What are your thoughts on victory? Is it only about winning or enjoying the process to secure the victory?
The Boxer is an exceptionally unique webtoon of the sports genre as its name suggests. The story has beautifully woven the realities of life experienced by humans with the concept of boxing as its front.
The remarkable technique of story-telling which gradually builds up to each situation and event is what hooks the readers in.
The story is shown from the perspective of different people in the scenes thus giving a better understanding of the psyche of the characters. Although the story is mostly focused on one character as the protagonist, the other characters hold enough importance to contribute to the story.
With its one-of-a-kind plot, characters, and visuals, this stands to be one of the top-rated webtoons and we are very excited to see it being adapted into an anime.
Will There Be A “The Boxer Anime”?
The Boxer webtoon is written and drawn by Jeong Ji-hun (JH). The webtoon was serialized by LineWebtoon from May 28, 2020, and continued till June 23, 2022. The Boxer also has its officially published book format by Daewon C. I since October 29, 2021.
The story never fails to surprise you, even though there is the existence of a protagonist who will never lose, the fight scenes still keep you on edge. One thing which is well-received by fans is that the author could portray to its readers what they wished to portray through the story.
This deepens the connection between the reader and the story, thus making it an excellent choice to get an anime adaptation.
The story goes on to make the audience understand the concepts of life and death, by adding some light-hearted and comedic scenes, but also not holding back to delve into the depth of darkness and show the harsh reality.
The Boxer story leaves several clues and hints spread throughout chapters to foreshadow the upcoming event. Getting The Boxer Anime will surely not fail to engage viewers who are observing or like to make their theories, making it an interesting watch as well.
But the only drawback is the lack of popularity. Though it is deemed one of the best, not many people know about this hidden gem which is enthralling to read.
The Boxer Anime Release Date
The Boxer webtoon being rated at 8.41 in MyAnimeList and 9.86 in LineWebtoon proves that the story is one that has satisfied the expectations of the readers.
With all its elements and plot, this webtoon will surely be a hit among viewers as it does not take long to engage the audience in its appealing plot.
With the recent rise in webtoons getting animated, it can be hoped that some studios may animate it, taking into account its unique story which will be something fresh to serve the viewers.
