This is a continuation thread, the old thread is Here
Even though at the start of the manga characters were using vhs tapes, and now they carry around iphones. lol
Pic or didn't happen.
Aka i'm too lazy to search myself.
HAJIME NO IPPO 1028 Raw : ALL double pages joined.
Well, Manabu had the right idea there, from the looks of it. Just that his body didn't have the power to follow through anymore. That's what a heavy beating to the body does for you. Deserved win for Imai, absolutely deserved. Good to see him back, its been so long.
i know i'm probably wrong because of plot shield but itagaki shouldn't be able to stand up again. damn, what a beating he received there
Didn't think Mori would one-up Vorg vs Mike so quickly, but here it is. Goddamn. Brutal right from the get go, Imai was desperate right from the start and it payed off. And even better, this fight was also quick as hell.
Another telling detail - this ref actually ended the match instead of allowing the usual zombie boxing shenanigans. Ippo's in trouble now
the ref ended it? my understanding was that he stopped imai to send him back to his corner to begin his count on itagaki ?!
damn, you are right, didn't pay enough attention it seems. well, that's it then
thank god, shitagaki had this coming to him for a long time, lets hope he'll lose alittle bit of this cocky attitude.
Wow...never actually expected that to happen. I thought Itagaki would take a beating and then find a way to win at the last moment. All that momentum and confidence he built up for his career is now going to take a serious blow, and I'm interested to see how it impacts him. Imai deserved the victory though, he used the best possible tactics in his situation to win.
Can a mod please edit posts with spoilers not tagged please? shit is fucking annoying man goddamn
The new fighter sees Ippo as a stepping stone? Just like the other copycat did. It's the smae situation and Ippo gonna wreck him. The only notable difference is Ippo having a better ranking than back then (Around the sixth post when he was the #9 if I remember correctly).
Did I think just happen, happen! Yes. I was so worried that Itagaki was going to counter him, then he got knocked the fuck out. That shit was spectacular. Vorg vs Mike, Ippo vs Sendo ( Spar), Itagaki getting molly whopped, hopefully Ippo's fight is a treat to read too.
Should also be noted that Itagaki got crushed in the first round .
NIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIICE HE'S KO'd
So - guys, haven't logged on for ages but wouldn't mind knowing why the scans are so far behind and have been for a while?
I haven't had a chance to read the last.. 50 or so chapters. Anyone give me a summary? Particularly concerning ippo?
The stepping stone bit is the same, but not the ultimate goal of the opponent, as the manga itself has pointed out. I agree about Ippo winning, but this isn't just a copy of the Okita match.
1022 is out
Itagaki really looking like the villain in the final panel
HAJIME NO IPPO 1028
Spoiler: 1022 & 1028
You know - with all the call backs to the Okita that's been brought up for Alf, it slipt my attention that the Gaki v Imai ended in almost the exact same manner as that fight - with the higher ranked fighter lining up for the perfect counter but being unable to follow through because of devastating earlier damage.
Now that the baton pass has been brought up again, I hope that he'll give it back to Ippo. Ippo should never have given it away in the first place
Holy sh*t, best chapter ever all hail Imai I was so sure Itagaki was going to pull a BS win, glad it didn't happen.
Where is that Mr. Bison "yes" gif when you need it, cause that was my reaction to 1028
1028 - Great chapter and well deserved ...
win for Imai. The only thing that worries me now is Ippo losing and Itagaki being blamed.
I can't wait to read about his loss tbh.
I'm so happy. I can't believe Itagaki lost. Thank god. What a glorious chapter this is.
So, was it explained how Imai landed that first body blow? I mean, Itagaki usually dodges everything.
glorious chapter i must say again
but i need to see him suffer more. its not enough. i crave to see him wallow in sadness and pain.
