The 16th issue of Akita Shoten's Shounen Champion of 2019 announced on Wednesday that a second season of Keisuke Itagaki's Baki: New Grappler Baki manga is in production. Netflix will once again stream the new season exclusively.

Based on Itagaki's manga, Baki: New Grappler Baki was serialized in Shounen Champion between 1999 and 2005. The series is a sequel to his original Grappler Baki manga that ran between 1991 to 1999 in Shounen Champion. Itagki penned two more sequels, Hanma Baki and Baki-Dou, with the latter recently ending last year with 22 volumes.

The first anime season streamed on Netflix for 26 episodes during summer 2018 with directions by Toshiki Hirano (Kyuuketsuhime Miyu (TV)) at TMS Entertainment. An OVA to commemorate the franchise's 25th anniversary was bundled with the 14th Baki-Dou manga volume, which shipped in December 2016, and adapts the "Most Evil Death Row Convicts" arc that occurs in Baki: New Grappler Baki.

For my money, excellent news. I've seen series that were crazier, or more violent. But I've never seen a show with the raw enthusiasm for it's lunacy that Baki had. It feels like a secondary school friend breathlessly describing the action movie they saw last night, after a restful 1.5 hours of sleep and a glass of Diet Adderall.

Animation got a little wonky at times in the first season but The fights were too good to complain. I’m hype for season 2!
