Nobunaga Shimazaki voices the lead character in Netflix's adaptation of Keisuke Itagaki's violent martial arts manga
The life of a grappler is tough enough already without being trapped in a maximum security prison where you have to fight a bunch of deranged and murderous inmates for sport, or at least that's the premise of the new teaser trailer for Baki, an upcoming TV anime based on the violent martial arts manga by Keisuke Itagaki.
Additionally, key cast and staff members have been revealed for Baki, including:
- Original work: Keisuke Itagaki
- Director: Toshiki Hirano
- Series composition: Tatsuhiko Urahata
- Character design: Fujio Suzuki
Voice actor Nobunaga Shimazaki (Yuno in Black Clover) plays the main character, martial artist Baki Hanma.
The new Baki TV anime will run for 26 episodes, and it adapts the "Most Evil Death Row Convicts" arc from the 2nd manga series. Baki will begin digital distribution on Netflix in Japan in the Summer season of 2018.
