In December 2016, it was announced that the "Most Evil Death Row Convicts" arc of the second manga series will be receiving an anime television adaptation. The 26 episode series is directed by Toshiki Hirano at TMS Entertainment with character designs handled by Fujio Suzuki and scripts overseen by Tatsuhiko Urahata.
The anime series started to stream on Netflix on June 25, 2018 in Japan, and it will start to stream on Fall 2018 outside Japan. Its opening theme song is "Beastful" by Granrodeo and its ending theme is "Resolve" performed by Azusa Tadokoro with lyrics by Miho Karasawa. The series started to air on several Japanese television channels beginning with Tokyo MX1 on July 1.
The series adapts the Most Evil Death Row Convicts Saga of the second manga series. The protagonist, Baki Hanma, trains with an intense focus to become strong enough to surpass his father, Yujiro Hanma, the strongest fighter in the world. Five of the world's most violent and brutal death row inmates are gathering to face Baki. Their objective is to taste defeat - their unmatched strength and skill have led them to grow bored of life itself, and they now seek out Baki in the hopes that he can overwhelm and utterly crush them. In this crisis, other underground martial art warriors gather to fight by Baki's side: Doppo Orochi, Kaoru Hanayama, Goki Shibukawa, and Kaioh Retsu.
