With a history spanning several decades, the franchise of the Baki has now reached Western audiences through Netflix. Known for its outstanding anime selection, Netflix stands alongside Crunchyroll as one of the top streaming services for anime enthusiasts.
Netflix: Baki Hanma Season 2 Release date
The Second season of Baki Hanma will be divided into two parts. The first part will be available on Netflix starting Wednesday, July 26th, 2023, while the second part will be released on Thursday, August 24th, 2023.
- Part one of the second season, titled ‘The Tale of Pickle & The Pickle War Saga,’ will be released on Netflix in the UK and the US on Wednesday, July 26th, 2023.
- Part two, named ‘The Father VS Son Saga,’ will be released less than a month later. Interestingly, this release strategy is very different from Netflix’s usual ones.
Is there enough manga material for this second season?
In the First season of Baki Hanma, the TV series followed the storyline of the first two arcs from the manga series: The Combat Shadow Fighting Saga and the Great Prison Battle Saga.
Based on this pattern, it is reasonable to expect that Season 2 will continue in the same format and adapt the next two story arcs: the Pickle War Saga and the Warrior’s Struggle Saga.
How many volumes did Season 1 cover?
- Season 1 covered approximately 10 Volumes of the original manga series. The exciting news is that in Japan, a total of 37 Volumes of manga have been published.
- So, there is plenty of content available for at least two more seasons of the Baki Hanma anime series. The series concluded its serialization officially in October 2012.
Plot of Baki Hanma Season 2: Pickle vs Baki
Baki Hanma season 2 will continue with the journey of Baki attempting to defeat his father, Yujiro Hanma. However, before Baki can defeat Yujiro, he must face his most challenging opponent, Pickle. Pickle is a primitive man who was discovered and preserved in salt rock.
Baki’s battle against his father may take a secondary role as Pickle enters the picture. But I must admit, I’m curious to see how Baki will use his techniques against a warrior from an ancient, primitive era.
Cast of Baki Hanma: The Son of Ogre Season 2
Joining the cast of Baki Hanma Season 2 are Takeshi Kusao as Pickle and Nobuo Tobita as Dr. Albert Payne, along with the returning voice actors from Season 1. Here’s the list in case you forgot:
