    Where in the world would they go with this, other than what the rocky films did? The story wrapped up with basically nothing left to be desired really. I guess they could go with the troupe where megeloboxing's popularity has dwindled or something and joe spices things up again and makes it popular again or some dumb stuff like that. He had no enemies or loose ends at the end of the series so there isn't really isn't anything from S1 that could be used to make a series really.

    True. In terms of Joe's story, it's gone full circle and I'm not sure if it could go in a better direction. But I feel like season 2 could be about Sachio, you know. Maybe it's his time now. You'll notice at the 11 second mark in the preview video, a young face with bruises on his face. That looks like Sachio. But you can never tell. It's anime. It can go in a totally different direction.

    That is true, I didn't think about him as being the main character. I could totally be down for something like that. I guess maybe if they did a major time skip where things are even more futuristic and stuff and they have a similar character troupe who wants to resurrect the same idea that joe did for the sake of bringing back good old fashioned boxing back to do another man vs machine type of thing that might also work, but definitely sachio's story would be a really good time if done right.

    A new teaser trailer for the sequel anime was streamed. The trailer reveals the anime's title as Megalobox 2: Nomad, and reveals the anime's returning cast, staff, and April 2021 television premiere date.






    Lowdown:

    In the end, “Gearless” Joe was the one that reigned as the champion of Megalonia, a first ever Megalobox tournament. Fans everywhere were mesmerized by the meteoric rise of Joe who sprung out from the deepest underground ring to the top in mere three months and without the use of gear. Seven years later, “Gearless” Joe was once again fighting in underground matches. Adorned with scars and once again donning his gear, but now known only as Nomad…
