The 39th issue of Kodansha's Weekly Shōnen Magazine is announcing the cast and staff for the upcoming Hajime no Ippo Rising anime on Wednesday.

Jun Shishido (Hajime no Ippo: New Challenger, The Princess and the Pilot) will direct the anime at Mad House and MAPPA from scripts by Kazuyuki Fudeyasu (Hajime no Ippo: New Challenger, Tantei Opera Milky Holmes). Koji Sugiura (Hajime no Ippo, Mobile Suit SD Gundam Festival) will be designing the characters, and Masafumi Mima (Hajime no Ippo - Champion Road, Guilty Crown) will take the position of sound director.

Hajime no Ippo: New Challenger, the second season of the anime, aired in 2009. NTV will stream both series for free in Japan from August 3 until September. Hajime no Ippo Rising will premiere this fall.
