Japanese really loves to read sports manga especially when it comes to boxing. I think my fingers are not enough to count all the good or decent boxing manga out there. There are tons and I think I can’t write all reviews about them. I am just a human in the end.
We all know that it is normal for an anime to have a movie adaptation but having a live-action movie is a next level upgrade. Come to think of it, that a manga having improved and brought back live straight into a live-action movie is just superb. Ashita no Joe proved itself that its sports manga story and plot is above any other sports manga out there.
Given the chance, I would purchase an extra two seasons of Ashina no Joe anime adaptation on a DVD platform and give away it to a lucky new friend.
