Synopsis

As if bound by fate, five of the world’s most dangerous convicts escape from their respective prisons and converge at Mitsunari Tokugawa’s coliseum, where they seek but one thing: the taste of defeat. It is then Mitsunari who presents them with what they all desire—17-year-old Baki Hanma, the winner of the "most historic tournament ever," along with four other hand-selected opponents. On the spot, it is decided that a five-versus-five battle will ensue between the fighters. The combat can take place anytime, anywhere, and without any restrictions.

With each contender hellbent on gauging their strength against a worthy adversary, a unique no-holds-barred, out-of-the-ring tournament erupts in the heart of Tokyo.

Background

Baki: Most Evil Death Row Convicts Special Anime was bundled with the limited edition 14th volume of Baki-dou. However, the OVA does not adapt from Baki-dou; rather, it adapts from the story arc of the same name featured in Baki: New Grappler Baki.

The OVA serves to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the original manga series and marks the franchise’s first original animation in over 15 years. Around the OVA’s release, it was announced that a full television anime adaptation would follow suit.

Canonically, Baki: Most Evil Death Row Convicts Special Anime succeeds the 2001 anime series Grappler Baki; it precedes the 2018 Netflix original net animation Baki.

This OVA is no more than a preview as listed in the synopsis. But it took just an OVA to get me interested in the manga until an anime is released (supposedly 2018?).
After reading the manga the OVA really highlights the fight scenes in the manga. The story is about 17 (or 15 I don't remember) year old Baki and his fight to become the strongest fighter and beat his dad in a fight. When fighting there are no rules; anything and everything is fair game.
The artwork from this preview seems similar to Drifters (aired Fall 2016). But that is about as ...

Mixed Feelings
Another Baki and another review I guess, and no, it's not surprising that they managed to fit in yet another strongest in their world in this finite short showing of the Netflix series.

This was a hype AMV-like extended trailer that was revealed on the upcoming (at the time) Netflix Baki sequel, out of context, it feels harmless and not a big deal to check out, but if you're watching this back to back with the sequel then don't bother, or do, I don't care, it's your calling, most of the spoilers come from the first and or second episode anyway, so it's passable.
