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 225

Chiharu falls to Baki's serious blows. Just what is Hanayama's intentions in sending Chiharu to fight Baki ...?



Chapter 225 - Glove



Losing his consciousness die to Baki's high speed combo, Chiharu's powerless fist connects with Baki's face ...

Witness: That's what I've been saying, he didn't put up a fight ...



Witness: He just stood there glaring at him and took the ninja boys straight punch.

Why did the ninja fall ...!? I don't know.



Baki: Mr. Chiharu ... why ...? Why now ... would you fight with me ...?



Hanayama: Have a fight with Baki. It's because it's you that it's good ...





Retsu: I'm sure I connected ...

A right vertical strike ... I'm sure it was effective ....



Retsu: I took a hit at the same moment, probably a hook from the left.

What a blunder ....

The Glove ....



During my days of training, I've used them many times ...

This is the first time I've felt such weight and sharply penetrating from it ...

In the case of a base first, because it's hard and pointed it didn't give off that effect ...



Because the glove itself distributes more weight, the damage to the brain done clearly surpasses that of a bare fist.

It's as if a giant grabbed one's head and give a a great shake resulting in massive shock.

This damaging sensation ... It wasn't in Baki's fist ...



Nor was it in Pickle's fist.

The Glove ... The Glove in itself ....

The tool that is the glove ...

... Tool ...



That ... Originality ...

Referee: 4, 5, 6 ...

Coach: Retsu ...



Coach: 7, 8 ...

Retsu: I see ...

Coach: OK!!??

Retsu: So that's how it is ...

The strength within first class boxer's ...



Coach: Fight!

Retsu: It ... lays within the tool that is a glove. It's measured by how it's used.



By relaxing the muscles the glove's weight is amplified. A strong strike.

Free fighting is the same, in using the glove as a weapon.

Retsu: What a failure, I'm only realizing this now.



Boxing starts out bare handed, for it to turn into a safe and full sport ... in 1865 Glove's were put into use.

From that time 150 years have passed ...



Because it has been the object of great study ... It has been turned into a weapon!!!



Retsu: I've made an error in judgement ...

That round and soft fist. That nice feeling to it ...

I've misjudged it's brutal nature ...



Retsu:

However ... What will I do about it ...?

Even though I've had my eyes opened and realized all this ...

This ...



Retsu: What will I do about this damage!!!

The world begins to warp around him ... Against this untalented, delicious opponent ... Retsu Kaioh meets his end here ...!!?

Son of Ogre 224

Having overcome many battles, he ventures on to the next one.



Chapter 224 - Reason to Fight.



Chiharu suddenly recieves a hard straight. With Baki dwelling on reasoning the fight has started!!

Witness: I was too careless ...

"A normal young man" ....

That was only my first impression.



Witness: If you look deeper and observe closely ...

His neck ... and shoulders aren't ordinary at all. They're well developed.

Those arms that shown from his shirt, they were surprisingly thick ...

They well enough showed their presence.



If you look closer at them you'll see the consequences of many battles. Countless scars were carved into them.

Scars reaching even to the hand as if creating a decoration ...

I could imagine those old scars ... probably cover his whole body ...



Witness:

If that was the case just what was that young man ...

This is no longer just some mere athlete ....



Chiharu: Are ....? Are, Are, Are ....?



Chiharu: For A legendary warrior ... The world's strongest young man ... that was pretty soft ...

Baki: Mr. Chiharu.

That was the end ...

Mr. Chiharu started this, but I counter attacked in a way not to hurt you.



Baki: There won't be a next time.

Chiharu: Just who ... wanted ...





Chiharu: ... for you to hold back !!!





Chiharu: Ahh ...



Strong .... Just like I thought ...

He's the real thing ...



Just ...

How much ...



The gap in strength between us ...

I can't even begin to grasp it ...









Witness: Yes there is no mistake ...



Witness: I've seen it with my own eyes. The third time the ninja boy attacked, the normal looking boy just took the punch without struggling ....

Our witness just couldn't see it ...
Baki's shocking 4 hit combo!!
The unconscious Chiharu hits Baki's jaw with a powerless fist!!

Son of Ogre 223

Seeking out what's beyond strength ...



Chapter 223 - Reason to Fight.



That which was carved into his back. A 3 headed Dragon. This refects this man's resolve!

That what appeared was ...

A dragon with 3 heads.





Chiharu: I apologize for the sudden challenge.



Baki: .... why ..?

Chiharu: A reason ...? Is that needed ...?



Baki: No ... well that ...



Baki: Why is Mr.Shiba doing this. By his own will? Just who's orders ...?

No matter how you look at it, this is just way too sudden ....



Well of course ... to accept without asking anything would be cool. I'm sure that would be cool but. Between Shiba and I ...



There is just no reason to fight ... !!!



It's as if he ran into an invisible wall. The Ninja flew back 5 meters.





Hanayama: Have a fight with Baki.

Chiharu: M ... Me ..!?



Chiharu: W ... Why .. Someone like me ...

Hanayama: Since when does Shiba Chiharu need a reason ...?



Retsu: This ....



Retsu: Just what is this? This blow ...!?

Retsu: I can see it ...



I can clearly see every attack ...

I'm negating all his attacks ...



Retsu: However my bodies insides ...

My inner organs ...

Their having damage carved into them ...



Retsu:

Such a round thing ...

You can even feel kindness from inside that soft glove.

That muscle pressure. Within those muscles ...



It's almost like theirs something sharp inside.



Defeat ...

Retsu takes a blow to the chin but returns the favor. What will this mean for the fight. What will happen to the unlucky Shiba who challenged Baki?
