Manga ‘Baki-dou’ Receives Anime Adaptation

The official website of the Baki anime series announced on Sunday that Keisuke Itagaki‘s Baki-dou manga is receiving an anime adaptation produced by TMS Entertainment.

Itagaki began serializing the martial arts manga in Akita Shoten’s Weekly Shounen Champion magazine in March 2014, more than a year after concluding the Hanma Baki manga in August 2012. The manga ended in April 2018, and Itagaki began serializing the second part the following October until June 2023. The Baki Rahen sequel manga began serializing in the same magazine last August.

TMS Entertainment adapted the Hanma Baki prequel manga into two anime seasons on Netflix—the first season debuted with 12 episodes in September 2021, and the second season streamed in 27 episodes from July to August in 2023. A crossover anime movie between the Hanma Baki and Kengan Ashura manga series is scheduled to premiere worldwide on Netflix on June 6.

Growing complacent with his title of “World’s Strongest Boy,” Baki Hanma spends his days in a haze of boredom. After finally settling the feud with his demonic father Yuujirou, Baki defends his title in the Kourakuen Underground Arena while stifling yawns brought about by the ease with which he defeats his challengers. Baki’s friends and mentors also struggle with this new peaceful stasis, completing great feats of strength training with little enthusiasm.

Soon, Japan is shaken by the reveal of a long-gestating science experiment that results in the successful cloning of legendary samurai Musashi Miyamoto. The famed warrior relishes in testing his strength against Baki and the other fighting icons of Tokyo, but he struggles to assimilate with the modern era. Miyamoto clings to his ancient ideals of honor and dueling to the death, a philosophy that clashes with the more tranquil present.

As the resurrected swordsman attempts to rise to the top of this unfamiliar society by cutting through Baki’s friends, he finds himself on a collision course with the vengeful teenager. Baki embraces this rush of excitement and meets his new rival head-on. [Written by MAL Rewrite]
