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 212
Chapter 212 - Pretentious display
Las Vegas, the entertainment area filled with lust and desire. A man not matching this environment sets foot here.
Hotel Ceasars Palace.
Gaiza: Since we've arrived at Vegas, you haven't said one word.
Gaiza: Kaioh Retsu, maybe ... this room a prepared. The Special Suite isn't to your liking?
Retsu: I was just thinking about it. This city that we've rushed off to. Just what is it that I don't like about it.
Gaiza: As I thought, isn't to your liking?
Retsu: I've come to a conclusion.
Gaiza: Well I can imagine what you're thinking.
Retsu: There is nothing real in this city.
Retsu: Not one thing here is original.
Retsu: In the middle of this desert which grass doesn't even grow. This many human made objects. Created by passion and labor, nothing is forbidden here.
Retsu: However, everything here is fake.
Retsu: Plants that cannot thrive in these conditions. Extravagant Structures.
Retsu: Fake Goddess, Fake Tower, Fake Arches, Fake Sphinxes, Fake Pyramids.
Gaiza: All the facsimiles are first class.
Gaiza: Kaioh Retsu, whether it's real of fake it serves it's purpose.
Gaiza: Within this world Retsu Kaioh, there are a lot of 3rd rate "real" things out there.
Gaiza: Actually those 3rd rate things probably outnumber everything.
Gaiza: A facsimile that's just an conventional as the real thing. Can you say "I've never encountered that."?
Coach: Hey now.
Retsu: I see, it's probably just as Gaiza says.
Retsu: Even within our Chinese martial arts there are imitations taken from us. Conventional as it is, it's a real martial art that was mischievously made to fruition.
(soniku: Wonder if he's talking about Karate?)
Gaiza: This fake city .... Welcome to Las Vegas.
Coach: Hey, should you be drinking?
Retsu: If I'm going to drink this I'm not going up into the ring.
Gaiza: If that happens show me your drunken fist.
Coach: Amazing. Of course I knew he was a former Champion ... but when seeing the real thing it sure surpassing your expectations.
Retsu: What's his size?
Gaiza: Height 237cm, Weight 151kg
Coach: He went up there!
Gaiza: Ladies and Gentlemen, everyone ....
Gaiza: Since the enactment of the Queensberry rules 150 years has passed. Now is a time of grave danger for modern boxing. A powerful enemy has appeared.
Gaiza: With 4001 years of Chinese Martial Art history, a Dragon has finally appeared.
Coach: He followed him up there ...
Gaiza: I thank you for your friendship.
Feeling he's risen up into the boxing ring!! How will Retsu face this!!?
