Baki Hanma Season 2 Anime Series Review – Review

I hate that there’s a sexual assault scene in this season of Baki, and mad enough about it that this review is opening with my analysis of what’s easily the worst part of the season. The second episode of this season opens with revived caveman Pickle sexually assaulting a news reporter live on air. This is gross, gratuitous, and ultimately lazy writing, as there are so many more interesting ways to establish the problems involved in having a hulking caveman walking around in the modern day besides him not knowing what consent is. The anime even features some more thought-provoking problems later on, with Pickle refusing to eat anything he doesn’t personally fight and causing traffic accidents because he doesn’t know what cars are.

The choice to establish Pickle early on by his ability to inflict sexual violence is incredibly frustrating because he’s an entertaining character outside of this! His glee at being able to fight these very serious martial artists while also being utterly indifferent to their very serious philosophies and motivations was hilarious. This dynamic drove home how none of these characters are serious people and instead overgrown children who want to be the toughest kid on the playground and are falling over themselves to fight the new kid who’s one of the best at their game without even realizing it. While I loved when the Raitai Tournament Saga explored the philosophies present in different forms of martial arts, the pure joy expressed by these characters at being able to execute their chosen craft — beating people up real good — at the highest level was equally enjoyable and endearing.

Pickle also embodies a neat thought experiment in martial arts. As noted in the Raitai Tournament Saga — and many martial arts movies broadly — early self-defense techniques come from people trying to mimic the movements of animals as they defend themselves from predators. This inspiration is still overtly present in some disciplines, such as Mantis Style Kung Fu. How would modern martial arts match up against someone who had to survive alongside dinosaurs, the strongest animals in the history of the world, though?

That’s the question at the heart of the first 13 episodes of this season of Baki Hanma, and when it focuses on that question, it’s impressive in a way that’s deeply appealing to my inner twelve-year-old boy.

The back half of the season centers on Baki and Yujiro finally facing off and settling the numerous long-standing beefs between them. While there are side stories, like Retsu getting into boxing and Chiharu Shiba repeatedly challenging Baki to hype up the young man before his fight with Yujiro, the relationship between this father and son is the focus. The exploration of this relationship is also much more nuanced than I expected from an anime with a few episodes that boiled down to, “What if a caveman fought a guy who did a lot of steroids?”

While Baki wants to fight his dad this season, he wants to reframe his relationship with his father more. Baki’s tired of his dad being the most important person in his life while also being an enigmatic figure he knows nothing about. So he decides that, if and when they fight, it’ll be because they got into a disagreement, which would be typical for a father and son, and spends much of the season trying to integrate Yujiro into his life. Baki has meals with his father, learns about food and culture from his father, and eventually fights with him over how he treated Baki’s mother. Granted, that treatment involves Yujiro killing her after Baki failed to defeat him in a fight, but seeing Baki and Yujiro form a more complicated dynamic was refreshing.

Anime, and a lot of fiction broadly, often doesn’t explore the nuance of relationships with characters that can be broadly characterized as abusers. Often, those characters are just villains, and protagonists only see them as hated obstacles to overcome. That’s not how things work in real life, though; this kind of view only gives an abuser more power by making them the center of a character’s life. It’s much more compelling to see Baki try to change his relationship with Yujiro into something where they can both be active participants, rather than the anime framing this as a wholly good vs. evil fight. This isn’t to say that Baki Hanma has deep ruminations on abuse narratives and complex power dynamics, but the characters here felt true to life in a way that both surprised and resonated with me.

The final, multi-episode spanning fight between Baki and Yujiro also lived up to the hype and is one of the best in the series. Of course, these meathead characters wouldn’t truly be able to understand each other and see their personhood without duking it out for a while. The art and animation in this fight are a cut above, even for this visually wild and wonderful series. The visual of Yujiro flexing every muscle in his body simultaneously will haunt me for months, and sequences where Baki metaphorically transforms into a liquid are equally well done and striking. Baki’s VA, Troy Baker, and Yujiro’s VA, Kirk Thornton, are also exceptional in this final bout. Both characters’ identities are laid bare throughout this fight, and both actors do a terrific job of bringing that whole spectrum of emotions to life.

Even if I started this review by focusing on the biggest blemish of this season and perhaps the entire series to this point, this is the best Baki has ever been. It’s completely understandable if this anime isn’t for you, but if you can get on with this ride, it’s a great one. As a fan, this was everything I wanted from the series and more, and anything we might get beyond this will be a fun bonus.

