Adaptation based on brutal martial arts manga continues on Netflix beginning on October 31, 2019
The Netflix original anime adaptation of Kengan Ashura, a hard-hitting martial arts manga written by Sandrovich Yabako and illustrated by Daromeon, continues this month with another 12 episodes of bone-crunching drama, and now a new preview video hints at the action to come.
The original Kengan Ashura manga is serialized in Shogakukan's Ura Sunday digital magazine. The Kengan Ashura web anime is directed by Seiji Kishi and features animation production by LARX ENTERTAINMENT. The first twelve episodes of the series began streaming on Netflix in Japan and other world markets on July 31, 2019, and the next twelve episodes will be available beginning on October 31, 2019.
Netflix describes the story of Kengan Ashura as follows:
Underground gladiator Tokita Ohma fights on behalf of business mogul Nogi Hideki who wagers mega-business deals on the outcome of these brutal matches.
