Megalo Box

Punching for greatness!

Even when boxing incorporates mechanized exoskeletal arms on its participants, match fixing is still rife and protagonist Junk Dog finds himself stuck in a loop of taking dives to live from paycheck to paycheck.

Every episode title has something to do with death.

This changes when he happens to run into the Megalo Boxing champion, igniting not just a rivalry but a burning desire in Junk Dog to defeat this opponent on the championship stage.

It's a good underdog series with decent characters, character growth (except for the main guy ironically), story line and boxing action with high quality art in a style reminiscent of Samurai Champloo and Cowboy Bebop. I quite enjoyed this one, but somehow feel "more" could have been done. If you are looking for an action anime with less sword and sorcery put this one on your list.
