Japanese featherweight boxer. Notable for his lengthy boxing career, yet he has never been a champion. Right before his title match against then-champion Eiji Date, his son fell ill which resulted in Take halting his boxing career. This incident caused his son to be bullied because the father was a "coward" for not facing Date. Take returned to the ring to prove to his son that he's no coward...by facing ''Ippo''.

* TheAce
* CavalierCompetitor

to:

* TheAce
TheAce: His technical ability is so high that it makes Takamura look like a Bryan Hawk-esque brute for the first half of the fight, he's got immense willpower and he can take incredibly strong hits repeatedly and stay on his feet.
* CavalierCompetitorCavalierCompetitor: He's more interested in a straight, honorable fight where injuries aren't exploited than actually winning. While this greatly pleases the audience, Takamura takes it as an insult and several of the onlooking boxers feel it's unsportsmanlike in that he doesn't deliberately do all he can to defeat his opponent.



* GracefulLoser

to:

* GracefulLoserGracefulLoser: He even catches himself in the middle of making excuses to himself, before dismissing those thoughts and admitting that Takamura is just better than him.



* TheStrategist
* WorthyOpponent

to:

* TheStrategist
TheStrategist: He's an extremely technical boxer who can defeat most of his opponents without ever having to divert from his slowly advancing pressure. However, he is capable of much more than just strategic fighting if he's pushed to it.
* WorthyOpponentWorthyOpponent: Even Takamura, who usually only treats his opponent like an obstacle, grudgingly admitted to it.

* {{Badass}}: Rather unusually for a Shonen protagonist, ''[[SubvertedTrope Subverted]]''. Even after all this time, no matter how fierce he gets in the ring, he still finds it hard to consistently maintain a badass image even as he defeats tougher and tougher opponents. Still, Subverted TropesAreNotBad either; he makes up for his lack of natural outward confidence and machismo with hard work and an intense inner spirit.

* {{Pride}}: Underneath his humorous personality, the guy is ''very'' cocky. The only thing that keeps him from being a SmugSnake is the fact that he's genuine friends with everyone at the gym. That doesn't stop [[TheScrappy fans from hating him]] for it, however.

We first meet Umezawa as a bully in Ippo's school who is constantly tormenting and eploiting him. However, as Ippo begins to get into boxing and grow more as a fighter, Umezawa notices the changes in him and discovers a newfound admiration for the guy he used to push around. He started to watch all of Ippo's fights and invite other delinquents to do so, as they were all boxing fans. After graduation, Umezawa decides to help Ippo by working at the Makunoichis' Fishing Shop so he could focus on his training. Currently he is easily Ippo's 1# fan and one of his best friends.

A beautiful young woman who adored sunflowers. Yuki met Kamogawa and Nekota at a boxing match in the 1950s. Smitten, they offered to put her up at Kamogawa's house to protect her from American soldiers. It was soon revealed, however, that Yuki was a victim of radiation poisoning from the [[UsefulNotes/WorldWarII American bombing of Hiroshima]], and that she had come to Tokyo in hopes of living out her last days in happiness. When Nekota left Tokyo to live in the mountains, Yuki went with him; Kamogawa asked her to take care of his now-impaired best friend. Although—or perhaps because—Yuki had fallen in love with Kamogawa, she spent the rest of her life in the mountains with Nekota as per his request, [[spoiler:dying peacefully some time later.]]

* {{Badass}}: And HOW.



* {{Jerkass}}: oh, boooooy.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: He certainly is a jerkass without remorse in every circumstance but ''one'': Boxing. He not only swore that he would never be dishonest about boxing, it is the only time he will act genuinely helpful to his gym mates, adopting a kind of big brother relationship with Ippo. He was even protective of ''[[ButtMonkey Aoki]]'' despite bullying him almost daily otherwise, simply because he felt that the sport itself was tainted by Aoki's opponent and his coach.
*** His introduction, significantly, is a major PetTheDog moment--saving Ippo from the bullies and [[DareToBeBadass challenging him to become strong.]]

* ADateWithRosiePalms: Sort of. Before he became a boxer, he burned off some his restless energy by constantly having his hands down his pants and fiddling around with himself. In public.

Aoki is good at baseball (people from his high school team say that if he and Kimura kept playing, they would have went to Koshien), bowling, and his ramen shop is extremely successful. He's also the only one of the main characters with a girlfriend.
