Baki Hanma is back in a new anime from TMS Entertainment and Netflix titled Baki. This new series will follow the “Most Evil Death Row Convicts” arc from Keisuke Itagaki’s bestselling fighting manga. And now, TMS Entertainment has started streaming a new PV for the upcoming anime, which also introduces the characters. Of course, this includes those “Most Evil Death Row Convicts”.
Here’s how Netflix describes the new anime’s story:
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!
Nobunaga Shimazaki will be serving as Baki Hanma’s new voice. He will be replacing veteran seiyuu Masami Kikuchu, who previously voiced the character in previous Baki anime. The anime will premiere in Japan on summer 2018, before Netflix will release it worldwide in autumn 2018. Netflix also revealed that it will have a total of 26 episodes.
