Ah, Baki, where to start where to start
At surface level, Baki seems like a stereotypical shounen, about a boy training to become the worlds strongest and face it all head on, and technically that's not a wrong synopsis.
So what separates Baki from other shounen anime? Well, the creator, Keisuke Itagaki, did his homework to say the least, having military experience and a degree in Shorinji Kenpo, he didn’t need to rely on things like ‘increasing power level/chakra/ki’, and instead gave a mixture of fantasy martial arts and real ones taken to the next level, all having basis in the principles and applied knowledge read more

Preliminary
Like I've mentioned many times before I really don't like doing a review until the series is finished(this one is), but this is one of the very few exceptions, mainly the scanners are for some reason way behind in the original series but have most of the others finished, lol.

I really do like this manga it is one of the many I would recommend to old and new alike. But the one main thing that nags at me the entire time I was reading it is that Baki is an arrogant asshole. Now i would like to mention that as of now(11/03/17) only 197 chapters read more
