    Joe won! But Nanbu lost?
    Those finicky deals with the devil get you every time.

    Good episode.

    Joe really won a bang.Though i wonder why that guy can't let Nambu fight anymore.

    Using my advanced observation Haki, I believe the gangster guy will try to get Joe to throw the fight against Burrows as he's been paid off by a few higher ups.

    That Yuri look :gar.

    Nanbu said Joe is extremely talented but he really doesn't feel like one to me. Nice conclusion for Mikio.

    Not fond of the last scene but I was half-expecting something like this.

    Really great episode.Soory i was late to see this episode.

    Storm was partly correct.Fujimaki really wanted Joe to throw the match but who would have guessed it was set up from the beginning.


    Sachio's father was the one who created the blueprint of Yuri's gear.That's one important piece of information.

    Yuri and Joe really respects each other.Great warriors respecting others.Next episode will be great.

    Yuri never disappoints. That was a great match, no drama, cheating or anything.

    I hate how they always make Nanbu look like human garbage, it's almost as if everything that happened when they became a team was a lie.. The drama is really annoying. The latter half was better.

    I fully disagree on that last point, the drama tests their bonds and it adds an extra layer of thrill and emotion to the upcoming match, it also stays true to each of their characters, I'm glad that this has come around full circle, seems like the mob are actually clever and plan to make good on their investment.

    The biggest problem I have with the drama to me is that Nanbu keeps screwing up. It's always his fault.

    How did he screw up in this instance? He literally had no choice, it was either go with the Mobs plan or die.

    He had no choice indeed, but I don't like the way he handled this. I get that he preferred to hide it until the last moment, but his words to Joe in this episode were pretty harsh. As if nothing had changed between them at all.

    There is literally no other way for him to handle it, if he told Joe or Sachio beforehand, Joe wouldn't have made it into the ring, he wouldn't have tried his best to get to the endgame and as a result would have lost against fighters like Aragaki or Mikio.

    I completely understand Nanbu's words, it may be harsh but it is in the nature of his character to go on the defensive, this clash of ideals is only natural considering Nanbu and Joe's characterization.

    Now that was a great episode! :clap Joe really looked skilled in this fight and Nanbu made the good choice. Now what, some drama with the ID card? Shirato will probably help if there is trouble.

    Yuri is too cool :hip.

    Really haunting episode. I kind of knew that Nambu himself will tell Joe to fight for winning.

    Nanbu losing his eye is really painful.Yuri was awesome too.Finally Joe vs Yuri coming.

    What a great episode! Absolutely loved everything in it :clap.

    Just like the first episodes, the last ones are excellent. Hyped for the final battle :gar.

    Yeah indeed a great episode. I love how they are able to portray all emotions and feelings of all characters.

    The final battle next week.Will Joe survive this battle?Have to wait till next week.

    Really great ending to a great series. So Joe finally won.And Yuri got crippled.

    I was fearing that someone I'll doe but thankfully that didn't happen.


    Also new Megalonia tournament. So a possible second season tease.


    Full 10/10 series.

    7 wins and 0 Losses…. Wasn't there a forfeit in there?
    Also, they don't really seem to be living too high on the hog... maybe the winnings were used to pay off their friendly neighborhood mobster?

    So, Joe won, both survived but Yuri lost his legs.

    Since Joe is satisfied he doesn't want to box anymore?

    Average ending. The first episodes and the last ones were excellent but not this one, some episodes in the middle were good, some less good. The OST was great.

    7/10 overall for me.

    Me, not so much.

    I enjoyed the series, but wouldn't expect a second season to be as good. They'd have to create a whole new story as this one is pretty much done.

    I'd give this a 7/10

    Well let's see.

    @Wowzers just saw this in boxing rules

    "The winner is either decided by the judges if the fight goes the distance or by knockout (floored and cannot get up within 10 seconds), technical knockout (boxer unwilling to continue, or is deemed unable to do so) or disqualification."

    So yeah Forfeit is considered a win.
