FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
BAKI THE GRAPPLER
GET YOUR GRAPPLE ON! MADMAN RELEASES BAKI THE GRAPPLER ON DVD IN SEPTEMBER.

MELBOURNE, Monday, 21 August, 2006 – In the world of underground fighting, there is no time limit, no referee, and no ban of technique - not even murderous ones. This is the underground world that Baki inhabits and now the young champion fighter must show the world how strong he can be.

There is always someone stronger, faster - unafraid to go to any length for victory. It is the passion for power that drives the Grappler. Walking away from his normal training, Baki is convinced he can coach himself to be the strongest in the world. Stumbling on his first step in this new path, will he learn from his errors and achieve his potential?

Only by challenging and accepting the strongest opponents can he hope to one day overcome his greatest opponent of all, his father! Baki's journey on the fighter's road has just begun!

Based on the 42 volume manga series by Keisuke Itagaki, BAKI THE GRAPPLER is a relentless, bone-crunching series that sits firmly in the fighting anime genre alongside classics like STREET FIGHTER and DRAGON BALL Z.
