Kinnikuman Second Generation: The Great All Out Chōjin Assault (キン肉マンⅡ世～オール超人大進撃～ Kinnikuman Nisei: Ōru Chōjin Dai Shingeki) is a manga series by Yudetamago. It was an alternate retelling of their series Kinnikuman Nisei.
Serialized in Shueisha's game magazine V Jump from 2002 to May 2007.
Like Yudetamago's other work, Kinnikuman Nisei (which ran in Weekly Playboy), it is a sequel to their earlier work Kinnikuman (serialised in Weekly Shonen Jump from 1979 to 1987), however the story develops differently than in Kinnikuman Nisei.
(More to Come)
This is a retelling of the Chojin Olympics: The Resurrection Arc.
In this arc, Ikemen Muscle announces that there will be a "Top Chojin Festival". This sets both Seigi Chojin and Akugyo Chojin against one another, as they determine the most powerful chojin out of all chojin, and a tournament begins that introduces some new characters and reintroduces some old characters.
The preliminary match consists of holding onto monkey bars for as long as possible, which leaves them with eight finalists. Fiona, Okan, Naankeeman, and Tteok lose the first round of the main competition, and this is followed by the losses of Tentacles and Kevin Mask in the semi-finals. In the final match, Mantaro Kinniku wins against The Doomman. This helps turn Doomman into a Seigi Chojin.
The manga ends with all former competitors now working together.
Differences from the Playboy Version
- The big Chōjin fighting tournament is not the Chojin Olympics but rather the Chojin Ittosai (超人一等祭, Top Chōjin Festival). Whereas the Chōjin Olympics was basically a Seigi Chōjin Tournament (with the exception of Akugyo Chōjins who sneak in), the Chōjin Ittō-sai mixes both good and evil Chōjin to decide who is the "Top" Chōjin amongst them
- Female Chojin like Okan and Fiona participate in the fights
- The character Gazelleman appears more frequently and prominently. Particularly, whereas in the Playboy Version he is never shown winning a match, in this story he is shown winning 2 matches
