Re: Hajime no Ippo 1027
Takamura has always been the best character in this manga. That fight with the bear in the mountains remains the most "BOSS" event in this manga. I suppose that drunken fight in the bar, where he beat up Date and 5 other guys, was pretty hilarious as well. One of the reasons I hated that they even introduced Itagaki's character was that we get countless chapters of his retarded fights, instead of seeing more of Takamura.
I hope after this arc is over with, that the story shifts back towards his goal of winning his championships in 6 different weight classes. I think he's already got 3 of them out of the way (not sure). With him being in the same age group as those other 2 guys at the gym, who have both considered retirement in the past, I can't help but feel that Takamura's time as a boxer in his prime is running out. So the story really needs to shift back towards him.
