Production Studios consider various financial and commercial metrics before announcing a renewal.
As mentioned earlier, Baki Hanma Season 2 was well-received among Netflix anime s’ fans and was rated 7.9/10 on MyAnimeList.
The second season was also released in two parts, which is why it took almost two years to come out, as Netflix usually prefers quality over quantity when it comes to anime renewals.
Speaking of Netflix, the streaming giant has recently been exploring Asian TV ventures as it has proven successful with the onset of K-dramas and animes.
North American projects have been downsized or cancelled due to the actor and writer strikes, which is good news for fans hoping for more anime content.
On the flip side, the second season ended on a satisfactory note with the Father vs. Son Saga, so Netflix has no obligation plot-wise to continue the series.
However, plenty of titles are available as source material that Netflix may revisit in the future considering the popularity of the Baki series.
Right now, there is no reliable source due to which we confirm that Baki Hanma Season 3 is confirmed, but if not today, then tomorrow we will get to see Baki Hanma Season 3, and if I guess, when will we get to see Baki Hanma Season 3 then Baki Hanma Season 3 release date by end 2024.
BAKI HANMA SEASON 3 PLOT
In the final episode of Baki Hanma Season 3, “Taste of Dad”, its revealed in the MRI scan that Baki’s’ skull has creases and curves resembling the Oni emblem.
Baki s’ girlfriend, Matsumoto, is on good terms despite his absence from her life as he acknowledges her presence in his life after his mother s’ death.
Emi loved Yujiro s’ brutal strength and wanted to attain the love of the strongest person in the world.
Yujiro accepts Emi and together they have a son named Baki who she raised with utmost care.
Baki long for her mother s’ love but Emi wanted him to seek out his father s’ affection as well.
A destroyed-up Baki lies, practically oblivious, however, his battling soul keeps on engaging Yujiro as though as an indication.
Moved by this act, Yujiro readies a pretend Miso soup for his child, similar to a mindful parent does to occupy their kids, and offers it to Baki as the crowd watches, stunned.
Baki expresses the soup to be pungent and tosses it in disturbance, which chafes Yujiro.
Unexpectedly, Yujiro understands that his child has figured out how to cause him to trust in this make-conviction trick, regardless of whether it was briefly, and a feeling of lowliness gets up to speed to him.
Yujiro officially declares Baki to be the most grounded being on earth, and the crowd erupts in delight.
Baki realizes that the main marker of a victor in a fight is the person standing tall and that he has lost this fight against his dad.
Whatever the fight’s outcome, his father considers him an equal, and we can say that his mother’s dream has been fulfilled.
Baki Hanma Season 2 ended the Father vs. Son Saga which means Baki Hanma Season 3 can begin by adapting Baki-Dou manga series.
After a good fight that was seen between dad and son, Baki kept the fight going even after that and training nonstop.
