The new trailer for Baki Hanma, third anime series based on the fighting game manga Baki Hanma: Son of Ogre written and drawn by Keisuke Itagaki (father of Paru, author of Beastars).
The promotional video, which we can see below, reveals the release date of the new season on Netflix and presents a preview of “Unchained World”, the final theme song of the anime performed by the band GENERATIONS from EXILE TRIBE.
Release date and trailer for Baki Hanma
Baki Hanma will debut on September 30, 2021, with all 12 episodes of the series, in all countries where the streaming service of the red N is active.
In the new season, the protagonist will have to contend with other dangerous creatures in extreme combat with martial arts, ending up also facing the same father, considered the strongest living being.
Netflix, in fact, describes the series as follows:
The story eventually develops leading to a cold-blooded confrontation between Baki Hanma and his father, Yujiro Hanma, known as the “strongest creature on earth”. The culmination of the Baki universe, which in the original manga is presented as the “greatest parent-child brawl in the history of the world” is finally here.
The first two seasons of Baki
Consisting of 26 episodes, the first season of Baki debuted in Japan in 2017 and then landed on Netflix, entirely dubbed in Italian, in December 2018.
The second season, focused on the narrative arc called the Great Chinese Challenge of the manga, instead landed on the streaming catalog of the Scotts Valley company last June.
Recall that a fourth season of Baki has already been announced by Netflix.
The original manga
The original manga Baki The Grappler (Grappler Baki) by Keisuke Itagaki was published in Akita Shoten’s Weekly Shōnen Champion magazine from 1991 to 1999 and the 42 volumes of books collected by Akita Shoten have more than 63 million copies in circulation.
