This year's 11th issue of Weekly Shonen Champion is reporting on Thursday that the previously announced new series in Keisuke Itagaki's Baki manga will be titled Baki-Dou (literally, "the way of Baki"). The series will begin in the 16th issue on March 20.
Itagaki's original Baki The Grappler martial arts manga ran in Akita Shoten's Weekly Shonen Champion magazine from 1991 to 1999. Hanma Baki ran in the same magazine from 2005 to 2012. Baki The Grappler has received several manga sequels and spinoffs, two television anime adaptations, and an original video anime.
