The first season of Baki Hanma was greeted by a growing fanbase, one that is already looking ahead to season two. The anime, which serves as a sequel series to the three-part Baki, released its first season in Sept. 2021 to an eager audience, many of whom have been following the Baki franchise since its first serials ran in Weekly Shōnen Champion through the ’90s. The popular manga is thriving as an anime, collecting new viewers with each fresh series and gradually growing in popularity.

The first season of Baki Hanma was the most popular yet, drawing in audiences and keeping them enthralled through each of the first season’s 12 episodes. A second season was confirmed by Netflix in March of 2022, but fans are still awaiting news of a release date. When can we expect Baki’s adventures to continue in Baki Hanma season two?

When will season 2 of Baki Hanma release?

We already know that a second Baki Hanma season is incoming, but it took months for Netflix to confirm a concrete release date.

Netflix has a solid track record when it comes to releasing Baki content quickly, jumping from renewal to release for season two of Baki, the series that preceded Baki Hanma, in less than a year and a half, despite staff change-ups. This is good news for eager Baki Hanma fans, many of whom are already thirsty for season two. That thirst will be quenched in just a few short months when season two releases its first half in mid-July.

The season’s official release date took a while reaching fans, but now that we know how soon Baki Hanma season two is slated to arrive, interest in the show is only growing — particularly where the show’s “Pickle Arc” is concerned. The impending “Pickle Arc” is inarguably the most anticipated aspect of season two, and — in great news for impatient fans — it will arrive in tandem with part one of season two, titled “The Tale of Pickle & The Pickle War Saga,” on Wednesday, July 26th. The second half of the season, titled “The Father VS Son Saga,” will arrive right around a month later, on Thursday, August 24th.
