Hajime no Ippo (anime)
I have been watching this anime for the last month or so, and so far, it is one of the best that i have seen.
Ippo Makunouchi is a very shy high school student who never had the time to make friends because he was always busy helping his mother with the family charter boat fishing business. Because he kept to himself, a group of bullies lead by Umezawa got into the habit of picking on him. On one particular day these bullies decided to give him a rather serious beating, but a middle-weight professional boxer who was passing by stopped the bullies and took the injured Ippo to the Kamogawa Gym , owned by retired boxer Genji Kamogawa, to treat his wounds. After Ippo awoke to the sounds of boxers training, the boxer who saved him, Mamoru Takamura, tried to cheer Ippo up by letting him vent his frustrations on a sandbag. It was then that they had their first glimpse into Ippo's talent for boxing. After that incident, Ippo started his training and began his path in Japan's professional boxing.
That is a short summary of how it begins. If you like Eyeshield 21, then you will probably like this. The only difference pretty much is that it is boxing of course. So far, the anime has about 70 episodes and a movie, but the manga is running 798 chapters. If there is a good fighting series that you are looking for that is realistic, then this is perfect.
You can watch it at www.veoh.com or http://anime6.org/. I prefer the latter.
