How to Read Baki Manga in Order!

Baki manga is definitely not your average manga on martial arts. But why is it so good? It is easy to answer. 

There are some truly bizarre scenes in the movie that will send chills down your spine.

The change that you will see between the parts is incredible. 

The author has tried to implement the main story in the first section, but he shifted his focus to the characters later.

That worked out quite well. This has led to such a masterpiece.
