Hajime no Ippo by Morikawa Jyoji
Let me start this section off right.
I cant believe one of the greatest manga ever has no topic at all about it. Lemme break it down for everyone right quick:
The manga is about a teenager (at first) named Makunouchi Ippo. He is the typical kid who is bullied and one day is saved by a mysterous guy who happened to be running by (alot of coincidences happen okay). The kid finds out that that was Takamura Mamoru who is the next great boxer out of japan and all of a sudden Ippo wants to pick up boxing and the rest is history. It is 76 volumes and counting. It has some of the best fights in manga. Once you get to Takamura vs. Hawk in this series, you have read the best fight in all of manga, arguably
I cannot recommend this series any higher. It has comedy, action, suspense, great pacing, great characters and more. This is definitely a must read for sports and non-sports fans alike.
You can go to dynamiteglove.com to get more info on where to get it and the series as a whole (there is a torrent with volumes 1-76 (i believe) that Puar (the head of the Ignition-one project) Started
