Man, I knew it! A DVD-Box for New Challenger popped up on Amazon.co.jp yesterday, after all these years, so I knew something must be coming!

Hope the seasons become more regular. I remember Takamura's voice actor saying they were already planning the third season while they were working on New Challenger, so I wonder what the hold up was.

Well, this seems like the best time to start the first two seasons. I've read the first few volumes of the manga back when it first came out in French a few years ago (there's now something like 30-40 volumes out from the 100+ volumes in Japan, French publishers don't kid around when it comes to the classics Laughing )

Liked what I read though, so I think I'm in for a good time.

yeah the french do manga right, American publishers vomit blood at the prospect of publishing a 10+ volume manga never mind 100+ sports one lol

Yup Rikaya Koyama mentioned that indeed but i was starting to think that the plan was canceled or so. Thank god that more of Ippo is on the way. And i really hope that the seasons continue to cover all of the manga.

Sight* I really hope someone licenses the show Crying or Very sad

Now where is Shin Mazinger Season 2 ? Mad

not a chance, geneon released the first series and it bombed, anime/manga fans in america hate sports stories.

YES. YES!

I was starting to think a continuation wouldn't happen, since a "third season" was teased almost 4 years ago.

I will be watching this one. Just don't count on it being officially licensed at all.
