Hajime no Ippo: Rising episode 19

The long-awaited match between Mamoru and yet another world champion has finally begun. Mamoru’s match against Brian Hawk was one to remember so I can only hope that this one will be just as good. Too bad that things might not go as I had hoped…

[HorribleSubs] Hajime no Ippo - Rising - 19 [720p].mkv_snapshot_06.34_[2014.02.17_22.06.02]The match starts out quite normally. The well-known Mamoru attacks head-on without even thinking, when suddenly Ichiro starts talking about a possible problem with Mamoru’s right eye. He thinks that Mamoru’s right eye is starting to go blind. There is no way that a god-like human being like Mamoru could ever lose his eyesight like that, right? Come on… His journey cannot end like this. I’m almost completely positive that he’s going to win this match, so why bother me with crap about his right eye not functioning properly anymore? Just because he didn’t dodge Ichiro’s punch that one time? Come on…

[HorribleSubs] Hajime no Ippo - Rising - 19 [720p].mkv_snapshot_19.33_[2014.02.17_22.06.39]Mamoru is fighting like a well-oiled fighting machine. Yes, he’s losing in points, but he is not going down any time soon. He is holding his own against an opponent like David, a guy that’s known throughout the world of being a hardworking champion that wins all his matches by fighting fair and square by keeping his head in the game.

Mamoru is the complete opposite. I don’t think there’s a shred of strategic fighting in Mamoru’s arsenal. He just relies solely on brute strength and managed to clear a path to the top by defeating destroying his opponents with strength and instinct alone. Watch, it may look like Mamoru’s losing right now, but he will come through in the end!
