The poems of Shuji Terayama are quoted during the play. "A person is born as a heartless body and becomes a perfect corpse." I think this work was the manifestation of this poem. In that sense, this work was genuine "Ashita no Joe".
One year from the last part of the first part. However, the world worsens rather than improves. New and Kenji in this obstructive world, is the same as two people burn their lives. However, I think the theme was clearer than this one. It is obvious from the beginning, and an eye on the lane is designed from the dialogue to be called next. For the reversal of horse racing, "he is an accountant"! In other words, do not give up fighting adversity. In this work, "The people who give up fighting". Mr. Liu Shi, who was a new big brother next, is a representative person. He gives up giving up the fight because he is unlucky in the lower half and forgives Yuji. But this is a feeling similar to resignation, the new order will release Liu Shi. This work is getting darker. Loner deaths are accumulated, including facilities for the elderly.
How can we live in a world so obstructive and hopeless? There is no choice but to fight. And one of them is boxing. I think the last boxing superimposes the demonstration march is one of them. In this work, the demonstration march was described as "just to resist society". This  is completely opposite to what Keiji said at the suicide prevention  festival in the first part, "Suicide is the last resistance of the  weak."
