What Have Fans Seen From The Previous Episodes
Hajime no Ippo follows the story of a young boy named Ippo Makunouchi. Ippo is always busy in aiding his mother to run their family business. Ippo was not the most popular kid he had no friends. Because of this, he was a victim of bullying by other kids. One day, he was being brutally bullied by a few bullies. That is when Mamoru Takamura, a renowned professional boxer, saved him.
Takamura then takes Ippo to the gym where he trains, Kamogawa Gym. There, Ippo sees other boxers training with a lot of zest. He is angered at what had happened to him. Takamura allows Ippo to vent out his emotions on a sandbag. While Ippo was at it, Takamura sees the hidden talent Ippo has for boxing. Later on, Ippo decides that he needs to become a professional boxer. But he faces multiple obstacles in order to win the right to be trained by Kamogawa and Takamura.

It is believed that after the end of the third season, Ippo is going to have an emotionally challenging time. In the fourth season of Hajime no Ippo, Ippo will have a hard time figuring out why he really became a fighter? What is his purpose? and so on. He already has many titles in the bag and has proven himself to be among the best boxers of the world.
