However, fans are sure that there will certainly be a continuation, because the end in the life of Joe-Nomad has not yet been set. As of February 2023, there is no information about the work on the season 3.
Megalobox is a combination of sports and new technologies. Megalobox is gaining popularity at a breakneck pace. Boxing now looks different: it has become more spectacular, which is why money from the audience literally flows in a stream. “Megalonia” is a created megalobox tournament where the best of the best meet. Only four fighters who have proven their superiority and strength over the other participants in the tournament will qualify for the final.
An unknown guy is endowed by nature with fantastic strength, he earns his living by participating in clandestine battles. At the same time, his trainer completely controls each fight: Gansaku Nanbu dictates how to act and when to be defeated. The soul and body of the guy is eager for a fair fight, but the audience needs a show that pays well for. But the fateful meeting of the protagonist with Yukiko Shirato and her devoted bodyguard Yuri changed everything. Welcome to the Megalonia tournament, Joe!
After a brilliant victory in the tournament, a lot has changed. Nomad did not need fame, he disappeared from sight for a long 7 years. But when he returns, he will understand what he wants this time. The whole main battle is still ahead!..
