Mitsunari Tokugawa, the organizer of the historic Tokugawa underground fighting ring, has created a tournament featuring 38 of the world's best fighters, many of whom are grandmasters in their respective form of martial arts. With the exception of weapons, anything goes in Tokugawa's ring so that each fighter is able to showcase their true power and strongest secret moves.

Baki Hanma earned a place in the tournament due to his status as the reigning champion of Tokugawa's fighting ring. Will he be able to come out on top?

Okay; let's all say the word:

“Yet another strongest in the world”.

Makes you think that there must be a lot of misinformation and censorship in the world of Baki for people to always be shocked when a character breaks the previous strongest fighter and reclaim the title.

I'm an avid believer that early Baki, in his 13 yo was the best version of himself, but as for everyone else, this season completely blows anything else away.

The season took the word Tournament and made some of the best entertaining matchups there are. Seriously, an episode could start with the referee declaring the opponent as a Sumo wrestler vs. ...

Mixed Feelings
Grappler Baki II is the second season to the action/shonen show, Grappler Baki.

Story: Well, one interesting aspect about the storyline in this anime is that pretty much all 26 episodes take place in one day. As far as the story itself goes, it's nothing too special, it's just a tournament of 30+ fighters, with some plot twists and flashbacks thrown in to broaden the storyline and characters. Having a tournament in a shonen show is a terribly overused technique, but I cannot refrain myself from admitting that it is a very effective cliche. A tournament is thrilling to watch, since you wonder who will make ...

Preliminary (1/24 eps)
I'd like to say that i'm a huge fan of the first 199 chapters of Grappler Baki, and I really tried here, but this is awful. I only made it through 1 episode, and that was really hard to get through. This covered the small amount of the Maximum Tournament that actually is translated in the manga, and it did so poor a job at it that I was shocked. It skips over some characters personalities completely, and literally every character is mischaracterized, I am not exaggerating when I say that. Not to mention that it fails on every technical level, it's horribly directed, the ...
