Two of Netflix’s most hard-hitting anime collide in bloody and brutal new crossover trailer

Two of Netflix’s most brutal anime collide in a new trailer for their surprising upcoming crossover movie.

Until now, Baki Hanma and Kengan Ashura have fought hard – but in their own arenas. Now, in Baki Hanma vs. Kengan Ashura, they butt heads for the very first time in what promises to be a bloody, bone-crunching affair.

As you can see from the trailer above, Baki Hanma vs. Kengan Ashura pits various fighters from their respective anime shows against each other in a furious tournament to see who will come out on top.

Thanks to Netflix's official post, we even know which official match-ups are on the way: first is Kengan Ashura’s Saw Paing up against Baki Hanma’s fearsome yakuza leader Kaoru Hanayama.

Round 2: assassin Raian Kure aims to flex his muscles against the brilliantly named Jack Hammer.

Finally, the main event: series protagonists Ohma Takita and Baki Hanma go head-to-head in a bout the streamer promises "fans will be talking about for years to come".

Debuting in 2021, Baki Hanma follows the titular fighter as he aims to surpass his father’s legacy. A second season debuted in 2023.

Kengan Ashura, meanwhile, sees Ohma Takita embroiled in a shadowy underground fighting ring, one which sees corporate overlords settle their differences – by betting on their chosen fighter.

Baki Hanma vs. Kengan Ashura streams on Netflix worldwide on June 6.
