Baki: Anime Reveals more voices, trailer and character designs


The official website of the new animated adaptation of the manga Baki by Keisuke Itagaki has revealed a new promotional video, more voices for its cast and character designs. The video shows the new characters, protagonists of the arc of the "most evil Convicts of the corridor of death".


The voices announced are:

Kenjiro Tsuda as Sikorsky


Takehito Koyasu as Doyle


Issei Futamata as Yanagi Ryūkō


Banjou Ginga as Dorian


Chafurin as Speck

They join Nobunaga Shimazaki, who will be responsible for putting the voice to the character that gives the series its name, Baki.

Toshiki Hirano (Rayearth, Dangaioh, Magic Kaito: Kid the Phantom Thief) is directing the anime at TMS Entertainment (Lupin III, ReLIFE). Fujio Suzuki (Shin Getter Robo vs. Neo Getter Robo, 009-1, New Getter Robo) is designing the characters. Tatsuhiko Urahata (DNA², Horizon in the Middle of Nowhere, Tsuredure Children) is in charge of series composition.

GRANRODEO will perform the show's opening theme song "Beastful," and Azusa Tadokoro will perform the ending theme song "Resolve."

The protagonist, Baki Hanma, trains with an intense focus to become strong enough to surpass his father, Yujiro Hanma, the strongest fighter in the world. Five of the world's most violent and brutal death row inmates are gathering to face Baki. Their objective is to taste defeat -- their unmatched strength and skill have led them to grow bored of life itself, and they now seek out Baki in the hopes that he can overwhelm and utterly crush them. In this crisis, other underground martial art warriors gather to fight by Baki's side: Kaoru Hanayama, Gouki Shibukawa, Retsu Kaioh, and Doppo Orochi. An epic showdown between violent death row inmates and Baki and his friends begins!

The manga Baki the Grappler by Itagaki was published in the Shonen Champion from 1991 to 1999, following Baki 2 from 1999 to 2005. Hanma Baki was published in the same magazine from 2005 to 2012. Baki has received several sequel manga, two animated series for television and even an OVA. Baki-Dou started in March 2014 in the Weekly Shonen Champion, being the third sequel to the original Baki.

Recall that Netflix will premiere the series next summer in Japan and in the rest of the world in the autumn, consisting of 26 episodes
