Without watching season 1 and not realize it till the end of the first episode/part way into the season? Just reminded because I'm rewatching Prince of Tennis, and the second season (they're called OVAs but it's really nationals) just brought up why I started watching it in the first place. Seeing all the different special moves they pull off, then realize that they weren't always this awesome and came out of 178 episodes of training and character development. The spoilers get you though, pretty much half the plot of Hajime no Ippo was given to me by the first episode of season two, which was mostly a recap and a lead in.
