Hajime no Ippo has to be the best Manga and Anime I have ever seen or read. This is the pinnacle of animation and manga for me. I have never been a fan of sports animes or mangas before, but the story telling and animation in the HnI case has completely changed me. This is the best anime for me. As much as an old weeboo as I may be; I recognize the great potential the Hajime no Ippo manga has. I look forward to the next installments.
