Baki-Dou | Weekly Shōnen Champion

On Thursday, the Weekly Shōnen Champion magazine revealed that Baki-Dou manga will end in the next issue on April 5. The news was shared by AnimeNewsNetwork on twitter:

'Baki-Dou' ("Baki's Path") is a sequel series that began serialization in Weekly Shōnen Champion, written and illustrated by Keisuke Itagaki. The series began in the 16th issue on March 20, 2014 as the third sequel to the original Baki The Grappler manga. Akita Shoten, the original publisher of the series, released the 20th compiled book volume on February 8, and the 21st volume will ship on April 6.

The manga's 14th volume was adapted into an original anime OAD in December 2016, that focuses on the "Most Evil Death Row Convicts" arc from Itagaki's Baki (New Grappler Baki: In Search of Our Strongest Hero) manga. The same story arc is the center of focus in the upcoming Netflix's anime adaptation of the series, scheduled to premiere in summer 2018 inside Japan, and in fall 2018 outside of Japan.

Here's the plot of the series according to MAL:

Baki is bored. After the conclusion of the epic battle between father and son, he continues to fight in the underground arena and train nonstop, but he always has to suppress his yawn caused by the overbearing boredom. No amount of stimulus or danger can bring excitement to him at this point.

Now, with the inclusion of the Prime Minister of Japan in the loop, a massive cloning project is attempting to clone Miyamoto Musashi, one of the fathers of martial arts in Japan. Another fight of historical proportions awaits Baki!
