According to manga creator Keisuke Itagaki, on-going sports action manga series Grappler Baki will be ending in 10 or more chapter.
Announcement was made during the Bessatsu Shonen Champion launch event. Latest chapters of the series already features the fighting of the main protagonist Baki with his father Yujiro, which was the series’ original motivation but Itagaki said that there is a possibility that the “Baki” manga may return in the future.
The said Baki manga series has already ended twice when the first series (1991) renamed to New Grappler Baki in 1999 and Baki Hanma: Son of the Ogre in 2006.
The story revolves around young Baki Hanma and his quest to proclaim himself as the strongest in the world, thus taking the title from his father Yujiro Hanma. Baki also fights to gain the trust of his overly psychotic mother.
