Ryuuji Takane is a young boxer who's determined to make it big and become a champion. His sister, Kiku, stands by his side as his trainer; together, they aim for the top. Ryuuji's first challenge is a middle school boxing tournament in which his arch rival Jun defeats him in the final round, though crippling his own arm in the process. Though victorious, due to his injury Jun suggests Ryuuji take his place in the Champion Carnival, an upcoming competition filled with the strongest of the strong. And so, Ryuuji and Kiku set forth to train hard and prepare for the Champion Carnival. With the help of his newly-learned ‘Boomerang Hook' skill  and sheer will power, Ryuuji will do whatever it takes to win the title!

Ashita no Joe

Ashita no Joe

Yabuki Joe is a scoundrel, plain and simple. He's confident, cocky, a con artist and a drifter, and one hell of a fighter too -- or at least, that's what Tange Danpei, the washout and drunk ex-boxing coach believes. Danpei is so sure of Joe's ability to be a pro boxer that he gives up the drink and works hard to earn money to build a gym; but Joe, on the other hand, has other plans that are not nearly as noble. Can Danpei convince this loose cannon to pick up the gloves and box like a world class champion?

If you enjoyed Ring ni Kakero's soulless and endless battles combined with zero character development, you'd definitely enjoy the far superior Ashita no Joe. It has all the boxing action you'll need, with deep characters and touching moments to boot.
