The sequel to the Baki series, it is supposed to concentrate around the conflict of Baki vs. his father.
I mean what can I say it is a continuation of the original but it takes place 4-5 years after the original(in the manga timeline) so low on new characters(not many) and the same story, "imma kill my dad," boring. C(Copy)+P(Paste). C+P: "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," still an asshole but now he is older and shows some strength. C+P: "Again my reader has a very weird arrangement of the manga which I'm gonna assume was the original way it was published." This just like the original it is super engrossing and I didn't want to stop reading it I know my first major statement said boring it's the premise that's boring not the actual story. ~SPOILERS~ ~4 years later Baki is still doing Baki things, he's getting stronger and fighting mind enemies(like shadow boxing but they can be anything) which we find out is a Hanma specialty. He fights bullies a kid. Keeps practicing to fight his dad and then he fights some dude named Pickle, who's a fucking caveman, wtf. Then he tells Colonel Scar he wants to eat a meal with his dad which he does, flirts with his crush, sorta. Then he fights his dad now it gets boring it's a regular beat down here nothing special except more mind things and grandpa Hanma ghosts into the fight and doesn't do anything and Baki wins but says he loses. His dad gave him the title for messing with his mind during another meal but the Hanma mind games meal, and Yujiro flips out after Baki flips a non-existent table with the food on it. Stupid. Worth 1 read.
My personal favorite Baki series so far. The art is absolutely gorgeous at points and Itagaki's sense of wheight and momentum when drawing characters is nearly unparraleld from my experience, the characters themelves are well written and we get some interesting character devolpments for long time characters ( yeeeeeeaaaa!! RETSU BOXING SAGA!!). the final saga in the manga the "strongest father and child quarrel on earth" saga is a HUGE payoff for longtime readers and is the probably the closest we'll get to a proper Baki vs Yujiro fight/resolution.
