The synopsis of "Grappler Baki" couldn't be more boring and unoriginal; a teenager seeks to become the most powerful fighter in the world.

However, the execution of this hackneyed concept is what's extraordinary.

For starters, there are hardly any monologues or emotional flashbacks, and absolutely no cute, "funny" scenes of the main character being hit by a girl. Instead, each episode is filled with brutal, highly entertaining fights, most of them featuring the hero, Baki, getting the absolute piss beaten out of him.

What's great is all the characters have a back story and even though they want a piece of Baki, they are portrayed in ways where you can sympathize with all them including Baki and I feel you can sympathize with Yujiro to some extent. They are people that are portrayed with reasons of what they do. And what’s also good about this anime is that it’s very fast pace. You can watch like 4 episode and you feel like maybe 15 to 20 minutes have passed by. But what I really didn’t like is in the last 45% of the season with the time skip, read more

This is an anime everybody should see. The story may not be as deep as keshin or love hina but still this is a good anime. If you ever want to see a cool anime give this one a try. It may seem like a bad anime at first but it is sort of like the anime berserker. You will defintely want to see more. An anime with figting scenes all the and a nice story line. What more can you ask for. Yeah!!!

Although many have said similar ideas to what i am about to present to you, i believe it really is true with this anime.

What i love about this anime is how each character has its own background story, from the great Yasha Ape, Baki himself, to Yuri and Hanayama. All these characters make up the base of Baki the grappler. But lets not forget our favourite devil (Yujiro Hanma), yes you all hate him at first, but you actually end up actually liking him, the way he breaks up fights, his annoying weird voice and his devilishness :P

The story is about baki, a 13 read more
