Baki Manga Spawns New Spinoff in June
posted on by Egan Loo
The June issue of Akita Shoten's Champion Red magazine announced on Friday that a new Baki Gaiden spinoff manga will launch in the August issue in June. According to the preview, the new manga will chronicle the battles of the "hitokui" (cannibal), a reference to the karate master Doppo Orochi.
Itagaki's original Baki The Grappler martial arts manga ran in Akita Shoten's Weekly Shonen Champion magazine from 1991 to 1999. The simply named Baki sequel then ran in in the same magazine from 1999 to 2005, followed by Hanma Baki from 2005 to last year. Baki The Grappler inspired other spinoff manga before this new one, two television anime adaptations, and an original animation video project.
