I won this avatar on a technicality this thick.

^^^ It'll be free for a week in a day. You get 5 free keys if you make an account, that's how I read it.

Their business model is also pretty bad. No sub, you pay for keys which unlock chapters(which I assume you then own). New chapters are free for a week though(after 24 hours of the initial release)

They are free the first hour of release (roughly 10:30 EST), then locked up for 12 hours (or after midnight, forgot which is the case), after which they are free again and will stay free until the next chapter is released.

The site could certainly be worse. Kengan definitely deserves a better platform, but I'll use it anyways because an official release is an official release.

The keys seem relatively cheap at least for weekly readers, 4 bucks for 10. If you're just reading the free weekly chapter and occasionally using a key to break the 12 hour window then that would last a very long time. I'll have to work out how much the full collection would wind up costing.

If you're only reading one series then the keys aren't too bad but they don't scale up very well if you read more than one.

They could be spending more than $50 to read just one series.

It's about $113 before taxes and new chapters to get every chapter of ashura and omega if they were all released right now, that seems a tad expensive.

Is this bad, it just sounds like a standard (non-fast-pass) Korean webtoon payment model, except Korean webtoons don't give you the newest chapters for free.

He is constantly around in the various Baki comics and generally gets dunked on by whatever boss fighter that is going to be crushed by Baki to show off their strength. In the Bakiverse he is very much a big deal, kind of like say Okubo where he is a figure in both the above and below ground world.

He is a big deal. He started out as a bigger deal when he was first introduced but the Baki manga has been going for so long there's been a lot of power creep. Now he's a background regular who will clown on everyone except the new big challenge the latest saga introduced (where he will get destroyed instead). Since his introduction he has had his eye poked out, got punched so hard his heart stopped and everyone thought he died, had his arm cut off and his face blown up by a bomb. He's still going though... The Orochi in the Kengan comic is the young version of him before all the injuries.

And yeah, he beat up a tiger lol;

Orochi is probably the coolest Baki character. Definitely up there at least.

Glad he was the focus of this short crossover.
