Editorial Reviews

The brutal quest to be the best fighter in the world is a savage one and in a warrior's life, victory and survival are often one and the same. Baki Hanma has bled for this dream, harnessing in his fists the passion for power that separates the real deal from the weak. But the battle is unending and there will be hell to pay.

Baki Hanma is a young man living in the shadow of his father, known to be the most famous fighter of the times and considered by most as the strongest being on the planet. Driven beyond endurance to better his elder no matter the cost, the pain, Baki forsakes his coach and his training, setting out on a quest. He goes to challenge the world's most talented fighters and athletes in a variety of martial arts disciplines - karate, jiu-jitsu, boxing, kickboxing, wrestling, sumo, etc. Power, Speed, Technique.

This set contains the entire 48 episode series on 7 discs....over 1200 minutes of kick-butt action!

"Baki the Grappler" is 48 episodes of some of the best animated fight sequences I've ever seen. There is a story, but it only serves the purpose of propelling the characters into combat with one another. The simplistic story is kept alive by the wealth of interesting and fully fleshed-out characters that inhabit Baki's world. Each fighter has a unique persoality, backstory, fighting style, and motivation to be the world's strongest martial-artist. The battles are intense, the art is typically great, and the theme song really gets your blood pumping. This is the best show of it's kind and should really scratch an itch for MMA (Mixed Martial-Arts) fanatics.

Essentially, Baki Hanma is the son of the word's strongest fighter, Yujiro Hanma (aka "The Ogre"); a man who kills polar bears with his bare hands just for the fun of it, a man who can easily overcome a fully armed battalion of soldiers through sheer martial-arts prowess and cunning, a man so ridiculously strong...well you get the idea: he's a bad mutha (shut'cho mouth!). Baki's mother, desperately in love, wants nothing more than to be loved in return by this beast of man and she plans to use her son to make it happen. She figures if Baki can be the best fighter in the world, Yujiro will come sweep her off her feet and they can all live happily ever after rather than The Ogre's usual "knock 'em up and ditch 'em" approach to romance. Women have some weird logic sometimes. So Baki trains. A lot. We first meet him at age 13 challenging 100 gang members to a fight...all at once. He only gets 30 or so before going down (sissy) and decides that his state-of-the-art training facility isn't enough; he needs some real experience to become stronger.

Baki Hanma is a 13 year old boy with a mission; he must become the greatest grappler and strongest man in the world at the request of his father Yujiro Hanma, whom is recognized as the King of all fighters. Baki's journey will pit him against all manner of opponents. But what will become of him should he fail to become the fighter his father wants him to be? -summary

Baki the Grappler is a 48 episode anime series which ran in 2001 and I believe it made it to the states in 2005. The series is not to be confused with the original Grappler Baki 45 minute OVA released in 1994, despite both of them being based on Keisuke Itagaki's manga. In fact, the TV series has nothing to do with the original OVA therefore it's perfectly fine to come into this series fresh. Now, I'll just come out the gate and say that Baki the Grappler is still among the best martial arts anime an action fan can come into. For me it's number three right behind Fighting Spirit aka Hajime No Ippo and Shura No Toki. In regards to action, Baki the Grappler is very close to their equal, however it falls tremendously in a face off between the other two in regards to story. To be blunt, as the story moves further, Baki the Grappler begins to suffer. In all fairness though, this all depends on who you talk to. In any case, if you're looking for action free of that Dragon Ball Z style of "powering up", constant reused cels, and battles being stretched far too long, then this is the anime series for you.

Baki the Grappler can best be described as MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) anime style.

Verified Purchase
I Had actually bought the first season awhile back and had developed a great dislike for the series but after about a year later and after seeing some other fighting animes like Street Fighter an the like I decided to re-watch the series and to my surprise actually found myself greatly enjoying the series more for some reason if it was do to being more open minded to the series or just my motivation to watch fighting animes I don't know but I have definitely changed my opinion on the series for the most part. If I have any complaint it's just the ending seemed to short-sighted a little on the final conclusion of some of the characters and that I didn't really care for. The animation is a mix of decent to over muscled behemoths about the size of the Juggernaut from Marvel comics fighting in underground tournaments to see who is the strongest fighter in the world. The series is bloody and gory as are the fight scenes but that's what makes it very entertaining to watch sad as that is to say pretty much like all the fanatics of boxing and ultimate fighting an the like. The amazon editorial gives a pretty good description of how the series is so if you're looking for a more in depth story you might want to pass the series over but for any fighting anime fans this series is worth checking out....

This is one of my favorite animes of all time. I blew it off several times and then one day there was nothing else to watch, so I watched it. The art work is great. And the journey, something that any body who wants to be anything can relate.

I much more enjoyed the first season. The second season wasn't as anywhere near as good as the first, in my opinion, but still decent to watch.

As an added note, my japanese isn't good enough for first hand knowledge, but my friend yasuo once told me that in the Baki Manga the kanji (chinese characters) that are used are so deep and intertwined with the philosophy of martial arts that Baki is far more than just the story of a fighter.
