‘Baki-Dou’ Manga Will Be Getting an Anime Adaptation

'Baki-Dou' Manga Will Be Getting an Anime Adaptation

The Baki series is one of the best-known and most popular martial arts manga and anime series of all time, right next to Hajime no Ippo and Kengan Ashura (we’re not counting Dragon Ball since it has a fantasy element to it). While not everyone likes the style of Baki, the series is popular, and, in fact, the series has been ongoing since 1991, with six different titles as of the time of writing. The current manga story, Baki Rahen, has been published since 2023.

Many of the series’ titles have been adapted into anime format, including the ever-so-popular Baki Hanma series, but we have recently received confirmation that the fourth title in the series, Baki-Dou, will also receive an anime adaptation in the future, adding to the collection.

Baki-Dou has a total of 22 volumes, and while information on the adaptation is scarce, a PV teaser has been released, so you can actually see that the series is coming back at some point. You can check out the teaser here:

As you can see, the teaser doesn’t reveal much, but it confirms that the manga will be adapted into an anime and we assume it is going to be soon. Whether Netflix will be handling the adaptation is unknown, but we know that the streaming platform has a Kengan Ashura crossover event in store for us, as the Baki Hanma vs. Kengan Ashura anime will stream on June 6, 2024. Netflix’s official description of the series reveals the following: “While martial arts champion Baki Hanma trains hard to surpass his legendary father, five violent death row inmates descend upon Tokyo to take him on.

And this is all we have for you as of the time of writing. Baki-Dou is coming, but we don’t know when or who will be producing the anime, although Netflix does seem like the most likely candidate, as it seems that they are ready to invest in the franchise they hold the rights to. Be sure to keep following us for more updates, as we are going to bring you the latest as usual.
