How Many Episodes Will Baki Hanma Have? – Production Details!

For many, Baki is the best Netflix has done with shows, and fans hope this remains true even with the latest season.

As for the voice actors, Nobunaga Shimazaki is returning to play the lead character Baki Hanma.
Baki Hanma (Season 4) Plot
Baki Hanma is the son of Yujiro Hanma, the strongest creature alive on the earth. Yujiro is a one-person army capable of dismantling massive military operations with his fists alone. He can also literally create or stop earthquakes, and his hits are equivalent to nuclear bombs.
Baki’s mother, Emi Akezawa, a wealthy woman, blindly loved Yujiro Hanma and did everything she could to bring up their son in the way he wished. She trained Baki intending to turn him into the world’s strongest warrior. He was literally born to be the strongest after his father.
In season 3, Baki faced monstrous opponents like Yasha Ape and Muhammad Ali Jr, only to beat them all. However, in this fourth installment of the Baki storyline, we will see him finally face off against his father, Yujiro, in what might be one of the greatest anime fight sequences ever made.
Meanwhile, the five death row inmates are beginning to escape from their jail cells once again. In fact, the season 3 finale saw Ryuukou Yanagi actually succeeding in his escape. When the rest are out, fans wonder how they will fit in the plot. Will the inmates look for revenge against past fighters and overshadow the fight, or will Baki and Yujiro knock them out? One can only wonder what’s on their agenda!
