During his prime, Keybo Miyazawa's father fought the legendary Iron Kiba. Though they came to a stalemate, Kiba lost an eye and has held a grudge to this very day. Now, in the present, Keybo is the successor of the murderous Nanshin Shadow Style, which can easily kill a man where he stands. His father trains him well, but soon Kiba reappears and the two decide that Keybo and Kiba's disciples must battle to put an end to their feud. With many opponents in his way and no end to the feud (or Kiba's hatred) in sight, Keybo must deliver blow after bloody blow to clear his family's name and uphold the Nanshin Shadow Style.
In the world of underground fighting, there is no time limit, no referee, and no ban of technique, not even murderous ones. This is the underground world that Baki, the young champion fighter must fight in to show the world how strong he can be. Only by challenging and accepting the strongest opponents from the world can he hope that one day he can overcome his greatest opponent of all, his father.
If you like real intense no holds barred fights beween various disciplines then look no further this is it!
Not for the faint hearted!
If you like Shootfighter you will LOVE baki. Seemingly realsitic fights taken to extream levels. Over all in my opinion Baki is a better show in almost every aspect but mainly in plot and character development, Which is something Shootfighter suffered from having very little of either.
Shirahama "weak legs" Kenichi is a typical high school student with typical problems: he's frequently bullied and tends to run away in the face of his enemies. Things change when Kenichi meets Furinji Miu, whose grandfather runs a dojo; and not knowing what he's getting himself into, he signs up to become a disciple. As Kenichi's life-threatening training continues and he becomes more and more powerful, he inadvertently becomes the target of the deadly gang called Ragnarok. With mental and physical challenges ahead, can Kenichi survive his encounters with Ragnarok, or will the masters of his dojo get to him first?
