should i even start reading this

At some point this manga could pump me up to start thinking about doing some sport (not boxing though ) and I liked the art to the point of drawing stylized fanarts and saving some parts on my hard drive just to get back to it, for the sake of adoring some good piece of manga art.

But then, after few hunred of chapters it lost all of it. I quit after around chapter 900 quite a long time ago...well I'm surprised it didn't go futher in numbers? ah it seems batoto is not up to date with latest chapters?

Cover 113!!



Cover 112!! o.O




Morikawa just used one of his colour pages for the volume cover :P but it still looks great! 

lol. this one is epic in terms of supermassive chapter numbers. Naruto ended on 700th, bleach, onepiece, fairy tail are not too different in numbers, even the legendary super saiyan and doraemon can't match ippo in terms of chapters.


and seriously, hajime no ippo is trapped on a boring cycle. when i thought it would finally end, Morikawa sensei prolonged it instead. sadly, not in a package of nice sweet surprise. it's all the same: preparation > win > another character's bout > preparation > fight > lose > grieving fillers > another char's bout > preparation > fight > win > another char's bout > preparation > whatever




but i'll follow it anyway. in search of the magnificent hope of miraculous plot twist and ending

Cover 112!! o.O



1111 chapters... nope... I mean, I wouldnt have read one piece in the first place if I knew it was that long beforehand... it has became painful to read at times now.

Why are so many chapters missing?!

This needs to end....

Nobody said

This needs to end....

Not really, it doesn't.

This needs to end....
