Hajime no Ippo main image

Ippo Makunouchi is an average and overly-shy high school teenager. His mother runs a fish boat shop and he constantly has to help her with it, and thus has no friends. Constantly bullied because of this, Ippo wonders what it would be like to be strong. A chance encounter with Takamura Mamoru, an up and coming boxer in the Japanese ranks, leads to Ippo's revelation that he has an incredible punch. Takamura sees potential in Ippo, and brings him into Kamogawa Gym. Thus begins Ippo's journey to discover just what it's like to be a winner. With a fighting spirit, can Ippo eventually become a professional boxer?
