Grappler Baki is a series and franchise revolving around its titular protagonist, Baki Hanma, and his eternal goal and struggle to become the very strongest of the world over a total of four installments. Much of the conflict is centered around Baki and his father, Yujiro Hanma, with Baki gaining true purpose due to the murder of his mother in an earlier part of the story. The tension reaches its climax with the series third installment, Son of Ogre, with father and son clashing for seemingly the final time. The following fourth segment of the series, Baki-Dou (Way of Baki), focuses on the revival of the legendary Japanese swordsman Musashi Miyamoto, and his campaign to obtaining his former glory. It is concluded with Musashi's soul being ejected out of his body by Sabuko Tokugawa. In the Fall of 2018, Baki-Dou II was released and it confirms the next big challenger to be the descendant of the "God of Sumo", Nomi no Sukune II.
