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!

Chapter 276: Above and above again

__censored__

In response to his father who comes forward .... // His son who takes note of this tries to hit back // the father taking notice of that counters that with his own trigger probe ...

__censored__

Yujiro: A decides to launch an attack // In response to this // B takes notice of this 0.5 seconds early and counters // A takes immediate notice of this ambush // and ambushes the ambush // Furthermore sensing A's new trigger B ....

__censored__

Trigger: A then does this // then B does this // then ... // Geez ...

__censored__

Yujiro: Just how long will this continue // this endless cycle of ambush strikes // just how long ...

__censored__
__censored__
__censored__
__censored__
__censored__

Baki: Give me a break. // If I could win by just charging at you // I would've done that from the start // Because I cannot ...

__censored__

Baki: I have no choice but this.

__censored__

Baki: No choice but to search // no choice but to probe for a weakness // Accepting my life as the weaker one // I have no choice but to deceive.

__censored__

Baki: This ... // please pardon this.

__censored__

Yujiro: Alright.

Baki: .... eh!?

Yujiro: The 0.5 second // scuffle to steal each others conscious opening.

__censored__

Yujiro: I'll stick with it.

__censored__

.........

Yujiro: Baki, who wants to catch those 0.5 seconds where I am unresponsive // and I who will not let you // As your father I'll take a stand here.

__censored__

Doppo: What!?

Yujiro: Let's go ahead with it // with our maximum

__censored__

Just as the swordsman of the past did // just as past gunmen did ...

__censored__

Aim for the 0.5 second lag where they decide to "draw"

__censored__

Yujiro: I'll put an end to this foolish game.

Baki: T-Try it ... // Go ahead and try!

__censored__

Onlookers: Uwah // wow // it's huge.

__censored__
__censored__

Baki: This has nothing to do with you.

__censored__

Baki: Step aside.

__censored__

"This doesn't involve you so step aside!" // Words coming from his friend // Pickle who comes from the distant past // has no way of understand it.

__censored__

However .... // he did understand one thing // he got scolded ....

__censored__

The rules of nature // Stepping into a one on one duel is not allowed // It was a law that must be followed ....

__censored__

The fangs that he used to tear through ancient foes // was the price for his betrayal // of his friends trust. // It was broken ...

__censored__

Pickle ... // Living for 1 million 4 thousand 550 years .... // studies society

__censored__
__censored__

Baki: I've shown you something awful there ...

Yujiro: The banquet that was just about to end .... // I'm thrilled that it begins again but ...

__censored__

Yujiro: Son! // If your friend didn't show up it would've been over!

Baki: I knew ...

__censored__

Baki: you were coming ...

Yujiro: Let's begin my son ....

__censored__

The first ever "trigger" fight.

Yujiro: I knew you were coming at me like that :)

Chapter 274: To look after

__censored__

Mother: Hohoho // Of course // I'm well aware // that my child // is Hanma Yujiro

__censored__

Mother: Why .... // Did I stop being that child's mother? // Hohoho // Well // what could I say.

__censored__

Mother: He had a uncontainable spirit ... // Much greater to someone like me.

__censored__

Mother: That's right // from the moment he was born // he was able to order me to breast feed him milk.

__censored__

Mother: What a troublesome child .... // well a troublesome individual.

__censored__

Mother: Nobody can beat him // that child of mine. // Humans or animals // all those throughout history. // Yes? // Hohoho // You ask some bad things.

__censored__

Mother: I'm someone who lives in priesthood // I cannot speak of such things // The Buddha and my child // I would not set up such a fight. // That's right ...

Mother: If there is someone who could win .... // Blood .... // Hanma Yujiro'sown blood ....


__censored__

Mother: That would be a condition that must be fulfilled // and // it must be heavy and thick

__censored__




Baki: .....

Yujiro: Uplifted Diaphragm // shallow breathing ....

__censored__

Yujiro: I praise you and then you end up like this ....

