Well I suppose it's better than randomly mugging people on the street but I personally hate violent, so-called "sports"...

I love 'em. It's a testosterone thing.

It's a great pic, even if you loathe boxing, not the facial expression so much as the angle of Maegashi.

Yaegashi is a hero.

Akira, pleazzze one the most overrated and over hyped Anime just because for most it was 1st known exposure to Anime.

With the above picture all it reminds me of is "Ashita no Joe".

Akira is the only anime I've ever liked. I haven't watched that much, but what I did was pretty boring (to me). I've always found Akira interesting though.

Granted Akira got mostly famous due Kaneda's Bike, even though feet first rides already existed. I like older stuff like Jin-Roh( but prefer the 2 Tokusatsu Movies that preceded it), Votoms, Dougram, etc.

Anime really covers most themes and genres.

Ashita no Joe is a classic about a Boxer that secretly supports an Orphanage.

Here in the states, there's a lot of hand-wringing about kids playing football and taking repeated blows to the head, yet there's hardly a peep about kids in the poverty areas trying to use boxing as a way to make money. In football the goal isn't to cause concussions, but in boxing, the PRIMARY goal is to cause such a heavy concussion that the opponent is rendered unconscious. Yet nobody mentions that. :-/

If two people want to get in the ring and fight, who is anyone to stop them?

Both fighters' face not look good so it must be good fight.
