That’s apparently the most asked question right now by Netflix anime lovers.
However, the kind of news I’ve you might get disappointed. But still don’t be.
We’re definitely getting Baki Season 4. It’s confirmed.
And as for the news, we don’t have an exact release date yet. But we do have its exact name.

As you see in the tweet, the announcement was made official on September 25 of 2020.
Now, once again, the question is the same as before – “When can we expect Baki Season 4 on Netflix?”
Well, the expected release date of the Netflix anime is sometime between late 2020 or early 2021.
In the story front, Baki: Son of Ogre will follow the story of the Hanma Baki manga series.
If Baki Season 4 comes out to be as I think, then it’ll be a treat for the fans.
Fans who’ve followed the anime & manga series for decades.
As per the manga series, Baki will take on against Ogre in the martial arts circles, Yujiro Hanma (Baki’s Father).
I’m expecting this fight to be quite exciting. I hope Baki Season 4 won’t disappoint my expectations.

Baki Season 4 Netflix Anime Spoilers
As I said earlier, Baki Part 4 will feature the face-off between father and son.
However, before the final confrontation, everyone has one doubt – “Is he ready?”
Is he ready to take the fight to his father Yujiro Hanma (who is apparently known as Ogre in the martial arts circles)?
So, in order to become stronger & be able to face off against his father, Baki will choose a highly extreme training regime.
And for this, he plans a grand scheme.
All this begins with him going to prison purposefully.
Once he’s in the high-security prison, he’ll challenge their security by kidnapping the President of the United States.
Later, when he’s arrested, he’ll make a request to keep him in the same prison as “Mr. Unchained” Biscuit Oliver.
Remember, it’s all part of the Baki’s plan.
Oliver is known as the strongest man in the USA. In fact, he’s known as the only prisoner who’s technically free in a prison.
Secretly, Oliver is working for the United States government as a high-paid mercenary. He’s essentially used to take out criminals that conventional police and military cannot terminate.
In exchange, he’s living a lavish life in the Prison.
After going through this in-depth plot summary, you might be thinking – “Why?”
“Why Baki is keen on meeting Oliver in Prison?”
“Why he needs Oliver’s attention?”
Baki will be surrounded by prison guards all the time – then why?
“What kind of spectacle Baki wants to create next?”
Well, the possibilities are innumerable.
I know you’re curious, you want to know the reasons behind the plot.
Unfortunately, at this moment we don’t have the answer to all these questions.
And in order to get the answers, you need to wait for Baki Part 4 that’ll go live by late 2020 or early 2021 on Netflix.
Baki Season 4 Japanese Trailer
Months before releasing the official title of Baki part 4, the production house released a teaser trailer of Baki 4. Even though it’s in Japanese, the die-hard fan will be more than happy watching it. Here’s the trailer:
How was it? Did you understand anything? I don’t know the language & there aren’t even any English subtitles. If you do, I would love to know your thoughts on this.
Where to Watch Baki Season 4?
As I said earlier, I don’t know when Baki Part 4 will release. However, once it releases, there are 2 places for you to watch it legally – Netflix & Amazon.
Netflix: Well, that’s obvious. Netflix owns the Global rights to market and stream Baki anime series. Purchase a Netflix subscription to watch Baki anime series and other countless Netflix Original anime that comes with it.
Amazon: At Amazon, you don’t need any subscription. You can straightaway purchase the Baki anime series from Amazon & keep it to yourself for a lifetime. However, in comparison to Netflix, it’s way too pricey. So, go with what’s best for you.
So, these are the 2 options for you to watch the upcoming Baki Season 4 legally.
If you’re into watching online video content through illegal means, you can check out the alternative to premium anime streaming sites.
However, I would not recommend it as these sites may expose you to some kind of online threat.
What’s next for the Baki Franchise
Akita Shoten’s Monthly Shōnen Champion magazine in the November issue revealed a new spinoff to the Baki Manga series. Originally titled as Baki Side Story – Retsu Kaioh Doesn’t Mind Even if It’s in Another World, the spinoff will release in the magazine’s next issue on November 6th of 2020.
