Season 2 was released recently in April and fans couldn't keep their calm, especially because the studio took a long time to finally release the second part of the first season all over the world!
Anime fever is certainly not going to cool down fans, especially after knowing that 'Baki' is getting its third season! 'Baki' is a Netflix Original anime based on the manga called 'Baki The Grappler'. The franchise has been the most popular one for almost three decades now, first premiering in 1991. 'Baki' is undoubtedly the favorite amongst those who love their martial art titles. In 2018, it first arrived on Netflix Japan, and later in December 2018, it was released globally.
Baki Hanma is a character who wants to proves that he is a better fighter than his father. Therefore, he travels the world to refine his skill as a fighter and become the world's strongest martial artist. He is a potential threat for the five of death row's most brutal and violent inmates, who believe that Baki will destroy them. During his journey, Baki meets a friend who joins him in his journey and who fight by his side in the world's deadliest tournament to support his friend.
Except for Japan, the world was waiting for the global release of season 2. Japan is the first country to receive any brand new episodes of Baki. It was in June 2018, when the episodes of the first season aired week to week, with all 26 episodes in Japan. It then arrived on Netflix globally. For global viewers, the first season was split in half but was identified as seasons 1 and two. However, all 26 episodes in Japan comes under one season.
But, for the global audience, season 2 was released recently in April and fans couldn't keep their calm, because the studio took a long time to finally release the second part of the first season all over the world!
Yes, there will be. Martial arts anime fans will be happy to hear that Baki is indeed returning for a third season. We have been aware of the renewal since March after the official Baki account confirmed Netflix's renewal for another season. Global fans will be delighted to know that 'Baki' will not only have season 3 but 4 as well! As mentioned earlier, in Japan season 1 consisted of 26 episodes, but for the rest of the world, the first season was divided into two. Knowing the fact that another season is on its way with 26 episodes, the third and fourth seasons will have 13 episodes each for the global audience. How exciting is that?
We are still waiting on confirmation on when Baki will return in Netflix Japan. However, the next season will air in Japan first before premiering on Netflix for the global audience. If at all the next season of Baki releases in June, then fans can expect season 3 to arrive in December 2019. But, if Baki releases post-June, then fans will have to wait till 2020 for it to be shown on Netflix globally.
