Hajime no Ippo: Rising episode 17
Okay, I’m short on time and I really don’t have much to say about this episode. I kind of saw it coming and knew that it would only end up giving me stomach pains. The comedy in Hajime no Ippo is really powerful, my god.
The first match was bearable. Tatsuya had a decent match against a decent opponent. You could easily tell that it wasn’t all that serious. His hair was pretty much all he could think about. The next match was simply brutal. It’s bad enough that Masaru likes to mess about in the ring, but now another one jumps in and they’re actually fighting each other using the same ridiculous style. It was truly brutal. Watching that Papaya’s face was more than my poor stomach could handle. I laughed so much that I actually had to skip a minute to spare me any more stomach pains. I really hope that the next few episodes will be a bit more serious.
