The 32nd issue of Shounen Champion magazine, to be released on July 7, is announcing that Keisuke Itagaki's martial arts manga Baki has received an anime project. An OVA will be bundled in volume 14 of Baki-Dou, which is slated for release on December 6, 2016. More information about the anime project will be announced at a later date.

The Baki series is drawn by Keisuke Itagaki, and the first title in the series, Grappler Baki, received its serialization in Shounen Champion magazine in 1991. The series was serialized until 1998, releasing a total of 42 volumes, with its story continuing in its sequel, Baki: New Grappler Baki, which was serialized in the same magazine the following year. The series has since received two sequels, Hanma Baki and Baki-Dou, with the latter being published in the same magazine as its prequels since 2014. In addition to the sequels, the series has received various anime adaptations, manga spin-offs, as well as video games.

Hopefully, his character remains similar to the first season of Grappler Baki, as opposed to the second. But telling by this cover of this manga (which I haven't read), maybe I'm wrong. My god...that nose!

Either way I hope this project is good. Never checked it out before so ill go in blind.


Heads up but this is the most ridiculous shounen I've ever read. But not in a bad way. Might be different for you though.

What a coincidence that I'm in the middle of the Grappler Baki TV series right now.
I hope to finish it by the time the OVA comes out so I can watch that too.
We need more manly anime like Baki.
Also, that nose looks amazing. Not Kaiji and Akagi-tier amazing though.

I agree, the manliness was strong in this one, but if its going to look like on the cover, idk if im gonna check it out.

Baki was a kickass manga so I'm glad they're doing another anime. People on here won't like this though because people on this site seems to prefer more girly anime.

This won't be a masterpiece, and the old anime wasn't either, but just for the fun why not.

What's even the point, there's no way they can top this amazing OP.


This opening was so bad it was good again. I honestly rarely skipped this opening its kinda catchy after multiple times watching and also kinda funny.

Anyway I'm interested which part of Baki is going to be adapted. And then hoping for a new TV series (with more budget of course).

I use to watch the old baki series when I was younger and I like it. Probably will give this a shot.
