• Hajime no Ippo

    Throughout his childhood, Makunouchi Ippo has always been picked on by his fellow classmates. Long hours helping his mother run their family business, a fishing boat store, has left him without the time to make friends, and so he remains an introverted loner, doomed to be beaten day in and day out. Although he hates being bullied, he hates himself even more for not being able to fight back against his tormentors."What is it like to be strong?" he asks himself as he stares at his clenched fist. "I want to be strong." His encounter with Takamura Mamoru, a professional boxer, leads to the discovery of a dynamite punch that opens up the doorway to a whole new world where that dream can become a reality. At the Kamogawa Gym, Ippo now trains with the aspirations of becoming a professional boxer and discovering what it means to be strong.

  • Blue Lock

    Yoichi Isagi lost the opportunity to go to the national high school championships because he passed to his teammate who missed instead of shooting himself. Isagi is one of 300 U-18 strikers chosen by Jinpachi Ego, a man who was hired by the Japan Football Association after the 2018 FIFA World Cup, to guide Japan to winning the World Cup by destroying Japanese football. Ego's plan is to isolate the 300 strikers into a prison-like institution called "Blue Lock", in order to create the world's biggest "egotist"/striker, which has been lacking in Japanese football.

  • Wangan Midnight

    The story gets its roots from the actual street racing that occurs on Tokyo's Shuto Expressway, one stretch of which is known as the "Wangan", literally meaning "bay side" (although it is generally used to refer to the freeway), the longest, straightest road in the entire country. Of course, there's also lots of traffic to contend with, including a fair number of heavy trucks. Because of this, the action is inherently hazardous, and wrecks are common. Blown engines are also a frequent hazard, especially with the extreme-high power engines.
