About Tomorrow's Joe The Movie Blu-ray/DVD

In Tomorrow's Joe: The Movie, Joe Yabuki is a troubled youth, whose only solution to problems is throwing punches at them. What he lacks in manners and discipline, he makes up for with his self-taught fighting skills.

One day, while wandering the slums of Doya, Joe gets into a fight with the local gang. Although greatly outnumbered, he effortlessly defeats them, drawing the attention of Danpei Tange—a former boxing coach turned alcoholic. Seeing his potential, he offers to train Joe into Japan's greatest boxer. At first, Joe dismisses Danpei as a hopeless drunk; but after the trainer saves his life, he agrees to live with him and learn the art of boxing. Unfortunately, Joe's personality makes him an unruly student, and he often falls back to his old ways.

To survive the harsh world of his new career, Joe needs to trust his mentor and master the techniques taught to him. However, the road to becoming a professional boxer is rife with struggles that will test his mettle to the end.

A masterpiece

by

Amazing movie/anime series. The character development and story is on point. The intensity is there and Joe is a character that you will see develop over time and take on boxing. His best rivals were Rikiishi,Carlos and Jose

A Great Introduction

by -

The entire first TV series condensed into one 150-minute movie. Also the only way to (legally) experience the first part of Joe's story in English. A hugely influential story that has gone criminally neglected in the U.S., though that may change as Discotek says they will look into releasing more Joe if this sells well.

But is it worth it? Absolutely. Flawless picture, great sound, an excellent translation. A great place to start for anyone who wants to know what Ashita no Joe is all about.

Well Worth The Purchase

by

It was nice to see the first movie available re-released from Discotek Media. The dub isn't bad, it gives it that good old-school vibe, and the English subtitle translation is excellent. The movie condenses the Joe 1 anime into a 2 and a half hour film, so a lot of content with character development is cut, but it is still fun to watch. It's more like a clip show, though it gets the gist of the story across without being confusing.

If you're looking to get into Ashita no Joe, I recommend picking up this movie. I hope that Discotek Media will license the original anime and perhaps give us an AnJ 2 home video release, too. I would gladly buy more AnJ if they bring more to the U.S.
