Hajime No Ippo quotes here for you, as we strive to be your #1 source for Anime Quotes.  Now, truth be told Hajime No ippo had some of the best and most inspiration quotes and moments. Hence why we decided to make this list for you guys. If you have not watched Hajime No Ippo, it’s one of the best sports anime. Specifically a boxing anime. It will make you cry, and tear up all the time, if you’re like me. But that’s why I like anime in the first place. The story is about a shy, not confident person, who finds a passion. He becomes better and better, and is able to improve to a place where he’s able to compete with world class athletes. A  below average guy (ippo) doing amazing things in the boxing world. Along with him are his coach, and gym mates, or teammates you can say. A great story, if you want some motivation for yourself, and what it really takes to become the best at something.

The meaning for Hajime No Ippo = The First Step. And this is actually an irony on the main character’s name Makunouchi Ippo.

It’s really well done character development. Every fight lasts more than an episodes, and many lessons are learnt within them. It was a TV Show with its first season in (2000-2002).
