This is becoming such a tease I want to see the match so much now... Ippo will kill that guy it seams... or he will render him unable to ever fight or stand up on his own again...thats what happen when you unleash the ippo
Another hype chapter. This time in favor off ippo losing or at least getting beat up. But DAMN i cant wait to see how this fight is gonna go.
Oh yeah and i loved the page where ippo is shadow boxing in the smokescreen. He totally has an epic face right there. A combination of determination and silent rage.
hmm...I have a feeling that Itagaki not giving Ippo that advice might have some serious effect on this upcoming fight...I see Ippo winning but something will go "wrong" for him! but like Smit said..another hype chapter, really hope next week we see some blows exchanged...
On a side note: Does anyone else dislike Itagaki?, idk what it is about him but he still doesn't really "fit" to me, his boxing style is decent (can't really stand that "speed god genius" thing he does but w/e) he just seems to me like he was placed in the gym/series to add a fresh (recurring) face...just IMO tho
I dont dislike Itagaki yet but he's getting there. But I think I know the reason why he's doing this. Ippo has been his goal and inspiration since the beginning. Over time he's getting to know ippo and it annoyes him that ippo is the "perfect" sportsman. Ippo never takes things too personal and is an overal nice guy to everyone (even to Mashiba and Sawamura). But now there is a challenger who manages to infuriate Ippo. Making Itagaki curious about what kind of fighter ippo would be if he's angry. Forgetting that he's Ippo friend and what's best for Ippo. That's what I dont like about him right now.
The hype arround this fight means the fight will be over in one round.
I think Ippo will either become a complete new and better fighter and win instantly or he will be hitten by the counter and lose but that wouldn't make much sense at this point of the history.
the mangaka is really milking the pre-fights in this fight... i hope we dont get an underwhelming fight where ippo blows him away and he says "yes i was trying to ignite your hidden potentials"
I hope Itagaki will get jealous again after ippo finished the fight again in faster than his time
would you guys like a long drawn out fight (like against the geezer last time) or a quick fight? i guess the loyalists probably want the long drawn out since there's so much leading into ippo's weakness?
If this turns out to be a brawl, I'm on the fence if I wanna see Ippo drag it out or beat the living crap out of this dude for 10 chapters
woli fight was a bit lame yeah... the old geezer prior to him was OK/ Honestly I want to see Ippo fight some foreigners not native has been/never was who seemed to "evenly match" ippo for most of the fights
933 is out on mangastream.
Incredible pace as always. Seems like Ippo is trying to prevent himself from going bananas, but the sooner he does the better it will be. I can hardly wait for his opponent to get his butt kicked.
The longer this fight is going to take, the more I'm going to love the WOLI fight!
After 900+ chapters Ippo should be at least thinking about the world Stage.
wow a whole chapter about nothing - and here i thought the mangaka for Gantz can milk all his worth on some scenes but this is getting bad and seems to be a long drawn out fight. I would not be surprised next chapter ends with the first punch thrown by somebody.
Its not about milking the tension. It looks like this fight will be mostly mental rather than the heavy physical fights weve seen so far. Ippo is in a dillema because he feels like hurting the guy who talked bad about his coach but he cant because it isnt in his nature to take revenge.
It isnt the author's style but i want to see flashbacks that will lead up Ippo realizing his weakness, that he needs to be ruthless in the ring.
