What They Say
No one ever expected the gentle and self-conscious Ippo Makunouchi to ever join the Kamogawa Boxing Club - much less punch his way to the top of the Eastern Japan Rookie Championship Tournament! But after a chance meeting with a legendary boxer inspires him, Ippo finds the confidence to face down almost anything: challenging opponents, dirty tricks and even a near-crippling injury - such is the power of a Fighting Spirit!

A value-priced 8 disc set.

40 Episodes contained in one space saving volume.

Based on one of the best-selling sports manga in Japan by Jyoji Morikawa, Hajime no Ippo.

Fighting Spirit was animated by Madhouse (Trigun, Chobits, Texhnolyze) and directed by Satoshi Nishimura (Trigun, Street Fighter Alpha)!
