After the Most Evil Death Convicts saga and Raitai Tournament, the new Baki Hanma season is set to release on Netflix on Thursday, September 30th, 2021. Weeks before it becomes officially available to watch on the streaming site, Netflix dropped two trailers for Baki Hanma.

Other characters include Rumina Ayukawa and other strong prisoners from the Arizona State Prison. After being challenged by his friends at school, Rumina asks Baki to fight him. Baki gives the kid what he wants. Baki compliments Rumina after he takes a blow and allows him to watch while he's training.

What Is Baki Hanma About?

Baki Hanma: Son of Ogre would focus on the continuation of Baki's training to defeat his father Yujiro. After learning that his father could beat an African elephant in a one-on-one fight, Baki decides to face giant monsters to prove his strength. After taking down a giant praying mantis and a beetle, he would ask Gerry Strydom to let him enter the Arizona State Prison, the home of the USA's strongest man, "Unchained."

However, aside from Oliva, Baki would also encounter other deadly opponents inside the Arizona State Prison.

Does Baki Stand A Chance Against Unchained?

As of now, most anime fans must be excited to see the upcoming matchup between Baki and Oliva. Baki may be expected to win his battle against the giant praying mantis, but "Unchained" is on a different level. "Unchained" is called the strongest man in the United States of America for a reason.

Aside from his formidable body, Oliva possesses skills that could be dangerous even for a fighter of Baki's caliber. However, Baki definitely knows that he would need to overcome Oliva to stand a chance against the strongest creature on the planet, Yujiro.
