The next round for Baki Kanmi is about to begin. The latest issue of Akita Shoten’s Weekly Shonen Champion magazine announced that the new anime Baki series has been green lit for another season and Netflix will get first dibs on airing the next season.

Netflix ran the series in Japan when it debuted on June 28, 2018. It ran for 26 episodes, ending in December 17, 2018. Netflix began airing Baki outside of Japan on December 18 beginning with the first 13 episodes. Netflix began airing the second half of Baki in March 19.

Netflix describes the series as follows:
The protagonist, Baki Hanma, trains with an intense focus to become strong enough to surpass his father, Yujiro Hanma, the strongest fighter in the world. Five of the world’s most violent and brutal death row inmates are gathering to face Baki. Their objective is to taste defeat — their unmatched strength and skill have led them to grow bored of life itself, and they now seek out Baki in the hopes that he can overwhelm and utterly crush them. In this crisis, other underground martial art warriors gather to fight by Baki’s side: Kaoru Hanayama, Gouki Shibukawa, Retsu Kaioh, and Doppo Orochi. An epic showdown between violent death row inmates and Baki and his friends begins!
