Bruh, I felt so bad for Jr. XD
One Piece episode 914 & 915 were a mistake and 957 brought the salvation

I expected more from that fight, but maybe it will be of some use for the third season or part 4. But I look forward to the fight with his father
Sometimes otakus are rejected by society, so I discovered that it is much better to be an
otaku in secret.

It's funny how Jr went from a cocky rising talent to being pitied by everyone including his chauffeur. As soon as he heard the line about the arena being packed with people who had come to see his courage, he should have run for the hills. Jr was a naïve human trying to make it in a world of monsters.

What's the point of building a great character if you're just going to destroy him in seconds.Jr was becoming one of my favorite in the show but they did him dirty.

It's a good decision to show the majority of Jr. and Baki's fight in Jr's perspective. It shows how terrifyingly strong Baki really is, knowing that, it's still impressive how some think that he's the strongest in the world, after his father of course. Though I still feel everything was rushed, not the fight itself, but how they got to that fight, like everything leading up to that fight was rushed.

Also, it would have been better if Netflix adapted the first part too, Baki's journey on how he became champion on the underground tournament. I bet a lot of people watching this didn't watch the old Baki anime, even I barely remember it tbh.

Not sure why they had to destroy such a good character just to symbolize how baki internalized the message he got from when he fought his dad without realizing that it was a fight to the death and his mother payed the prize for it.

Not to mention that the fight was so anti climatic. Just like every fight baki had in this season. His presence as a proper mc has weakened severely after season two.

Probably she felt pity for the guy, you know he was crying like a fucking kid after that beatdown, well to be honest I don't know how much she understands Baki as a human to be next to him, we shall see if there will be a next season.

Yeah I feel the same. He was practically the protagonist for a few episodes too but the show IS called “Baki” not “Muhammad Alai Jr” lol. From what I heard, Alai Jr doesn’t even appear again in the manga which I think totally sucks. Like, talk about wasted potential.

Haha we all got trolled very hard. Anti-climatic is an understatement. I liked previous season way more.

I don't see the point of introducing Jr. character like that and trash him like shit. Waste of time and pointless.

A bit weak with Alai Jr. lol. I thought he'd beat Baki so Baki can train more to become even stronger. Still fun to see some of the other chars (even though only for a second) like the Kureha brothers and Hanayama Kaoru.

I see that cheap pickup lines and crocodile tears scored some big points with Kozue.
Jr might've lost the fight but at least he got the girl.

Meh, with how bad this show is; I honestly should have expected that. Since everyone's already pretty much gone over how pointless this arc was; no point in reiterating it.

I seriously don't know what happened to this show after the first half of the convicts arc. Literally the entire show now is just "Look at this super strong guy. He's unbeatable" and then someone beating the shit out of that guy effortlessly (while also taking multiple episodes to do so).

Ali got power-creeped. Then he got nerfed by getting beat up by everyone who beat him up. Then he lost nigh instantly.

I enjoyed the episode, but not one of the best ways to show Baki's improved strength.

Pretty good episode, Baki literally blew up Alai Jr. though but hey, next episode we're going to see father Hanma versus son Hanma I hope. Then it'll be over... and by the way I don't really understand his girlfriend.

Even though deep inside I hoped Junior would win or at least put up a good fight, I kinda expected his one-sided defeat by the previous events of him supposedly being incredibely strong -> getting beaten the living shit out of him -> mostl likely to win -> only ended up getting oneshotted by Baki. This arc felt pretty pointless and it's pretty sad how they treated Junior in such a trash way.

Not now. It's still very far. 2 more seasons at least as a preparation for that fight. Not to mention the damn probability to get a filler season about convicts next.

But he didn't. It's nothing but a pity. In a negative meaning of this word. She obviously stays with Baki and just comforts a weak and helpless boy.

Baki has gotten so ridiculously powerful (even though he didn't actually train, just kept receiving random power-ups as we contemplated others fight). Oh, and the 'imagine' thing is total bullshit.

I think alai junior is likable and the son of a legend that's why they hopes for him but in the end he was fighting baki only.
I honestly think baki can win this thing I don't want it to be a one punch match where his father defeats him in seconds~$
