“Baki Hanma,” also known as “Hanma Baki: Son of Ogre,” is an original Shounen action-adventure web animation based on a manga series written and drawn by Keisuke Itagaki.
It comes after “Baki: Dai Raitaisai-hen” and is an anime version of the third manga series in the “Baki” franchise.
It is also the third “Baki” show that Netflix has made.
In the anime, Baki, a wrestler who is 18 years old, works hard to get ready to fight his father, Yuujirou “Ogre” Hanma, who is the strongest person on Earth. Since the first season came out, “Baki Hanma” has been praised for its clear animation and brutal fight scenes.
If you want to know if this show will have a second season, you’ve come to the right place. Everything about Baki Hanma Season 2 will be discussed here.
Baki Hanma Season 2 Release Date
On March 24, 2022, Netflix said that there would be a second season. Like the last season, the show will only be available to stream on Netflix. On September 30, 2021, Hanma Baki: Son of Ogre came out as an Original Net Animation (ONA).
As with other ONA, all 12 episodes came out all at once. Even though it’s been a year, the exact date hasn’t been announced. But fans think that since 2018, there has been about a year and a half between each season of the Baki series.
So, it’s likely that Hanma Baki: Son of Ogre will come out in the summer of June 2023, in June. Based on how things have gone in the past, it’s likely that the staff and cast will return to their original roles.
Hirano Toshiki is in charge of directing the show, Urhata Tatsuhiko is in charge of the music, and Urakami Keiko and Urakami Yasuyuki are in charge of the sound.
GRANRODEO still sings the opening of the show, but the ending is still a mystery because the performer changes from season to season.

Baki Hanma Season 2 Plot Speculation
We don’t yet have an official plot summary for season 2, but it looks like Baki will keep trying to find his father. Baki may need to get over more obstacles before he can do this, though.
At the end of season 1, Baki beat Biscuit Olivia, but because of how the show is adapted, I’m sure there will be another contender, especially after that tease where a preserved caveman fought a dinosaur.
Baki’s next opponent, perhaps? It seems like it, especially since he played a big role in the video Netflix made to announce the second season.
We’ll find out soon enough, and if Netflix gives us hints (and a trailer!) about where the story is going, we might be able to learn more.
Who Will Be in Season 2 of Baki Hanma?
The “Baki” and “Baki Hanma” series were both made by the same studio, TMS Entertainment, and most of the “Baki Hanma” cast is the same as the “Baki” cast.
So, it’s likely that Season 2 of “Baki Hanma” will feature Nobunaga Shimazaki as the main character, Baki, Hochu Otsuka as Biscuit Oliva, Akio Otsuka as Yuujiro Hanma, and others.
Netflix gives information about who voiced the original Japanese characters in “Baki Hanma,” but it doesn’t do that for any of its dubs. Anime News Network says, though, that Troy Baker is the voice of Baki in the English dub.
James Mathis III and Kirk Thorton are the voices of Biscuit Oliva and Yuujiro Hanma, respectively. This isn’t too much of a surprise, since the English dub of “Baki Hanma” and the first “Baki” series used a lot of the same actors.
When Season 2 of “Baki Hanma” comes around, it’s likely that these voices will come back.
