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!

Son of Ogre 211

Roaring Thunder, a single warrior begins to move.

Chapter 211 - Ogre Fireworks.

Beautiful fireworks that scatter across the sky. As if to signal the start of something grand.

At this night, a festive custom is held. A fireworks festival.
The clouds are high, and the conditions of favorable.

The miracle ...

The festival was over without any incidents.
The onlookers filled the streets.

... happened then.

Reporter: Please look it this image.

This brozne statue that looks down upon us, it struck by lightning.
The place is the onlookers facility during the fireworks festival.

In the spectators area was about 7000 people within the area.
Just above them was running 10million volts of electricity.

In spite of this no one was hurt. Why is this?

Please look at once more at this image.

Now this is a shocking image.

The lighting that fell upon the bronze statue has amazingly ...

... managed to pass onto a civilian passing by.

Tokyo University attendee - Miyashita Tsutomu

Reporter: Miyashita-Sensei, please explain.

Miyashita: This is only just a guess since I've never seen anything like it before.

Miyashita: But one things for sure, because of this one man, the 7000 people ontop the bridge were saved.

Repoter: After getting struck this man ... just walked away as if nothing happened.

Reporter: This is a enlarged image.

Being able to just see the skull ... This expression looks like anger ...?

Reporter: Sensei, is this even possible?

Miyashita: The fact that he walked away as if nothing happened or the angry skull?

Reporter: Both of these.

Miyashita: Both of these are impossible.

Miyashita: Lightning can carry 1000000000 Volts. The human body doesn't stand a chance.

Miyashita: This man's body must be pretty unique.

Reporter: Unique?

Miyashita: For example ...The red cell blood ratio would be abnormally high. A body constitution close to metal.

Miyashita: Its a trait that's found in first rate olympic athletes.

Reporter: Because he his build was close to metal he was shocked ...?

Miyashita: Well, that's one inference.

Reporter: So because his bodies makeup is close to metal, he is fine just being shocked ...?

Miyashita: No, not at all. There's no way it's just fine.

There isn't a body that can withstand such voltage.

Reporter: Then ... why ...?

Miyashita: ....

It must be an amazingly strong person!!? Anyway, an incredibly strong individual ...? haha ...

House of Tokugawa:

Tokugawa: Hmpt. This is Tokyo University's representative? This is a joke.

Tokugawa: He's missing the essential information.

Tokugawa: The properties that lightning has and it's behavior.

Tokugawa: For example lighting hits a plane, but the passengers are safe and sound.

Tokugawa: That's because there are many safety devices set upon several spots on the plane. In other words the falling lightning will leave through the most sharp pointed area.

Tokugawa: That bridge where people and cars are on. Then that prank playing lightning strikes ...

Tokugawa: Unfortunately it was searching for a place to discharge. Searching for the sharpest place ... searching ... like this ...

It searches for the most well honed sharp existence.

Tokugawa: Finally it's has been found, the sharpest most pointed forged existence.

Tokugawa: Hmpt, just as one would expect. There's no better choice than that.


  1. My explantation for this to happen is that Ogre is a cyborg from the future.

  2. its missing a lot of translations, u only translated a few pages but regardless thank youu so much

  3. Now isnt that shocking :p

    Hmmm....wondering how the rest of the page ends but half a page is better than nothing :D Thanks

  4. Great chapter, thanks for the translation as always.

  5. to be honest, I don't think we'll see any baki vs yuujiro action this year either, it'll be around 2-3 years morew before this happens...

    sonniku, just take your time.

