Takeshi Obo - "Beautiful Wolves"
One of the great things about Japan is the sheer number of boxing related anime's and manga's. Whilst it's not something we're massively glued up on, preferring to follow the real sport than the fiction related to it, the depth of boxing fiction in Japan is rich and deep.
One of the many great series is the "Ashita No Joe" series, also known as "Tomorrow's Joe".
For the 1980 "Tomorrow's Joe" movie we saw Takeshi Obo's track "Beautiful Wolves" used as the theme tune.
For those familiar with the animated series this will be a very familiar track. For those who don't follow it, like ourselves, this is a nice little music treat and a chance to enjoy some 1970's Japanese pop music.
Some things don't fit in elsewhere on the site so have been put here as a result.
