Baki is a martial arts anime series that first premiered on Netflix in 2018. The show is based on the manga of the same name by Keisuke Itagaki and is a continuation of the 2001 series Grappler Baki. The show follows the titular character Baki Hanma, a skilled martial artist and the son of the legendary fighter Yujiro Hanma. Baki’s goal is to become the strongest fighter in the world, and he is willing to face any opponent to achieve this goal.

Throughout the series, Baki is pitted against a variety of opponents, each with their unique fighting style. He fights against other martial artists, wrestlers, convicts, and even creatures that seem too monstrous to be real. Some of the most dangerous fighters he faces include Doppo Orochi, a karate master and leader of the Shinshinkai Karate style, Sikorsky, a ruthless assassin from Eastern Europe, and Oliva Biscuit, a massive convict with incredible strength.

In addition to the intense fight scenes, the show also explores the characters’ backstories and motivations. Viewers learn about Baki’s troubled childhood and his complicated relationship with his father, Yujiro Hanma. The show also explores the history of other fighters, such as Doppo and his time as a renowned martial artist in his younger years.

One of the unique aspects of Baki is its focus on different martial arts styles and techniques. Each fighter has their own distinct style, and the show takes the time to explore the intricacies of each one. This attention to detail makes the fights more engaging and exciting to watch.

The animation style of Baki is also noteworthy. The characters are drawn with exaggerated muscle tones and exaggerated movements, giving them a larger-than-life feel. This style is particularly effective during fight scenes, where characters unleash their full power in over-the-top fashion.

Overall, Baki is an intense and thrilling martial arts anime series that is sure to entertain fans of the genre. The show’s focus on different fighting styles and character exploration sets it apart from other shows in the same category.