  6. The person above is probably right... I am guessing a few more chapters on how strong the fighters have become... then the massive tournament probably taking up 100 to 150 chapters, then in the end something small about that toku grandpa dieing...... Probably a lot of reviews as well, then the fight we have all been waiting for :p yes this could sure take a while, but let's be honest no one would want this serie to end do they? I personally enjoy a chapter every now and then, even if it has hardly any to do with the storyline. :D

  7. You guys thing Baki's g will ever come back to him...

  8. I hope Ogre wins.

  9. Soniku, will there be chapters released this summer and if so are you translating them? Just curious to know as some manga have a summer break :D

  10. Sonikku, if you could make me a small favor.
    tell tophunter that, if he wants to start a subscription to shonen champion yearly, paying 400 euros (almost 500.00) is craziness, I can get him 42 issues for 178.00 (plus my own 60.00 yearly fee) and I get them up to three series scanned weekly, I know cause they want to offer the scans to you eventually, and tophunter knows I been in the business as long as he knows me.

    so if you could post this on ritual scanforge please

    before they end up paying triple of what it is.

  11. and by the way, I have all the tv show where the baki special is (Ame-talk chapter date 16th)
    if you translate it, I'll post it :)

  12. Man fuck yall white fang project dudes. Y'all just wanna try to make profit since dude is translating for free. Why y'all charging people anyway y'all don't make them.

    Sonikku fuck these guys man.

  13. Opinions are like assholes :p we all got one and they all stink :p

    Now on a more serious note, without ichido and soniku I very much doubt this manga would be very alive to be honest. Sure ichido chooses to charge people for reading chapters, but that is solely because he wants to get his expenses covered.
    Personally, I doubt he is making a profit though, when you look at all the time spent on the manga and take everything into account, it would be more profitable to get a paper route.
    I see the reason why people get anger at them (because they scanlate manga exclusively duh), but really, I doubt we would have as much chapters scanlated as we did, as we all started reading this manga with the WFP scanlations.
    Eventually, WFP will publish or leak again and future generations (or me re reading this manga in about 5 years) will be entertained as well.
    Ah well but that's just my 2 cents.
    I don't feel like hating on someone when they are trying their best for a manga. And honestly, I am glad Soniku decided to do this, as I have no option to pay anyone or anything those amounts of money.

    So I just got to say, Soniku and Ichido keep up the good work!

    PS: I doubt the anime special will be any good, guessing just a talk with the author and maybe a few storylines clarified or we get some insight on who the people in the story are based on (if you are into martial arts I am sure you have assumptions of your own). But I'd like to see it anyway:D Maybe they'll through in some new anime fight or launch baki the grappler season 3. Ah well if anyone can get their hands on any material, could you please post it here? I'd be very grateful

  14. I'm not giving my personal paypal info to some random guy like Ichido on the internet who illegaly steals copyrighted books to translate them.

    Oh and you can't even join even if you wanted,
    because WFP has "limited registration" so you have to wait for 6 months .... Forget that, I would rather read it for free and at a time of my convenience.

  15. then do so, don't come crying here, I don't think Ichido even got to ask you any info at all.

    these days he's not even answering emails, he just keep saying "Until december"

    I wish I had a link to pay and join...

  16. baki 213 RAW

  17. Raw Chap 200
    Raw chap 201
    Raw chap 212

  18. Sorry for the delay, I've caught this bad ear infection and been out of the game lately. Not 100% but I'm starting to feel a little better. Expect translation when I recover.

    God, I hate being sick.

  19. Get well soon ! Ear infections are annoyingly painful.

  20. well you don't use ur ear to type us translations lol! J/k XDD Get better soon, we are all giddy with anticipation to find out the mystery of the evil skull of Yujiro!

  21. Well Chapter 200 is translated, expect 201 after some more eventually.

  22. somehow his clothing didn't burn off

  23. So now a completely hypothetical question ...who is stronger Akuma or Yujiro? Akuma has been said to have destroyed Islands and even punched off a meteor, not to mention withstanding a lava flow. All this I came to know abt recently in some forum. And I thought Yujiro was a freak. Anyway the more the manga continues...the more weirder its becoming. I kinda like it and wud like to know what more would Yujiro be capable of.

  24. He is so sharp lightning fall upon him,this manga is fucking poetic
