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 280

Chapter 280: Tiger King reversal

Baki: .... // The ... // OK sign ...?

Baki: ...

Baki: (His right hand ... // He raised it up ... // No ... // Just by raising his right hand ...

Just what ... // kind of meaning does it have ....

Baki: (Meaning ...) // (Confidence...) // (This should't mean anything)

I've got him in a perfect hold // Just what can his right hand do!!?

Baki: (Uses? Confusion? I can't even see how...)

(soniku: whoa. don't want to be on receiving end of that.)

Crowd: (Oh! // Owah)

Crowd: Ooh!? // It's cracked ... // Aah ...

Baki: !

Crowd: It's buried in the ground! // It's in the asphault! // his arm! // Like it was clay ....

Crowd: He torn up the asphalt! // A punch came from underground! // That's impossible!

Crowd: That's inhuman! // He's just too strong!

Oliva: Fufu ... // The asphalt on the ground ... // To just tear it up like that ...

Doppo: I wouldn't believe it unless it was Hanma Yujiro ....

Oliva: Well it you think about it ... // It makes sense ... // For Ogre, his recognition of asphalt is different // If you were fighting on top something like Jelly // The ground is no longer ground ...

Baki: Pops, I'm sorry ... // It's just as I said ... // A cheap trick ... // that's truly befitting of me ...

Baki: But now ... // This fight ... // I want to win so badly I've pissed myself.

Son of Ogre 279

Chapter: Above the father.

Got him!!!

Crowd: He got him // He managed to get a shot it // A complete turn around!

Oliva: Heh.

Oliva: To make a such a blunder against such a classic technique like that ....

Oliva: Did you start getting complacent Ogre ... // But that aside ... // Baki ....

Oliva: You've become way too strong young boy ....

This thick feeling under his knee, definitely his father's neck // He's stolen the freedom of his arm.

Baki: Right now .... Dad is BELOW ME!!!

The feeling of achievement from overcoming his "place" // mixed with the feelings of superiority and confusion that comes with it.
(soniku: Think back a few chapters; Yujiro: Know your place boy")

Baki: I did it!

Doppo: Keh ... // Ogre // You're let your guard down too much. // (Baki is a monster that carries your own blood) // Idiot ... // You're looking down on him too much.

Baki: Hey pops ... // You hear me?

Yujiro: ....

Baki: "Just when I'm wondering how will you will come at me, you use a cheap trick like that"! // Dad ...

Baki: Those usual retorts of yours // hard to say when your in this position, right?

Baki: Don't screw with me Pops! // You're not going to let it end here right!

Baki: I'll never admit to an ending like this! // Go on, try and comeback from this!

Baki: That's what makes you HANMA YUJIRO right!!?

Doppo: (Baki, you shouldn't get too carried away here ... // Your dad isn't this weak.)

Baki: Eh ...?

Son of Ogre 278

Yujiro: 5 / 4 / 3

Yujiro: 2 / 1

Baki: Now!!!

My fastest "Iai Fist" // Faster then anything before! // As a result his body takes the appropriate stance. // Not removing his hands yet.

Not moving from his hands from there starting position // He starts to crouch low.

Just like this. // While keeping the grip very low

He spreads his hips and draws. // It looks just as Iai.

Yujiro: Ya.


Yujiro: Yyaaaaaaaaa

Yujiro: aaaaaaaa... // ...a

Yujiro: (Breathe in)

The greatest present from Baki he prepared for tonight.

Leg around the neck. // The legs from below ...

Shatters the chin! // The technique said to be comparable to a tiger strike!

Called "Ko-Ou"!
(soniku: Tiger King. haha he pulled of Tanba's signature move.)
