Mainly because the music was shit by comparison, but also because they utilized visual techniques in the first one that were really out there for the time period.

Rikishi is overrated as hell, the faggot only had to lose 7 pounds fucking cry baby. And I hated how the anime made him into some kind of legendary character where in the manga he was just normal guy who came to a unfortunate end.

The way this scene happens really left an impact, because nothing else in the series creates this psychological tension. You really felt the magnitude of Rikiishi's death on Yabuki

The movie is how it should have ended. Midnight Blues during that scene was all kinds of wrong. I had to actually go back and watch the movie version of the scene when I finished it because it bothered me so much. Way too much overuse of music and out of place music in the second season.

Yes, you'd miss a decent amount of Joe's growth as a boxer,how he evolves as a boxer and the friendships he's established in season 2 as well as missing out on one of the best rivalries in all of anime

I disagree. Read the manga after if you want and base your opinion that way. That way you can like the anime the first time and like the manga more the second time instead of liking the manga and then nitpicking things in the anime. I watched the anime first and even if the manga is better the anime is still miles ahead of most other anime.

>>135598189

Really what makes Ashita no Joe so great as a series is the contrast between who he is at the very beginning, and who he is towards the end. He actually does mature as a person and it's not just like he cuts his hair and then suddenly he "truly sees his flaws" like in other shows. It is a very gradual, subtle change from a complete asshole with no regard for anyone to a man with respect for the art of boxing.

No dude the anime adds too many stupid subplot's about characters we don't care about, it also brings attention to things that it should not have basically spoiling future scenes. Too much Rikishii circle jerking also, they act like this guy was fucking mike tyson or something.

The first Opening is the only opening I never skipped even if I binge watched 20 episodes. So fucking great and perfect mood setter.

Meh, the only sport that I would like to watch in some anime is swimming, and that's just because I swim regularly. I don't find entertaining watching someone having fun if I can't participate, and I don't like things like boxing or football (thats for boys), but I'm going to make an exception with this one because it's looks awesome.
>>135598862
Uuu... I don't know what to do.

>>
>>135598862
>too many stupid subplot's about characters we don't care about
Like what?
I cared. You are complaining about added depth in an age where we have hardly any. Everything is forced into 12 episode cours

>brings attention to things that it should not have basically spoiling future scenes
The whole thing is basically spoiled by now due to fame. Unless you're new to anime this shouldn't matter.

>too much rikishii circle jerking
He is barely in the show at all considering it's almost 130 episodes.
And that's probably because by the time the later parts of the anime had come out, they'd already held real life mock funerals for Rikiishi and made him a legend.
>>
>>135599555
Like him visiting rikishi's (you know what) that shit never happened in the manga. They didn't even add the part's when joe was acting eerie and distant for some reason. In the end of the manga joe was basically villian but in the anime they make him more into a antihero wjo last his way.

I disagree about Joe's maturity. One of the things that make AnJ an extraordinary work imho is that Joe does not mature at all. Yes, he grows respect for the art of boxing, but he will always act on instinct, regardless of who he hurts. As he himself says, he is only interested in living his life as a burning flame, consuming itself until nothing but white ashes remains.
>>
>>135600908
Either way Joe is my favourite MC

Why does the art look so similar to Rose of Versailles? the lead artist should be sued for plagiarizing

>>135604377

Rose of Versailles has a style that's a lot more delicate or beautiful, while Ashita no Joe has more of a rough, masculine look (in a good way)