Rocket Panda Games Announces Phantom Breaker: Battle Grounds Ultimate Game – News

Remaster of beat’em up to launch for consoles, PC

Rocket Panda Games announced the Phantom Breaker: Battle Grounds Ultimate remaster game on Saturday at Tokyo Game Show.

Rocket Panda Games describes the game’s story:

A mysterious man known as the Phantom has awakened and hatches a plan to unseal his dark powers. By giving ancient weapons known as the F.A. (Fu-mension Artifacts) to youths with special abilities, he convinces them to battle each other with the promise to grant the wishes of the victors. However, each time the Fu-mension Artifacts are used in battle, they create a rift between parallel worlds, which will inevitably unseal the Phantom’s powers.

Waka, the daughter of the Kumon Family, a clan tasked with protecting the world from the Phantom, and her friend Mikoto, attempt to stop him. However, in an alternate timeline the Phantom manages to escape and kidnaps Waka’s younger sister, Nagi. Waka and Mikoto, along with Itsuki, self-proclaimed “Arbiter of Justice” and Yuzuha, a ninja unpersuaded by the lure of the Phantom, set off to rescue Nagi and stop his nefarious plan.

Rocket Panda Games released Phantom Breaker: Omnia, a remaster of the Phantom Breaker: Extra 2D anime fighting game, in March 2022. Rocket Panda Games acquired the Phantom Breaker IP in June 2022.

Episode 12 – Undead Murder Farce

This episode is a good reminder that “protagonist” is not synonymous with “good guy.” After beholding the gruesome chaos unfolding in the wake of Aya’s investigation, it’s tempting to conclude that both villages might have been better off if her cage had never graced their doorstep. She and Tsugaru don’t seem too concerned about the bloodshed going on around them either. Tsugaru even adds to the body count. Nevertheless, it makes sense when you consider their motivations. Solving this mystery was a means to an end; their true goal was stopping Moriarty from finding the werewolf village himself and using their blood to further his mad lust for power. A handful (or several) of corpses along the way doesn’t factor into their ambitions one way or another.

It’s also worth remembering that both Aya and Tsugaru are inhuman, and they’ve approached all of their cases with a heavy dose of aloofness. It’s especially understandable from Aya, who has been around the block for centuries upon centuries. You’d expect Tsugaru to be more empathetic, and he probably is, but he also strikes me as a guy who was always a bit of an outcast weirdo. While these qualities don’t make these characters more likable in the traditionally heroic sense, it does make them more interesting personalities with more interesting relationships between themselves and others. For instance, I loved their short interaction with Victor. It’s friendly, ruthless, and manipulative at the same time. They’re foes with a common enemy, and you can feel the mutual respect and malice mixing together into a fun, farcical concoction. I hope their correspondence continues into later arcs.

Last week’s focus on Shizuku makes even more sense in light of these current events. Unlike Aya and Tsugaru, and unlike her own stony mien might suggest, Shizuku is genuinely sympathetic and actually cares about the girls who rescued her. She takes measures to avoid making further trouble for Kaya and Vera, and she goes off on her own during the end credits to find Kaya and save her from the massacre (and from Carmilla). Shizuku, consequently, also anchors the other members of the Cage User trio to a baseline of humanity. Aya might not think twice about either set of villagers, but she does care enough about Shizuku to let her do as her conscience dictates. Or Aya is just smart enough to know she can’t stop Shizuku from stumbling into yet another pile of nude women.

Meanwhile, the assault within Wolphinhel reveals the humans greatly exaggerated the indestructibility of the werewolves. That’s hardly surprising; insular rhetoric always breeds all kinds of distortions about outsiders. Wolphinhel’s own insularity does it no favors either. While it has strong warriors, their highly ritualized and segregated society leaves the more vulnerable members open to attack. They value physical strength over solidarity and support. But the humans from Heulendorf are also guilty of this. The abandonment of Louise is the original sin that spurred this entire tragedy. If her parents had loved her as much as Rosa had loved Jutte, then these murders would have never taken place. The varying degrees of individual and collective culpability of both sides, as well as the various sources of third party interference, make it nearly impossible to boil this conflict down into simplistic moral terms. Like many battles throughout history, this one is a confluence of bad decisions on all sides.

