Plot: Baki is bored. After the conclusion of the epic battle between father and son, he continues to fight in the underground arena and train nonstop, but he always has to suppress his yawn caused by the overbearing boredom. No amount of stimulus or danger can bring excitement to him at this point.
Now, with the inclusion of the Prime Minister of Japan in the loop, a massive cloning project is attempting to clone Miyamoto Musashi, one of the fathers of martial arts in Japan. Another fight of historical proportions awaits Baki!
I created the thread since I spotted this news on ANN today.
Donald Trump Already Makes an Appearance in Baki-Dou Manga
Yujiro Hanma of Baki The Grappler is truly a fearsome man. Stronger than any missile, faster than any bullet, more muscled than any bodybuilder, he strikes terror into all who behold him. He's so powerful, he forced America to withdraw from Vietnam at age 16.
Faced with this kind of overwhelming strength, it's become something of a tradition for American presidents to make appearances in Baki. Yujiro humiliated George W. Bosh by making him his limousine driver. Barack Ozuma tried to head off any trouble by pledging not to mess with him shortly after taking office. And even though President-Elect Donald Trump hasn't even taken office yet, Baki-Dou, the series' latest installment, lost no time in working him into the manga in the November 24 issue of Weekly Shōnen Champion "to honor the upset of the century."
Trump (written Toramupu instead of the usual Toranpu) seems dumbfounded at the top-secret information Ozuma shares with him. Ozuma offers to repeat himself.
Trump gets caught up in a vainglorious frenzy about all the boasting he plans to write in his memoirs. And then he appears...
After wetting himself at the mere sight of Yujiro, Trump repeats the oath he's memorized "word-for-word, at the top of my lungs."
In the previous week's issue of Weekly Shōnen Champion, Baki-Dou artist Keisuke Itagaki expressed his anger at the American election result (it's the figure in the center). Not for any political reason, though: he's frustrated by the "enigmatic structure" of Trump's hair.
Barack Obama has occasionally made cameo appearances in manga — sometimes in NSFW contexts.
The manga series is working to promote the Saga Prefecture in Japan for tourism
This is one of their promotional art materials
The campaign focuses on eight characters from the manga series and each espouses different charms about the region. The first character is 34-year-old police officer Tsuneo Katahira. He talks about burrowing eel goby, the real-life creature that resembles chest-bursters from Alien. The similarities aren't lost on the prefecture's tourism organization.
The second character is a nameless background character who appeared in the manga's first chapter. He talks about Saga's high-quality sake and its native product Nabeshima Daiginjo, which won an award at the 2011 International Wine Challenge in London.
The third character is Tongue, one of the three Mouth triplets. He promotes the forested coast of Karatsu Bay where daimyo Terazawa Hirotaka is said to have planted the sand and wind-resistant trees. The coast boasts about one million pine trees over a 4.5km stretch.
The fourth character is a hunter from the manga's 276th chapter. In the manga he defeats Yujiro Hanma in a tournament by using an anesthesia gun but in the campaign he wants to talk about squid fishing, specifically cuttlefish which he recommends eating as sashimi, boiled, or as shumai.
The fifth character is a Chinese storyteller. He promotes the prefecture's prominent hip-hop music culture including artists KEN THE 390, KOHEI JAPAN, DEJI, and that K DUB SHINE.
The sixth character is a male cheerleader. He promotes the area's quality beef products. Saga prefecture has what is called "Sagaushi" (Saga Beef), a label only given to meat that is a 4 or 5 on the Japanese Meat Quality Score, and a Beef Marbling Standard of 7 or more. Saga beef is also characterized by "gloss finish" marbling.
The seventh character is Jack Lee Beyond, a fan of the area's Ureshino Onsen, a high salt-content hot spring.
The last, and perhaps more ridiculous "character" is Biscuit Oliva's tuxedo. Oliva is able to tear through his clothes leaving behind only a husk. The site says this move is based on Arita ware, a type of Japanese porcelain.
I'm assumng when they end an "arc", they start up a new manga series?
The fifth arc was announced to feature a sumo wrestler named Nomi no Sukune
Baki-Dou, the latest fourth arc of Keisuke Itagaki's long-running martial arts-themed manga series Baki, ends its four-year serialization in this year's 19th issue of Weekly Shonen Champion released today in Japan. The issue also has an announcement for the manga's next fifth arc and its enemy, Nomi no Sukune, a legendary sumo wrestler about 2,000 years ago.
Nomi no Sukune appeared in Nihon Shoki, Japan's second-oldest official history book that was completed in 720. In the legend, he is introduced as the 14th descendant of Amenohohi who was the second son of Amaterasu, the goddess of the sun and the universe. He has been respected as the originator of Sumo wrestling. More details of the next arc will be revealed in the magazine at a later date.
The comedy duo Downtown formed in Japan in 1982 and is considered one of the country's most influential comedy pairs. Their variety television show Downtown DX on Yomiuri TV is celebrating its 25th anniversary. Baki manga artist Keisuke Itagaki drew the pair for the anniversary as part of the "Entertainer Baki Project."
Itagaki drew the Downtown DX performers in his signature Baki manga style: muscular and intimidating. He's also working on a collaboration visual to commemorate Downtown DX program as a whole. Fellow manga artist Jigoku no Misawa is also working on a visual for the program. These visuals will be posted in the Osaka area on November 9 and in the Tokyo area on November 12 as posters, billboards and newspaper advertisements.
This year's 31st issue of Akita Shoten's Weekly Shōnen Champion magazine revealed last week that Keisuke Itagaki will draw a full remake of the first chapter of his Baki The Grappler manga, the first installment in his long-running martial arts action series. The remade chapter will appear in the magazine's next issue on Thursday.
This year's 31st issue of Akita Shoten's Weekly Shōnen Champion magazine revealed on July 2 that Keisuke Itagaki's Baki-Dou manga will take a two-issue hiatus, and will return in the magazine's 33rd issue on July 16.
The new Baki-Dou manga uses different characters for "Baki" in the title from the previous Baki-Dou manga, although it retains the name "Baki-Dou." In the new manga, Baki faces off against Japan's oldest and strongest "sumo god," and features the Japanese legendary sumo wrestler Nomi no Sukune. The wrestler supposedly had the first ever sumo match against Taima no Kehaya in 23 B.C.
The new manga launched in Weekly Shōnen Champion in October 2018. Akita Shoten will publish the manga's sixth compiled book volume on Wednesday.
