How was awesome was the first season of Baki!? It’s been a long wait since season 1 debuted in December 2018. With fans eager to view more of the martial arts series, subscribers have been clamoring for the season two.
Baki is a famous Martial Art anime based on the manga of Baki the Grappler, the popular martial artist manga is still ongoing and has a total of 132 volumes. In that time there have also been anime adaptations for the different arcs from the manga. Netflix’s acquisition to license the show was a fantastic pull by the streaming giant, and the series has been well met by subscribers.
What can we expect from season 2 of Baki?
More fighting, more violence and oh yeah! Even more fighting! At the end of the first season, Baki’s girlfriend Kozue was kidnapped by the Russain brute Sikorksy. We can expect the season to open with Baki saving her.
Oliva was revealed to be a monster combatant himself and arguably the strongest of the series thus far. Due to Oliva’s influence though he is allowed to freely leave the prison as and when he wishes not to mention the vast wealth of art he has in his private prison ward. Thanks to his power it was revealed that he was the one that captured most of the most powerful prisoners that reside there. It’s inevitable that Baki will eventually fight him if he wishes to become the strongest.

Good news! I can confirm RIGHT NOW RIGHT HERE Baki Season 2 is coming March 19 to the rest of the world. I know it’s a bummer to wait. Our amazing partner rolls out the show weekly in Japan, so that means we work on a staggered timeline to get the show ready for Netflix globally.

What they’re talking about regarding the staggered release date in the Tweet above is the fact that Netflix has to prepare the English dub and subtitles as it gets the new episodes weekly. This means we’ll always have to wait until the new season finishes on