Speaking of the murders, I’m not gonna be too hard on myself for failing to foresee the existence of a secret underground tunnel several miles long conveniently connecting both villages. I love, too, that Aya explains its existence in the most insufferably matter-of-fact manner, like it’s the most obvious solution in the world. That’s why she’s the brains of this operation. It’s not just by default. That said, this pretty much confirms that Jutte has been posing as Louise. Rosa showed Jutte the entrance before she succumbed to the fire, Jutte escaped to Wolphinhel and posed as Nora, and then about a year and a half ago she kidnapped Louise and kept her in the tunnel while she lived a double (technically triple) life across both villages. While I’m still fuzzy on what the other double murders were about, I’m fairly confident that Jutte at last killed Louise and used her body to fake her own death. So the grave Vera just opened is empty, while Jutte/Nora is still alive and, presumably, available for explanations next week.

This is the first time I’ve been slightly frustrated with the pacing and structure of the narrative, however. The second half of the episode drags a tad despite all the chaos going on. I liked the London arc’s transition into a free-for-all melee, so this might be a case of diminishing returns on a similar turn of events. The plotting is sloppier here, though, with the Royce agents just happening to stumble on the tunnel, followed by them rounding up the villagers entirely offscreen. Once we get to the action itself, it’s schlocky and over the top in a good way—Kyle knows how to work that chain—but there’s also tonal dissonance with the legitimate horror of the genocide going on. I don’t think that discomfort is necessarily an unintended effect either. If it ties this into the resolution next week, then Undead Murder Farce can definitely still stick the landing.

Bungo Stray Dogs Season 5 Ends With ‘To Be Continued’ – News

The 11th and final episode for the fifth season of the anime based on Kafka Asagiri and Sango Harukawa‘s Bungo Stray Dogs manga ended with the words “To Be Continued” on Wednesday. Technically, the episode’s ending caption in Japanese mistakenly stated that the work was “finished,” but the anime’s official website addressed on Friday that the text was a mistake, and the text should indeed actually say “To Be Continued.” The staff will correct the error in the Blu-ray Disc/DVD release. Crunchyroll‘s subtitle for the ending caption reads “To Be Continued.”

The staff have not officially announced the next season, but it has teased it.

The anime premiered on July 12. Crunchyroll streamed the new season as it aired, and started streaming an English dub on July 26. Crunchyroll describes the series:

Detective employees are caught one after another, and Kamui, the leader of Tenjin Goshui, is closing in on the Armed Detective Agency. Will the Agency survive?!

GRANRODEO performs the show’s opening theme song “Kurogane no Ori” (Iron Cell), and Luck Life performs the ending theme song “Kiseki” (Trails).

The Eminence in Shadow 2nd Season Anime Gets Same-Day English Dub – News

HIDIVE announced on Friday that it will begin streaming the English dub for the second television anime season of Daisuke Aizawa‘s The Eminence in Shadow (Kage no Jitsuryokusha ni Naritakute!) light novel series at 10:30 a.m. EDT on October 4, the same day as the season’s premiere.

The English cast, which features returning members, includes:

Additional voices include Andrew Love, Blake Shepard, Blake Weir, Brianna Roberts, Cameron Bautsch, Cat Thomas, Chris Hutchison, Courtland Johnson, Cyrus Rodas, Elissa Cuellar, Emi Lo, Genevieve Simmons, Heath Morrow, Jack Stansbury, Jay Hickman, Joe Daniels, John Swasey, Joshua Swasey, Jovan Jackson, Kalin Coates, Kyle Colby Jones, Liz Arends, Louis Gallindo, Mark X Laskowski, Patrick Marrero, Scott Gibbs, Shane Fenimore, and Shannon Emerick.

John Swasey is directing the English dub. Kalin Black is writing the script. Brent Marshall is handling the mix. Patrick Marrero is the audio engineer.


The season will premiere on October 4 at 10:30 p.m. JST on AT-X before airing on other networks. The season will have 12 episodes. HIDIVE will stream the anime.

HIDIVE and Kadokawa held a world premiere screening of the anime at Anime Expo on July 1 earlier this year. The main staff is returning for the second season at the studio Nexus.

Music duo OxT return to perform the opening theme song “grayscale dominator.”

The first season of the anime premiered in October 2022, and it ended last February.

HIDIVE describes the story:

Some people just aren’t suited to playing the part of the flashy, in-your-face hero or the dastardly, mustache-twirling villain with larger-than-life panache. Instead, they operate in the shadows and pull the strings of society through wit and cleverness. That’s the role Cid wants to play when he’s transported to another world. Cid spins a yarn or three and becomes the unlikely leader of the underground Shadow Garden organization that fights against a menacing cult (which he totally made up). However, there’s a catch even his wild imagination didn’t see coming: the cult he concocted actually exists, and they’re beyond displeased that his power fantasy just got in the way of their evil plans!


