The Death Row Convicts Come to Netflix! Five bloodthirsty murderers escape prison and assault Tokyo.
Facing them is the underground combat champion Baki Hanma, and four elite fighters. The strongest, nastiest battle, and there are no rules. Let the bloodbath begin.
Baki is raised by his wealthy and money-obsessive mother, Emi Akezawa, who also funds his training in the hopes that he can be a powerful warrior like his father. Around the start of the series, Baki outgrows traditional training and heads out to follow the path of his ruthless father’s training and meets many powerful fighters along the way. Eventually, Baki fights his father and is beaten without a challenge. After being beaten, Baki travels around the world continuing his training. Years down the road he finds an underground fighting arena where he fights some of the most powerful fighters of all styles of martial arts. It is here he truly begins to hone his martial arts skills.
The new anime series, titled Baki, aired on Netflix in Japan from June 25 to September 24, 2018. It will begin airing outside of Japan on December 18.
