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 271
Chapter 271 - Trigger
Yujiro: Che ... // How long has it been since I went down ...?
Tokugawa: ... Wha? // He fell ...??
Tokio: Just what ...? // What is going on here??
Onlookers: Just now that father ... // He limped over? // What ... // He just limped over ...?
Doppo: Yo .. You can do this!? ... // If you just look at the approach ... // It would look as if Baki moved first ...
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"
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"
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.
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.
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!!!
Yujiro: I already acknowledged it .... // That my son, Baki, was the greatest of toys.
Baki: Heh ...
Yujiro: Even so ...
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,
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.
Yujiro: The trigger which I unknowingly fired // was caught be you within those 0.5 seconds.
Yujiro: Well done.
Yujiro: Come here, I'll pet you for a job well done.
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 ...!!?
Yujiro: To compliment a son's accomplishments is obvious for a parent.
Baki: This ... // Wha ... // Why // What is this feeling!!? // Eh? // Tears ...
