Sentai Announce Home Video Plans for Baki

After airing in Japan back in 2018, US-based anime publisher Sentai has confirmed they will be delivering a home video release of brutal martial arts anime Baki in the near future. This release, most likely on Blu-ray, will feature the original Japanese voiceovers with English subtitles, along with a newly commissioned English dub.

BAKI is based on the original 90s manga by Keisuke Itagaki, which is still going to this day. This anime adaptation adapts the second manga series, titled “Most Evil Death Row Convicts Saga”. Produced by TMS Entertainment (Gugure! Kokkuri-san, MEGALOBOX , LUPIN THE 3rd) and directed by Toshiki Hirano (Vampire Princess Miyu, Magic Knight Rayearth, Magic Kaito), BAKI features series composition from Tatsuhiko Urahata (GATE, Black Bullet, Monster).

The show’s English voice cast is still being kept under wraps, but the Japanese voice cast includes Nobunaga Shimazaki (Waiting in the Summer, My Love Story!!, Black Clover) as Baki Hanma, Takuya Eguchi (My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU, Mysterious Girlfriend X, 91 Days) as Kaoru Hanayama, Takayuki Sugo (Gintama, Princess Principal, Golden Kamuy) as Doppo Orochi, Rikiya Koyama (Ushio and Tora, GATE, Hajime no Ippo) as Sea King Retsu and Shimada Bin (Saint Seiya, One Piece, Mobile Suit Gundam I) as Goki Shibukawa.

In this anime series, Five vicious convicts escape death row. They make their way to Tokyo intent on committing violent blood sport. Now they’re after Baki Hanma. With the onslaught looming, Baki must enlist Kaoru Hanayama, Doppo Orochi, Sea King Retsu and Goki Shibukawa, each with his own unique combat ability, if Baki wants to live to brawl another day.
