5.0 out of 5 stars A pleasant surprise... 22 Jun 2005
By The reviewer - Published on Amazon.com
This new anime based on the hit selling comic is very enjoyable

and intriguing. After watching the 4 episodes I couldn't wait for the next installment. The animation, characters, soundtrack, and plot are all done extremely well. Baki, a 13 year old take-no-s*hit kind of fighter, is always out looking for the next great challenge which makes this a violent, fast-paced series.

During the viewing I was reminded of another excellent anime series, Fighting Spirit, so if you're enjoying that series then Baki is right up your alley.

This DVD is also available in the DVD starter kit, so it looks like there might be about 6 or 7 DVD's total in this set.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is just the beginning..... 27 Oct 2005
By Greg A. Julian - Published on Amazon.com
I already have a two volume collection which I purchased at a comic store about a year ago and it is still in steady rotation for viewing pleasure. If you watched the U.S Manga Version Grappler Baki - The Ultimate Fighter, it does not even compare to this series. If you think it will be expenseive to collect the whole series, believe me it is worth it. This series is insane. 5+ stars Hands down!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Grapples you and doesn't let go! 8 Feb 2007
By Nyghtshayd - Published on Amazon.com
Hands Down this has to be the best strictly martial-arts anime SERIES out now.

Parents, be advised that this series is hand-to-hand and is violent yet not too graphic.

In this volume, we meet Baki a lone 13y.o. in Japan who is on a mission to be the greatest fighter in the world. Living separately from but fully endorsed by his SMOKIN-HOTT mother who is obsessed with Baki's father Ujiro who is indeed, a martial arts monster...get vol.1 and 2 and you will agree.

Animation:

Body musculature is exaggerated...every 3rd episode or so they switch artists and you can really tell the difference. I don't know why they do this but I get really happy when they go back...

Sound:

As always, the Japanese voice acting with subtitles is great. The English voice acting isn't so great, hokey sounding, some comical dialog, and the different from what is being said in Japanese about a third of the time...BUT all that makes it worth watching again.

Music:

Now THIS is one of the things that grabbed me!

It has a Jap-Rock intro, the usual but good background and incident themes and jazzy cool ending theme...but when the action starts, you get a euro-dance track that goes very well. When the action ends a nice lounge house track. All well done IMO.(this made me want the sound track)

Story:

After I got the first "6" volumes, I thought the story would get old... that was until I got a hold of 7&8... Ok we are talking about vol.1 right now. So for story? "Grapples you and doesn't let go!"

Overall:

If you get this by itself you will be crying in a corner saying "WHY OH WHY DIDN'T I GET 2 OR 3 AT A TIME...! ". There are three things that hooked me.

1. Who Baki is going to face.

2. What happens between face-offs.

3. What impossible feat will Ujiro pull off next.

I Highly recommend this set.
4.0 out of 5 stars Tough Kid 18 Jan 2006
By Keith A. Jones - Published on Amazon.com
The only problem with Baki the Grappler is the animation is pretty crappy but besides that the series is perfect.
Baki is fearless and ruthless and barley a teen. He will stop at nothing and fight whomever until he is crowned the greatest fighter and gets the respect he wants. There are several mysteries about Baki that are waiting to be uncovered like if Baki has a rich mother that loves him and even comes to visit him time from time then why does he live in a neighborhood filled with people that hate him by himself. The fighting is pretty good but Baki seems to get beat up a lot because he's either outnumbered or just plain old beaten fare and square. Hopefully after a while we'll be able to understand more things about the series.
5.0 out of 5 stars Totally &$*#$*$* awesome! 17 Jun 2005
By Anime Freak - Published on Amazon.com
THIS is what I was looking for! So many lame shows have come out this year that I'd forgotten why I even bothered. Baki reminded me what made me fall in love with anime in the first place. Nonstop action, an adrenaline pumping pace, and slick animation. Aside from Fullmetal Alchemist, this is the first must-have title of the year. The second volume can't get here faster!
