Megalo Box- Episode 11: The Price of a Dream

Sometimes a lie that goes on long enough eventually becomes true.

In the best case scenario, Nanbu finally sees clearly on what’s truly important. I wasn’t too keen on Sacchio’s scene this episode, and admittedly I wasn’t ever big on his character, but it was still a poignant decision that made Nanbu relinquish what Fujimaki hanged over him from the start of the series. All that remains is the final bout.

Pepe and Glenn surprised me with their voices during the press conference and I guess I didn’t fully believe Fujimaki would let things slide without having something to massively gain. The set up for what will truly happen ends up like the beginning of the series where Joe is asked who to bet for and against while Nanbu clearly has something scheming.

The deciding battle begins.

The true skill of Mikio’s ability in both engineering and boxing come face to face with what Yuri seems to acknowledge as the “real deal” when it comes to Joe’s only reliance on his guts and skill. Only one spot remains in the Final Four and there seems to be something else a foot in what we previously thought as a conditional ally.

The long climb has the summit in view.

Joe seemingly has one more opponent to conquer before he is able to obtain the favor of the Megalonia board to have him be the last entrant in the 4-man competition and enter as the supreme underdog. The last fighter in Joe’s way however has more than just an advanced gear to fight with however.

Aragaki turned out to be a cool guy after all.

I got a bit more distracted than I would have liked after picking up some VNs to read in my free time. As you can see, my schedule and timings got pushed back but hopefully this won’t happen too frequently. Aragaki turned out to be a more likeable than I thought but the fight itself, while conveying a lot of emotion felt a bit lacking.

Sure enough, the Top 100 rankings were too full of chumps for us to really pay attention to so we might as well feast our eyes on the spectacles that the Top 20 can bring us before Joe can have his rematch with Yuri. Breaking into the Top 15-10 has Aragaki stand in Joe’s way, a man from Nanbu’s past coming back to “repay” his gratitude in a very specific way.

Joe’s first fight makes quite a wave for himself by improvising his lack of a gear as a selling point.  A rather bold move for a rather dangerous sport where even grazes makes cuts across faces. Joe is up for the first sanctioned fight in his career and it’s up in the air if his experience and mettle of throwing matches will come to be enough where he won’t be doing anything of the sort.

The results of the fight are pretty amazing though.
