A dark underground ring.
A man known as JD (Junk Dog) once more throws himself into a fixed match in order to live.
However, that’s when he meets his destiny - a destiny he wants to challenge with all of his might.
Three Episode Impression
As someone who has not seen Ashita no Joe nor has the desire to, there is something very interesting about the way Megalobox presents itself. Sure, there is lots of boxing and talk of boxing, but the rundown dystopia of the city in contrast with what Joe lives in beckons to the great cyberpunk era of anime and makes for a fun story. We see elements of the great Spike Spiegel in Joe making him all the more likeable. The story is setting itself up, and it’s clear that matches will start in episodes 4 or 5. The series looks like it was set in a world akin to Michiko to Hachin or Garo: Vanishing Line and honestly, we are here for it. If you want an anime that is going to probably be overlooked by the masses, then this is a fantastic watch for the season. It’s only 1 cour, but the story could get more from the way it is going as the world expands with each episode.
