What is Megalo Box Season 2 About?
In futuristic Japan, the lives of citizens are drastically dissimilar due to the growing wealth disparity. While the licensed citizens enjoy their lives in affluent cities with modern facilities, the unlicensed citizens are forced to live in slums. Junk Dog, a young man who leads an unfulfilling life, participates in fixed Megalo Boxing (a sport similar to boxing but with powered exoskeletons) fights to earn his living. His life takes a dramatic turn when one day he unknowingly confronts Yuri, the champion of Megalo box sport. On Yuri’s challenge, J.D prepares for the Megalonia tournament by procuring a proper citizenship ID from the mob boss, Fujimaki. After being given three months to prepare for the big tournament, J.D puts everything on the line for the opportunity to redeem himself.
In season 1 we witness, J.D embarks on an unforgettable journey that not only helps him leave his past behind but also makes up for the years of resigned living. In just three months of training and hard work, he climbs his way to the top of the boxing world after fighting for little to no recognition in the underground circuit. However, seven years after becoming the champion of Megalonia, J.D finds himself back into the harsh conditions from which he once rose with his passion and dedication. His shocking fall is just as surprising as his meteoric rise in the sport, and season 2 of ‘Megalo Box’ captures this downfall along with J.D’s struggle to make his name in the ring again.
