    The first episode was great and got me really hyped up for what's to come. The atmosphere and art also work really well together

    Probably my favorite first episode of the season now, passing Lupin by a bit.

    Great first episode. Love the vintage feel that it has too. Kinda reminiscent of Red Line but with boxing instead of intergalactic nascar.

    Pretty solid start :kfam
    Animation style is on point, voice acting is great, JD has the potential to be a beast and a half.

    Looks like it'll be a good watch from start to finish.

    I heard Hosoya voice like 3-4 people in the animes I'm watching this season or at least checked out. It's good to see him back since he was out for a while due to a throat problem
