Synopsis for Hanma Baki: Son of Ogre
The story of this adaptation is the third arc of the original work and focuses on the final showdown between Baki and his father, Yuujirou. Baki, after 18 years of fighting and pushing his body beyond its natural limits, is almost ready to face his father in one last battle. He publicly challenges his father to a rematch for the title of "The Strongest in the World" and continues to train even harder.
The story follows Baki's training as he prepares to face his father in a final battle, challenging other powerful opponents along the way, such as the bounty hunter "Unchained" Biscuit Olivia and the prehistoric human Pickle, revived from the Mesozoic era. Yuujirou, who lives in solitude on the mountain of strength, sees Baki as little more than a tasty meal that he is marinating to devour. Despite this, he cannot help but hope that his son will be the one to give him the excitement of a fair fight that he has been craving for so long.
As Baki tries to understand his father's monstrous legacy, Yuujirou begins to accept his true feelings towards his son. The two Hanmas move towards their final battle to determine who is truly "The Strongest in the World." Fans of the manga and anime can look forward to this epic finale and witness the intense battle between father and son.
