Total Seasons of Baki
Now, I know while searching for the anime, you may get confused about how many seasons Baki actually has. Let me break it down for you.
Studio Group TAC released the anime adaptations of Grappler Baki and Grappler Baki: Sadai Tournament-hen in 2001. After that, TMS Entertainment took over the show and produced two new seasons of it, aligning with the prequels. Season 1: Baki and Season 2: Baki, Dai Raitaisai-hen was aired in 2018 and 2020 respectively.
Now, when Netflix started airing the Baki season 1, this was divided into two parts. Therefore, Netflix followers named Baki Season 2 or The Great Raitai Tournament Saga as the third season of the series.
When Baki Season 4 will come?
At the end of last year, the trailer of Season 4: Son of Ogre was released on Netflix. It is possible that the series will come back by the end of 2021.
The storyline of Baki:
Yuujirou Hanma and Emi Akezawa gave birth to an amazing child Baki, who had only one passion- fighting. His mother supervised him from the very beginning of his training but when he grew up, he started learning about various forms of Martial Arts from different masters around the world.
Baki started to train every muscle of his body and also his soul to master every exceptional and unique move of Martial Arts to defeat the strongest competitors. Along the way, he formed an unbreakable bond with everyone he defeated.
Season 1 and 2 mostly focused on the training period and some history of Baki. The character development of this season was outstanding. Competing in various tournaments and sharpening new skills made his strength unthinkable and his fame helped him encounter five more dangerous fighters of the underground world.
In Baki Season 3 viewers had seen the hardship of Baki as he was poisoned from his last battle. Even though he was standing on the verge of death, he was still thinking about fighting and surpassing his father.
Retsu Kaiou, his friend, took him to China to treat him. But as fate decided, they came to know that the famous and adventurous Raitai Tournament which only held once every 100 years, had started.
However, Baki couldn’t encounter his father to defeat him, but put all his years’ hard work to win the battle with Mohammad Alai Jr. and tried to win the next Sea King title.
Therefore, Season 4 will cover the arc where we will get the answer whether Baki has the ability to defeat the strongest fighter on earth, his father.
According to MyAnimeList, Baki Season 4 ranked 2752 and the users gave it 7.21 stars out of 10.
IMDB rated the season 6.7 out of 10.
Most of the fans of Baki received season 4 as an enjoyable one. Although some of them complained about the animation and graphics, others appreciated the storyline and fight scenes.
Among various anime released in recent years with eye-catchy graphics and designs, the producers of this series kept the animation of this anime according to the manga. So, you may think the animation was done years ago, but that is definitely not the case.
Why does Baki want to defeat his own father?
Answer: Baki’s mother Emi challenged his father to a fight and died a respectable death. These insane parents wanted to make their son more powerful than anyone in this world. So, basically, Baki’s father killed his mother to motivate him to try harder.
What should I watch after watching Baki Season 4?
Answer: If you are hyped watching the fighting scenes of Baki and still want to watch more sports and action anime like this one, you can start watching Kengan Ashura. Kengan Ashura Season 3 will be released soon. So, it will be a wise decision to watch the prequels now.
The dialogues, fight scenes, and diversity of characters made Baki Season 4 stand out other than most other action anime. The loyal fanbase supported this anime from the very beginning and would like to know what will happen when he faces his inevitable fate.