"You're useless" // words coming from his parent // something that he can't let pass

__censored__

Even so, he cannot stand // the reality of his body

Yujiro: I did have some fun // Should I strike and end it ...

__censored__

Yujiro: Trample you and end it ...

Baki: !?

Yujiro: !

__censored__

!

__censored__

Pickle: Haruru ...

Onlookers: Ooo // it's him // the living fossil // Pickle!

__censored__

Yujiro: fufu ... // What a night this is.

Baki: Pic ...

Yujiro: You ....

__censored__

Yujiro: I've thought about you on many occasions.

__censored__

Yujiro: Fufu ... // Jealous are you?

Son of Ogre 273

Chapter 273 - Cannot surpass him

__censored__

__censored__

Yujiro: Fufu .... // How pitiful ...

Baki: Let me go stupid!

__censored__

Tokugawa: To his own child .... // how cruel ...

Doppo: Through and through // a sadist ....

Yujiro: You ... // approval seeking child ...

!

__censored__

__censored__

Yujiro: Ffun ....

__censored__

Yujiro: You sure need looking after ....

__censored__

Yujiro: The freedom to kill you // the freedom to love you // to accept either one having nothing to do with your disapproval // the power to control the situation // To take one's will // and to make it reality.

__censored__

That ...

__censored__

is the true form of "strength"

__censored__

"To endure is also strength" // "To win against yourself, is also strength" // Don't loss sight of this!

__censored__

All of these words // there's no need to listen to any of them!!!

onlookers: Amazing // that was like a pro figure skater

__censored__

All those "explanations" are // just needed for those who cannot pass their will

__censored__

In other words // that is the choice for the weak.

Doppo: You're going to hit him seriously, Ogre ...

__censored__

"Strength" in itself // is neither good // nor is it evil

Baki: !

__censored__

Those who are strong // do not endure

__censored__

There's no need to endure anything in the first place.

__censored__

"To win over oneself" // There's also no need for that.

All those "excuses" cloud the purity of strength // impure materials that should be removed!!!


__censored__

It was well passed on to him // his father's will // the child takes this message // as part of his parents education of him

Chapter 272 - To pet

__censored__

Yujiro: Come here // I'll coddle you.

Baki: Wha .. // Did I hear him wrong ...??

onlookers: eh? // just now // did he say pet?

Baki: (I wasn't wrong) // (He really did say that)

__censored__

He would really embrace me.

Baki: (That hand gesture) // rove he won't move) // (The gesture of petting!!)

Yujiro: What are you doing? // Come here.

__censored__

Baki: Wha ... // Just what are you saying ...

Yujiro: It's obvious to I would compliment you.

Baki: How stupid ...

Yujiro: Don't be like that come over ...

Baki: WE'RE FIGHTING!

__censored__

Yujiro: So what!? // Just where would you find a father who doesn't congratulate his son's acomplishments.

Baki: ? ? ? // This ... // This feeling ...

__censored__

From the center of the young boys being // something feeling like pain overcomes him // Something like pain but also far from it.

__censored__

Tears of happiness ....

Doppo: I can't stand to watch.

Tokugawa: How sad ...

__censored__

Receiving compliments from the father was normal // this was one young boy who was far from this logic

__censored__

The child takes this recognition with // excitement // fulfillment // release .... // this child was without any recognition for far too long ...

Baki: Pops, you're horrible ....

Yujiro: Hnn ...?

__censored__

Baki: Now of all times ... // You would compliment me ...?

Yujiro: What ... // you don't want to be?

Baki: No ... // I ...

__censored__

Baki: Dad fist which was always clenched tight towards me ... // Is in such a relaxed manner // I could touch it all I want, // Enough // Just enough .... // Even if it's a trap // Even if he is just lying to me.

__censored__

Baki: If he could just put me on the head and say "well done" ....!!!

__censored__

Yujiro: .... // Hoo ..?

