Netflix to Stream 2nd Half of ‘Baki’ 3 Months After Japanese Airing

TMS Entertainment’s adaptation of Baki has finally launched on Netflix — but it’s only the first 13 episodes. It’s a bloody good time for fans craving brutal hand-to-hand combat, but the cliffhanger after the first cour will lead to a frustrating wait for the other half of the series.

To help alleviate some of the pain, a member of Netflix’s staff confirmed that the final 13 episodes will air on March 19 — a full three months later. This means that Baki fans will have to wait nine months to binge the entire season, which originally aired in June 2018 in Japan.

Baki is based on Keisuke Itagaki’s long-running Baki the Grappler manga series. Specifically, it’s an adaptation of the “Most Evil Death Row Convicts”, which showcases Baki challenging the world’s five most brutal death row inmates. The inmates want nothing more than to taste defeat at Baki’s hands, but they won’t go down easily.
