The hard-hitting Baki returns to the small screen in a new anime, which is coming to Netflix in Japan this summer, followed by other regions this fall. Keisuke Itagaki’s series looks as wild as ever in the latest promo, featuring an assortment of underground fighters looking to take on our insanely strong hero.
The latest additions to the cast are Takayuki Sugo as Doppo “Man-Eater” Orochi, Bin Shimada as Gōki Shibukawa, Rikiya Koyama as Kaiō Tetsu, and Takuya Eguchi as Kaoru Hanayama, also known as “Japan’s top brawler.” Check out the new preview below.
The protagonist, Baki Hanma, trains with an intense focus to become strong enough to surpass his father, Yujiro Hanma, the strongest fighter in the world. Five of the world’s most violent and brutal death row inmates are gathering to face Baki. Their objective is to taste defeat — their unmatched strength and skill have led them to grow bored of life itself, and they now seek out Baki in the hopes that he can overwhelm and utterly crush them. In this crisis, other underground martial art warriors gather to fight by Baki’s side: Kaoru Hanayama, Gouki Shibukawa, Retsu Kaioh, and Doppo Orochi. An epic showdown between violent death row inmates and Baki and his friends begins!
