Hajime no Ippo: New Challenger

Hajime no Ippo: New Challenger

Ippo continues his career as a professional boxer, trying to live up to his role as the Japanese champion. Now that a new generation looks up to him as both a role model and a target - even though he's still a little green behind the ears himself - Ippo must develop his skills both inside and outside the ring. Can the kind Ippo ruthlessly crush his challengers and be a man his younger peers can look up to? And ultimately, can he take his skills to the level where he can follow in Date Eiji's footsteps and aim for the international title? Pro boxing is a difficult sport; Ippo and his friends - even the mighty Kimura, must survive in a competetive world where all others must fall in order for one to rise to the top...

New Challenger is for boxing what Initial D is for car racing. After watching either anime, you will most likely feel like putting on gloves; To fight, or to drive. They are both inspirational, comical, and feature supremely skilled main characters in the chase for greatness.

During the exam Gon befriends vengeful Kurapika, doctor-to-be Leorio, and skilled assassin Killua, who have entered for their own reasons.

Initial D and IGPX are both about racing. They are both also very good series and I recommend that if you have seen one of these, you should see the other.

Both shows are about racing, although a bit diffrent bicycle/car the enjoyment is all the same. Main characters are a little unsociable at first but after a while they open up, they are equally talented and they train hard to achieve victory in races. If you like slow paced but fun to watch sport anime I think this is what you were looking for.

the awkward romance of Fujiwara Takumi and Mogi Natsuki were if not the highlight, at least an important part the initial d experience (not to mention the other little flings... Iketani and Itsuki both being hopeless :) of course in ranma, the romantic aspect is the best part, nothing being better than ranma and akane. and of course in both you have the strong theme (downhill racing and martial arts) that serves as a sort of framework for the rest.
