Helped established Shounen Jump in Japan and popularized Kuramada Masami's name in Japan.
There is an alcohol drink named after one of the techniques, Heart Break Cannon.
In 2001, shortly after Ring ni Kakero 2 started running in Super Jump, Shueisha decided to re-print Ring ni Kakero. Masami Kurumada took this opportunity to prune out portions of the early story so that readers can get to the part that the original manga became known for: The "SF Boxing", as fans called it. This re-print used the name "Ring ni Kakero 1", which the series is now known as, and shortened roughly 6 volumes worth of content (which the anime skips over) into 3.5 volumes. This pruning put the focus on Ryuji Takane's early rivalry with Jun Kenzaki without excising any of the major plot points of the early portion of the manga. The chapter numbering used on the encyclopedia is based off of the 2001 re-print.