Baki: Let's stop. // Something like this ... // Right now ... // we're in the middle of something important.

__censored__

Baki: A fight which decides a winner. // This is a fight to settle who is the strongest.

Tokugawa: Nicely said.

Doppo: Alright ...

__censored__

Yujiro: Now is a good opportunity. // A good chance // to show you to truly experience the essence of strength.

Baki: Strength's ... // essence ...? // !

__censored__

!

Yujiro: Did you miss it? // My trigger ...

Baki: I can't move an inch ... // Like caught in a vise ...

__censored__

Yujiro: Now then ... // Just what is "strength"

Baki: ....

Yujiro: I, who wish to pet your head in light of your grace // and you, who refuses to be petted.

Baki: Eh!!? // Eh!!?

Yujiro: Very easy to understand.

Yujiro: So now I'm going to do it.

Baki: What!!! Stop!!!

__censored__

Baki: Let me go!!!

Strength is ....

Yujiro: Ffun ... // getting all excited ...

__censored__

To power to realize you're will ....

Yujiro: Making such a naive face ...

Even without words // it's meaning was passed on to him.

Chapter 271 - Trigger

__censored__

__censored__

__censored__

__censored__

Yujiro: Che ... // How long has it been since I went down ...?

Tokugawa: ... Wha? // He fell ...??

Tokio: Just what ...? // What is going on here??

__censored__

Onlookers: Just now that father ... // He limped over? // What ... // He just limped over ...?

__censored__

Doppo: Yo .. You can do this!? ... // If you just look at the approach ... // It would look as if Baki moved first ...

__censored__

Doppo: But the logic is not that simple. // It's has to do with the brain.

In the martial arts the act of movement // In other words the "action"

__censored__

It's a mistake to believe the body moves right after the brain sends the order // The brain actually sends the order 0.5 seconds before any action

"Doesn't realize order" -> 0.5 seconds -> "Realizes order from brain"

__censored__

When the brain sends that order // the 0.5 seconds before action ... // those 0.5 seconds the individual cannot react! // With no exception. // If you were attacked you couldn't respond.

__censored__

To master to act of "reading" the opponent // Is in fact a the action of probing each other for the lag time // A plateau reached only after "reading" many opponents.

__censored__

Doppo: This youngster ... // At the age of 18 // is he at that stage already? // Does he have perception of that lag!!! // At such a young age!!!

__censored__

Yujiro: I already acknowledged it .... // That my son, Baki, was the greatest of toys.

Baki: Heh ...

Yujiro: Even so ...

__censored__

Yujiro: To think you would pull this out on me ...

Baki: Sorry about that dad, // for punching you ...

Yujiro: The level of swordsman from long past // were said to have reached this perception,

__censored__

Yujiro: That Scandinavian once said // once spoke about the subject. // About the trigger that occurs 0.5 after the brain.

Baki: Did you borrow that line from Mr. Oliva?

Oliva: Consciousness comes 0.5 seconds late.

__censored__

Yujiro: The trigger which I unknowingly fired // was caught be you within those 0.5 seconds.

__censored__

Yujiro: Well done.

Baki: Eh?

Yujiro: Come here, I'll pet you for a job well done.

__censored__

Baki: Wha ... // Wha ... // What???

Baki: What are you saying // How stupid.

Yujiro: Don't be so reserved // Come over here.

Baki: This is a fight!

Baki: This ...!!?

__censored__

Yujiro: To compliment a son's accomplishments is obvious for a parent.

Baki: This ... // Wha ... // Why // What is this feeling!!? // Eh? // Tears ...

Son of Ogre 270

__censored__

Dad, having showing this new form ...

__censored__

Aims towards nothing // and unleashes his fist // invisible pressure flies towards me // and hits me ...

__censored__

! // It dispersed around me // while my attention was still stolen by him

__censored__

He draws in the air with such beauty // a round house kick ....

