Hajime no Ippo: Rising episode 22
Okay! Good! Well, not good, but it was a very enjoyable episode. That being said, there is very little about it that I want to share. It’s obvious, simple and quite informative. Episodes that shed light on characters’ pasts are always quite good in Hajime no Ippo. I wonder why…
Coach Genji… or should I call him coach Badass? I knew he was quite the brawler in his early days, but this… Awesome! He’s just like Ippo now, but without the well-mannered personality, of course. He struck me as the type of boxer that you really don’t want to fight head-on, but can beat if you outsmart him, especially since he gets angry quite easily.
Also, notice how a lot of the female characters on Hajime no Ippo look alike. This episode made me realize that once and for all. They have a lot of similar features (I think it’s the eyes and cheeks that does it). Ippo could very well like any other girl on the show. It’s basically the same thing. Either way, quite an amusing episode!
