Hajime no Ippo: Rising episode 21
Here we go. It’s just as everyone could have predicted. The better boxer, Mamoru, won and there is nothing wrong with his eyes. That thing about him going blind is still haunting me… Why in the hell would they shove that in there?
It was a rough fight and a very simplistic episode that could easily be summarized with only a few words. The guy has conquered two weight classes and is officially the strongest boxer in the world, again. So what if he fought blind for a couple of minutes (due to all of the blood in his eyes)? He knew exactly where to hit thanks to all the hellish training he had to endure.
It was a good episode. Mamoru won his match and Masaru finally got that haircut. I cheered at first and almost died laughing at the end. That’s what I like to see at the end of every match. No idea what they’re going to do next though. There’s a couple of episodes left so I’m guessing that Ippo is going to show us one more good fight.
