''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.

* AntiVillain : Youko. She antagonizes Joe mostly during the first half of the series, then organizes most of Joe's fights, and, as he puts it, toys with his fate like a demon. She is however a good person, [[spoiler: and grows to fall in love with Joe, who likes her back in his own way]].

Added DiffLines:

* TakeThatAudience: Part of the manga can easily be seen as a take that aimed at boxing audiences who want to see bloody slugfests and K.O's and dont care how dangerous and damaging these kinds of fights are to the boxers, or about the technical and strategic aspects of the sport. This is even explicitly brought up during one fight when the audience starts to complain that the fighters arent at eachothers throat every second, and justify it with that "they paid for a ticket".


Added DiffLines:

* TrainingFromHell: The training regimen Danpei puts Joe and Nishi through is brutal even by pro athlete standards, and especially difficult for Nishi, as he needs to drop and maintain a certain weight to qualify for Middleweight, even though he's a natural Heavyweight.
** Even Danpei's training is a cakewalk compared to what Riikishi puts himself through to reach bantamweight so he can fight Joe, including dehydrating himself to the point of delirium and locking himself up at night to keep himself from drinking any water. [[spoiler: The dangerous training ends up damaging his body to the point where his fight against Joe kills him]]
