Ain't there anyone here for love?

Another sub of the Prince of Tennis movie, this time in much better English. The group is Anime7. I didn't watch the whole thing through, since I'd seen it recently, but I jumped here and there to check it out. Still no sign of the Atobe short, but I have hope!

In other news, I'm 12 episodes into Hajime no Ippo and enjoying it very much. (There are 76 episodes + OVAs.) It's a sports series, of course, about boxing. This is the first sports series I've followed that's not school-based. Ippo is in high school, but he's boxing at a gym, not for a school club.

Ippo is voiced by Kiyasu Kohei in that sweet little scratchy voice he has, like the one he uses for Aikawa, only much less hyper. Ippo has no friends, since he's shy and has to rush home every day to help his mother with the family business. He's picked on by bullies, to no one's surprise. But when he meets a pro boxer, Takamura, things start to turn around.

This is a pretty straightforward series, at least so far. Not a lot of complexity or depth. But it's very sweet and fun and I'm quite attached to Ippo.

I've also downloaded 68 volumes of the manga, though I don't know when I'll find time to read through it. That's not even all of it, either. It may even still be ongoing; I'm not quite sure.
