Now, I'm not an expert on physical training, but swinging a mallet at a tire seems like it would put a lot of stress on the wrists too. Maybe not as much as straight up punching wood but still.

I don't think you understand. Nippon fist folded over 1000 times and runs on pure oxygen. Baka gajin have no chance. NIPPON STRONK.
>>
>>137152542
Goddamn that arc was good.

It's not like the guys fists survived either

guy was probably hitting with completely fractured hands by that point
>>
>>137155272
Yeah he sacrificed his hand and career just to take him out
>>
What does ippo do next bois
>>
>>137156452
he gets into a fight and gets beaten so badly he's retarded for 7 years

then he COMPLETELY CHANGES HIS STYLE so he doesn't have to make his mother worry anymore or something
>>
>>137156452
He has to get hungry.

This manga gets slower and slower the more characters it gets. I really wish it would go back to focusing on Ippo, so we could see some progress, and not just circlejerking about the supporting cast.

What an idiot.
>>
>>137157050
I don't know, I enjoy the fights that aren't the usual ippo sheanigans more

it's fun to see how the other characters deal with their problems, unfortunately a lot of the time they aren't given enough time to flesh out the fights
>>
>>137155678
Which is pretty dumb if you ask me, I mean he won nothing in the end, it just wasn't worth it. He was supposed to be some big time coach with a lot of experience behind him and almost legendary in a way, but not really he fought like 1 time for real and won against an American, he didn't even have a boxing career.
>>
>>137157611
I think most of the experience as a coach he got while being a coach, he really didn't seem to have any foundation that wasn't "JUST KEEP ON PUNCHING HARDER"
>>
>>137156452
He loses a glorious match against Sendo, ignores his promise about quitting and goes back with new passion to become a monster.
Actually, just ignore the part about fighting against Sendo and not quitting/becoming a monster, let's just have Sendo fighting people not Ippo.
>>
>>137157050
Supporting cast is better than Ippo.
Except for Itagaki and Miyata, and Takamura's fights tend to get drawn out for no good reason.
>>
>>137158466
>Supporting cast is better than Ippo.
Story-wise, the supporting cast adds a lot to the manga, but their fights are rarely interesting.

>Except for Itagaki and Miyata, and Takamura's fights tend to get drawn out for no good reason.

At least we agree on this. Hate the first two, and while I like Takamura as a character, his fights really do drag on.
>>
>>137158935
It's not like Ippos fights are always interesting.
The thing with supporting characters fights is that they're typically relatively short and only get drawn out if they're good.
>>
>>137158466
I enjoyed the fight where itagaki gets the shit beat out of him by his rival

good times
>>
>Niggers hating on Chronos
Get some taste, Itagaki vs Saeki was god tier.
>>
>>137158377
I doubt he'd ignore his promise, guy seems to care about his mother too much to kill himself in the ring
>>
>>137159456
literally a boxing genius for no reason

Takamura's fight against Rabbitson was the best thing ever
>>
>>137159456
Imai wrecking his shit was even better

>It's not like Ippos fights are always interesting.
They have actually been pretty few good ones over the past few years. Too many silly and gimmicky characters, that serve no purpose other than filler. And even against them, Ippo struggles.
The last fight was a bit more refreshing, because the fighter was more down to earth, and the result was actually something different.
Hope Ippo fights more semi-realistic fighters in the future, and that Morikawa evolves Ippo's style to something other than ramming his head into his opponents' fists until he magically pulls a victory out of his ass.
>>
>>137157611
>>137157733
He's a legend because Anderson was a renowned fighter who had been predicted to have won the world title if the war hadn't happened.

Also Kamogawa was fighting prize fights practically every other week it seemed, so he's had more fights than one would think.

He was also there for the birth of technical boxing in Japan, to see with his own eyes and what not.

It's not the fact that he's a legendary fighter, it's the fact that he's an encyclopedia of boxing knowledge and knows where all kinds of training can be applied.
>>
>>137159677
I think he'll be forced to change his style as there's been a couple hints at ippo slowly getting brain damage
>>
This whole WWII arc and that fight was probably the manga's most cringeworthy moment

>MUH YAMATO DAMASHII
>MUH JAPANESE PRIDE

>>137159956
you're surprised there's a lot of national pride during WW2? This shit all occurs in the rest of the manga
>>
>>137159956
I mean the american did play dirty, he was just a character that made us root for kamogawa more
>>
>>137159956
you forgot
