There are still story arcs that can be used as source material for 'Baki Hanma' season 2.
‘Baki Hanma,’ alternatively known as ‘Hanma Baki: Son of Ogre,’ is a Shounen action-adventure original net animation based on a manga series written and illustrated by Keisuke Itagaki. Studio TMS Entertainment created the first several seasons of the 'Baki' anime, helmed by Toshiki Hirano and written by Tatsuhiko Urahata.
The first 'Baki' season scored a solid 7.21 out of 10 on MyAnimeList. The second season scored a 7.47 out of 10. There has been some confusion online whether 'Baki Hanma' was a direct continuation of the main 'Baki' series. The bafflement primarily came from Netflix labeling the individual parts of the Baki broadcast differently to the original Japanese series.
However, the released 12-episode run is a sequel to the main series, which means that any future content would be 'Baki Hanma' season 2 and not 'Baki' season 4.
Here is what we know about 'Baki Hanma' Season 2 so far.
As of this writing, TMS Entertainment production company or Netflix has not renewed 'Baki Hanma' for season 2 yet.
However, with the series' popularity, fans can be confident that Baki will eventually return for another round of fighting in the future.
On September 30, ‘Baki Hanma: Son of Ogre’ season 1 premiered on Netflix. It consisted of 12 episodes with a running time of 24 minutes each. All 12 of the episodes were streaming exclusively on Netflix.
As of this writing, Netflix has not made any official announcements regarding the release date of the second season of 'Baki Hanma.' However, since 'Baki' series is one of Netflix’s most popular anime series, the second season will likely happen in the future.
'Baki Hanma' season 1 adapted the first two-story arcs from the manga series: 'The Combat Shadow Fighting Saga' and the 'Superior Prison Battle Saga'.
For that reason, the second season is expected to continue this setup and also adapt the next two story arcs, 'Wildman War – Pickle War Saga,' and the 'Warrior’s Struggle Saga'.
The final scene from episode 12 showcased the main antagonist from the Pickle War Saga, a man trapped in the ice called ‘Pickle’.
Here is the synopsis of the story arc.
“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 a lot of powerful fighters.” – Pickle War Saga synopsis via Baki Fandom.
'Baki Hanma' series casts are mostly the same as the ‘Baki’ series. It means that most of the cast and voice of the first season will return.
