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 272
Chapter 272 - To pet
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)
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.
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!
Yujiro: So what!? // Just where would you find a father who doesn't congratulate his son's acomplishments.
Baki: ? ? ? // This ... // This feeling ...
From the center of the young boys being // something feeling like pain overcomes him // Something like pain but also far from it.
Tears of happiness ....
Doppo: I can't stand to watch.
Tokugawa: How sad ...
Receiving compliments from the father was normal // this was one young boy who was far from this logic
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 ...?
Baki: Now of all times ... // You would compliment me ...?
Yujiro: What ... // you don't want to be?
Baki: No ... // I ...
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.
Baki: If he could just put me on the head and say "well done" ....!!!
Yujiro: .... // Hoo ..?
Baki: Let's stop. // Something like this ... // Right now ... // we're in the middle of something important.
Baki: A fight which decides a winner. // This is a fight to settle who is the strongest.
Tokugawa: Nicely said.
Doppo: Alright ...
Yujiro: Now is a good opportunity. // A good chance // to show you to truly experience the essence of strength.
Baki: Strength's ... // essence ...? // !
Yujiro: Did you miss it? // My trigger ...
Baki: I can't move an inch ... // Like caught in a vise ...
Yujiro: Now then ... // Just what is "strength"
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!!!
Baki: Let me go!!!
Strength is ....
Yujiro: Ffun ... // getting all excited ...
To power to realize you're will ....
Yujiro: Making such a naive face ...
Even without words // it's meaning was passed on to him.
