Hajime no Ippo:New Challenger continues the story of Hajime no Ippo.
This show did not start out unrealistic but has gotten pregressively extremly unrealistic as it has gone on to the point of being annoying.

Story: 7/10
Unfortunately this second season of Hajime no Ippo was considerably weaker compared to the first season, it was not as realistic as the previous nor as enjoyable and well thought as the previous.
This season should have been named Hajime no Takamura instead of Hajime no Ippo. It focused too much on the other characters instead of focusing on Ippo. I have no problem watching 5 episodes of Takamura’s or Date’s fights but give me at least one good fight of Ippo’s. This second season ended without even one good fight from Ippo but we did see an amazing fight from Takamura.
Ippo’s fights have become predictable and boring, following the same old pattern: Ippo gets owned> Ippo makes a good comeback> Opponent makes a comeback> Eyes glow green> Ippo defeats the opponent with his boring Dempsey Roll.

Characters: 7/10
Most of the characters are just the way they were in the first season, no further development whatsoever. When the first season ended I hoped they would further develop Ippo’s character during season 2 but nothing of that sort ever happened. I was hoping Ippo would act and behave like a pro boxer and the champion in the ring but he is still acting like a rookie, getting beat up by guys with far less experience, skills or power. In the real world, because of the way Ippo fights and the ammount of damage he receives, he would retire by the time he is 23 due to severe brain damage. , Not further developing Ippo’s character was one of the biggest mistakes and dissapointments.

Animation: 8/10
The animation is fluid, the fight scenes are well coreographed but I feel that the original, old art was more well suited to the tone of the show.

Sound: 8/10
Great opening theme, decent ending theme, nice background music but the voice of the match commentator was very annoying.

Enjoyment: 6/10
I didn’t enjoy this season very much, it is not a bad season in any way, just weaker compared to the 1st season.

Overall: 7/10
This season was nowhere close to the original, it just felt like a sad shadow of what 1st season of Hajime no Ippo was, I still recommend this series to anyone

You know, I've always loved boxing. Yet i never imagined that anime series about boxing could be much more interesting than the "real thing". Well, actually, It's not! In this anime you don't just have pure fight, action non-stop. NO! You get to know each one of the characters in the series. It's like you're one part of this anime. I don't know, I've never felt it before. The "gang"...It always looked like I am part of it, laughing and sorrowing with them. Watching them get beat up and yet stand again. I know this review sounds like shit, and there are 100% lot better reviews then this, but I'm sorry, i can't write review about this series and not get my emotions here. You know, reviews are about scores, studying all segments of series, but this anime HAS SOUL. The characters are so vivid, and real. You have so many different people here, each one better than another, all unique in some sort of way. It blows you off. It sucks you in. This anime shows that there is no just "brute force" in boxing. Those boxers have something that keeps them on surface, not letting them sink. And it actually shows you that this is not impossible. This is not an anime about some superhero. You can be just one of these people. With your friends, your guts, your will, will of steel. It shows you that there is nothing, NOTHING more important, NOTHING more valuable than FRIENDSHIP. It seems stupid, but that's the thing that can push you up when you feel like dying. And you know what? Forget crap like marks. I cannot grade it. It doesn't deserve any number. Because when you put one part of your soul in something, you cannot give it any limitations. I started up, thinking this review is gonna be very short. But... When you are touched by something, you just cannot stop. And now i'm feeling a bit lighter, because I've shared this with you. I don't care if this was helpful or not. When this anime ended, I've lost part of my soul with it, but yet i learned something that cannot be learned in any school. -I've learned what is the thing that makes man GREAT.
