Preliminary (151/154 eps)
Baki Dou (2018) or Sumo-Dou as it came to be known, could generously be called inventive and more realistically could be called "controversial". The fifth Baki series by Keisuke Itagaki, this series is no stranger to mixed opinions by the general public, with many people being turned off by the artstyle of the series, which really couldn't be called pretty by any stretch of the imagination. But Sumo-Dou feels unique in that it's the first of Itagaki's series that seemed intensely polarizing to people who were already fans of the manga. I feel this reason is the management of expectations. To be 100% clear, this ...

Baki Dou (2018) is still relatively early in its run (60ish chapters in what will likely end up being a couple hundred) but I thought I'd write this review to encapsulate some of my problems with the early parts of the series, how it continues some of the biggest flaws of the previous series and why so far this has been more or less the nadir of the long Baki series.

Baki Dou is the fifth serialization of the Baki series. It also has the same title as the previous part. Well, apparently it's written differently in Japanese or something. With this, two problems already emerge:

1. This series is too similar to the previous one. Ever since the Pickle Arc, or even arguably the Deathrow Inmates Arc, it seems Itagaki's favorite structure is just bringing in some really strong guy, have him fight series mainstays, and then just go away. The same is true here. I'd be surprised if Sukune shows up again, and I'm certain none of the other Sumo guys will get any page ...
