What to expect from the second season of Baki Hanma
WARNING SPOILERS FOR SEASON 1 OF BAKI HANMA
By the end of the season, Baki had gotten his wish and engaged in a one-on-one fight with Biscuit Oliva, the self-proclaimed strongest man in America.
After displaying their fighting skills, and growing bored with the contest, Baki and Oliva resorted to trading blows till the last man was left standing. Baki was able to overpower Oliva, earning himself a pardon and the blessing to carry on his journey to defeat his father Yuujiro.
However, before Baki can face off against Yuujiro, a new contender may stand in his way. Underneath a nuclear waste facility in Colorado, a perfectly preserved caveman fighting a dinosaur has been found. Judging by manga spoilers the caveman is no slouch, and definitely a worthy opponent for Baki before his climactic showdown with Yuujiro.
Both father and son’s fated duel has been described as “like two countries going to war,” but between Baki and Yuujiro all either cares about is fighting the strongest possible opponent.
When can we expect to see Baki Hanma season 2 on Netflix?
Netflix has yet to announce a release date for season 2 of Baki Hanma, however, we would expect to see the martial arts anime return before the end of 2022.
