mashiba, coupled with the loss to sendo, has made that impossible. By ippo's own admission he has never known what it means to be strong and now other people are starting to realize what he has always known. Which is actually good news, because for the first time ever he might be able to take a step toward his goal of being strong. His support system, childhood, and natural talents have allowed him to be successful without becoming stronger as a man. His mother doesnt notice any changes in him, because he has always been a strong and determined boy. She knows he isnt a man yet, and so does kumi, and mashiba, and takamaru, and the old man. Sendo, while not as talented as ippo, has the will of a champion, which is why he is stronger right now. His whole deal was being physically stronger than everyone one he fought, despite being physically weak in the big picture, losing to ippo he realized he had to train harder and become physically stronger. Mentally he has always been like takamaru, in that he believes he's the best and is always ready to fight to the end. Physically ippo has always been strong, and is constantly getting stronger, but mentally he is nothing like takamaru.

    Bunch of new chapters are out.

    Takamura is a childish douchebag.

    A lot of us will be rooting for Imai in a while.

    And huzzah! Ricardo Martinez actually kinda remembers Ippo.

    hey, he did say he should've warned him about ippo. that's high praise from someone of ricardo's status.

    and seriously, takamura. leave ippo's sword alone.

    Takamura jumped off a frickin bridge to tell a dick joke. lol.


    Kinda surprised Ricardo was impressed with Ippo. I recall him having absolutely no impression of Ippo because Ippo was never able to do more than walk up and take punches during their sparring match.

    In the latest chapters we get to know Alfredo Gonzales a little better.

    I like this dude. He's got his priorities straight.

    I also appreciated the small insight into Ricardo Martinez.

    There's a comparison going on, deliberately I'm pretty sure, between how Ippo deals with people who worry about what happens to him in the ring and how Gonzales deals with those same issues.

    Alfredo throws down the gauntlet pretty hard.

    I get the feeling that we've got a heavy match ahead of us.

    For a second I thought ippo might crush fredo but now this seems real tough. I doubt ippo will lose because he's small or weaker than before. But I am worried about the story of this fight, the same thought has been shoved down our throats and there hasn't been any real explanation. That explanation will likely come from takamura at sometime while hes sitting in the crowd. Probably while ippo is getting beat to hell he will say some nonsense about ippo not fighting to win. Then probably at the same time coach will internally say something in accordance with takamuras thought. Right on time ippo will transcend his mental block and start to land some heavy body blows like he trained with coach and then show us the secret improvements he put on the dempsey roll. And there's going to be a bunch of flashbacks, all of ippo's will be reused animations and surprisingly so will White Sauce and Noodle's.

    The dialogue between Sendo and Mashiba was what made this chapter for me.
