Sentai Filmworks has announced that it has acquired BAKI, the brutal martial arts anime series, for release in a home video complete collection. Sentai’s release will feature the original Japanese with English subtitles together with an all-new English dub.
Five vicious convicts escape death row. They make their way to Tokyo intent on committing violent blood sport. Now they’re after Baki Hanma. With the onslaught looming, Baki must enlist Kaoru Hanayama, Doppo Orochi, Sea King Retsu and Goki Shibukawa, each with his own unique combat ability, if Baki wants to live to brawl another day.
From the mind of the series’ original creator, Keisuke Itagaki, BAKI adapts the “Most Evil Death Row Convicts Saga” of the second manga series. BAKI is produced by TMS Entertainment and directed by Toshiki Hirano, with series composition from Tatsuhiko Urahata. The series stars Nobunaga Shimazaki as Baki Hanma, Takuya Eguchi as Kaoru Hanayama, Takayuki Sugo as Doppo Orochi, Rikiya Koyama as Sea King Retsu and Shimada Bin as Goki Shibukawa.
