Hong Kong content distributor MediaLink Entertainment Limited's ANI-One YouTube channel began streaming the Megalobox television anime on Saturday. The channel will stream an episode daily at 6:00 p.m. IST.

Alongside India and Hong Kong, the anime is streaming in Bangladesh, Bhutan, Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Macau, Malaysia, Maldives, Mongolia, Myanmar, Nepal, Pakistan, the Philippines, Thailand, Vietnam, Singapore, and Taiwan.

The 13-episode anime premiered on TBS in April 2018. The show's home video releases in Japan feature new anime shorts. Viz Media licensed the anime and released it on home video in June.

The anime celebrates the 50th anniversary of Ikki Kajiwara (pen name Asao Takamori) and Tetsuya Chiba's Ashita no Joe manga, and it features an original story. In the new story, a man called JD (Junk Dog) participates in fixed boxing matches in an underground ring in order to live. Today, he enters the ring again, but he encounters a certain person. JD wants to take on a challenge that risks everything.

You Moriyama (animation director for Master Keaton and Lupin III: The Woman Called Fujiko Mine, concept designer for Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress and Attack on Titan) directed the series at TMS Entertainment, and he was also in charge of conceptual design. Katsuhiko Manabe (Shin Kyūseishu Densetsu Hokuto no Ken: Raoh-den Gekitō no Shō, Shin Kyūseishu Densetsu Hokuto no Ken: Raoh-den Junai no Shō) and Kensaku Kojima (live-action Shinya Shokudō series) both oversaw and wrote the scripts, and mabanua (Kids on the Slope) composed the music.

A sequel to the anime titled Megalobox 2: Nomad will premiere on April 4.
