Anime Download: Hajime no Ippo: New Challenger Anime 28 MAY 2010

The young, likeable nice guy, Ippo Makunouchi continues his boxing career, forever working towards that goal of finally knowing the meaning of being strong. However, the desire to fight his idol of old, Ichiro Miyata burns as strong as ever, but in order to get there he is going to, as per usual, have to face and beat down a host of strong competitors in the ring first!

Hajime no Ippo was a surprising anime hit when it first kicked off back in 2000, lasting all the way through to 2003 for a run of 76 episodes. The story of the ultimate nice guy underdog shoved into the brutal world of boxing captured the attention of everyone and I must admit to having thoroughly enjoyed this unusual sports anime.

In any event, there was much rejoicing when a follow up series was announced and at the start of January 2009, Hajime no Ippo: New Challenger hit the screens, staying there for a full 26 epsiode run.

The story pretty much follows on from the first season and so fans were thrust straigh back into the life of Ippo, following his training, fighting and personal life in what is actually a pretty engaging, comical and action-packed series.

Well worth watching if you are a sports anime genre fan then in other words!

Anyway, as is now the norm, I’ve scoured the free download sites like MegaUpload, RapidShare and MediaFire and have compiled this list of easy to download files for you to enjoy!

(Trust me, this one is going to be a knockout! :P)
