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!

Son of Ogre 215

The sleeping tiger, he begins his fight with the boxing world.

Chapter 215 - Baffling

With many escorts and his lion heart trainer, Retsu Kaio makes his way up the Las Vegas ring.

Announcer: Chinese Dragon! Kaioh! Chinese Kung Fu

Retsu was disturbed. This is the first time he's experienced this kind of entrance to a fight. incomprehensible.

Just Baffling, inexplicable, just simply incomprehensible

Champ: Arg!


Why is this man pretending to be livid?

Even if it is to light fire to the fight, to go as far as acting angry?

Why is there a need to go so far?

Gaiza: It's showtime!

Gaiza: As of now the great nation of China has now bared it's fangs to the world.

Retsu: Just a farce ...

Refusing to move by monetary power alone, finally he enters the sports world.

Retsu: All these fancy things that have no relation to strife. Even the audience is going along with it.

He's now trying to show the world that might!

Champ: Jusy try it!

Champ: If you can do it just go ahead and try!

Audience: Yeah! Your the man Warefu!

Retsu: Even that was an act, he kicked knowing full well it wouldn't connect.

Champ: Mister Retsu.

Champ: My personal showtime is now done. From here on its all real.

Champ: I will not be holding my punches.

Coach: Retsu ... Don't die.

Retsu: ... This ...

Coach: ...

Retsu: This footwork with such that big frame.

Retsu: Just as I thought, his strength isn't just indulgent on his size. If that's the case ...

Coach: Eh ..... Ah, you idiot!

The worried Coach. Seeing the Champ's footwork just what did Retsu do!!?


  1. Nice! Thanks for the chapter, can't wait for the next one :)

  2. Thanks for the translation yo

  3. thank you very much soniku. Would you mind sharing with us the current status of this series? how often is this series published and how far has the series progressed? Are playing catch up by trying to translate however many you can as you get your hands on the raw scans, or are you now waiting for newer episodes to be published and then scanned?

  4. Playing catch up? These are pretty recent chapters. I usually try to stay one chapter behind when translating to get a better grasp of what's happening. SoO 216 showed up so I posted 215.

  5. Thank you! I don't know what else to say, just trying to think of something other then, "thank you" to show more gratitude. I say thank you, to a person that holds open a door/elevator for me. saying it on here just doesn't do my thank you justice. But once again it is all I can do. :(

  6. Thanks Soniku

    Here is 217

  7. ah, thanks. just wondering, didn't want to come of as being ungrateful, you rock dude, like hardcore ub3r rox0rz t3h pwn4ge epic ftw.

  8. thanks a lot dude! as usual, a great chapter. i really love this manga.

  9. Thx, can`t wait for the next chapter.

  10. the coach looks more pissed at the end than worried, like retsu tripped the guy or something... heheh his size may not be indulgent on his size, but his fall would be

  11. Probably Retsu put up a boxing stance to piss everybody up :O

  12. Or that he crouched in the corner waiting to counter Valuev.

  13. i do hope retsu destroys the guy... i mean, im not trying to deride boxing within the baki universe, im sure the creative force behind baki will give boxing the same dues they give other martial arts.. but still,this is retsu man! retsu is... fricking retsu! plus, from what i can gage, this boxer could MAYBE last 5 minutes against kid baki from the end of the first series...MAYBE (i say this given the list of all the oponents baki faced and the feats they were all capable of). Heck retsu from maximum tournament could destroy this guy in a blink of an eye!

  14. You forget they are most probably fighting under boxing rules.

  15. I think Retsu will fight without any stance.

  16. <--chapter 218 <--chapter 219

  17. 5 min against kid Baki? Serious? Kid Baki sliced a heavy bag in half with his bear hand and told Yuri Boxing was an incomplete art. Itagaki, despite having boxed himself, has already derided it lol
