A trailer for the new Grappler Baki anime was just released on Youtube and–HOT DAMN–does it get me excited. As much as I love the charm of the original series, it’s nice to see that the new adaptation will be handled with a bit more care.
Baki: In Search of Our Strongest Hero is based on the Most Evil Death Row Convicts arc of the second series in the manga, simply titled Baki. If it’s anything like the manga, it will be a 26-episode streetfight.
Comicbook.com describes Baki as “Fist of the North Star on Steroids.” I’m not sure I agree with their assessment, but this trailer has me pumped for the new series.
What do you think of the trailer? Are you excited for more Baki?
