Fans still have a few more weeks to go before being reunited with the son of Yujiro!
The trailer gives us a better look at the next 12 episodes which will cover the young brawler battling Mike Tyson, a giant praying mantis, and a prison full of inmates to cap things off. The new season will be directed by Toshiki Hirano, who directed Magic Knight Rayearth and worked as an animator on many classic anime titles from the ’80s and ’90s, including Macross: Do You Remember Love?
It has been revealed that Nobunaga Shimazaki is returning to play the lead character, Baki Hanma.
ABOUT THE ANIME SERIES
Netflix describes Baki Hanma as such:
The story finally unfolds into a full-blooded clash between Baki Hanma and his father, Yujiro Hanma, who is known as the “strongest creature on earth.” The climax of the Baki universe, which depicted the “strongest parent-child brawl in the history of the world” in the original manga, has been adapted into the long-awaited anime!
Baki is one of anime’s top fighting series and ever since Baki landed on Netflix, we’ve witnessed the son of Yujiro Hanma increasing his strength in order to defeat his father in one-on-one combat, with the series seeing both him and his friends battling escaped inmates, one another, and warriors from the strongest parts of China.
Baki manga author Keisuke Itagaki is the father of Beastars manga author, Paru Itagaki. Amazing drawing talent runs through the family as Paru just launched her new manga titled Sanda.
Keisuke Itagaki launched the original Baki manga in 1991. There is a lot of source material to base the anime on and fans of the series will hope that Netflix continues to adapt more of the manga into anime seasons.
