It seems like Netflix is all set to mark this year in their name. In a single week, the streamer has announced two renewals, one after the other. The first one is the renewal of Kengan Ashura Season 3. And now, the content platform has come down to releasing the second season of the much-awaited action series, Baki Hanma. In the latest update by the streamer, Baki Hanma Season 2 got a renewal as well as a release window. Thus, here is everything you need to know about the return of the series.
Being the spin-off of the original Baki The Grappler series, the Baki Hanma anime was first released as an Original Net Animation. TMS Entertainment was the animation company behind the banner. The final episode of the series aired back in September 2021. Since then, fans have been desperately waiting to get an adaptation.
Baki Hanma Season 2: Renewed! Production Updates
All the official pages and socials of Netflix announced this week that the second season of Baki Hanma was up for renewal. After heavy demands ever since September 2021, the streamer finally decided to give a green signal to Baki Hanma Season 2. In addition to the announcement, the company also revealed slight plot details from the sequel.
However, there has not been any word about the production of the series. So, the first season was announced back in September 2020. And the pilot made it to the table in the same month next year. For the sequel’s case, a year would be long enough. But there is a high chance that the production has already begun if the makers are aiming for another September launch.
What Will Happen Next?
As mentioned in the announcement notice of the second season, the sequel will be focusing more on the character of Pickle, a new warrior who belongs to a distant land. The description of the characters tells us that Pickle is an archaic homo spine who used to live in the times of dinosaurs. But after years of training and conditioning, his physique tends to change, unlike the rest of the humans.
While this was kind of a disadvantage in the modern era, his physique was something that intimidated many opponents. Baki Hanma Season 2 will deal with the POV of this character and his fights going on in the modern world.
Baki Hanma Season 2: Release Date
Unfortunately, neither the makers nor the distributors have revealed the solid release date of Baki Hanma. However, a strong bet is on Fall 2022. Since all releases from this banner have come in the September slate, there is a high chance that Baki Hanma Season 2 will also release in September 2022. We will be sure to update this section with all the relevant information as they come. Thus, stay in touch with The Anime Daily to get more updates on the same.
