Streaming giant Netflix is bolstering its anime library with new original series, including Kengan Ashura. Based on a popular manga by writer Sandrovich Yabako and artist Daromeon, this action-packed series pits two businessmen against each other in battles that determine the financial future of the world.

Theme song

Kengan Ashura was an anime that caught the attention of many people for its unique fight sequences and CGI animation. It was based on Yabako Sandrovich and Daromeon's manga that was published from 2012 to 2018 in Shogakukan's Ura Sunday magazine.

In the world of Kengan, businessmen hire fighters to compete in brutal battles that protect their companies' corporate rights. They bet huge amounts of money on the outcome of these battles, and even put their companies on the line if they lose.

The story of the series revolves around salaryman Kazuo Yamashita and underground gladiator Ohma Tokita, nicknamed "Ashura." Their bond begins as they take part in Kengan matches. But it soon leads to a deadly conflict when they are both invited into the Kengan Annihilation Tournament by Hideki, a ruthless business mogul who wagers big amounts on the outcomes of these brutal battles.


Kengan Ashura is a high-octane gladiatorial anime from Larx Entertainment (a subsidiary of Studio Hibari) directed by Seiji Kishi. The series follows Oma Tokita, a high school student who becomes involved with a world where corporate disputes are settled through brutal gladiator bouts.

The Kengan matches take place across Japan and pit tycoons against each other in hand-to-hand battles. The winner takes all the money and businesses.

After a street fight, Yamashita Kazuo recruits Tokita to represent the Nogi Group in the kengan matches. Several enigmatic events begin occurring in these matches, all of which center around Oma Tokita.

After winning his first match, Tokita is matched against Penaonic Corporation’s Inaba Ryo. After a brief scuffle, Ryo attacks Tokita and hits him hard. But Tokita’s strong arms and abrasive style of fighting prove too much for Ryo to handle. Eventually, Tokita wins the match by knocking Ryo to the ground and finishing him off with a kick.

Release date

After a successful two-part first season, fans are eager to find out what happens next for the protagonist Ohma Tokita. It seems that they’re about to get their wish as the streamer just revealed the release date of Kengan Ashura Season 2.

The series follows a young man named Oma Tokita, nicknamed Ashura, who is recruited by the Nogi Group as its new fighter at the behest of Nogi Group President Hideki Nogi. The two quickly become close and bond over their Kengan matches.

At the match, the fighters are hired by tycoons and merchants who wager large amounts of money on their victory. These matches are unarmed hand-to-hand combats where the winner takes all.

During the course of the tournament, Ohma meets Yamashita Kazuo, a skittish and meek salaryman for the Nogi Group. The two quickly develop a strong relationship, with Kazuo eventually becoming President of the Yamashita Trading Co. a shell company of the Nogi Group.


Taking the fight-focused anime genre by storm, Kengan Ashura captivated viewers with its intriguing fight sequences and unique CG animation. The series is set in the world of gladiator arenas where business owners and merchants hire fighters to battle it out in winner-takes-all Kengan matches.

The story revolves around a tough fighter named Ohma Tokita, who aims to prove himself as the strongest fighter in the world. He is hired by a group called Nogi Group, which assigns salaryman Kazuo Yamashita as his manager.

Season 2 of Kengan Ashura is coming to Netflix in 2023, according to a recent tweet by reputable general anime news source @sh0nenleaks (Shonen Leaks). So fans are getting ready for an exciting new season!
