What to expect at Baki Son Of Ogre?
The description of the upcoming anime, as it appeared on the official Baki franchise site, announces that Baki Hanma will be the third installment in its franchise. Baki will challenge his father Yujiro. Yujiro is the strongest creature on the planet and his father accepted the challenge to fight him. When he finally recognizes that Baki is a strong opponent, the long-awaited father-son fight will finally begin.
The original manga was serialized in Akitashoten’s Weekly Shonen Champion magazine. The upcoming anime will also show us how Baki intends to face his father in a new fight. He will face many deadly opponents and eventually he will reach the level necessary to face his father.
But before facing his father, he chooses a perfect opponent to train. He will face Biscuit Olivia, better known as Unchained, whose strength rivals that of Yujiro. Unchained is currently being held at the Black Pentagon, where extremely dangerous criminals are located. Therefore, Baki decided to be incarcerated in the same prison only to meet and fight Unchained.
Other deadly fighters stand in his way, and the only way out is to fight them. The anime will adapt the Black Pentagon prison arc from the manga. So we’ll see how it goes when the anime is released.
