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 216

Chinese history's great history. Here's it's appearance to the world.
Chapter 216 - Situation of grave danger

Despite his size such fast footwork. Just what one would expect from a world champion. How will Retsu respond?

Coach: Can he move against that?

Retsu: hmpt.

Height 237cm
Weight 151 kilos

Being so big, he uses that flowing footwork.

If that's how it is ...

Champ: !?
Coach: !!

Coach: Ah! You idiot!

Audience: He lowered his waist in the corner. Does he plan to throw the fight.

Champ: With me as your opponent you went into the corner ... In boxing that's the most dangerous place to be. Didn't think you'd go there by yourself.

Champ: Well I'm sure you understand what's going to happen from here on out.

Judge: Hey, what's the problem. Stand and Fight! Stand up and fight!

Retsu: Whats the meaning of you stepping in. I'm not sitting down.

I'm only lowering my hips, I'm still standing though.

Retsu: Anyway I don't like the idea of "fighting" this person. I have no intention of "fighting" with Valev. I have no intention of hitting him or being hit.

Judge: Do you plan to forfeit without letting out one jab?

Retsu: I will suppress him, without letting one jab fly.

Champ: Move aside Mr. Mirusu.

Champ: If you don't move I won't be able to reign over him.

Judge: OK!

Champ: Fufu ....

The giant Valev was practically giddy. The meeting of a mysterious fighting style he could have never imagined ...

... and probably, the confidence of surpassing it without fail.

Valev: !? !? !?

Valev: !

Valev: !? !?

(soniku: LOL at this scene. Love that clueless expression.)

Retsu: Musunkei ...
(Retsu' trademark point blank punch)

The last thing Valev saw ... was one camera man.

Headline! Valev's head disappears!

The speed of that punch which even the camera couldn't capture!! Valev has his head spun so fast it looks as if his head disappears! Demon Fist Retsu Kaioh conquers the giant!



  2. Hahahaha MY GOD that was brilliant!!! Thanks so much btw for doing all these translations!!!!!

  3. If you also read Hajime no Ippo, then you probably know what Retsu did :-) .

  4. ....Stupid newspaper
    They call Retsu the "Haymaker Dragon" but he didn't throw a Haymaker punch.

    from Wikipedia:
    Haymaker - A punch in which the arm is whipped sideways from the shoulder joint with minimal elbow bend. The name is derived from the motion, which mimics the action of manually cutting hay by swinging a scythe

  5. Wow judge mills (mirusu) now -_- ... ill allow it
