Baki is exactly what it's supposed to be but this season has some issues.
28 January 2019 | by powerofberzerkerSee all my reviews

  • ''Baki'' (2018) starts were the previous anime ''Grappler Baki'' left off and it jumps straight to the point. Death penalty prisoners who are all beasts in their own respective way escape in impossible manners and are on the hunt for every strong person so they can eventually, maybe, be defeated which is something they still haven't felt being all powerful as they think they are.
  • Baki and the crew decide to contest them and meet them head on in series of skirmishes filled with martial arts and weapons because these prisoners aren't very prideful and they'll do anything to win. I would describe the show like if Mortal Kombat had an anime set in modern age. Brutal fights, bizarre characters and events and all around shlock. Animation is not that good but it really doesn't have to be. Art is pretty good but the sudden shifts between 2d and 3d are kind of jarring. The soundtrack is fine and though not better then the previous show it has the same feel but the opening songs are great especially the second one. One more thing that was off is the way villains go from terrifying to not in the same league as our heroes, getting beat up by everyone and toyed around.
  • The key factor of entertainment in Baki is it's ever-growing passion and sporty sense in which it is portrayed. It knows what it is and fully embraces that. Perfect guilty pleasure material for gym goers and martial arts nerds, *cough* I mean, for menly men!
