Sweet! I have liked the newer series more than the older version Funi released several years ago. Better animation and more consistently entertaining fight sequences.

Nice, it took longer way longer than it should have for this anime to finally get a home video release. And I'm really curious what they mean by "all new English dub".

I noticed that they didn't say the same thing when they announced Hero Mask. So either they wanted to proudly say that it had a dub or they weren't allowed to use the Netflix dub and had to rerecord a new dub.

It's a good question. The "all-new English dub" is something Sentai uses when it rereleases something that was previously sub-only, so I could conceivably see it maybe being an oversight in the marketing material this time.


I do like that we seem to be getting an uptick in the number of Netflix shows coming to home video. Sentai seems to have worked out a bit of a niche doing physical releases for shows that streamed elsewhere, so it would be cool if they did more of that since Netflix itself has shown zero interest in physical releases.

It's either just a marketing buzzword or a marketing mistake as mentioned above. I seriously doubt Sentai is going to make an entire new dub for Baki when they have a perfectly good one on Netlfix especially after Sentai passed on dubbing Kaji.
