It all starts with the many trails and hardships of a young boy. At first glance he seems like any other young man trying to make his way through society, but he has an odd hobby. He seeks out strength more than anyone else! Six floors under the Tokyo Dome exists an frightening place. A literal "sacred ground" for those who desire power! A place that exists for the sole reason of deciding the world's strongest man! This is about non other that Grappler Hanma Baki!

Chapter 193 - Imagination.
Just wait ...
There is nothing but empty space, but Baki has a feeling of standing infront of an enemy.
Just wait ...
Within this dark room ...
in these walls ...
That which is not really there. Just wait for it to appear.
Without moving a muscle. Such sweat...
That which doesn't exist.
But felt is if it's really there.
This young man's prodigious lies within his power of imagination.
Baki: No good ...
Baki: This isn't enough.
Baki: More ...
Even stronger ... Even faster ... Even scarier ... Even more cunning ...
What makes this young man unique is ...
Baki: This still isn't enough ...
Lays within his strictness.
Compared to someone who imagines someone convenient.
Using techniques to wouldn't work in a real bout.
A boxer who you can hit easily.
Such a type would only retreat.
"Ding Ding Ding" "There was a japanese man like this?"
But he wants stronger then the real thing.
It comes again!
The third tremor!
Put on the TV!
Put on the news.
That was ... greater than I imagined.
Tokugawa: Eh... Ehh... Eh!!?
Yujiro: Don't be so surprised.
Yujiro: I was just thinking that you should take a physical examination.
Chapter 192 - Country of Might.
Central Office of Citizenship.(?)
Japan's world's strongest man story is told here.
Yukio: Oooh ...
Ichirou: This man.
Ichirou: Here's my personal speculation.
Ichirou: Hanma Yujiro otherwise known as "Ogre", this is his most recent appearance.
Weight: 120kilo's at the least.
Ichirou: This is the appearance of the man proclaimed as "The World's Strongest Creature".
Oosawa Ichirou - Head of Office.
Cabinet of the Prime Minister Hatoyama Yukoi
Yukio: What a dreadful face ... Such a demonic look ...
Ichirou: "Demonic Look"?
Ichirou: More like he's a real Demon.
Yukio: Are you a fan of his?
Ichirou: It seems you don't understand me. I'll explain myself.
Ichirou: The person that is Hanma Yujiro is this world's one and only Brute Strength Country.
Yukio: Brute ...??
Ichirou: With one flex of his arm, he can make anything reality.
Ichirou: He's the object of aspiration for every man.
Ichirou: Kitagawa-sensei's words about America's Amity with him.
Ichirou: Everything is the truth.
Yukio: About that, how about sniping.
Yukio: Far away with a rifle. If you pick him off like that he'll die.
Ichirou: That's impossible.
Ichirou: That would mean making enemies of America who just allied themselves with him.
Ichirou: Then America itself couldn't possible snipe him ...
Ichirou: That won't happen.
Ichirou: Because the whole world is in cahoots with the Ogre.
Ichirou: Hanma Yujiro right now, is the world's strongest weapon.
Ichirou: By making him your ally, a country gains a place as a world superpower.
Ichirou: Such an important person. Just what country what aim to kill him?
Yukio: You're saying he's more powerful than a nuke.
Ichirou: Even if someone were to aim to attack him with a nuke.
Ichirou: Would you target him when he's living in a city? Where would you aim for him?
Ichirou: Unless he's traveling himself through the Sahara desert would that option be reasonable.
Ichirou: No choice but to fold.
Ichirou: Souri you asked me before.
Ichirou: If I was a fan of his.
Yukio: That's what it looks like to me.
Ichirou: Whether is be a state official, manga writer, pianist, rock star, or an army man.
Ichirou: What if they were ... born with the power Yujiro has.
Ichirou: All of them would want to make this might reality.
Ichirou: All of them would walk down the Ogre's path.
Yukio: In other words, including us politicians.
Yukio: All business is just a replacement for brute strength?
Ichirou: Like I said, he's the world's only Brute Strength Country.
Yukio: No way.
Yukio: Something this stupid ...
Yukio: For something so unreasonable to pass ...
Ichirou: He's untouchable.
Ichirou: Just knowing about it you can't do anything. Even you will have to fold here.
