Hajime No Ippo Chapter 1430 Recap
Even though Hajime No Ippo is about Ippo Makunouchi, Hajime No Ippo Chapter 1430 was dedicated to Shinigami or Ryō Mashiba and his tragic past. Ryō has a sister named Kumi, and this Chapter sheds light on the struggles that they faced, especially the brother. After the death of their father, the siblings went down a dark path.
They had no money or savings or influence and had no one to support them. As a result, Ryō joined a criminal gang to earn money, but it had negative consequences. Soon after, people stopped talking with Ryō because of all the rumors that had him centralized. No matter how hard he tried to provide a stable and safe life and home for his sister, Kumi, he could not do so due to these outside influences.
Ryō tries a lot to find out what made his father sign so many contracts that led them to this financial crunch. Even his gang seemed fun at first until he had to clean up the messes his bosses would create. Kumi’s school also started acting up because they did not want to be associated with such a family. All of this makes Ryō wonder how he is supposed to move on with his sister.
