BAKI A GREAT SHOW but not for all fans
21 August 2007 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I for one love this Anime but going over 48 episodes it may drag out for some fans BUT in my eyes it only helps understand all the people who take part in the show.

Baki is a very interesting hero in this as he is a very troubled young warrior and his father takes the cake in evil bad a55 father awards.

I tell any fans of anime to check this out because it is well worth it but to clear things up this isn't the most blood gory anime out there and yes there is A LOT OF FIGHTING and blood but not on the same level as many other anime titles.

Baki is well worth watching and even though the ending may upset many fans there is always room for more Baki however they decide to go.
