In celebration of the 25th anniversary, the classic martial arts manga is getting a new anime adaption. Baki the Grappler will return in a new series that is scheduled to launch on December 6. It will be bundled with the 14th Baki-Dou manga volume as a DVD. The original Baki the Grappler debuted in 1991 in Weekly Shonen Champion magazine until 1999. The series was followed by Baki from 1999 to 2005. Hanma Baki ran in the same magazine from 2005 to 2012. The martial art manga has received several manga sequels and two anime adaptions.
