We know that you’re trying to figure out whether there will be Kengan Ashura Season 3. And we have some exciting news about this martial arts ONA. The first thing we want you to know is that since Kengan Ashura is streaming on Netflix, it will be released in two parts. We don’t want you to mislead yourself by thinking that Kengan Ashura Season 3 has been confirmed since it’s actually not true. Here’s everything we know so far about the possibility of a third season of “Kengan Ashura.”
The story revolves around Tokita “Ashura” Ohma who, after defeating the Nogi Group fighter in a street fight, is recruited by the organization’s CEO, Hideki Noki. Ashura then teamed up with employee Yamashita Kazuo who became her manager. Together, they wade through the brutal and dark world of gladiator fights. The series is filled with gorefest, non-stop action, and martial arts.
Will there be a Kengan Ashura Season 3?
As we know now, Kengan Ashura Season 1 consists of 24 episodes, and it has been split into two parts by Netflix. In the world of anime, we call each part the “cour.” As a result, we are talking now about a two-cour season. Therefore, the first thing we should bear in mind is how much source material we have to date. You most likely know that Kengan Ashura is based on a Japanese manga series of the same name written by Yabako Sandrovich.
The original manga consists of 27 volumes + 1 extra volume to date and Since Kengan Omega 8 Volumes. We frankly doubt that Larx Entertainment, the studio which is responsible for the television adaptation used all 27 volumes for a 24-episode season. Besides, the last volume was released on February 19, 2019, the same year when the anime series premiered. We thereby tend to believe that there remained at least some volumes for another television adaptation.
Another key factor that points out the possibility of renewal is that Kengan Ashura Season 2 has received positive reviews from viewers, given the statistics presented by MyAnimeList. According to their data, Kengan Ashura Season 2 holds a score of 7.96/10 based on approx. 39,000+ votes. On IMDb, the anime series keeps a high rating of 8/10 based on over 4k votes (as of today).
To date, we have no data about the BD/DVD sales of the franchise, though they might clarify the situation. Nonetheless, once we have such data, we will update this forecast.
Kengan Ashura Storyline
The story is taking place during the Edo periods of Japan. In this era, there were a lot of gladiator arenas across the country. These areas served as places where rich merchants and feudal lords bet on gladiators. The storyline centers on Tokita Ohma, known as “Ashura,” who was one of the best gladiators. His impressive possibility of defeating his opponents catches the attention of the big business owners, including the Nogi Group CEO, Nogi Hideki.
Kengan Ashura premiered on July 31, 2019, on Netflix. Kengan Ashura is based on the eponymous manga series written by Yabako Sandrovich and illustrated by Daromeon. The Larx Entertainment studio served as a developer of the television adaptation. Netflix has licensed the anime in North America. Kengan Ashura Season 1 consists of 24 episodes. Kengan Ashura Season 1 Part 1 is set to premiere on October 31, 2019. Kengan Ashura Season 2 is yet to be announced.
Kengan Ashura Season 3 Release Date
As it stands, the Kengan Ashura Season 3 likely won’t be released until either the latter months of 2022 at the earliest or sometime in the first half of 2023. The reason for this is due to two factors. On one hand, the series hasn’t received an official release date. Instead, it has only received an official announcement via Twitter saying that a third season is in production and will once again stream on Netflix. This alone means the next season is still a ways off from being complete, and that both Netflix and Larx Entertainment, the studio animating the show, aren’t comfortable giving a firm date just yet.
At the worst, we will have to wait until Yabako Sandrovich releases more books in the series. In such a case, the waiting could last for years. In any case, we are tracking down all the official Japanese sources on the subject of renewal. As soon as the Larx Entertainment studio reveals any additional information on the subject, we will update this page. So guys, stay tuned for updates. We will keep you informed.

Kengan Ashura Action
Kengan Ashura is a Japanese manga series written by Yabako Sandrovich and illustrated by Daromeon. It was serialized on Shogakukan’s Ura Sunday website from April 2012 to August 2018, with its chapters compiled into twenty-seven tankobon volumes. A sequel, titled Kengan Omega, began in January 2019. It was adapted into an original net animation (ONA) anime series. The first 12-episode part premiered in July 2019 through Netflix. The second 12-episode part premiered in October 2019. A sequel (Kengan Ashura Season 3) has been announced.
Business deals are usually made through meetings and contracts; but in the world of Kengan Ashura, businesses resort to other means to make their decisions: by hiring gladiators. Yabako Sandrovich’s Kengan Ashura depicts a world brimming with action, violence, and martial arts—one where powerful gladiators have fought in grand arenas since the Edo Period to settle the disputes of wealthy businesses and merchants.
Ouma Tokita, who is nicknamed “The Ashura,” is a fighter trying to prove himself as the strongest. Hideki Nogi, a member of the Nogi Group, hires Ouma to fight for him and makes Kazuo Yamashita, an average middle-aged man, his manager. The duo is thrown into fights facilitated by the Kengan Association. Their journey will be full of ruthless battles with other fighters aiming for the same goal. Do they have what it takes to be the best?
