This series seems to have gotten a good following in Japan and abroad among some anime fans considering the multiple seasons of it that came out for it which prompted me to give it a peek. While I can see something like this appealing to younger audiences with the seemingly inspirational stories involving Goro and his father being laid out, the typical elements of shounen rearing their ugly head turned me off from this series. Bystanders tend to get amazed too easily at character feats, situations with Goro and his father appear to be resolved too easily and the series tended to dabble into melodrama during tense moments. Guess I'll be ditching this without a final review.
