Baki portrays a story of passion and hard work. Every turn and corner of the series holds the ability to inspire the viewers though at first, it might appear as a basic shonen anime set up in the basic “anime protagonist under training” cliché it actually goes way deeper.
It actually tells a blood-boiling story of a young boy who aspires to achieve something impossible, a story of how a young boy sacrificed so much just to stay on his path to fulfill his aspiration, yet at the time treating others with respect which turn earns him respect. The excruciating pain of hard work and the unbridled enjoyment and happiness one gets on pursuing their passion are all beautifully portrayed in the series. Baki is an anime that holds meaning on different layers and is extremely inspirational. The anime is available on Netflix.

Baki Hanma Season 1 Story
A unique plot that follows the journey of an individual named Baki Hanma, a hard-working guy who aspires to grow strong to such a degree that he can challenge the strongest man alive in the world. However, the strongest man alive, the person who he so deeply wants to defeat in hand-to-hand combat is none other than Baki’s own father Yuujirou Hanma. Baki has been receiving training ever since he was a child, he was trained by a number of teachers however his appetite for growing stronger didn’t get low even for a bit.
To reach greater heights of physical strength and more power with different capabilities he decides to train all by himself. From the age of thirteen, he decided that he will follow in the footsteps of his own father and he dedicated himself to bone-tearing training to master the combat style of “Total Fighting”, with time he grew more and more strong but his world and ideals were totally shattered when he came across his father and realized the true nature his father holds. Disgusted by the nature of his father and his way of life, Baki then embarks on the journey to grow more powerful than his father and to defeat and supposedly kill him in combat. The art of Total Fighting is a mixture of different styles of martial arts making it a lot more difficult to learn yet more efficient to use in combat.
After defeating a lot of skilled martial artists in a tournament, he finally encounters his brother in the battle ring which led to an intense fight, Baki even had the demon/ ogre face on his back but he had to subdue that in order to prevent any lethal consequences upon his opponent. Despite Baki being a fearsome fighter, and a skilled martial artist, he is a very soft charactered person, unlike his father who shows no mercy in the battle ring and fights with murderous intent, Baki is a lot more sensitive person who tries his best to not land any lethal damage on his opponents while he also treats his opponents with respect.
This makes the other fighters he encounters, respect him and show gratitude. It’s Baki’s wholesome demeanor that earns him the respect of other fellow fighters. After winning an underground tournament, he then sets off again on his path of defeating his father, but just before that, a fellow named Tokugawa Mitsunari, who got the second place in the tournament asked Baki to stay on guard as 5 ran away criminals each heavily trained in martial arts are out here in Tokyo.
Since Baki has earned a name for himself as being a strong martial artist it is highly possible that he might come across any one of them, he also reminds Baki that these criminals are dangerous and they are from all over the world, so Baki needs to stay on high alert and beware and that he isn’t only one under the crosshairs of those criminals. This anime follows the journey of Baki as a respectful martial artist as he walks on his path to achieve his aspirations and grow stronger.
