BAKI THE GRAPPLER CHOKING OUT 2018
If you haven't heard the news Crunchy Roll and Netflix have teamed up to bring back a classic back from the world of fighting montages and martial arts based anime. Baki the Grappler is an old school anime from the era of Biggie and 2pac (the 90s if you dont know).
It's recently been announced that the revamp of this Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson JR will first be releasing in Japan in the summer of 2018. Baki the Grappler will release for everyone else in the fall of summer of 2018 so don't fret fellow anime fans, our thirst for bulging muscles, extraordinary fighting techniques, and lovable characters will be quenched soon. According to our snitch, Netflix describes the story:
"The protagonist, Baki Hanma, trains with an intense focus to become strong enough to surpass his father, Yujiro Hanma, the strongest fighter in the world. Five of the world's most violent and brutal death row inmates are gathering to face Baki. Their objective is to taste defeat -- their unmatched strength and skill have led them to grow bored of life itself, and they now seek out Baki in the hopes that he can overwhelm and utterly crush them. In this crisis, other underground martial art warriors gather to fight by Baki's side: Kaoru Hanayama, Gouki Shibukawa, Retsu Kaioh, and Doppo Orochi. An epic showdown between violent death row inmates and Baki and his friends begins!"
