New Baki Gaiden Manga: When Did Baki Manga Finish?

It was announced on Tuesday by the October issue of Akita Shoten’s Monthly Shnen Champion magazine that Takaaki Hayashi is creating a new Baki Gaiden spinoff manga titled Baki Gaiden: Gaia to Sikorsky, which will debut in the November issue of the same magazine on November 6. The first page of the manga will be coloured. Hayashi tweeted a screenshot of the news announcement.

The magazine hints that the manga will take place a few days after the main story’s climactic confrontation between Gaia and Sikorsky, and that it will feature a “rematch” between the two on a “battleground four and a half tatami mats big,” a reference to the typical size of a Japanese dwelling.

Hayashi describes the manga as one in which Gaia and her alternative self, Sikorsky, live together “occasionally with Nomura.”

More than 63 million copies of the 42 compilation book volumes from Akita Shoten of Keisuke Itagaki’s original Baki The Grappler (Grappler Baki) martial arts manga are in circulation. The manga ran in Akita Shoten’s Weekly Shnen Champion magazine from 1991 to 1999. Two television anime seasons and an original video animation (OVA) volume were produced based on the series.

The second major entry in Itagaki’s overall franchise is the manga sequel simply titled Baki. During its run in Weekly Shnen Champion, which spanned from 1999 to 2005 and resulted in 31 volumes, the manga was also serialised in other media.

Two earlier Netflix anime episodes were based on the manga, and an OAD adaptation depicts the “Most Evil Death Row Convicts” arc. This OAD was included in a special edition of Itagaki’s Baki-Dou manga volume 14 which was released in December 2016.

Hanma Baki ran in the same magazine as the original Baki manga from 2005 to 2012. As the third primary sequel to the original Baki The Grappler manga, the Baki-Dou sequel series began in Weekly Shnen Champion in March 2014 and concluded in April 2018. In 2018, readers were introduced to Bakidou, the manga’s fifth and final main portion.

The first 12 episodes of TMS Entertainment’s Baki Hanma anime premiered on Netflix in September 2021. There will be a second season of the anime.

In the first edition of Bessatsu Shnen Champion magazine in 2012, Yukinao Yamauchi (Baki Gaiden – Scarface) introduced Baki Gaiden: Kizuzura, a spinoff of Baki The Grappler. Baki Gaiden: Kenjin is yet another spinoff that was first published in 2013 by Champion RED magazine.
