1 Pound no Fukuin 1ポンドの福音 Ep 8 Screen Caps

Round 8 Goodbye Sister!! The Gutless Glutton’s Tearful Punch
Kosaku played by Kamenashi Kazuya (Nobuta wo Produce, Cartoon KAT-TUN ) sits in the gym eating remembering his bet and challenge with the champion. The manager informs him that the fight has been accepted and he’ll be fighting for the championship. She tells all the fighters that it’s a match the gym can’t afford to lose and that they should all help Kazuya as he prepares and trains for the match. As Kazuya runs through the park he meets Sister Angela played by Kuroki Meisa (Haikei, Chichiue-sama, One Missed Call), he tells her that he is to have a title match. But then lies saying that the host has reconsidered and decided to release her from the debt, because the host had deceived her into the debt to start with.

I really loved this episode it worked really well on a lot of different emotional levels. I can’t believe that there is only one more episode to go, it seems that the many storylines threads that have been plotted out with Ueda and the managers son might be rushed in the finale. The show didn’t garner very good rating in Japan and perhaps that’s why it’s ending so suddenly. But this is the best new show I’ve seen since last summer’s Hanazakari no Kimitachi e.
