Throughout his childhood, Makunouchi Ippo has always been picked on by his fellow classmates. Long hours helping his mother run their family business, a fishing boat store, has left him without the time to make friends, and so he remains an introverted loner, doomed to be beaten day in and day out. Although he hates being bullied, he hates himself even more for not being able to fight back against his tormentors."What is it like to be strong?" he asks himself as he stares at his clenched fist. "I want to be strong." His encounter with Takamura Mamoru, a professional boxer, leads to the discovery of a dynamite punch that opens up the doorway to a whole new world where that dream can become a reality. At the Kamogawa Gym, Ippo now trains with the aspirations of becoming a professional boxer and discovering what it means to be strong.

    Ippo underestimated how much effort someone might be willing to put into being able to beat the crap out of others.

    Well there will be another 30-40 chapters of Ippo’s struggling about his life, maybe some fights for side characters.
    Probably he will return after someone close to him will get ill or die.

    Spoiler!: 

    Ippo gives up being a second and returns to the ring.  That’s how the manga ends

    Been following this manga for a few years now and I’m sad to see it end. If you’re thinking about starting it, just do it. It’s a fun story that is able to pull off real issues and manga nonsense very well. 10/10 would dedicate years again.

    This manga is garbage.  Ippo never got to the world stage.  Instead, he remains a bum with punch drunk symptoms because the dumb coach never taught him how to dodge properly.

    Boxing is a tough sport and not a kind one at that. Beautiful but cruel.

    Well, at least the fight is done with…

    Although I dunno what that last chapter is about. It’s not like Ippo’s got some kind of temporary illness that’ll disappear, he ran himself into the ground until his body and brain couldn’t take it any more. Is he supposed to find another hobby or something?

    You have no right to tell others how they should think. Opinions are opinions because different people think in different ways and get enjoyment and feel disgust out of different things.  You say we should respect the mangaka and the work he’s put in, but respect is something that is earned, and something that can change on a whim. To people who don’t like the way the story has been going lately, that sense of respect is notably absent because in heir eyes, it hasn’t been earned.

    Please don’t go saying we need to “get a grasp on reality” just because our opinions differ from yours. That makes you a far worse person than the people you yourself are condemning.

      first off. thanks for replying :)
      at no point did I tell people how they should think. I am giving my opinion on there opinion.  i did however tell them they need to get a grasp on reality, but more on that later.
      and you are very correct! different people should and I hope do enjoy different thing, as well as find things that also deject them in a progressive manner.
      now as for the time part of my comment. that was mainly focusing on people who say that its been a waste of there time, and i feel i did a just job getting that point across.
      now as for the respect part of my comment.
      respect in general is something that seems to have a very LAX feel to it from people in general now.
      but I for one believe that it is earned and once its earned it, should take a REAL issue to change that fact. especially when it something that HAS been earned over and over again by that Person.(referring to the 1204 chapters of this amazing manga)for some people to have there respect be able to change on a whim, only goes to show that it was not real respect in the first place. 
      and as for a grasp on reality the manga ka is sick. hes 52! hes been drawing this manga for 28 years, and ippo has taken BEATINGS that entire time.  a boxers career is very short in reality to those of others professions. and they do often become broken.  ippo is a stout man with a lot of determination and I hope that artist can can continue this series to a more satisfying end.  but if its over for ippo… then taking in to account the REALITY of EVERYTHING going on in this. not just MY own selfish desire to see this series continue.  then I for one can see and respect it ending.
      oh and
      P.S. I am completely ok with being seen as worse to be able to get the right point across. 
      after all the sheep think the wolf is truly a demon and not just another hungry animal.

    amazing manga. you have to respect the work that has gone into this. for those saying this was a waste of your time to see him fall. then YOU have no respect for your time and really need to get a grasp on reality.
    if you laughed and felt joy when ippo won and dismay when he lost. then as a manga KA then MORIKAWA Jyoji did and amazing job. 
    the only garbage in this if your understanding respect and appreciation. 
    thank you all the people who work hard translate this . you have done and amazing job.
