Hajime no Ippo" manga goes on 1-week hiatus

Hajime no Ippo" manga goes on 1-week hiatus

This year's 20th issue of Kodansha's Weekly Shōnen Magazine revealed that George Morikawa's boxing manga "Hajime no Ippo" would be on hiatus this week to prepare for the magazine's combined 21st and 22nd double issue.

K MANGA publishes the series in English and describes the manga as: What is it like to be strong? That's the question on the mind of Ippo Makunouchi, a clumsy high school boy who gets bullied a lot. But when he meets professional boxer Mamoru Takamura, it's not long before the dynamite in his fists is unleashed! Dreaming of joining Takamura in the professional ranks, Ippo joins him at the Kamogawa Boxing Gym - and there his quest for true strength begins, in and out of the ring!

The manga inspired an anime adaptation in 2000, followed by the sequel "Hajime no Ippo: New Challenger" in 2009 and the sequel "Hajime no Ippo Rising" in 2013. The series also inspired the special "Hajime no Ippo - Champion Road" and an original anime "Hajime no Ippo - Mashiba vs. Kimura" in 2003.

Kodansha began releasing the manga digitally in 2021. The 140th compiled volume of the manga was released on February 16. The first 110 volumes of the manga are currently available on Kodansha's Magazine Pocket website. The manga celebrated over 100 million copies in circulation in July. George Morikawa launched "Hajime no Ippo" in 1989, and his only manga release.
