@NinjaSushi I merged your thread with the one @Monster Trio made so we don't have two for the same manga. You two should talk a bit about the manga though :P

I'm so happy to find another fan.
Are you keeping up to date with the manga?
How do you feel about the artist saying he's only about halfway through what he wants to do.

Spoiler
I really hope Ippo makes his come back to boxing soon. I think now that he's realised his neglect of the "jab controls the fight" aspect and that he relied too much on the dempsey roll he could easily conquer the world
