I was wondering if you guys could help me find some of the lesser known MMA manga in Japan. These are the ones that I know of: Shura No Mon TOUGH Garouden Grappler Baki Also isnt Garouden based on a book? If so does anyone know where I can get a copy of the books? I heard there was also a move based on Garouden which even featured Yoshiaki Fujiwara. Any info on that?

How do you mean 'help you find'? A walk down to the local used book store (I guess any) and all those manga are there on the shelf. They don't really seem all that rare.

Maybe I should be more specific. I reside in America, and dont have easy access to such manga. My question is, other than those manga I listed, what other lesser known MMA based manga are out there?

The novel Garouden has been adapted by two manga authors, one by the same author as Baki, the other by Taniguchi Jiro. Taniguchi's verison is better imo. http://www.chukai.ne.jp/~gallery/t.j.garoh.jpg The original best-seller novel is writen by Yumemakura Baku http://www.amazon.co.jp/exec/obidos/ASIN/4575001163/qid=1088599305/sr=1-29/ref=sr_1_2_29/250-4488486-2332268

How about kakutougi and puroresu anime? I know Baki is a good kakutougi anime (though my bro begs to differ) and Kinikuman and Tiger Mask are THE puroresu anime but does anyone know of any others? I heard that there was a Giant Baba, Antonio Inoki, and Funk Bros anime and a Rickson Gracie and a Pancrase manga.

I have one comic whose english name is 'Fight for Break'. Can't read the Japanese name though. MMA story about a dorky looking guy ( who does BJJ from his gi) who goes crazy when gets hit hard and then proceeds to destroy his opponent. Anyone know of this one? I've got a Chinese translation.

A couple of months ago there a manga called kakuto-ou, the King of Fighting. It had a 50 page story about Josh Barnett.

I am "reading" a manga at the moment about Satake, and the first K-1 Grand prix. It's a lot of fun. Just doing it to improve me Japanese.
