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 214

Just aiming for the sharp things!

Chapter 214 - Fighting Experience.

Giant vs Martial Artist. Just where will this lead?

Reporter: Mister Retsu. What are you accomplishments and career as a fighter.

Retsu: I should have explained this before ...

Retsu: Entering Byakku Rinji at age 4. From then on the days of training and practice.

Reporter: What is your record?

Retsu: These were all unrecognized matches. All of the matches were never recorded.

Reporter: Then within those matches what are you win losses?

Retsu: I've never counted them. The matches I've won, nor the ones I've lost.

Reporter: Under what rules?

Retsu: Rules ...?

Reporter: These weren't under boxing rules right?

Retsu: Frankly, there were all matches to compare strength.

Reporter: MMA's meet and throw down rules, right?

Retsu: Throw down ...?

Retsu: I have no experience with matches under rules. Just who is the stronger one.

Reporter: I know it's insulting to ask but your leg ...

Retsu: I've lost this leg in a match with a friend.

Retsu: These things happen, fighting matches come with that risk.

Reporter: I'll ask Mr Gaiza, does this match has any rules?

Gaiza: 2 Man take their 2 fists and compare their strength. That is the rule.

Reporter: So that doesn't make this boxing ...?

Gaiza: Whatever you want to call it, you guys decide. It's just an Exhibition match.

Reporter: Even if you say it's just Exhibition, the opponent is a world champion.

Gaiza: All I do is promote matches. I line them up and say "If you want to, have at it"

Gaiza: Futhermore, "There two monsters are going to fight, if you want to see, go ahead"

Coach: Haha. Your match is a fight against a world champ. Just what one would expect from you Retsu.

Coach: It's only your debut and ...

Coach: You're looking down on us ...

Retsu: I'm doing no such thing.

Coach: You're looking down the nose at Boxing.

Coach: Your career in only two sparring matches.

Coach: Are you trying to act like a world champion?

Coach: This is a good opportunity.

Coach: If you can see it, dodge ...

Coach: ... it!

Coach: Well, Bruce Lee? Can't you see this punch from a boxer that's been retired for 10 years?

Coach: A Boxer's Jab is that fast!

Coach: If you fight him you will get killed!

Coach: Refuse that match. That's the least amount of courtesy you can show the champion.

Coach: We have no business in Las Vegas anymore. By tomorrow we're heading back. Whatever Gaiza says anything or not.

Coach: He's just a promoter anyway.

Coach: eh? Eh!!?

Retsu: I'm sorry, I dislocated it by force of habit.

Coach: You ... You saw it?

Retsu: I had no intention of dodging it.

Retsu: Mister Hanada, you've put yourself in the boxing world for so long. You're anger for me is well deserved.

Retsu: That punch was the punishment for hurting you.

Retsu: However, For me, what Martial Arts is to me.

Retsu: Please try to understand.

Coach: ....... Well it is an Exhibition. Let's stay for a little longer.

Retsu: Many Thanks.

With his strong hearted trainer with him, Retsu raising the curtains at America's Boxing World!!

  10. Uh guys, did you hear about manga websites being shut down, like onemanga and mangafox?

    What will happen to this?

  11. Nobody cares about Baki so we should be alright lol jkjk

  12. Only big scanlation groups will really have problems with the new offence of the manga publisher. There are just too many groups so there is no way that they could close down all of them. Their target will mostly be big sites like onemanga and 1000manga. Mangafox won't shut down (for now).

  13. I want morE! And translate 199, 215 plz ^^

  14. yeah do it fast sonikku, that's why we are paying for!!

  15. Hmmm? Since when can we make demands here?

    OMG you are so wise !!! Why didnt you said it earlier, mr smart boy... ? I can understand all chapters in jap well, but still want to read proper translation. 216 out btw.

  18. Haven't forgotten you guys. I'll put up a translation some thing in the future.

  19. Wow!! Didn't see that coming from Retsu. I mean especially getting punched, I kinda doubted Itagaki sure knows how to surprise. Everything is unexpected and informative and hella entertainment. That's what I love about this manga. Wish they did this into anime too.
