Baki Hanma Season 2: Release Date Confirmed + Trailer Revealed

Baki Hanma season 2 is greenlit for debut!

Netflix has had its toes dipped in the anime industry for quite some while now, which has seen the streaming platform experiment with multiple genres.

One such genre is martial arts, and a fan-favorite anime is an adaption by studio TMS Entertainment of Keisuke Itagaki s’ manga, Baki Hanma.

The story follows Baki Hanma, raised by his wealthy mother, Emi Akezawa. She finances his preparation with the expectation that he can be a strong fighter like his dad, Yujiro Hanma.

Around the beginning of the series, Baki grows out of customary preparation and heads out to follow the way of his relentless dad’s preparation and meets numerous strong warriors en route. 

Ultimately, Baki battles his dad and is beaten without a test. Emi, who attempts to save him, is killed by his dad, making Baki hate his dad.

After being beaten, Baki goes all over the planet, proceeding with his preparation. 

Later, he finds a battling underground field where he battles the most remarkable warriors exhibiting different combative techniques. 

It is here he starts to improve his hand-to-hand fighting abilities. He means to get more grounded and eventually outperform his dad.

Can Baki succeed as he proceeds to persevere and endure the various obstacles in his excursion is the central plot of the show.

Baki Hanma Season One was a relative success, and consequently, fans who enjoyed the anime began to wonder if there would be a second installment or not.

In the final episode of Baki Hanma, “Beyond the Brawn,” Baki gets his wish and goes against Biscuit Olivia, who claims to be the strongest man in America.

After an engaging battle, the two fighters get bored and resort to simply trading blows. Baki overpowers Olivia, thus earning a pardon and getting a chance to fight his father.

The story for the new Baki anime is based on the second part of the Gurappura Baki (Grappler Baki) manga created by writer and artist Keisuke Itagaki. Starting in 1991, the overall Baki manga series has five parts already.

Technically, Baki Season 2 will be the fourth installment of the new Baki series; however, Netflix labeled it differently when released internationally.

Baki Hanma season one ended with the Great Prison Battle Saga corresponding to Volume 10 of the manga, which means Baki Hanma Season 2 part one will begin by adapting the Tale of Pickle Saga/Pickle Wars Saga from Chapters 79 to 185 of the manga.

Following Baki’s battle against Biscuit Oliva, the world’s scientists discover Pickle, a caveman from the prehistoric era. Pickle is then taken to Mitsunari Tokugawa, where he battles many powerful fighters.

Due to his excellent combat ability, Pickle is taken in by Mitsunari Tokugawa and is forced to fight against increasingly powerful foes. 

Meanwhile, Baki undergoes intense training in order to transition from animal-based karate forms to developing his techniques. He’s also given advice and guidance by Retsu and Kaku Kaioh.

Baki must fight against Pickle’s raw strength by enhancing his techniques. Baki’s image training eventually allows him manifest specters of the dinosaurs that Pickle battled in the past, but will Baki’s new martial arts techniques be enough to defeat Pickle’s final form?