__censored__

Just like the previous punch // invisible pressure ... // is released into the surrounding area ...

__censored__

It begins to take further shape // We become able to catch on the the released pressure.

__censored__

Dad's words ... // he wasn't lying.

__censored__

Hanma Yujiro own creation // The Yujiro-Fist

__censored__

Such strength ... // beauty ... // natural ...

__censored__

He "imitates" himself. // There isn't anything more natural // nothing more ideal then HIS fist.

Rather than humans imitating having claws // rather then trying to have scythes // Trying to copy bears who weight much more than humans // or even animals that only exist in folklore ....

__censored__

The on lookers were excited // This is the individual strength that all nations fear ....

__censored__

To think it was so beautiful ....

__censored__

Yujiro: How was it .... // My "style"

Baki: Dad, you have .... // The hard fist // that belong to "Hanma Yujiro"

__censored__

Baki: Those strong muscles // which are at the level of "Hanma Yujiro" // Speed that is at the level of "Hanma Yujiro"

Just as performers are themselves ...

__censored__

Baki: The Hanma Yujiro who "imitates" Hanma Yujiro // is the pinnacle of perfection in itself.

__censored__

Baki: ... but dad ...

Yujiro: Yes?

Baki: Being concerned with styles and such // that won't get you anywhere.

Tokugwa: Oh ...

__censored__

Yujiro: Eh? // won't get me anywhere? // then what??

Baki: Heh // If you don't know I'll teach you // That's right ...

__censored__

The last stop in the pursuit of style // is always one's natural self // This ...

__censored__

I will teach to you ...

Son of Ogre 269

To touch, feel, confirm each other's existence ... however these two can only do this by hurting one another.

_censored_

Singularly following the law of survival of the fittest // following this stern law for many generations // the fit learn // learn to ways of battle

_censored_

Resulting from the law of the world // in other words // the fighting ways of the absolute strong // From this // humans take note

_censored_

Learning from the strong // Studying the strong // Take notice of those who live // Notice of the chosen few

_censored_

The absolute response of nature // and the wisdom of millions of people derived from it // His father ridicules all this // The act of imitation

_censored_

And everything with it

_censored_

Even going as far to say he's achieved the pinnacle of the fist.

_censored_

Baki: (What pose will he take ...? // What is he going to imitate ...!?)

Yujiro: Idiot // these movements // can only be one thing

_censored_

Baki: Huh!?

_censored_

Yujiro: Nunnn ....

_censored_

Baki: ! // eh? // ... // What was that just now ...

Onlookers: Uwah // hee // !? // !? // Wha!?

_censored_

Onlookers: // Oowah // ! // What!? // !? // eh!? // Wa .. // Ooh // Eh!? // Eh!? // What!?

_censored_

A invisible "shockwave" hit the onlookers. // One of the onlookers // Mizuhara Rika(27) gives her explanation of what she saw.

Rika: In a nearby hotel // in a 4th floor office I was watching with the staff // The father torn his shirt apart // At the same time the window started squealing ...

_censored_

Rika: Of course we were all surprised by the noise // the real problem wasn't the sound or the shock wave ... // A light // I saw some sort of light. // Well ... // I can't really say that it was really light. // ..... // Something ... // was there ...

_censored_

Rika: Within the shock wave .... // was some sort of shape .... // It's as if ... // the shock wave had some sort of will of it's own ....
_censored_

The people who were hit by the shockwave // they all have similar claims .... // they saw some sort of light ......

Baki: I get it ...

_censored_

Hanma Yujiro's style!!!

Baki: It's the form of light!

_censored_

Baki: That's so like you.

Gallery: Hey // Just now ... // I saw something ...

Baki: Studying how to fight from the "strong ones". // eventually you would reach "light"

_censored_

Yujiro: Sorry but ... // I don't know of anything "stronger" than this ....

Baki: Hmpt. // You aren't wrong.
