Perhaps the reason why they are still not officially a couple has to do with the pacing of the plot. If the love of the story is resolved, then there won’t be much left for them to grow as a couple. However, this mainly applies to series that do not have more than 1000 Chapters.
One Piece is also a series that has crossed the 1000 Chap mark, but the love story has never been the main focus of the series. In Ippo, romance is very important because Kumi has been a spiritual support for a lot of time. Furthermore, after going through it recently, it doesn’t seem like the events will end any time soon.
Hajime no Ippo Chapter 1421 Summary
Hajime no Ippo Chapter 1421 brings Ippo to his knees before his one-time rival, Ryo Mashiba. He was at odds with him for a long time, although he was mostly a pacifist when approaching him. After all, he is dating his sister and wants to be closer to him in the future and have him as Oni-San.
Ryo takes a casual stance when it comes to the men in Kumi’s life and declines their offer to meet. However, Ryo is also a boxer and once fought Ippo and lost in that fight. Ryo doesn’t want some weaklings to have his sister, and Ippo, after defeating him, has some respect for him.
This is why he is willing to give Ippo a chance to prove himself and prove that his love for Kumi is real. That, not surprisingly, Ippo failed; and in every single test, to the surprise of both people. This led Kumi to devise an actual test that was a free test, which he subsequently failed.

Hajime no Ippo Chapter 1422
Hajime no Ippo Chapter 1422 will witness the aftermath of Ippo’s visit and Kumi’s visit to her brother. The two went there hoping to receive his blessing and become a couple in his eyes. Things got a little more complicated, however, and before they knew the furniture had flown out of Ryo’s house, it was Kumi who threw the furniture.
On the contrary, this will calm Ryo a bit and see that Ippo is a better fit for Kumi than before. Although, now Ippo has to deal with Kumi, who is angry and doesn’t want to talk to both of them after last night’s incident. In her view, Ippo didn’t take her side when the situation turned around, and he should have supported her instead of her brother in the argument.
