30+ New Episodes of the Boxing-Themed anime “Hajime no Ippo”

Greetings, esteemed audience. I have gathered you here today to share the recent news that Netflix has added even more episodes of the much-acclaimed anime series, “Hajime no Ippo.”

“Hajime no Ippo” is an amazing anime that if you haven’t seen yet… you are missing a big chunk of entertainment, really. It’s definitely among my all-time favorite anime and surely the one I most want a new anime season of at this point (of the unlikely ones, I mean). Luckily, Netflix is now bothering to do something that should have happened a long time ago: make the “Hajime no Ippo” anime available for people to watch legally.

At this point, Netflix has the first 76 episodes of the Hajime no Ippo anime already available, or what amounts to the same, the entire first season that aired at the time.

Is this the whole Hajime no Ippo anime? Well no, the truth is that in addition to more than 50 remaining episodes, there are also some specials and movies. Of course, not all this content makes up the entire story, which has been progressing in the manga over the years and is well ahead of where the Hajime no Ippo anime concludes.

To see more of Hajime no Ippo anime after Netflix one must go to Crunchyroll, although I already advance that even on that platform the rest of the anime is not available. In USA, we still have important holes even with this new addition of Netflix.

If I can make only one wish in anime key for this 2023, knowing now that the manga of “Hajime no Ippo” is nearing the end, that would clearly be that they would announce a season 4 of the anime. As the years go by, I see it more and more difficult for them to announce a continuation of this anime gem, so if they finally give the green light to something different like a reboot, I won’t complain either.
