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 213

Not losing the the rain... Not losing the the wind... and not losing to the father!

Chapter 213 - Maneuver

A character from the martial arts world - Retsu, How will the boxing world accept him!!?

Gaiza: Kaioh Retsu!!

Gaiza: I thank you for your act of friendship.

Gaiza: I tried to promote you with everything I had but ... all I got was the cold shoulder.

Gaiza: If you hadn't step in when you did ... I would have been beaten to the floor by now.

Gaiza: I thank you from my heart.

Gaiza: Heee ...

Champ: What is the meaning of this Gaiza. This is not your ring. This is my ring.

Booing ...

More Booing ...

Champ: As you heard. If you don't want to get thrown out leave the ring now.

Gaiza: You say the strangest things.

Gaiza: Being a former world champion, and even now a superstar. Andre Warefu

Gaiza: Everyone here would surely humble within your presence.

Gaiza: With the exception of this man.

Gaiza: This man came here to humiliate you. More so, not just you alone. He came here to trample Boxing itself.

Champ: Gaiza ...

Champ: This small man, with that body. Just how will he do this ....?

Retsu: In Japan they have this saying. Big head, little wit.

Retsu: You American's can't possibly understand. You only think of the body as a lump of muscle.

Retsu: You will never grasp the Martial arts created under 4000 years of influence.

Champ: Hahaha, Mister Retsu there is not a pro wrestling ring.

Champ: Cheap taunt and provocations won't get you anywhere.

Gaiza: Retsu. I've made a stage to display your power.

Gaiza: I'm sure to you it's a stupid performance with no meaning but ... doing these will be the best way for the Americans to understand. Show them.

With one powerful blow.

Retsu: Mister Gaiza.

Retsu: Weren't you an official promoter? Breaking something like this ... just who will be pleased?

Gaiza: ... what?

Retsu: There's something way better.

Retsu: The biggest thing here. The toughest thing. That has the most meaning in breaking apart.

Gaiza: ... Retsu ...

Cheering ...

Champ: My career in hitting people starting from Karate.

Champ: We can fight with bare fists if you'd like, Mister Retsu.

Audience: Do it! Break him in two!

Audience: It didn't split into two ... It turned to sand. The block turned to sand ...

Gaiza: Whoa ... these means war.

Gaiza: The Dragon vs The Gorilla.

Gaiza: The worlds greatest, most exciting Exhibition match.

Giant vs Martial Arts. Retsu who challenges Boxing history. What will become of this match!?


  1. Thank you very much soniku :worship: :worship:

  2. Hey Sonikku, thanks again, question about the first page, does that t-shirt come with those who order the RDF Baki? As I'm ordering the bloody yellow version through, and was curious if we got the shirt as well.

  3. I love this crazy manga. THX for translating.

  4. thank you for scanning and translating this for us. youre the only place online where people all around the world come to read baki. thank you so much

  5. Thank you for translating this great manga. Andre Warefu=Nicolai Valuev?

  6. Andre Warefu is DEFINITELY Nikolai Valuev. Both boxers, both look to be 7 feet 2...both have hairy upper bodies and both look alot like.

    First Iwan McGregor = Mike Tyson, Then Manny Pacquiao = Mani Akio and now Andre Warefu = Nikolai Valuev, who next? Wladimir Klitschko? lol

  7. i hope not... klitschko is a bitch.. he does not deserve to be the champ.. it's sad that he is the best heavyweight in that division.. smh