Ichirou: A cabinet member of the prime minister, it's probably better for you to not know.
Yukio: Then why did you tell me all this?
Ichirou: The direction of the wind has changed.
Ichirou: Just a little.
It's coming ...
They are parent and child ...
Just for a little while
The Mantis, Oliva, and Pickle. Having overcome these ordeals he once again stands before his father.

The climax approaches.
Chapter 191 - And now ...
A grand Japanese mansion placed right in the center of the city. Their lives a certain "strong" man who reins above the modern world.
Yukio: You truly look to be healthy. I am filled with joy.
Tokugawa: You're being too upright, raise your head.
Cabinet of the Prime Minister Hatoyama Yukio
Tokugawa: Have you lost weight?
Yukio: Um, no.
Yukio: You're words are wasted on me. I am eating quite well.
Tokugawa: Not long has passed since you have taken office.
Tokugawa: I'm sure you are full of anxiety and worry.
Yukio: It's responsibility is heavy on me. Sometimes I have regrets ...
Tokugawa: Hoho ... To complain so quickly ...
Yukio: I'm so sorry!
Tokugawa: Anyway Hatoyama.
Tokugawa: That heavy burden that is the source of your worries.
How many kilos will it take to lighten the load?
Tokugawa: You're slow of the uptake.
Tokugawa: Money, my boy ...
Tokugawa: Isn't measured in Yen but by Kilo's.
Yukio: Kilo's, sir?
Yokugawa: There is 300 kilo's there. In Yen is should 3,000,000,000.
Tokugawa: Take it home with you with a truck.
Tokugawa: The man I've recognized, Hatoyama Yukio. There is something I wish of you.
Yukio: Let us talk.
?: This is nonsense.
Yukio: A fight between father and son?
Yukio: You want country consent for this?
Yukio: It looks you want to say some Kitazawa-sensei
Minister of Defense - Kitazawa Toshio
Kitazawa: This ...
Kitazawa: I knew about this because of my position, but I was late in informing you about that person's existence.
Yukio: Position? You know about this Hanma Yujiro?
Yukio: What is he exactly?
Kitazawa: Just... How should I explain this?
Kitazawa: Let's just say he's enormous, he's strong. Not in a standard way.
Yukio: Strong? Like he's wealthy? Has a strong political standing?
Yukio: A financial giant? Or part of some famous family?
Kitazawa: Brute strength. Enough to strong arm us.
Yukio: Like this? Arm strength?
Kitazawa: That's right. That physical power.
Yukio: Some kind of gangster?
Yukio: That's one character trait I suppose.
Yukio: I don't understand at all.
Yukio: Japan has a constitutional government.
?: Not matter how much brute strength that man has. The moment the police makes a move it's over.
Kitazawa: It wouldn't be over.
Yukio: What do you mean??
Kitagawa: The official residence of Nakasone-sensei the cabinet holder.
Kitagawa: Has been attacked by Hanma Yujiro before.
Yukio: ...His house...?
Yukio: What happened to the security? Was there an covert intruder?
Kitagawa: There was actually a phone call declaring his attack.
Kitagawa: 100 officers wearing full equipment were deployed at the scene.
Yukio: Yes ... and!!?
Kitagawa: They were practically sent flying and with such ease.
Yukio: That's impossible. What kind of magic was used?
Yukio: Did you know about this Kiwabata-sensei?
Head of Education - Kawabata Tatsumi.
Kawabata: I've only heard small rumors.
Kitagawa: Nakasone-sensei invoked a gag law concerning this. Trying to protect public order.
Yukio: Public Order?
Kitagawa: One's man brute strength succeeded in attacking a country's high official.
Kitagawa: You who stand at the top of our education system. As the Minister of Education what's your opinion on this?
Kawabata: Something like this shouldn't be allowed to be known.
Kawabata: The bad influence it will have our young. It would be immeasurable.
Yukio: I see, it's true that would only like to more participants in violence.
Yukio: However in response to this Kitazawa-sensei.
Yukio: Our country has the strength of military power.
Kitagawa: Hatoyama Souri, now that you know of Hanma Yujiro.
Kitagawa: I want to tell you something very important.
Kitagawa: The country of America,
Kitagawa: In concern to Hanma Yujiro ...
A Contract of Amity!!?
The story told by the people who make a country. The last form of a strong country...
