'''''Ashita no Joe''''' (English title: "Tomorrow's Joe") a critically acclaimed boxing manga created by Asao Takamori and Tetsuya Chiba in 1968 that was later adapted into an anime series and movie. While absurdly popular in its home country, it's almost completely unknown outside of it. Outside Japan, it is also referred to as ''Rocky Joe'' or ''Joe''. Creator/MasamiKurumada, author of ''Manga/SaintSeiya'', has also stated that he actually created his first famous manga (''Manga/RingNiKakero'') as a tribute to this one.

*** Youko's first introduction in the manga (c.11) is as an audience member at Joe's trial. She was the person who donated all the money to Joe's scheme with the children, and didn't have a speaking role with him in that chapter. In the anime series, we are shown Joe tricking her himself, inside her home with all the kids, and insulting Joe after the trial is over. [[TropesAreNotBad This actually makes their antagonism more personal.]]
*** Joe managed to escape the prison in the anime, something he never did in the manga. He returned because he couldn't face the fact he didn't had a fight with Rikishii.

** The second series isn't short of this either. The backstories of some characters are expanded upon, including Wolf Kanagushi and Jose Mendoza.

** The second series isn't short of this either. The backstories of some characters are expanded upon, including Wolf Kanagushi Kanagushi(who now has a fiancée) and Jose Mendoza.Mendoza(who is stated as an ace since he was ''sixteen'').
*** Jose Mendoza in general gets more screen time, and unlike the manga, his view on Joe evolves to a similar type of FriendlyRivalry that his past opponents shared.
*** On top of that, there's added ShipTease between [[spoiler: Joe and Yoko]]
