Another breakthrough for the Webtoon universe! Previously, printed manga was the primary source of inspiration for anime adaptations. With the likes of Shonen Jump and Kodansha pushing many franchises, technological advancement has assisted in providing new sources for anime to pull content from. WEBTOONS, digital comics that first appeared in South Korea, are still being published at a constant rate, and The Boxer is expected to be another huge notch in the genre owing to its planned anime adaptation.
As it stands, anime fans have already seen a slew of anime adaptations that began as WEBTOONs. Tower of God, Noblesse, and The God of High School are just a few instances of great anime that got their start owing to digital comics. When the Boxer anime adaptation finally hits the small screen, it will be in excellent company, since previous anime franchises such as Hajime no Ippo and Megalobox have covered the sport with zeal.
Jihoon Jung and Jeong Ji-Hoon’s webcomic The Boxer premiered first. According to reports, the next anime will consist of twelve episodes and will be produced by the newly created “Xtorm” animation studio. At the moment, the series has not indicated when we may anticipate the adaptation to premiere.
Curious to see what The Boxer is all about? Here’s WEBTOON’s describes the series:
Shall we see what you’re made of?” While searching for a final prodigy to train, legendary boxing coach K stumbles across a bewildering scene—an apathetic teenager simply standing still as his bullies throttle him. But Coach K sees more than this, sees the precision, grace, and uncanny perceptiveness in the boy’s movements. He knows right away that this is the fighter he’s been waiting for. Yet when he tries to recruit him, the boy with the lifeless eyes only asks one question: “Is it any fun? Hitting people…Is it fun?