Kazuya Nakanishi (chief animation director for Darwin’s Game) is directing the anime at Nexus (Darwin’s Game, Granbelm). Makoto Iino (Suppose a Kid From the Last Dungeon Boonies Moved to a Starter Town, Demon Lord, Retry!) is adapting Tōzai‘s original character designs for animation. Kanichi Katou (Black Clover, Those Snow White Notes) is overseeing the series scripts. Kenichiro Suehiro is composing the music.

Yen Press licensed both the light novels and the manga adaptation.

Aizawa began serializing the story on the “Shōsetsuka ni Narō” (Let’s Become Novelists) website in May 2018, and Kadokawa began publishing the story in physical volumes with art by Tōzai, beginning with the first volume in November 2018. Anri Sakano launched the manga adaptation in Kadokawa‘s Comp Ace magazine in December 2018. Seta U launched a spinoff manga titled Kage no Jitsuryokusha ni Naritakute! Shadow Gaiden (The Eminence in Shadow – Shadow Side Story) in Comp Ace in July 2019.

The Eminence in Shadow: Master of Garden game launched for iOS, Android, and PC in November 2022. Crunchyroll Games released the game in English.

Atelier Resleriana Game’s Trailer Reveals Theme Song by Reche – News

Koei Tecmo and Gust revealed the cinematic trailer for their Atelier Resleriana: Wasurerareta Renkinjutsu to Kyokuya no Kaihо̄sha (Forgotten Alchemy and the Liberator of the Polar Night) smartphone and PC game during a live stream for the game on Tokyo Game Show on Friday. The trailer reveals and previews the game’s theme song “Saihate e” (To the Far Reaches of the World) by Reche.

The game will launch for Android and iOS devices in Japan on Saturday. The game will launch for PC via Steam at a later date.

Fledgling alchemist Resna (voiced by Saho Shirasu) is the game’s first protagonist, aiming to bring the forgotten art of alchemy to the world. She journeys alongside her best friend and beastgirl knight Isana (Minami Tanaka), self-proclaimed “handsome adventurer” Roman (Yūya Hirose), and Resna’s alchemy teacher Saskia (Mamiko Noto).

Valeria (voiced by Manami Numakura) is the game’s amnesiac second protagonist who awakened three years ago, knowing nothing except how to fight. She works as an adventurer with her partner Heidi (Naomi Ōzora), who is herself a runaway. Both live with merchant girl Flock (Yūko Ōno), who cleans up after their slovenly ways. Flock also keeps an eye out for former sailor turned drunkard Lanze (Katsuyuki Konishi).

Like previous Atelier games, players will be tasked with exploring the wilderness while gathering materials for alechimical synthesis, combat encounters in the wild, and item creation using synthesis. The game will have a “stamina” system (a common mechanic in smartphone games to regulate daily real-life player activity), but progressing through the story will not consume stamina, allowing players to experience the story at their leisure.

Exploration of the field is done linearly, in a system similar to the series’ Nelke & the Legendary Alchemists crossover game. Material gathering and combat progress linearly in this fashion.

Takahiro (Yuki Yuna Is a Hero, Chained Soldier) is in charge of the story and series composition. Series creator Shinichi Yoshiike is supervising. Umiu Geso (Cardfight!! Vanguard, Fire Emblem Heroes) and tokki are designing the characters.


Koei Tecmo Games’ Gust brand’s Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout launched for PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam in North America in October 2019. The game launched in Europe in November 2019, and in Japan in September 2019.

The game is inspiring a television anime adaptation that premiered on July 1. Crunchyroll is streaming the anime as it airs.

Koei Tecmo America released Gust‘s Atelier Ryza 2: Lost Legends & the Secret Fairy game in January 2021 for PS4, Switch, PC via Steam, and digitally for PlayStation 5. That sequel was set three years after the first game in the franchise.

The Atelier Ryza 3: Alchemist of the End & the Secret Key (Ryza no Atelier 3 ~Owari no Renkinjutsushi to Himitsu no Kagi~) game was originally scheduled for release in Japan for PS5, PS4, and Switch on February 22, and in the United States on the same platforms and on PC via Steam on February 24. Gust and Koei Tecmo America delayed the game’s PS4, PS5, and Switch release to March 23 (March 24 in the West) and the game’s release on PC via Steam to March 24.
