Netflix’s “Baki Hanma” is the follow-up to the 2018 “Baki” series, and it has recently released the first part of its two-part second season. Fans have been eagerly waiting to find out if Baki will finally be able to defeat his father, Yujiro, and the next installment, coming this August, will provide the long-awaited answer.
The series is based on Keisuke Itagaki’s popular manga “Baki The Grappler,” specifically the third part titled “Baki: Son of Ogre,” released in 2005. It kicks off with the Combat Shadow Fighting Saga and concludes the main story of Baki with the Strongest Father and Child Quarrel Saga. So, viewers can expect an action-packed and intense continuation of Baki’s journey.
