It’s been a long wait, but we finally have confirmation that Kengan Ashura will return with a brand new full second season in 2023. Here’s everything we know so far about Kengan Ashura part 3 (or season 2 as it’s otherwise known) on Netflix.

Kengan Ashura is a Netflix Original martial arts anime series based on the manga series of the same name by author Yubako Sandrovich. The series is animated by Larx Entertainment and distributed worldwide by Netflix.

Since the Edo period of Japan, combatants have taken part in gladiatorial combat. Within the arenas are the powerful, wealthy, and greedy businessmen that hire gladiators on their behalf in a winner takes all fight.

Bursting his way onto the scene is Tokita Ohma, joining the arenas and annihilating his opponents with ease. His skill and ability to destroy opponents have caught the eye of many within the arenas, with many fighters lining up to take Tokita Ohma on. Tokita Ohma fighting on behalf of the Yamashita Trading Co. takes part in the Kengan Annihilation Tournament. With even more gladiators to fight Tokita Ohma can’t wait to test his might.

Part 2 (Season 1 – Part 2) concluded with Ohma’s fight in the second round, beating Raina and moving on to the third round/quarter-final. Considering there are two further rounds, the semi-final and final, after the quarter-finals. As a result, there’s still a large portion of the story to be covered.
