The manga is pretty endless. It could easily run another 500. I would say read every 10-20 chapters.
Especially since it deviated from beat one and advance plots. And even when he was advancing it didn't even feel like he had gotten that far either. In OP atleast you can get a feel like we are approaching endgame, Ippo has nothing that gives you that feeling.
Really? I always felt like Sendo was the impatient reckless one and he was the calmer one with great admiration for his mentor. Like if you refuse a fight to Sendo he will probably fly the handle and will just ignore your refusal where Hoshi would try to find a compromise and realistic way to do it.
Oh yeah compared to Sendo he's the smart one. But being fluent in English in Japan feels like a pretty brainy good at school type of thing. Or maybe i've just bitten into the stereotype that Japanese people don't tend to learn second languages.
I could see Martinez denying him. I'm not sure Sendo has enough of a profile to intrigue him. His fighting style is pretty straight, he got a decent number of losses and his ranking is not that high.
True. But i assume he'll force the issue like how he got Takamura to full on punch him in the face. He's got ways to provoke ya.
He would probably faint from the stress before he can.
The whole thing has gone all the way around from funny, to get on with it, to i don't care and back to being sorta funny again in a scant two decades.
