For starters let me say besides watching this series over and over again. I have to be honest here. READ THE MANGA that's all I have to say first of the characters are pretty bland for the most part (read the manga to understand the characters more).The plot is very simple and bland for a martial arts series. Due to the budget the series fight scenes are pretty much terrible to the point the characters are just swinging their arms and legs around instead of detailed proper techniques. The soundtrack is forgettable besides some songs like get over the limit and rising emotion (forgot the first part of the name of the ending song) by Lapiz Lazuil. the bright side is that it's a good way to get into the series if your a newcomer and want to skip the first 6 volumes (cuz those have HORRIBLE ARTWORK). I only recommend this work only for fans of marital arts series. read more
A young boy fighting inhuman opponents. The fights are excellent and a must see for martial arts fans!
Both are fighting series which incorporate elements of real combat, such as armbars, triangle chokes, and grappling.
They also both don't take themselves too seriously, and contain a great deal of over-the-top humor. Baki is superior among the two, but Shootfighter Tekken is also excellent.
Due to the fact of the fights are very very GRAPHIC when it comes to violence plus it's also a based on a similar very manly manga series called grappler baki. Also the two main leads are in high school and very hot headed at times.
Both feature a young protagonist trying to rival their father's skill at martial arts. It also has a similar focus on grappling and the more technical aspects of fighting.
