Re: Hajime no Ippo 1027
Thank God I'm not the only person who wants Itagaki to lose. I don't hate the kid, though. I just think he needs a reality check, but I also want to see just how dark his character is going to become.
I'd like to see another Takamura match, but I'm really invested in Ippo's rise to world champion and his inevitable match with Miyata. We all know Takamura's gonna win the titles because the author has said that he's, pound-for-pound, the strongest character in the manga. So his fights are more for "fuck yeah, Japanese boxers!" than Ippo's fights, which are about growing before, during, and after a match through hard work and dedication. I like those fights more than Takamura's cake walks.
